PRESALE: The password for this presale offer is RAWLINGS17. Offer valid Thursday, September 28 from 10am-10pm.

David Rawlings is a guitarist, songwriter, producer, and singer — mostly in that order — who plies his trade on a 1935 Epiphone Olympic, for which he’s gained a devoted following for getting more action out of the small arch top guitar than most guitarists get out of modern electrics. Rawlings first came to prominence in 1996 with the release of musical partner Gillian Welch’s debut album, Revival.

Rawlings and Welch began playing live shows with various musician friends in 2006 under the moniker the David Rawlings Machine, featuring Rawlings as frontman for the first time. That experiment led to the 2009 debut under that moniker of A Friend of a Friend, released on his and Welch’s Acony Records label. Over the next six years, he and Welch toured but didn’t record, though he worked on albums by Damien Rice and Willie Watson. In 2015, the David Rawlings Machine re-emerged with the seven-track mini-album Nashville Obsolete. Two years later the guitarist and Welch took a crack studio band that included Watson, Paul Kowert, Brittany Haas, Ketch Secor, and Taylor and Griffin Goldsmith of Dawes into Nashville’s Woodland Studio. Recording on analog tape, the week-long sessions were engineered by Ken Scott and Matt Andrews, and netted the ten-cut Poor David’s Almanack, released by Acony in August and immediately followed by a tour with the David Rawlings Machine.
