Collaborating as bassist with such legends as Jeff Beck, Prince, The Allman Brothers, Herbie Hancock and beyond, winning accolade after accolade from top music publications, and expanding her fanbase with dynamic live performances, Tal Wilkenfeld has been an elite presence in the music scene for over a decade – a far more extensive resume than her 30 years of age would usually suggest. Her recent and upcoming work marks an additional new chapter – playing more instruments on stage, including guitar, and performing lead vocals on original songs. Her single “Corner Painter,” released last year, was a preview of things to come: Wilkenfeld’s first album of original material with vocals, to be released in early 2018.
To support the completion and release of the album, Wilkenfeld has launched a PledgeMusic campaign (pledgemusic.com/projects/talwilkenfeld), giving fans exclusive access to a variety of different gift and rewards packages. Contributions of any amount are welcome, and fans will find interesting, exclusive items at every level. To celebrate her upcoming tour, several new items are being added to the store today, including three signed basses and two BOSS DS-14A limited-edition 40th anniversary distortion pedals. Pledgers also have access to an advanced pre-sale in which they’ll be able to purchase tickets to Wilkenfeld’s Nov. 30 show at the Troubadour. This offer is exclusive to Pledgers and can only be accessed using an exclusive password. Pre-sales begin on Wednesday, Oct. 11, at 10 a.m. and will run for 24 hours.
Additionally, Wilkenfeld has announced her 2017 West Coast Tour with support from drummer Tamir Barzilay and guitarist Owen Barry. Wilkenfeld will be sharing new material from the upcoming album, performing primarily on bass but also other instruments and other surprises.
