LeE HARVeY OSMOND National Tour

Hello to all of our friends that follow this list. One of our Blackie and The Rodeo Kings brothers  Tom Wilson  is embarking  on a Canadian tour for his band LeE HARVeY OsMOND. Here are the details:

Tom Wilson led project to perform songs from Polaris Music Prize Listed new album in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario this fall. All tour dates are listed below. 
Watch Folk Sinner tracks Honey Runnin’Deep WaterBig Chief & Love Everyone on the Shadow And Light Song Series

The SHADOW AND LIGHT SONG SERIES began so I could document songs as they were being written. I'm mystified and in awe of the creative process and the energy that surrounds 'the moment'. I've always believed that the purest most honest performance of a song occurs  immediately after it's written and gets taken out for its first joyride. Here's THE SHADOW AND LIGHT SONG SERIES. I live to love honestly. It's a full time job.

Since releasing The Folk Sinner on Latent Recordings earlier this year, LeE HARVeY OsMOND’s sophomore album has widespread critical acclaim, hitting  # 1 on the national !earshot radio chart and being long listed for The Polaris Music Prize. Produced by Michael Timmins, The Folk Sinner is the follow up to LeE HARVeY OsMOND’s Polaris Music Prize long listed debut, A Quiet Evil. Special guests include Margo Timmins, Hawksley Workman, Colin Linden, Oh Susanna, Andy Maize, Colin Cripps and Paul Reddick.
