Tobin Sprout announces ‘Live Horses’, an exclusive live stream on 10th June via NoonChorus and as part of Fire Films‘ ‘Baptism Of Fire’ series. For the first time, Tobin Sprout (ex-Guided By Voices) performs songs from his critically-acclaimed recent album ‘Empty Horses’.
This special set sees him perform solo on piano and acoustic guitar and he’ll also be joined by his band (Tommy Schichtel, Steve Vermillion and Gary Vermillion).
Close up and personal, Tobin’s meticulous observed study of America and Americana, is an alternative America Songbook of laments to simpler times brought direct to your front room for an intimate one-off performance. Part Townes Van Zandt, part John Prine, part Robbie Robertson at his retrospective best. Tobin Sprout’s ‘Live Horses’ will be available on demand for seven days following the live stream gig.

“Gentle, unassuming melancholia with McCartney-esque piano led tear-jerkers.. still a great pop song writer” Uncut
“A triumph” ★★★★½ Louder Than War
