Thomas Dybdahl Announces North American Tour In Support Of Just-Released All These Things (“A Slinky Gem Made For Late Night Romance” – KCRW)Includes Special Guest Dates With Lera Lynn In January (Including Co-Bill At Troubadour In Los Angeles Jan 25)
Norway’s Thomas Dybdahl has announced his first U.S. tour in 3 years, a January and February run to support his just released new album ‘All These Things’ (V2). The tour includes 5 west coast dates as special guest with Lera Lynn in January, including a co-bill at The Troubadour in Los Angeles on January 25. Lera appears on Thomas’ new album and in a series of live in-the-studio videos that Thomas has been releasing since the summer. Following his dates with Lera, Thomas will headline a run from Chicago to the east coast, ending in NYC on February 7 at Joe’s Pub as part of a series of concerts curated by Judy Collins. Full itinerary is below.
Thomas’ new album has been met with raves. It received high praise from Billboard in their premiere featuring the title track and video. Key radio stations KCRW and KUT both selected singles as “Songs of the Day." All Music gave an especially spot-on comparison, declaring that "the sound exists at a crossroads where David Crosby's If I Could Only Remember My Name and Tim Buckley's underappreciated Sefronia meet."
'All These Things' is the next step in Thomas’ continued collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell) - their work together on Thomas' 2013 album earned a Grammy nomination.
