Jackson Browne added September and October dates to his 2015 U.S.
tour in support of his new album, “Standing In The Breach.” The political activist and influential singer-songwriter also announced that he added special guests Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams.
“I’m thrilled to be touring with Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams,” Jackson Browne said in a statement. “We played together at Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble a few years ago, and I’ve been waiting for the chance to play with them again ever since. Larry has played in some of my all-time favorite bands, and I’m excited to hear what he brings to my songs as this tour unfolds. Teresa and I have a great vocal blend, as does she and Larry, and I’m looking forward to what happens when we introduce these longtime favorites of mine into my body of songs.” The new Jackson Brown tour features his longtime band mates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards) and Bob Glaub (bass), with the addition of acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
“This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, all of whom appear on the new CD, and whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs,” said Browne.
Multi-instrumentalist-vocalist Larry Campbell and singer-guitarist Teresa Williams are currently on tour in support of their own eponymous debut album, produced by Campbell.
Campbell and Williams’ music distills everything into a potent, infectious blend of Americana style and timeless soul, offered with a relaxed generosity that can only come from rich experience.
Jackson Browne’s new studio album, “Standing In The Breach,” is a collection of ten songs, at turns “deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life Standing In The Breach, Jackson’s new studio album, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life,” reads Browne’s press statement.
“The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz on this album – the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap.
I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour,” Brown said in a statement.
