P IS FOR PANDA ANNOUNCE SIGNING OF LAURIS VIDAL.
July 19, 2010
Atlanta, GA - P IS FOR PANDA is proud to announce the signing of Evinston, FL artist LAURIS VIDAL.
A new studio track by LAURIS VIDAL, “FREED”, is available for FREE starting today over at ABSOLUTEPUNK.NET as part of an exclusive seven track P IS FOR PANDA SUMMER SAMPLER.

Renowned for his unconventional self-made instruments (which include a cigar box ukulele, an electric guitar, a tenor banjo, lap steels, and a lap steel bass – all of which are made out of 300 year old Cypress barn wood found on his family’s farm) VIDAL’S high-energy yet
infectious nature is apparent both on and off stage, and roots back to his rural Florida upbringing. Now residing full time on the road, VIDAL’S music continues to reflect the unique, deep, swampy, sunshine roots of his heritage. Having spent the past few years playing alongside acts including DELTA SPIRIT, THE AVETT BROTHERS, CHRIS WOLLARD (HOT WATER MUSIC), PALEFACE, RIGHT AWAY GREAT
CAPTAIN, and THE HONORARY TITLE, VIDAL started recording the “BETTER PART” EP in June of this year, after completing a two-month nationwide tour with TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS.

His 2007 self-released EP “Shoot Shoot Your Skeletons” and rigorous touring approach, has earned LAURIS VIDAL a loyal following and the praises of numerous critics, including Punknews.org which gave the EP 4.5 stars (out of 5) and said “Listening to Lauris Vidal… is like giving Tom Waits a hug if you were to see him at a Paul Simon concert. Vidal (is an) eclectic blend of indie rock, roots blues and hobo-style swamp jam.”

LAURIS VIDAL is currently wrapping up production with producer JOSH ROHE on his new EP, “BETTER PART”, which is scheduled for a SEPTEMBER 21ST 2010 release. For more information on LAURIS VIDAL:
