Colter Wall Announces Big Tour Ahead of New Album

It’s hard to find a more compelling sound in country and roots music currently than when Canadian native Colter Wall opens his mouth and the ghosts of the characters he sings about come roaring to life inside your ears and mind. The young man who sounds like he’s in his sixties—and sings songs that sound even older than that—is gearing up for the release of his second full-length record Songs of The Plains on October 12th via Thirty Tigers Records, and he’s just released a well-apportioned list of new tour dates to accompany the new album.

Along with big upcoming appearances at Pickathon August 3rd and 4th in Portland, and then at Cody Jinks’ Loud and Heavy Fest a couple of weeks later in Ft. Worth, Colter will be heading to The United Kingdom and Denmark, and then a stretch though his native Canada before hitting the United States hard and heavy throughout the fall and winter with shows in the South, Midwest, Northeast, Montana, Texas, and then back up the West Coast early next year.

Originally from the small town of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, the 23-year-old has been compelling audiences since the release of his EP Imaginary Appalachia in 2015. Since then he’s built a strong following across country, folk, and roots circuits through his gripping original songs and stellar takes on traditional tunes. His upcoming record was produced by Dave Cobb, and features performances by legendary steel guitar player Lloyd Green, Mickey Raphael of Willie Nelson fame on harmonica, and an appearance by fellow Canadian country music singer Corb Lund.
