Credential Recordings break-out artist Seabird wraps its summer tour stint with Jars of Clay to join new Atlantic Records band Meese and Universal Motown group Barcelona on the road through late August. Seabird will also return to the studio this fall for its highly-
anticipated sophomore release, in stores December 2009.
Kicking off Monday, July 27, at Nashville’s Exit In, Seabird will open for
Denver-based band Meese, who released its full-length debut, Broadcast, this
summer and piano pop-rock group Barcelona, whose music was most recently
featured on the season finale promos for ABC’s award-winning medical drama
“Grey's Anatomy.” The tour will visit major markets including Chicago,
Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Francisco. An up-to-date tour
itinerary is available at http://www.meesemusic.com/tour/.
Also in the works for Seabird is a follow up to its 2008 label debut, ‘Til We
See The Shore. The yet-to-be-titled sophomore album features top-notch
production by Paul Moak (Mat Kearney, Sixpence None The Richer) and Matt Hales
from Aqualung and is slated to release in December. The project’s first single
will be serviced to radio this fall, while Seabird will debut music from its
forthcoming record on a 30+-city tour with David Crowder Band beginning Oct.
1, 2009 in San Antonio. Follow Seabird’s tour and studio blog at
“I've never been as excited to be back in the studio as I am right now, says
Seabird frontman Aaron Morgan. “To be honest, I was a little worried that we
wouldn't find songs that were as exciting as our debut album. I now believe
with everything in me that this record is a natural progression to a more
moving experience than anything we've recorded to date.”
Consisting of brothers Aaron (vocals/keys) and Ryan (guitar) Morgan as well as
Preston Lane (drums), the Cincinnati-based band initially formed in 2004 when
entering a local “battle of the bands” competition. Released June 24,
2008,‘Til We See The Shore, a collaborative effort with producers Jacquire
King (Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, Tom Waits, Switchfoot) and Allen Salmon
(Mute Math, This Beautiful Republic), is an attempt to meet its fans where
they are, to craft an album that “share[s] the emotions, victories, and
defeats we all experience as normal, everyday people,” says Aaron.
Music from ‘Til We See The Shore has received phenomenal national publicity,
featured on episodes of “Numb3rs,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and promos for ABC’s 12-
time Emmy-nominated series, “Pushing Daisies.” The band was also recently
recognized by its hometown as “Artist of the Year” at the Cincinnati
Entertainment Awards. For more information on Seabird, visit:
