Tea and Sympathy

From Minneapolis, the band’s tasty folk/alt/rock sound, with the emphasis on Corbett’s haunting vocals and lyrics, will appeal to fans of Aimee Mann, Kristin Hersh, Ani DiFranco and Hope Sandoval. Alicia’s perceptive song-writing places her squarely in that body of unsung master chroniclers of modern America today. She is accompanied on this tour by long-time colleagues Kurt Koppelman on Mandolin, Michael Koppelman on bass/guitars and Bryce Walsh on Bass.

Alicia Corbett is the John Banville of songwriting. Her songs pull back the layers and delve deep into the minutiae of what it is that makes us tick. Examining the lyrics one gets the impression that each story has been painstakingly and lovingly revised and reduced down until you know she can take it no further. One also finds with Corbett that the slow unraveling of her stories does not always lead to happy endings. What chance that Bonnie Prince Billy or Nick Cave might be lined up to duet on some of those darker songs!

"Tea and Sympathy is one of the best live bands to come out of Minneapolis,"beautifully messed up and mesmerizing". – Jim Meyer, Star Tribune
