MURRAY A. LIGHTBURN returns to the UK this April for a run of UK live dates

Montreal songwriter Murray A. Lightburn (The Dears) returns to the UK this April for a run of UK live dates, supporting the release of his new solo album Hear Me Out out February 22 on Dangerbird Records.

Out on Dangerbird Records on 22nd February new album Hear Me Out sees Lightburn take a step outward from his lengthy catalogue with The Dears, to focus on his craftsmanship and composition.

Working with famed producer Howard Bilerman (Leonard Cohen/Arcade Fire/Godspeed You! Black Emperor) to sculpt the sounds, Lightburn brought together a stellar group of musicians to bring his work to life, including jazz guitarist Steve Raegele, bassist Rémi-Jean Leblanc, drummer Jeff Luciani (The Dears), and singers Catherine McCandless (Young Galaxy) and Ariel Engle (La Force/Broken Social Scene).

“This album is about grown-up stuff,” Murray says. “Having kids, having to sustain careers and sustain relationships, finding that thing that keeps you together in the midst of other circumstances that could tear you apart. The reason why the album’s called Hear Me Out, is it’s not only about expressing yourself, but listening too. Being able to communicate in a relationship is utterly crucial if you’re gonna survive anything.”
