Support Announced for Euro/UK Tour

Starting in Paris on June 15 and going through the German dates (ex. the Netherlands), support for the upcoming tour will be Sam Palladio. If his name rings a bell, that's because he plays singer/songwriter "Gunnar Scott" on the television show Nashville.

His own music is inspired by classic songwriters such as Paul Simon and James Taylor and, of course, Ron Sexsmith. Be sure to arrive in time to check him out.
