Blind Pilot Hitting The Road


09/11/2009
.
(PR) Blind Pilot, kicks off a nationwide tour this October. The tour arrives on the heels of their full-length debut, "3 Rounds and a Sound" (Expunged Records), which earned the band performances on national radio (NPRıs ³Morning Edition² and ³All Songs Considered²), national television (³Last Call with Carson Daly²) and a spot on this yearıs bill for the esteemed NPR Music Showcase at SXSW in Austin, TX. The album received praise from USA Today, the Boston Globe, the New York Post and the Philadelphia Inquirer, which calls the music ³Ša rustic reverie.² Additionally, the track ³Go On, Say It² was recently selected as the Single of the Week on iTunes.

Blind Pilot just wrapped up their summer touring, supporting The Decemberists, Andrew Bird, and the acclaimed British rock band Gomez. Blind Pilot recently played sets at this yearıs Lollapalooza, Sasquatch!, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival, Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, and this weekend will be playing at the Sisters Folk Festival.

In 2007, Blind Pilotıs founding members Israel Nebeker (vocals, guitar) and Ryan Dobrowski (drums) embarked on a West Coast bicycle tour playing mostly to unfamiliar listeners at small-town venues. The venturesome duo has since come a long way from their grassroots inception. This summer, Nebeker and Dobrowski rounded out Blind Pilotıs lineup as a six-piece with fellow Oregonians Luke Ydstie (upright bass, backing vocals), Kati Claborn (banjo, dulcimer, backing vocals), Ian Krist (vibraphones) and Dave Jorgensen (keyboards, trumpet).
