Acclaimed Nashville based singer-songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist Lera Lynn will perform live on the BBC’s ‘Later… With Jools Holland’ on May 31st, with second song airing on the show on June 3rd.
She will be joined by the The Last Shadow Puppets, Dinosaur Jr., Bonnie Raitt, NAO, Ballake Sissoko & Vincent Segal and Zucchero.
Lynn, whose new album Resistor was released on May 6th, begins her highly anticipated UK tour on May 25th in Norwich before appearing in key cities up and down the country. Following on the success of her 2 sold out shows earlier this year, there is a lot of excitement building for her London show taking place at Islington Assembly Hall on June 2nd.
Resistor, an album that finds the Nashville transplant embellishing her Americana roots with a mix of spacey, left-of-center rock and experimental pop-noire, has received glowing reviews both here and in the US.
Uncut Magazine called it a “beguiling album of minor key pleasures”, The Sun wallowed in Lera’s “superior, literate, atmospheric, country-tinged music“, whilst Rolling Stone described Lera’s voice as “a natural descendent of Hope Sandoval and Margo Timmins’ woozy wails“.
‘Drive‘ The first single from the album will be released on June 3rd.
