Son Little Announces Fall Tour

Son Little’s anticipated new album New Magic arrives on September 15th.

The first track to be released is “Blue Magic,” a powerful modernist interpretation of Philly soul complete with chiming glockenspiel bells and old school female backing vocals. No Depression calls it “an enchanted track with the potential to be the song of the summer for fans old and new.”

Listen to “Blue Magic” by Son Little   HERE

Son Little is a unique artist who proves the axiom that sometimes the best way to move forward is to look backwards.  Artists from Muddy Waters to Thelonious Monk to Bob Dylan to the Ramones all took music that they grew up on and shape-shifted it into something modern, and even futuristic, while retaining a timeless quality.  

Each of New Magic’s tracks draw from the diaspora of American blues and soul that includes not only modern R&B, but also rock & roll and hip-hop and transforms them into a singular sound that is propelled by his mesmerizing and soulful vocals and production that artfully balances between rustic immediacy and hip hop cut-and-paste.  

Son Little first came to the public’s attention through his collaborations with The Roots and RJD2, and has since toured with artists as diverse as Mumford & Sons, and Kelis, Shakey Graves and Leon Bridges.  In addition he won a Grammy for his work producing Mavis Staples. 

Son Little will embarking on an extensive North American tour beginning this fall. All dates are listed below. Tickets go on sale this Friday June 23rd at 10 AM local time.
