“When you have members of Son Volt (Mark Spencer) and The DB’s (Will Rigby, Gene Holder) in your band, you can expect a blistering set. That’s precisely what we got, an all-killer and zero-filler performance that had me first in the queue at the merch desk for Florence’s new album HIGHWAYS & ROCKETSHIPS.”
— Lonesome Highways
Nashville-born, Chapel Hill-based Florence Dore’s newest record, Highways and Rocketships, recorded with with Mitch Easter and Don Dixon, won Best Americana Album of the Year at Lonesome Highway Magazine. Even not counting the pandemic, the road from her first record Perfect City to Highways and Rocketships has been anything but straight. She spent a lot of time between then and now riding around on Steve Earle’s tour bus, catching up with her Dukes-drumming husband Will Rigby (also of the legendary dB’s), wrote a couple books, put on a conference at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, took a seat on the board at the Bob Dylan Institute–and had a kid. Back in 1994 the Posies covered Florence’s song “Christmas” for the Geffen release, Just Say Noel, and over the first pandemic months, when she had to suspend recording plans for Highways and Rocketships, she co-created Cover Charge, the charting compilation of NC artists to benefit Cat’s Cradle.
