Dates In For ‘David Crosby & Friends Sky Trails Tour’

David Crosby has a busy fall of tour dates ahead of him to go along with the release of his new solo album, Sky Trails.

The co-founder of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash has apparently been making up for lost time. After releasing Croz in 2014 – his first solo album in nearly 21 years – Crosby returned shortly thereafter with 2016’s Lighthouse. And now he has another new collection of tunes due out Sept. 29.

Crosby co-wrote four of the songs on Sky Trails with his son, multi-instrumentalist James Raymond, who plays keyboards and bass on the album and also produced it. The project includes the piano ballad “Before Tomorrow Falls On Love,” which Crosby co-wrote with Michael McDonald. Becca Stevens co-wrote the title track and also duets with Crosby on the tune. Sky Trails also feature one cover – Crosby’s take on Joni Mitchell’s tune “Amelia,” which is included on her 1976 album Hejira.

Earlier this week Crosby released the track “Sell Me a Diamond,” co-written with Raymond. Check it out below.

“Crosby’s fervid scatting as the track draws to a close brings to mind the kind of bluesy blasts he unleashed nearly half a century ago on ‘Long Time Gone.’ Now, as then, he’s a man at odds with the evil in the world, endlessly seeking artful but effective ways to respond to it,” NPR’s Jim Allen writes.

Crosby is backed on the fall tour by Raymond on keys, Mai Agan on bass, Steve DiStanislao on drums, Jeff Pevar on guitar and Michelle Willis on keys and vocals.

The road trip begins Oct. 30 at Chicago’s City Winery.

The schedule includes gigs at City Winery Boston; The Egg in Albany, N.Y.; Barns At Wolf Trap in Vienna, Va.; City Winery Atlanta; and the Capitol Theater in Clearwater, Fla.

Presales for select dates begin Aug. 7. Additional presales are scheduled Aug. 9. Tickets go on sale to the general public Aug. 11.
