City Winery Boston presents John Douglas (of Trashcan Sinatras) plus Lauren Calve live in concert on October 19th at 7:30pm.

Following up from a busy and successful year of music prowess, involving the reissue and UK Top-40 charting of Trashcan Sinatras' debut album 'Cake', 33 years since its original release, John Douglas has stepped into the center stage, releasing his debut solo album supported by a run of concerts around the UK and North America.

One of Scotland’s finest songwriters, and a founding member of Trashcan Sinatras, Douglas has opened a new chapter in his life with the release of his eponymous debut album, via Reveal Records. Presenting an intimate snapshot of the talent, charisma and depth of this celebrated songsmith. The album was recorded live at Kyoti Studio in Glasgow with producer Mark Freegard (New Model Army, Lush, The Breeders, Del Amitri, Marillion).

Featuring original material and new recordings of John's favourite Trashcan Sinatras' catalogue, and his own rendition of the Prefab Sprout classic ‘We Let The Stars Go’, this album reflects the genuineness of Douglas' music, also demonstrated in recent live peformance videos for 'Lost', 'I'm Not The Fella' and 'Always', plus Trashcan Sinatras' classics 'Oranges & Apples', 'Leave Me Alone' and 'Weightlifting'.

Performing as a solo artist and also as part of his partner Eddi Reader’s band, John has been on the road a lot lately in the UK and Ireland, having also performed with friends like Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Jill Jackson, Withered Hand and James Grant (Love & Money) and Martin McAloon (Prefab Sprout).

John’s decades of music as a vital member of Trashcan Sinatras, and now also a solo performer are based around an unwavering love for stories, for creating moments, and diving into a need for human connection that only happens through the power of songs. From living room shows, to clubs and small theatres, from festivals, to large events, you will always find John connecting with his fans, old and new, and making a difference with his music.

Lauren Calve is undergoing a metamorphosis in her life, a massive shift. You can hear it seeping through every song, oozing out of every lyric, and feel the shedding of her skin with every note on her debut full-length album Shift, winner of the 2024 Wammie Award for Best Country/Americana Album. The subtle and understated yearning in her voice, the intonation in her haunting vocals and delivery, Calve is longing for something more. Through the ten-track collection of songs, she invites the listener to come along on her journey of self-discovery and change, demonstrating a musical masterclass in the art of emotional storytelling.

Shift was recorded in Nashville at 3Sirens Music Group with producer, engineer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Dex Green (Margo Price, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Allison Russell). The studio sessions included Nashville heavy hitters: drummer Fred Eltringham (ACM Drummer of the Year, Drumeo Country Drummer of the Year, Sheryl Crow, Willie Nelson), guitarist Audley Freed (Sheryl Crow, The Black Crowes), bassist Robert Kearns (Sheryl Crow, Lynyrd Skynyrd), drummer Marlon Patton (Larkin Poe, Lera Lynn), bassist Jared Reynolds (Ben Folds), and Joe Costa on the board (Ben Folds).
