Bentley goes up on the ridge in Big Apple

Tuesday, September 7, 2010 – Dierks Bentley will take New York City "Up on the Ridge" for four nights beginning Oct. 18.

Each night will showcase a different aspect of Bentley's career in four different venues across the city. Bentley will also welcome special guests, including the Del McCoury Band, the Punch Brothers and more to his first-ever residency.

A limited number of four day passes will be available on beginning Friday, Sept 10 with single tickets available both on his web site and through each venue. Sirius/XM will also give fans across the country the opportunity to listen in as they stream the shows on both The Highway and Bluegrass Junction channels.

"This entire year has been about following my heart, musically," said Bentley. "Getting the opportunity to be in New York in the fall, playing with my heroes and my friends is really's a cool way for me to take everything we've done this year and pick it apart and really focus on each different element of the music for an entire night."

Bentley will kick off his New York City residency playing all his country hits at the Bowery Ballroom. He will spend the next evening with bluegrass band the Del McCoury Band at City Winery. Bentley toured with part of the band earlier this year. An intimate singer/songwriter night at Joe's Pub will find Bentley joined by Alexander, Jim Beavers and Jon Randall Stewart. The run will conclude in Brooklyn with acoustic virtuosos the Punch Brothers.

Tour dates are:

Oct. 18 Bowery Ballroom Country Concert

Oct. 19 City Winery Featuring the Del McCoury Band

Oct. 20 Joe's Pub Songwriter Night

Oct. 21 South Paw Featuring the Punch Brothers

CD review - Black Dierks Bentley seems intent on expanding his musical boundaries, but he may have overreached too much in eschewing where he came from. That most evident by the dominating textured beats. Producer Ross Copperman and Bentley seem hell bent on injecting odd meters and sounds, sharp detours from past efforts. Unfortunately, the atmospheric beats muddy up the vocal delivery on "Freedom," a song that stretches far too long at almost four minutes. Bentley also channels U2 with its ...
CD review - Riser Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley.
