Karl Denson's Tiny Universe

Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe is back in action with an extensive tour this Winter. The run of shows—being dubbed “Running With The Diesel”—will give fans from the Southeast, Midwest and West Coast the chance to experience what is highly regarded as one of the best live bands on the planet. Karl, who now serves as the saxophonist in The Rolling Stones, is fresh off a tour with the legendary rock band that included the highest grossing concert festival of all time, Desert Trip. With KDTU, he’ll be showcasing material from his forthcoming studio album, due in early 2017, as well as previous acclaimed KDTU recordings like 'New Ammo' and ’The Bridge.' Audiences can also expect a handful of KDTU's super-charged covers by the likes of Prince, The White Stripes and Beastie Boys. Special guests on select dates will include Jimmy Herring of Widespread Panic, Austin-based and Latin-funk purveyors, Brownout. The current KDTU touring lineup is comprised of Richmond guitarist DJ Williams, Soulive drummer Alan Evans, Greyboy Allstars bassist Chris Stillwell, Crush Effects keyboardist David Veith, Seattle trumpeter Chris Littlefield and ace slide and lap steel guitarist Seth Freeman.

Special Guest Zach Deputy

On his upcoming release Another Day (Eusonia Records, 2011), Zach Deputy demonstrates his extraordinary ability to
perform and record in multiple contexts. He conveys the sensibilities of a mature singer/songwriter and demonstrates that
he is not merely a “looper”1
with crazy chops, serious pipes and colorful outfits. Another Day offers another look at Zach
Deputy and seeks to help him cross over into other audiences. Rich with ballads and mid-tempo songs, the music on this
recording is best described as soulful rhythm and blues, with flavors of Al Green, Taj Mahal and Stevie Wonder emerging
in the swells, changes and modulations of the music, in the voice and even in the lyrical content. The record will appeal to
fans of contemporary artists like Jack Johnson and Amos Lee, but the origins of the style and feel remain classic.
