Over two years in the making, “Chasing The Lightning” offers a unique, never-before-seen perspective into the life and mind of the independent working musician. Follow Tedesco through the wide open countryside, playing his way through small clubs and late-night meditations on what it means to pursue a life in music. Following the film, Tedesco will hold a short Q&A with the audience and perform an acoustic set.

Dan Tedesco
Dan Tedesco is the quintessential modern-day troubadour, narrating the American experience in song honestly and intimately, and with a big sound to boot. A solo artist, Tedesco's stage show is framed by a minimalist production that finds him belting out folk-spiced rockers from behind both acoustic and electric guitars while foot-stomping percussion rounds out many of the arrangements—this is one solo artist who won't seem out of place on a bill with rock bands. Interludes at the piano lighten the mood a little, but only a little, as the distorted Rhodes and Wurly sounds only contribute to Dan's stage presence. Overall, you can expect the twang of John Prine, the attitude of Ike Reilly, the picking of Steve Goodman, and shades of Paul Simon. Similarities aside, however, Dan Tedesco is at one extremely talented and intensely original.

Rolling through 30 states and clocking in over 200 shows in 2012, Dan Tedesco has hardly had time to breathe. A true road-warrior, Tedesco is supporting his current release, "Tracks On Fire" (3/10/11). Produced and engineered by Duane Lundy (Jim James, Ben Sollee, These United States, Vandaveer) at Shangri-la Productions in Lexington, KY, "Tracks On Fire" is a raw, stripped-down batch of songs offering a both haunting and hopeful perspective on life in 2012 America.
