New England-based multi-instrumentalist Mark Erelli is a songwriter, singer, sideman, and producer--and approaches each of these roles with a belief in the transformative power of paying attention. Career highlights include a multitude of solo albums; stints accompanying Josh Ritter, Paula Cole and Anais Mitchell; and a pair of records he produced for GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lori McKenna. In 2019, he was nominated for Song of the Year at the Americana Honors and Awards at the legendary Ryman Auditorium. Erelli’s next album, Lay Your Darkness Down, finds him diving into new sonic territory, as he leans into the redemptive power of rock 'n' roll in the aftermath of a challenging new diagnosis. The album is expected fall of 2022 on Soundly Music.
