Josh T. Pearson live dates!

Josh T. Pearson’s debut solo album ‘Last Of The Country Gentlemen’ – a collection of seven songs drawn from the lessons of what he describes as “a rough year”, was released this month to universal acclaim after a self imposed hiatus that stretched out over ten years. The songs themselves are personal, powerful, painful and move with their brutal honesty, offering hope from the trials he’s suffered and survived. The songs were recorded in a Berlin studio in two nights and it is without doubt the bravest album you’ll hear in 2011.

Ahead of his sold-out show at the Purcell Rooms in London tonight (give me a shout with last minute guestlist requests and i’ll see what i can do!). Josh T. Pearson will release the single, ‘Woman When I’ve Raised Hell’ on May 9 as an accompaniment to a special one off show on May 11 at Union Chapel where a string quartet will embellish his normally skeletal arrangements. To say it will be special is a serious understatement, following a recent solo show in London which The Times gave 5/5 and described as follows, “Not since Leonard Cohen has an artist emerged who can evoke such profound extremes of human emotion through the device of a simple musical performance.”

Live favourite ‘Singer to the Crowd’ is exclusive to this release.

Added to this, there will be a special Limited 250 pressing on 12” of two exclusive piano versions of ‘Sweetheart I Aint Your Christ’ & ‘Country Dumb’ for Record Store Day and Josh will also appear covering a smattering of Mute classics at the Short Circuit festival on May 14.

The man’s legendary musical output continues to grow in stature. Many will be familiar with the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience, which released one sprawling masterpiece, 2001’s ‘The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads’, before splitting up soon after. So beloved by John Peel were they that he had LTE record three sessions in five months and were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time.
