PRESS RELEASE:

Banished Music, The Endless Scroll, and Under The Radar present: STEVE GUNN (U.S.A) NEW ZEALAND SOLO TOUR

'The guitar playing, which is superb throughout, feels inextricably bound to the structure and shape of the melodies.' ★★★★ MOJO

'Hes the hipster-friendly guitar slinger of the moment, in the spirit of John Fahey or Robbie Basho, with a lovely sun-glazed lilt to his fluid fingersmithery.' ★★★★ - THE GUARDIAN

'By embracing the expanse, his music has gotten bigger, and more universal" ★★★★ - PITCHFORK

'So intimate and so mysteriously distant all at once' WASHINGTON POST

On his first musical journey to New Zealand, New York-based guitarist and songwriter Steve Gunn will play four solo shows across the country. Former guitarist in Kurt Vile's The Violators as well as collaborator with Vile, Black Twig Pickers and Mike Cooper, Gunn will be bringing the personal and evocative new album Eyes On The Lines to New Zealand this July, as well as drawing from his significant and prolific catalogue of critically acclaimed solo, duo, and ensemble recordings.
