SINGER/SONGWRITER/PIANIST AKIE BERMISS SLATED TO REJOIN
LAKE STREET DIVE’S EXTENDED NATIONAL CONCERT TOUR MAY 5 – SEPT 1
Keyboardist/vocalist Akie Bermiss performs a featured duet with Lake Street Dive lead singer Rachael Price on the band's national concert tour.
April 12, 2017 - New York, NY - Music protégé and cutting-edge solo
songwriter/singer/pianist Akie Bermiss, who was snagged by popular indie multi-genre
band Lake Street Dive to play keyboards and provide backing vocals on the first leg of their
25-city national concert tour which was launched in mid-February, is scheduled to rejoin
the band for most of their newly scheduled concert tour dates. The extended tour will be
kicked off on May 5th at the internationally acclaimed New Orleans Jazz & Heritage
Festival. Lake Street Dive has added over 30 new tour dates that will carry through early
September in support of their latest CD, “Side Pony.”
Over the past half a dozen years, Bermiss has become a visible contributor to the fertile
Brooklyn music scene as a musician, songwriter or featured vocalist with a collective of
upstart groups such as; FutureSoul band Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, Miri
Ben-Ari (the Hip Hop Violinist) and Rap sensation Soul Khan. He also birthed the Akie
Bermiss Trio, independently released his first self-titled solo EP (via Rockwood Records in
2014) and continues to mine a loyal fan base performing frequently at cutting edge venues
like Rockwood Music Hall , The Falcon, BAM Cafe and The Apollo Cafe, among others.
The Lake Street Dive quartet features lead singer Rachael Price, Mike “McDuck" Olson
(trumpet, guitar), Bridget Kearney (acoustic upright bass) and Mike Calabrese (drums).
The new leg of their national tour will feature them supporting Jack Johnson on three
shows, (July 8, 9, 10), four shows with Amos Lee (July 24-28), and one show with Daryl Hall
& John Oates (Sept 1). The tour will also include several dates with special guests
appearances by; Sweet Crude, Sarah Jarosz and Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats.
