PRESS FOR NEW ALBUM IN WESTWORD DENVER!
Denver Westword has always been kind to Danielle Ate the Sandwich and even featured me on their magazine cover back in 2009! This past week I spoke to writer, Ian Gassman, who wrote this fantastic new article about my new album, ‘The Drawing Back of Curtains.’ Below are some of my favorite excerpts from the piece:
“On Tuesday, January 13, Danielle Anderson (better known as Danielle Ate the Sandwich) will release her new album, The Drawing Back of Curtains. It serves as the soundtrack to a recent documentary about Wilkinson called Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson.”
“Her story, when I first heard it, it was very tragic,” Anderson continues. “And then, when I got more involved in the project, I tried to remember that, in her paintings, there was light and joy and color, so there had to have been moments of pure bliss where, even if she wasn’t being recognized for her art, she was still able to paint and do what she loved.”
After the album drops, Anderson will plan some live events around more film festival debuts. Later this year, HBO will air the documentary, and, hopefully, more people will learn about Wilkinson. Anderson concludes that, although Wilkinson couldn’t live in this century, at least her story and her art will.“
