“Coming Over Tour” is the label Hersey has given to his little jaunt across the land.  But this won’t be his first 2015 excursion upon these shores.  He performed at twice this year and held down the support slot on the Milky Chance tour this past spring.

The Vienna-born Hersey had already learned to play cello, drums and electric guitar by the time he studied jazz at a private conservatory, where he later discovered he had a talent for songwriting and producing.  He released his self-titled EP when he was 17.  His first attempt at electronic production resulted in the 2012 mixtape Twelve.

Hersey has worked with a few heavy hitters through the years, having collaborated with Kygo and Dillon Francis as well as Filous, who remixed his “Coming Over” track.  That song, along with Hersey’s “What I’ve Done” and “How Hard I Try,” have collectively gathered more than 54 million streams.

Now he has the “Coming Over Tour” on his to-do list.  Here’s the routing:

Nov. 11 – New York, N.Y., The Mercury Lounge
Nov. 13 – Toronto, Ontario, Drake Hotel / Underground
Nov. 16 – Chicago, Ill., Schubas Tavern
Nov. 18 – San Francisco, Calif., The Chapel
Nov. 19 – Hollywood, Calif., Hotel Café
