Next week Chicago’s Briar Rabbit is taking his talents out of town for a two-week tour of the midwest. He’ll be playing some old songs, as well as the new material he’s been working on for his follow-up to 2012’s The Great Routine. He’ll be hitting most of the major cities, as well as a couple less-familiar cities like Newporty, Kentucky and Clive, Iowa (where soon-to-be-forgotten superstar Carly Rae Jepsen is playing a 350-seat venue 4/4). If you live in any of the areas listed below, do go check him out. He’s a talented guy.
I got the opportunity to spend some time with him while he was recording a Hasty Revelations session for me at Handwritten Recording. Couldn’t be nicer if he tried. He’s also crazy-talented, graduated from Berklee College Of Music, and seems to be very focused on reaching the goals he’s set for himself. If you like Ben Folds, then you’ll have something in common with Briar Rabbit already. You can hear Folds’ influence all over this track from Briar Rabbit’s recent EP:
You can check out the rest of his music on Bandcamp or Spotify
