La Divina Italian Cafe is fortunate to a beloved Baton Rouge band, Cumberland County on Thursday, January 2nd at 6 PM!
The band’s history is anything but short—however, it’s certainly something special. When Kristin Courville met Eric DiSanto at a songwriter event in Baton Rouge in the summer of 2016, neither realized their similarities in music, goals or dreams. But after one show together, Kristin and Eric knew they were on to something special. After self-producing and recording their debut album, Forty-Two Miles, in 2017, which featured radio cuts "Wait For Now" and "Filling Up My Soul", they set out on tour along the Gulf Coast throughout early 2018.
A name-change in June 2018 to Cumberland County gave the duo a new look and approach when it came to the business side of making music. With the release of the single, “Flying in the Jet Steam”, produced and recorded in the couple’s own studio, Cumberland County began filling their calendar with shows from Texas to Florida to Nashville to New York City. A live album was recorded in Baton Rouge at the legendary, Red Dragon Listening Room.
During the short time, Kristin and Eric have been making music together, the duo has had the good fortune of sharing the stage with the likes of Sonny Landreth, Steve Conn, Sugarcane Jane, and the Mulligan Brothers … just to name a few. Cumberland County’s live shows have also evolved over time. A mix of fun, original songs have kept audiences entertained while showcasing the duo’s vocal harmonies and songwriting. They’ve developed a sound that reflects rock, country, blues, and Americana.
Cumberland County’s performance at La Divina Italian Cafe is free to attend. To learn more about the musical duo, please visit www.cumberlandcountymusic.com.
