"Ridgway's post-Wall of Voodoo output has, if anything, cemented his neo-noir rep as one of American music's greatest storytellers, the wild and wily Steinbeck of sad whiskey railroads and rusted, ramshackle American dreams." – AUSTIN CHRONICLE
Stan Ridgway’s new album “Neon Mirage”, out August 24th is arguably the most emotionally revealing, musically far-ranging album of the L.A. singer-songwriter’s accomplished career. On electric and acoustic guitar, and harmonica Ridgway will be joined with long time co-horts Pietra Wexstun on keyboards and vocals, and Rick King on guitar, bass and vocals. Step into the “NEON MIRAGE” with Stan Ridgway and friends and enjoy a thoroughly entertaining, “one of a kind” evening of music, song, story and spoken word from one of America’s greatest storytellers and songwriters.
“…probably the most compelling portrait of American social life to appear on a rock 'n' roll record since Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska." – Greil Marcus in ART FORUM “The Big Heat”
