John Paul White has been keeping busy. Post Civil Wars split he founded the Florence, AL based indie label Single Lock Records and Single Lock Records’ live music venue 116 E. Mobile with Ben Tanner from Alabama Shakes and Will Trapp. The label that has released the acclaimed debut of St. Paul And The Broken Bones, Penny & Sparrow’s Let A Lover Drown You—which White produced —as well as albums by artists including Belle Adair, The Bear, and Donnie Fritts’ Oh My Goodness. White has also been collaborating with noted performers like Jason Isbell, Candi Staton, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.
Except for his recent addition of the elegantly aching ‘Simple Song’ on Dave Cobb’s ‘Southern Family’ his solo performances of his own compositions have been scarce. Well, no longer!
John Paul White will embark on a series of select performances this summer, including dates at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust, Philadelphia’s World Cafe Live, and Louisville’s Zanzabar, with support from Secret Sisters. The tour will feature new material White has been readying over the past year.
