We are so delighted that legendary Austin singer song writer Eliza Gilksyon has agreed to record a concert exclusively for The Fallen Angels Club.

Eliza, a twice Grammy-nominated (2006/2014) singer-songwriter, is announcing her new release, 2020, due out on April 10 on the Red House/Compass label. The record is a collection of politically charged anthems designed to motivate, reflect and inspire action during what may be the most vital American election of our lifetime.

2020 is a blend of new and old, reflecting the protests and activism that have defined her generation, including her interpretation of some folk favorites by Bob Dylan, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,”and Pete Seeger’s “Where Have All the Flowers Gone.” Eliza also adapted a new song, “Beach Haven,” from a letter written by Woody Guthrie in 1952 to Fred Trump, who at the time was his landlord, regarding his segregationist renter policies. Ever the optimist, Woody pleaded to Trump to “open your doors” and “rip out the strangling red tape” that kept the apartment from embracing all races.
