Fragile from Wisconsin who has developed a multi-textured rock work, This Land Will Be Civilized with Producer, David Bottrill (Tool, Staind, and Muse) and Mastering icon, Bob Ludwig will be performing in Nashville for the first time on April 7th at The Rutledge along with 714, featuring Todd Poole from Saliva and Nashville Rockers, Nexus Point.
Brothers Darrell and Chauncey Marrier started writing together growing up in Withee, Wisconsin with the common influences of classic bands such as The Beatles, The Band, Led Zeppelin as well as Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones wanting to develop lyrical content as well as dynamics that would stand the test of time.
This Land Will Be Civilized featuring “Down To The River” is interlaced with powerful rock and string section breaks that were recorded remotely at St. Hedwig’s, a 100 year old historic abandoned country church, which is now being restored into a world class recording studio with the help of world renowned studio designer, Michael Cronin, known for his studio design at Ocean Way, Blackbird in Nashville as well as the personal studios for Mutt Lange, Clint Black, Big and Rich and Ryan Tedder of One Republic.
Fragile has brought their music to some of the greatest venues in Wisconsin and Minneapolis such as First Avenue, Varsity Theater, The Turf Club, The Fine Line, The Rave as well as the Grand Theater in Wausau, Wisconsin and are looking forward to their first Nashville show.
Fragile is not only committed as a band but as people realizing their vision of This Land Will Be Civilized with the Hands Foundation, established by brothers Darrell and Chauncey Marrier which not only helped Hurricane ravaged Mississippi and Florida but has had annual building initiatives in Monterrey, Mexico to help people who are otherwise living in shelters made of cardboard, pallets, tin or any other utilized debris.
With the addition of the studio being completed at St. Hedwig’s Church, Fragile is committed to future songwriting as well as balancing life with giving back to the community.
Along with Fragile, 714 from Memphis featuring Todd Poole of Saliva fame and local heroes Nexus Point will be rocking The Rutledge. The doors open at 8pm ($5 cover) with the first set starting at 8:30 pm. 714 and Nexus Point will both be featured Sunday Night April 3rd on Local Buzz with Tony Stone on 102.9 The Buzz.
Support Rock in Nashville. This will be a great night not to be missed.
