firekid Announces Tour With Brett Dennen

(Atlantic) firekid has announced plans for a major U.S. tour as special guest to Brett Dennen. The dates get underway May 10th at Wilmington, NC's Brooklyn Arts Center and then continue through New York City's Bowery Ballroom on June 13th.

The musical brainchild of Nashville-based singer/guitarist Dillon Hodges, firekid is currently wrapping up a tour with Elektra/Atlantic recording group Kaleo, which stops tonight in Los Angeles for a sold-out show at the Troubadour. A number of additional dates are scheduled through March, including appearances at Austin's South By Southwest Festival (SXSW).

Firekid (aka Dillon Hodges) proved a prodigy upon first picking up the guitar, winning the National Flat Pick Guitar Championship as a 17-year old high school senior - the second youngest person to ever win the prestigious competition. Recorded in Hodges' hometown of Muscle Shoals with producer Sam Hollander (The Fray, Train), "firekid," released last fall, was described by Paste as "an accessible sound that stays true to Hodges' country background, but… continues to push (the) boundaries."
