  • Uncommon Ground (LAKEVIEW) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)


Sad Daddy is the union of four Arkansas based musicians bringing their own unique styles and backgrounds together to create beautiful music. Sad Daddy is Brian Martin on guitar, Melissa Carper on bass, Joe Sundell on banjo, and Rebecca Patek on fiddle.

Chicago-based songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Will Phalen has spent the last decade re-imagining the sound of Midwestern Folk Rock. Drinking from the fountains of twangy Americana, sixties psychedelia, ambient electronica and classic rock n roll, Will has developed a voice and a sound that is warmly familiar while still maintaining a fierce independence and a penchant for sonic innovation. In his efforts as a bandleader, solo artist, and producer he's worked on over 20 records, released four critically-acclaimed studio albums, and written hundreds of songs. His recordings have been played on radio stations worldwide, his songs have been featured in television shows, and he's preparing to release a new full length band album this winter in addition to a solo EP of recordings made during his residency at the Salem Monastery in Germany this past summer.
