Mark Charles Heidinger, aka Vandaveer quietly released his third official LP, Dig Down Deep, in April this year. It was only last week that it fell into my hands and I couldn’t be more excited.
His first album, Grace & Speed, found a place in my heart with brooding singer-songwriter tunes—the darkness of Nick Cave paired with those Dylan-esque vocals brought haunted characters to life with a mere guitar at hand.
For this latest album he pairs with longtime singing partner, alt spring peach Rose Guerin, to deliver a lighter heartland-inspired Americana sound.
Enjoy the video for title track, “Dig Down Deep.”
This album is truly his best production to date, with a richness of instrumentation to complement the tales of this natural troubadour. Producer Duane Lundy offers delicate atmospheres and a raw simplicity that draws us in, as if we’re in the studio with them. Personally, it just makes me want to grab a tambourine and join in.
You can catch Vandaveer at the Bootleg this upcoming week, Thursday June 30th. I’ll be there with bells on.

I recently wrote an article for The Next Family called, “Family-Friendly Films That Feature Adoption and Foster Care,” that shared wonderful family films with adoption or foster care story lines. My reasoning behind doing so was because every family deserves a chance to see similar families like theirs represented in various forms of entertainment.
The same can be said of other...
