Ben Rector: The Walking In Between Tour
September 19, 2013
8 p.m. | $20 ADV/$23 Doors | All Ages
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave Portland, OR 97202
Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter, Ben Rector, from Tulsa, Oklahoma is releasing his fourth album and is embarking on a headlining tour in 2013.
Rector is no stranger to the road; he has toured incessantly, rapidly growing a legion of fans and selling out most dates on his previous two headline tours. This rapid growth culminated in the release of Something Like This on September 13, 2011. The record was the #1 Singer Songwriter album 5 minutes after its official release, and it climbed above Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV to the #4 spot on iTunes overall album charts, bested only by Lady Antebellum’s same-day release, Coldplay, and Adele.
Following the release of Something Like This, Rector hit the road again, opening each night on NEEDTOBREATHE’s coast-to-coast “The Reckoning” tour. Rector released his third album Into The Morning in February 2010, and it quickly climbed to #5 and #10 on the iTunes Pop and Overall charts and #11 on Billboard Magazine’s Top Heatseekers chart. In a year and a half, the record went on to sell 15,000 albums, and over 60,000 singles independently. Rector’s songs have been featured on networks such as ABC, USA, Lifetime and MTV.
There’s nothing quite like a fresh start.
Tyrone Wells’ fourth full-length album, Where We Meet, ushers in a new beginning for the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter. Not only is it his first full-length release since leaving a major label, it signifies his next evolution. Embracing both sides of his sound, Wells seamlessly balances acoustic vulnerability and pop rock irresistibility over the course of eleven unforgettable anthems. Ultimately, Where We Meet is the perfect place for Wells to start anew while keeping the same ethic that has won him his loyal fan base from his early independent days.
With his first baby on the way and Where We Meet dropping this spring, he certainly has a lot to stand by. Wells concludes, “I’m doing what I love and if my art resonates with other people, I’m happy. I love it when someone tells me that my music is the soundtrack to their lives. I hope I can continue to provide that.”
Where We Meet is just the beginning…
