Texan gentlemen Josh T. Pearson has been recording music for over two decades, and has been writing songs for even longer. Though he may not possess the extensive discography this would suggest, the quality of his work more than makes up for a lack of quantity. Latest record ‘The Straight Hits!‘ is only his third album to speak of, and only his second solo affair; a follow up to 2011’s ‘Last Of The Country Gentlemen’, and shows a departure from his previous take on dark folk rock. Out supporting the new record, his latest tour will see him drop into Gorilla on Sunday 20th May.
With briefly-active and critically acclaimed indie rock outfit Lift To Experience, Pearson found fans with 2001 double album, and cult favourite ‘The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads‘. Following their break-up, Pearson retreated to Tehuacana, Texas, resurfacing years later with his solo debut, an “agonizing, powerfully confessional account of the collapse of his marriage”. With new album in tow, his appearance at Gorilla will be supported by Heartless Bastards frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom. Don’t miss out!
Josh T. Pearson performs at Gorilla on Sunday 20th May 2018. Tickets are available here.
