Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash will release This Path Tonight, a new studio album of original material on 15th April 2016. A collection of 10 original songs, this is Nash‘s first solo record of new music in fourteen years. The album will be released on CD, Digital and Vinyl thru Nash’s own Blue Castle label, distributed thru ADA worldwide.
Produced by Shane Fontayne, Nash’s This Path Tonight is an album of reflection and transition by a performer whose career (both as a solo artist and with The Hollies, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young) has spanned more than five decades and counting.
Describing the creative process, Graham enthused, “What a pleasure it was recording this album! Shane and I had written 20 songs in a month and recorded them in eight days. The music has a different feel to my earlier albums, although I hear echoes of each one. This journey of mine was one of self-discovery, of intense creation, of absolute passion.”
In support of the new studio album, Graham Nash has announced the first string of dates on his 2016 This Path Tonight Tour. Along with guitarist and producer Shane Fontayne, Nash will perform a series of dates across the US, UK and Europe in 2016.
Describing the live experience, Nash asserts, “When you strip a song down to its very essence, you either have a song worth singing… or you don’t. Playing music with Shane Fontayne is and always will be very satisfying. He has an innate sense of ‘performance’ and of arrangement. He never loses sight of the fact that the song must ‘come alive’, must have a reason for being sung in the first place. We want to look in the eyes of our audience, we want to know that we are connecting on a very real level. What a pleasure this tour will be for me.”
Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and Officer of the Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.)
