Published Nov 20, 2013Up-and-coming popsmith Mutual Benefit has earned some buzz with his newly released debut album, Love's Crushing Diamond, and now the songwriter also known Jordan Lee is likely hoping that it pays off on his 2014 North American tour.
The schedule lasts for less than a month from mid-January into early February, but in that relatively brief time, he'll do a loop around North America. Kicking off in New England, he will travel to Montreal and Toronto, out the U.S. West Coast, back through the South, and all the way up to New York.
These shows will find Mutual Benefit playing as a five-piece, including Lee's sister Whitney on synth and vocals. See the itinerary below.
Love's Crushing Diamond is available digitally now. The CD will be available on December 3 and on vinyl on January 7 via Other Music Recording Co. The label will release the last 50 copies of the original vinyl pressing (on Soft Eyes) at its Manhattan store on Black Friday (November 29).
