Mike & Leo Kottke’s ‘CLONE’ Out October 8

CLONE, the debut album from acoustic guitar legend Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon will be released in stores on October 8 on Private Music, an imprint of the RCA Victor Group.

The collection is propelled by a deft mix of spirited guitar-and-bass instrumental tracks and warm, flavorful vocal performances by Leo and Mike. Produced by the duo with Paul DuGre (X, Pontiac brothers, Down by law), the 14-track album finds Leo adding percussion parts along with guitar while, in addition to bass, Mike plays piano, electric guitar, and percussion. In a couple of weeks, we’ll be announcing a short tour with dates in major U.S. cities running from November 5 -19.

Phish Dry Goods is currently accepting pre-orders for CLONE. Those who preorder the album are eligible to win a pair of tickets to see a set by Mike and Leo at a private intimate show in New York City on October 1. We’ll be giving away 30 pairs of tickets. Please note: All winners must be over 21 years of age to get in. No purchase necessary to enter.
