Mat Kearney is back on the road as the main support for Train this summer, following almost a year of non-stop touring in support of his latest full-length Young Love – out now on Aware/Universal Republic. The tour kicks off July 26th inCharlotte, NC and includes stops at New York’s Central Park Summerstage on August 27th and 28th and LA’s Nokia Live on September 29th before wrapping in Phoenix on September 30th.

Mat’s soulful hip-hop infused pop propelled him to #4 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Top Digital Albums Chart, and #1 on the iTunes Overall Albums Chart where he remained for a week straight upon the release of Young Love last August.  Since then, Mat has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live and has recently been featured music on Awake, The Biggest Loser and Ready For Love.

This month, the label will take Mat’s third single from Young Love, “Sooner or Later” to commercial radio.  The song was previously featured in Google’s Zeitgeist 2011 Year End Wrap up video and served as the soundtrack for the year’s greatest moments.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
