AIR TOUR

Los Angeles-based musician AM has been invited by French electro-pop kings Air to open their first North American tour in three years. Kicking off March 13 in Miami, the jaunt will serve as the perfect launching pad for AM’s new album, Future Sons & Daughters, produced by Charles Newman (The Magnetic Fields). The run will end in AM’s hometown with a concert at the illustrious Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A. 

As a Tulsa-born, New Orleans raised artist with a flare for distilling global musical influences into his own unique and infectious pop confections, AM’s genre-blurring music, while hard to classify, goes down as smooth as a Mai Tai on a tropical island. Creative Loafing succinctly put it, “AM has an uncanny knack for crafting pop songs shaken and stirred with Philly R&B, Motown soul, ’60s rock and folk, and Brazilian rhythms that get in your head and swirl around for a spell.

Movies and television shows are where you may have first heard AM's music. With an unprecedented 54 song placements to date including HBO's “Big Love”, ABC's “Men In Trees”, and MTV's “The Hills” AM had every song placed from his debut album "Troubled Times". Released on Defend Music in 2006 "Troubled Times" was voted one of iTunes Top 20 "Best Indie Albums" and was a personal favorite of Los Angeles tastemaker and KCRW DJ Nic Harcourt.

In 2007 the Tulsa born, New Orleans raised and current Silverlake resident released his sophomore album "Soul Variations" to more critical acclaim. Fusing melodic, airy pop and folk-rock "Soul Variations" drew on everything from Katrina's aftermath to the trials and tribulations of all relationships, whether personal or political. From the spacious, analog nature of the production to the songs themselves "Soul Variations" has been said to feel right at home alongside John Lennon's "Double Fantasy" and Wilco's "Sky Blue Sky".

Voted “Best Singer/Songwriter of the Year" at the LA Weekly Music Awards AM recently finished up a 45 city US tour in support of "Soul Variations" and will continue to promote the release in 2008 both in the US and Europe with a showcase at SXSW, select dates on the Hotel Cafe Tour, and UK/Germany dates. AM also recently scored his first film "Man Maid" along with composer Tom Hiel (Swimming with Sharks, The Practice) and has just written and produced a new duets project entitled "Side by Side - Duets EP Vol. 1" which was mixed by Charles Newman (Magnetic Fields).
