NEW YORK (Inpop/ www.inpop.com) - Aware/Columbia/Inpop artist Mat Kearney
and Word/Curb/Teleprompt Records band MuteMath will co-headline a spring tour to kick off March 31 in Dallas, Texas. The tour will hit over 50 cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, New York City, and other key college campuses.
The strong pairing of these two rising acts is already generating excitement along the tour route.
'These are two artists I never take out of my CD player,' says Bryan Myers of Creative Artists Agency, booking agent for MuteMath, 'and the buzz is swelling!'
Continues Tim Beeding of CAA, Kearney's booking agent, 'It is truly an honor and a pleasure to work with these two phenomenal artists.'
Last month Kearney inked a general-market partnership with Aware/Columbia Records, home to multi-platinum singer/songwriter John Mayer, Grammy-winning rock band Train, and alternative pop outfit Five for Fighting, among others. Kearney's music features a blend of acoustic guitar, thoughtful lyrics and driving rhythms. His Aware/Columbia/Inpop project is slated for release this fall.
Kearney released his Inpop Records debut, Bullet, last October to critical acclaim. 'Undeniable,' the first single from Bullet, broke the record for the largest number of out-of-the-box adds for a radio single on Radio and Records' Christian CHR chart. He recently returned from a winter tour run with alternative-rock outfit Graham Colton Band and select dates with Cary Pierce and Glen Phillips.
Comprised of Paul Meany (vocals, Rhodes, bass), Darren King (drums, samples, programming), and Greg Hill (guitars), MuteMath melds organic instruments with electronic elements for a cutting edge, distinctive sound. MuteMath's debut EP, Reset, released last September and combines elements of jazz, rock, and electronica. The band's full-length project is slated for release this summer.
'I've been in seclusion in the studio for the last few months, so I'm ready to get out and play some of new songs and see old friends on the road,' says Kearney. 'MuteMath is a very talented band, and they put on a great show. I'm more than excited about this tour,' Kearney says.
