Fast rising Nashville singer-songwriter Avi Kaplan today announces a 13-date headline tour of the UK and Europe this November, including Dublin’s Whelan’s on November 22nd. The shows will mark Avi’s first since the release of his debut solo EP ‘I’ll Get By’ by Fantasy Records on 28th February.
In line with this announcement, fans can now listen to ‘Born In California’, the next track to be revealed from the EP, another gorgeous piece of blues and gospel influenced Americana, inspired by the rolling hills of California near the Sequoia National Park, where Avi grew up.
With the exception of lead track, ‘Change on the Rise,’ (produced by Paul Moak) the ‘I’ll Get By’ EP was helmed by producer Mike Mogis, well known for his work with Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and First Aid Kit among others. On ‘I’ll Get By’, Kaplan, the former Pentatonix star, rediscovered his musical roots and delved deeper into the music he’s always loved. Exploring a range of sounds from soul to bluegrass, these songs are threaded together by the search for spiritual redemption, and cast with acoustic guitar, pedal steel, swirling organ and deep groove percussion that beautifully complement Avi’s haunting, other worldly vocal ability.
Avi Kaplan will play Whelan’s on Sunday November 22nd 2020 with tickets from €23 on sale Friday 28th February 2020 (9am)
