Don DiLego signs to One Little Indian + New single premiere on Folk Radio

15 Feb 2016

One Little Indian announce signing of New York-based artist-producer Don DiLego to the label, coupled with the premiere of his brand new single ‘Drive Like Pirates’ on Folk Radio. Don is currently on tour with label-mate Jesse Malin, and plans to release his full-length album ‘Magnificent Ram A’ later this year.

Don DiLego releases a new three track single ‘Drive Like Pirates’ b/w ‘Different Man’ & ‘The Pharmacist In the Aquarium’ via Velvet Elk / One Little Indian on 25th March.

The lead track is taken from forthcoming album ‘Magnificent Ram A’, recorded in Portland, OREGON with producer/engineer Gregg Williams (Blitzen Trapper, Dandy Warhols, The Decemberists), and at the wooded Pennsylvania retreat that is Velvet Elk Studios.

“‘Drive Like Pirates’ came out of a late-night session with just myself and guitarist Marwan Kanafani,” explains Don. “Our goal was to create a vintage sounding 70’s track, but with no drums. So all the rhythm on the track is us stomping and clapping into the wee hours of the morning. And it ended up sounding like a thunderous, drum track.”

“Thematically, it’s about a friendship and showing your friend the light when there seems none to be found. Drive Like Pirates, I guess, is just a metaphor for letting things go and being reckless when needed!”

Irregularly making solo records since 2001, Don’s 2012 EP Western & Atlantic, won Best Roots/Alt Country EP at the American Independent Music Awards, and those album sessions suggested the approach to the new project Don has long had in mind, a collection of click-track free analog recordings that embrace their imperfections and happy accidents.

Don has also produced recent releases from Jesse Malin (New York Before the War, Outsiders) and Hollis Brown (Loaded, 3 Shots).
