Producer Carl Broemel's Reflections on Recording Line of Light

Suz and Dave are able to easily switch from being responsible parents to following their musical muses into unexpected areas. They truly are an interlocked duo in life and music, complimenting and supporting each other. I think they must get their limitless energy and stamina by simply being together, and having the family along for everything.

Maine Public Radio's Pick of the Week

The first review of Line of Light ! Thanks to Maine Public Radio for the kind words. We love Maine so much and can’t wait be back with our new album. Pre-order it here.

"David Wax Museum's new album, Line of Light, is a collection of songs that not only give us great tunes, but there's depth in them. Sometimes I hear a melody before the lyrics or the other way around. It's such a lovely thing when a song has a melody that gets into your pores and then, after a few listens, you discover the lyrics do too. Some bands have poets for frontmen and this band is one of them. Lovingly produced by Carl Broemel (guitarist for My Morning Jacket and Ray Lamontagne), it's full of variety. Songs that rock and ballads that seduce you. I'm all in for this record and it's wonderfully creative sounds." — Sara Willis

THANK YOU so much for helping us reach our Indiegogo goal for the new album and new van!  We really couldn't do this without our community of listeners/advocates/friends, so thank you for believing in us and supporting us.  It fills our hearts and fires us up to get back on the road.  We're been finalizing the album artwork and credits, and everything is coming into focus for a busy season of touring in 2019-20

February Tour Recap

What a tour! 10 shows in 10 days including a West Philly commune, a hospital room, a suburban living room, a 200-year-old church, a school, a farm, a restaurant, a hotel, a theater and a night club. We're feeling so grateful to be welcomed into these spaces.  This is what community-focused, DIY touring looks like, and it's empowering for us as artists and for the communities that bring us through to rally folks together and build connections through shared experiences.  We love when folks decide to start a concert series, to invite us into their home, or start a homegrown venue in their town.  Each of us has the power to make a difference in our community by supporting the arts.  One of our hosts, Hill, said that hosting felt like inviting joy into his life.  What a beautiful sentiment!

Our friend Pete Buttigieg

David here. One of my oldest friends Pete Buttigieg is running for president in 2020. Honestly, it's still a little surreal to see Pete in the news. We met as political nerds in Washington D.C. in the spring of 2000 when we were both high school seniors. He's an exceptional person -- thoughtful, down-to-earth, intelligent, compassionate -- and it's hopeful for our country that someone like Pete has dedicated himself to public service.

Los Lobos!

The tour with Los Lobos couldn't have gone better.  Ever since I first picked up a jarana and started playing open mics in Cambridge, people have been telling me I should open up for Los Lobos.  For years I'd just nod politely and say something like, "That's a great idea.  Thanks for the advice."  Of course, I knew that if that were ever going to happen, I was still so many steps away from sharing a bill with the seminal band digging deep into American and Mexican music.  And so, for a decade, it just remained a pipe dream.

A personal note

It's the beginning of October, and admittedly, it's been awhile since you've heard from us.  We've been busy writing and working on new music in the studio but also taking this time to focus on family and well-being.  When we release another record next year, we want to be rested and ready to hit the road with gusto.  Thanks for your patience as we hunker down for a little bit! Honestly, the last couple of months have been emotional ones, and it felt hard for me to write a typical update.

Concert in the Blind Recap

Well, the main takeaway from the Concert in the Blind tour is we are definitely going to be doing more of it.  Although in some ways the concept is still in its workshop phase, it was clear that we're onto something here.  We were so thoroughly invigorated by the experience and felt the audience right along there with us.
