In a collaboration born purely out of mutual-respect and the desire for warm weather tourin', Julian Lynch and The Luyas are pleased to announce a special June co-headline tour. For each show together, The Luyas will act as Julian's backing band, while Mr. Lynch will be sitting in with The Luyas during their set, with the bands alternating who goes last each night.
Julian Lynch has been releasing home-recorded music under his own name since 2008. He has developed a unique style across several releases in the last five years, most fully realized in his newest long-playing project, Lines. Lynch builds Lines upon musically complex and thoughtful compositions without abandoning the accessibility, nuanced timbres, and vivid instrumentation found on his first three LPs. In addition to recording and performing music, Lynch leads a parallel life as a PhD student in Anthropology and Ethnomusicology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Julian's new album, Lines, was released digitally by Underwater Peoples Records on March 26, 2013
