Civic Record Release Party

with Only Human & Nine Violet

Nina Violet 7:15 pm
Only Human 8pm
CIVIC 8:45 pm

Face Blindness, the second release from Boston based band CIVIC, is an album borne out of confusion. The album finds the band looking to explore and challenge the reality that it's easy to lose yourself in the pressures and expectations of others.

In the 9 song collection, Dana Osterling (guitar, vocals, co-producer) joins forces with Wayne Whittaker (bass, co-producer), Eric Bolton (guitar), and Harrison Seiler (drums) in a release that is new yet refreshingly familiar. With sounds reminiscent of artists such as Laura Marling, Mistki, and Potty Mouth, Face Blindness is a collage of inspiration and a response to an identity crisis. The production of Face Blindness spanned several months and multiple time zones, with the bulk of the recording split between Rhode Island and Los Angeles, California with engineer John Would (Fiona Apple, Lucinda Williams, Warren Zevon).

A refreshing collection of precise, memorable and melodic indie pop songs, Face Blindness is available on all streaming platforms beginning 11/3/17.
Nina Violet
Nina Violet
Nina Violet hails from the island of Martha’s Vineyard where she was classically trained from childhood on viola. Nina started touring with island favorites Kahoots while still in her teens. Her early twenties saw Nina collaborating, touring and recording with Willy Mason, whose hit song “Oxygen” both launched his career and enabled Nina and himself to crisscross the Atlantic and US on numerous headline tours and with Radiohead, Beth Orton and Elvis Perkins. Nina performs on and arranges for the entire family of string instruments and plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and keyboards. Her voice, melody and lyric writing have taken center stage on her albums and live shows. She appears solo and with her sister Marciana Jones. Nina’s music organically blends poetic lyrics, lush orchestration and even some punk sensibility into something truly timeless & original.
