Rayland Baxter to Tour with Grace Potter and The Noctournals

Singer-songwriter Rayland Baxter will join Grace Potter and the Nocturnals on tour this fall, including a date at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on October 13.  The tour will celebrate Rayland’s acclaimed debut full-length album, feathers & fishHooks, which is out now. (available at iTunes, Amazon and indie retailers nationwide). Of the record, Interview Magazine praises, “its 12 tracks…betray the studied, well-worn maturity of a songwriter who has done his fair share of living,” while the Nashville Scene asserts, “Play your kid Mozart—maybe he’ll grow up to be a math genius. Play your kid Steve Earle and Bob Dylan’s steel-guitar melodies—maybe he’ll grow up to be Rayland Baxter.”

The new album was recorded in Nashville and was produced by Rayland along with Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Caitlin Rose) and Eric Masse (Madi Diaz, Kyle Ryan). Grammy Award-winning producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Kings of Leon) mixed the record and served as its executive producer. Additionally, the album features Rayland’s father, Bucky Baxter (Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, Ryan Adams), on guitar/steel guitar as well as background vocals from Madi Diaz, Mikky Ekko and The Bridges. Of the album, Rayland comments, “Making this record was effortless. The songs formed themselves; we started with no goals in mind other than making music that myself and everyone around was moved by. It’s an emotional record that puts into words a lot of what I, or anyone longing for change, could go through.”
