Tour Dates Starting on May 9th in Saskatoon
For Immediate Release:
(Saskatoon, SK) - Getting back to his roots, Geoff Smith, from Saskatoon band Gunner & Smith, is set to head out for a solo Canadian Tour this May. The tour is in support of the independently released Gunner & Smith album 'He Once Was a Good Man' (Release Date: February 25th) and will kick off with a full band show in Saskatoon on May 9th with a string of solo tour dates to follow in Ontario, Quebec & Manitoba. For a full listing of tour dates, see below.
Gunner & Smith began as a solo project in 2010 by folk artist Geoff Smith. The band eventually evolved into a multi-member indie country rock ensemble that traverses the rocky line between post-prairies balladeering and grit-covered rockers. Initially emerging from Smith’s one-man vision, Gunner & Smith released their first EP, 'Letter of Marque', in 2011. Featuring the lithe, lonely swaying sounds of Saskatchewan folk, country and rock, Smith quickly followed up his sparse debut release with his second EP entitled 'Compromise is a Loaded Gun' in August 2012.
When it came time to record their first full length album 'He Once Was a Good Man', Gunner & Smith headed to The Avenue Recording Studio, located above Saskatoon's legendary music venue Amigo's Cantina. Joining the band in the studio were recording engineers Jordan Smith and Scott Neufeld along with The Deep Dark Woods’ Ryan Boldt at them helm in the producer’s chair. In addition to producing the album, Boldt also makes several appearances playing on the album. Upon releasing the album in February of this year, Gunner & Smith played a showcase at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, MO and then embarked on a successful Western Canadian Tour in February and March. The band also released the dark and gritty video for their song 'Towns' to coincide with the tour dates.
Don't miss out on your chance to see Geoff Smith from Gunner & Smith on his solo tour in May! Gunner & Smith (full band) will be performing in Toronto in June at the NXNE Festival & Conference. Full details, along with the most up-to-date tour schedule are available at: gunnerandsmith.com.
