Avid Dancer Streams EP, CMJ Shows

Avid Dancer EP, out on Grand Jury Records now Streaming, CMJ Shows,

Avid Dancer is about to hit the road again, making his way across the country with Cold War Kids and playing a string of dates which will include a handful of very special CMJ shows. Jacob Summers, the man behind the project, will be releasing his I Want To See You Dance EP on October 21st via Grand Jury. You can hear it streaming in its entirety now at Paste Magazine, who note that the record “ranges from danceable vintage pop to hushed acoustic ballads, a range that perhaps isn’t surprising given Summer’s interesting background-before turning to a music career, Summer was a sheltered Christian teen, a world champion drumline drummer, a Marine and a citizen of Alaska.”

Next week, Avid Dancer will play two unique shows, one solo and the other with full band, giving audiences an opportunity to check out both sides of the artist, the rawness and depth of the songs stripped back and also the power of a full live band creating an incredible rock and roll show. Last week, Avid Dancer gave us new music from I Want To See You Dance, noting that the EP “contains a set of kaleidoscopic tracks that allude back to both 60s psych and 90s alt.” “All The Other Girls” can be streamed below.
