Billy McLaughlin presents Church of the Lost Souls (Show #7 3/28/21) with guest Chris Koza

Billy McLaughlin presents Church of the Lost Souls — LIVE from The Parkway in Minneapolis  featuring members of SimpleGifts. Tickets available at  The live shows are every Sunday February 14 through May 2nd. The inspiration for The Church of the Lost Souls came from the audience when SimpleGifts performed as The Young and the Rest at the Parkway a few years ago. After, numerous encores on a Saturday night, Billy explained “this HAS to be the last song. I have to be at church early in the morning! — or maybe we should leave all our equipment here and all come back and play for you tomorrow! We could call it The Church of the Lost Souls or something and just play whatever music makes us happy!” The audience response was thunderous and requests for this type of show have gone unabated ever since.

Filled with songs of both joy and introspection, this listening room/living room styled show will feature all kinds of new music each week with special guest acoustic artists. When allowed by MN Covid guidelines change, reserved ticket in-person socially distanced seating will allow for a live audience in addition to our livestream.

And one more reason to come to the shows, we’re playing brand new songs from a series of new singles that I’m releasing. If you loved my The Archery of the Guitar or Exhale Blue albums, you’re going to love these news songs! Follow me at Spotify and Apple Music for new release dates. The first single is my take on the classic “Gospel Plow” (available now!). This song tells me all I need to know about survival and its message helped me through years of tough times.
