Red House April News!
Can we officially say that spring is here? We've had almost a full week of no snow and temperatures that don't force you to clench as you step outside. 
Of course with spring comes new releases and tours! Ray Bonneville and Carrie Elkin & Danny Schmidt are gearing up for fresh new CDs while Eliza, Claudia, and John continue to get high praise for their new records. Read on to find out about the upcoming new records, tours, and an amazing show over the 4th of July weekend!
Happy April!

Easy Gone Out April 15th!
Easy Gone
Celebrate the end of another tax season with some smokin' new music from Ray Bonneville. On Tuesday, April 15th he'll release his brand new record, Easy Gone. This blues-infused masterwork is full of dark, shadowy characters with Ray's rich voice narrating their stories and shows why his style draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois.  
From the opener "Who Do Call the Shots" to the mysterious "Mile Marker 41" Easy Gone is full of soulful songs that balance thoughtful observation, impassioned emotion and the restless soul of a wanderer. 
Order your copy of Easy Gone today!
Carrie & Danny Duo Debut!
Pre-Order For Keeps
After years of performing together, Carrie Elkin & Danny Schmidt will release their duo debut album on Red House on May 13th! The record is an exciting project from two of Austin's beloved songwriters. 
The 10 songs on the record are an intriguing, honest peek into the dialogue of a couple, lending perspectives on community and friendship, on communication, on building a life together, on marriage, on fertility, on difficult times together and on the easy-loving ones.  "It's the stuff we all talk about, or all don't talk about, but should," Danny says.
Our friends at American Songwriter are currently streaming "Two White Clouds" and "Echo in the Hills," from the record. Stream them here!
Eliza UK Tour!
Eliza's Tour Schedule
We couldn't be happier with the response to Eliza Gilkyson's brand new record, The Nocturne Diaries. It's getting rave reviews from critics and fans! The album is being lauded by All Music Guide, American Songwriter, CMT, and No Depression , as well as you all!  
Eliza has been touring around the US since its release, but in May she'll skip across the pond for a month-long tour in the UK. Visit Eliza's website for all the nitty-gritty on her UK dates. 
In the meantime, you can still download the song "Fast Freight" for FREE from our Soundcloud page.
