Whitley to embark on national Roadside Tour and A Day On The Green   16 January 2013

 

After making his musical homecoming with Even The Stars Are A Mess, Whitley is back to do it all again; announcing an extensive tour which sees him spreading a big ole starry mess across all corners of the country.
 
Kicking off in Tasmania (the forgotten state, no more), the Roadside Tour takes in a massive 18 shows spanning this October to December. From Bendigo to Bateman’s Bay; Wollongong to Woombye, the solo tour also sees Whitley stopping by some of the country’s finest vineyards for A Day On The Green; joining Bernard Fanning, The Cruel Sea, Sarah Blasko and Bob Evans. Melbourne artist Seagull will join Whitley on the road as a special guest – a celebratory affair for him also, with the release of new album Ocean From Above imminent.
 
The Roadside Tour follows on from a highly coveted spot on this year’s sold out Splendour in the Grass festival, not to mention rave reviews of new album Even The Stars Are A Mess - a work already hailed Whitley’s finest to date.
 
"…a sadly beautiful album, unashamedly earnest – imagine Nick Drake’s Pink Moon crossed with Beck’s broken-hearted Sea Change."
- Rolling Stone ★★★★
 
“Even The Stars Are A Mess is the Melbourne songwriter’s greatest  moment… fragile, beautiful, ambient and glorious. ”
- Weekend Australian ★★★★½
 
“…a masterpiece of folk brilliance.”
- Sunday Herald Sun ★★★★
 
“...introspection at its most intimate.”
- Triple J Mag
 
"Even The Stars Are A Messis triumphant”
- Pages Digital
 
"…meticulously crafted and carefully arranged …the strongest album Greenwood has recorded as Whitley”
- Music Feeds
 
“Simple, highly evocative...emotionally possessive”
- The Music.com
 
The album sits at the end of a three-year sabbatical that saw the man behind the moniker, Lawrence Greenwood, immersed in a series of globetrotting adventures through Mexico, Cuba, London, Peru and Italy (among others). Well accustomed to thelife of a traveling troubadour, Lawrence will pack his bags once again; thistime, reigniting his love of our sunburnt country… and ‘roos.
 
Even The Stars Are A Mess joins Whitley’s acclaimed sophomore offering Go Forth, Find Mammoth and well-loved debut LP The Submarine. Following on from the blissfully pensive ‘My Heart Is Not A Machine’, Whitley’s new single ‘TV’ hits back with notably more voltage than its predecessor; painting the satirical tale of a life lived through the tube.
