Lund sets U.S. tour
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
– Canadian singer Corb Lund is returning to the U.S. early next year for a tour in advance of releasing a new disc.
Many of the shows will be in the west.
"I feel a deep bond and shared roots with the audiences I perform for, especially out west," Lund said. "Coming from a multi-generational ranching family from Alberta, Canada, and Utah before that, I relate closely to cowboy culture and its authenticity. It's a part of the U.S. I especially enjoy touring as I feel very at home there."
Backed by his long-time honky tonk band, the Hurtin' Albertans are Kurt Ciesla, bass; Grant Siemens, guitar and Brady Valgardson, drums.
"There aren't many artists still making this kind of western music," Lund said. "Personally, I feel like I still have a real stake in it. That's why I believe that the people that admire a vintage approach really appreciate what we do. And for us, it's really gratifying to be able to perform it for them."
"It seems to have developed that way," he nods. "I didn't necessarily plan it, but it feels really good that that's how it's evolved."
Lund will release an EP of unexpected cover songs with an album of original material to follow soon after.
Lund has released nine studio albums. His seventh album, "Cabin Fever," debuted atop the Billboard Canadian charts.

Canadian singer/songwriter Corb Lund is a decade and a half into a fairly successful career with nine studio albums to his credit and a razor sharp touring band, the Hurtin' Albertans, backing him on the road that never ends.
Lund's albums have typically been musical quilts of his myriad influences, including country, folk, indie and roots rock, honky tonk, bluegrass and Western, the specific cowboy genre that evolved on the left side of North America, all of which he channels through »»»
Things That Can't Be Undone
While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Cobb's recent albums have an organic sound showcasing his natural ability to push an artist to realize their full creative potential. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
Corb Lund is a Canadian artist, whose gritty blend of country, blues, folk, jazz and more made him a surprise success on the musically conservative national country landscape. After rising to the top of the Canadian scene, Lund set his sights south of the border to the notoriously tough American roots music scene. He released his debut in 1995, while still a part of the underground punk/metal group The Smalls of Edmonton. But it wasn't until late 2009 when he released "Losin' Lately »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
