Herman Düne & Julie Doiron - Live

Julie Doiron began her musical career in 1990, singing and playing bass for the Canadian indie rock band Eric's Trip. As the group released numerous EPs and three albums for Sub Pop, Doiron also began writing her own largely acoustic material. When Eric's Trip broke up in 1996, she released an album under the name Broken Girl on Sappy Records, her own label. Later that year, Doiron worked on her second album, Loneliest in the Morning, which came out on Sub Pop and was recorded with prominent indie rock producers and musicians like Doug Easley, Davis McCain, Giant Sand's Howie Gelb, and the Grifters' Dave Shouse. Doiron moved to Tree Records for her next release, 1999's EP Will You Still Love Me; a collaboration with Canadian indie rockers the Wooden Stars followed in early 2000. Julie Doiron and the Wooden Stars won that year's Juno -- Canada's equivalent of a Grammy Award -- for Best Independently-Released Album. Doiron moved to Jagjaguwar for 2001's Desormais and the following year's Heart and Crime; the label also reissued Will You Still Love Me? and Julie Doiron and the Wooden Stars in 2002 with some multimedia extras. In 2003, Acuarela released Julie Doiron/Okkervil River split album. 2004 saw release of Julie Doiron's latest album, Goodbye Nobody. The album was released for Jagjaguwar label.

The featured live show presents Julie accompanied by Herman Düne, the critically acclaimed Swedish folk-rockers. The English press (the NME, the Melody Maker, The Independant, etc…) has described them as 'Swedish Lo-Fi Serge Gainsbourgs' and wrote praise after praise of their first album "Turn off the light" (2000). John Peel invited them for a studio session (September 2000) and to his home for a live BBC broadcast of his Christmas party (2000). In February 2001 they released a four song CD for their European tour.

Shrimper, the notorious Californian label that produced Lou Barlow and Yo La Tengo's first recordings, has compiled some unreleased Herman Düne songs to make their second album, "They go to the woods" (April 2001). Never letting any dust collect, the Herman Dünes went back to the studio in June, 2001. The third album, "Switzerland Heritage", (which was appropriately recorded in Geneva, Switzerland), was released by Prohibited Records in October, 2001. The Whys And The Hows of Herman Düne & Cerberus Shoal followed in 2002. In 2003, "Mash Concrete Metal Mushrooms" has been released. "Not on Top" followed in 2005 and "Giant" in 2006.

Herman Düne are currently supporting the Kooks on their UK tour. Enjoy the show!
