ANNOUNCES UK TOUR DATES & FESTIVALS
Texas genre-bending rock ’n’ roller Israel Nash returns to the UK this summer in support of his acclaimed 2018 album Lifted. The album was recorded at his home studio in the Texas Hill country near Austin and is an Americana-bred opus without equal – as Will Hodgkinson said in his 4 star review of the album in The Times, “Nash makes cosmic Americana his own”. Allan Jones called the album “a thing of wonder” and asked the question “who can get enough of music as good as this?” in his 9/10 review in Uncut Magazine, whilst in Q Andy Fyfe awarded the album 4 stars and described it as a “huge slab of cosmic country prog”. All this acclaim inevitably led to a nomination for Best Song of 2018 in the UK Americana Awards and a rabble-rousing performance at Hackney Empire backed by Ethan Johns and his Black Eyed Dogs.
In August 2019 Israel Nash will bring his band over from Texas to play Amsterdam’s Once In A Blue Moon Festival, followed by a run of UK dates ending up with a slot at End Of The Road Festival.
