Fans of the original lineup of Gypsy Tailwind - the dual fronting of Dan Connor and Anna Lombard, with Chris Dow, Colin Winsor, Tyler Stanley, and Max Cantlin, should definitely get to the New Hampshire Brew Fest on Saturday in Portsmouth - it'll be the last show with that lineup, as Lombard reports she's taking an indefinite break from the band.
She says she's going to do "some musical soul-searching" and work on getting a solo album (possibly an EP) out sometime in the next few months.
GT manager Derek Lombardi says the band is "very alive and well," and is even talking with Northampton star Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers about playing some shows together. As for what he calls "monster shoes to fill" with Lombard on hiatus, he says the band will rehearse in the next few weeks with singers Sara Hallie Richardson and Amanda Gervasi to see how those go.
Here's what we wrote about The Halo Sessions, GT's debut, and about Grace, and a GT live show (two of which have been for Portland Phoenix events). And here's Sam's review of Sara Hallie Richardson's disc, from earlier this year, too.
