Dedringers break up

Is there a Best New Artist curse with the AMP Awards? Less than a month after winning that recognition from Austin music pundits, Jonny Burke and Sean Faires have decided to go in different directions. All Dedringers shows on the current schedule will feature Burke and a new backup band.

Dedringers’ publicist Lorrie Lopes kept the door ctacked for a possible reconciliation. “They just want to do different things for awhile,” Lopes said. “Who knows what the future will hold.

After years of struggling, the New Braunfels band broke out big in Austin last year, garnering airplay on KGSR and moving a few thousand copies of “Sweetheart of the Neighborhood.” In recent weeks, however, the live shows have been inconsistent and there have been rumors of a rift between the two bandleaders.
