Award-winning Americana/folk duo Misner & Smith — Davis residents Sam Misner and Megan Smith — will play a special CD release show at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at The Palms Playhouse, 13 Main St. in Winters.

Misner & Smith have been winning over fans with top-notch songwriting, musicianship and extraordinary vocal harmonies for years. They spent last year touring the United States and England and just released their fourth album, “Seven Hour Storm” on Oct. 15.

“We started on the album over a year ago, raising money online through Indigogo,” Smith said, in a call from Portland, where the duo was giving a concert promoting the new album. “Then we went into the studio (in the Fremont area in the East Bay) in January, and we were in the studio for about 22 days (spread over three calendar months). We took our time. And we came out with this great recording, which we are both really proud of.”

Davis photographer Rik Keller and Davis graphic artist Kyle Monhollen (who runs the business 2407 graphics) were involved with the album’s artwork — Keller posed Misner and Smith in the American River, with their feet in water, under a cloudy, threatening sky for one of the pictures.

Misner and Smith will go as far north as Seattle, then work their way back south, stopping in Oregon towns like Sisters, Cottage Grove and Ashland, returning home in time for the Nov. 1 gig at The Palms. Then they’re off to Colorado.

Smith graduated from Davis High a number of years ago, and the duo is based in Davis these days — “it’s where we have our garden, and keep our stuff,” said Smith. “We’re so glad to be there (when we aren’t touring).” Smith is also wearing her hair longer than in the past, “and as a result, I’ve discovered I have curly hair. I’m embracing it,” she said.

Misner and Smith have posted a six-minute video about the recording of “Seven Hour Storm” that can be viewed online at:

Tickets are $20 and available at Armadillo Music in Davis, Watermelon Music in Woodland and Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters. For more information, call 530-795-1825 or visit www.palmsplayhouse.com.
