  • Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn makes good in Norway

    You’ve been spending a lot of time in Oslo. How did you get associated with “Dag”? “Dag” is a dark comedy about a misanthropic couples counselor who is well-curated in impeccable music taste. And the one piece of art on his wall is a cover of “Days of Wine and Roses” by The Dream Syndicate. So it seemed like amore

    Well, that was fast. 2015 was an exciting, whirlwind blur. About 100 shows in all—two European runs of the Solo! Electric! machine (about 50 shows) and three US tours with the Baseball Project (adding up to around 30) as well as a few here and there with the Miracle 3 closer to home. And then there was the Summer Of Dag—scoring the 4th season of my favorite TV series, the Norwegian comedic saga of a misanthropic, acerbic marriage counselor. It was a new skill, mostly learned on the fly but I hope I get a chance to do it more often in the future.

    Oh, and the year ended with the one and only 2015 show by The Dream Syndicate in 2015—in Richmond, Virginia just a few weeks ago. And about 12 hours after walking off stage we went into the studio to make our first album since 1988. We're all pretty thrilled with the results. I'm not going to say too much except that it's very much in keeping with What We Were as well as What We Might Have Become with some surprises, both big and small. I hope that we get it out in the 2nd half of 2016. Stay tuned.

    Ah, 2016. Don't know if I'll hit triple figures on live shows again but I might not have forecasted that in 2015 either. I do know that I'll be down at the Todos Santos Music Festival in January for the fifth year in a row. And I'll be doing some gigs on the West Coast in February as well as another Solo! Electric! (sorry, I kinda dig those exclamation points) over in Europe in April (dates announced next month).

    And finally, big thanks to dg at Rexruff, our patron saint of the website for revamping the entire digital store at More titles and higher bit rate are available now for your listening pleasure including Solo! Electric Volume 1 and Up There: Home recordings 2000 to 2008 for only $5 Bucks each. Hoping for more treats and updates on the site as well so keep your eyes and ears peeled.

    Big big thanks to all of you, everyone who came to any of those 100 gigs, anyone who had a hand in putting them on, everyone at Yep Roc, Blue Rose, Belmont Bookings and Raji World as well as the Dag team and anyone who joined me on stage or in the studio this year. It's been one of my favorite years. Let's see what comes next.

  • Reunited Dream Syndicate to Strange Matter

    Richmond is like a second home to Steve Wynn. “I’ve always felt a real connection to the place,” says the guitarist and songwriter based in New York City’s Queens borough.Not only did Wynn’s influential ’80s band, the Dream Syndicate, perform often in area venues like Twisters and Flood Zone back in the day, he’s got a lot of friends here.more
