JASON BOESEL CONFIRMS FIRST U.S. TOUR W/ DAWES, Daytrotter Premieres Two New Songs, Pre-Order Available

Jason Boesel has confirmed his first solo U.S. tour in support of his debut album ‘Hustler’s Son’- out January 12 on Team Love Records. Though he’s known for his trenchant drumming work with indie heavyweights Rilo Kiley and Conor Oberst, this tour finds Boesel trading in sticks for guitar and taking lead as frontman. Folk-rock group Dawes will join him onstage as his back-up band on all the dates. The tour kicks off February 5 in Boesel’s home state – California – and will take him cross-country to New York City and back, supporting the co-bill of Dawes and Cory Chisel And the Wandering Sons.

This morning, Daytrotter posted three unplugged versions of songs from ‘Hustler’s Son’ (two of which are premieres). Boesel, accompanied by Blake Mills on lead guitar, starts the set with “French Kissing,” a song he described to Daytrotter as a “discombobulated love jam,” followed by the eerie album opener “Black Waves.” Boesel finishes with a solo performance of “New World Mama,”
