Jonah Tolchin is taking "Thousand Mile Night" to Europe in December


The universe is full of signs if you’re open to them, and there could be no clearer omen for Jonah Tolchin than the mileage of that epic trip: he’d had made the perfect album for the perfect moment in his life. Recorded at the legendary FAME Studios (Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin), ‘Thousand Mile Night’ charts the young songwriter’s remarkable growth, both personally and artistically, as he digs deep into the roots of American music with a distinctly modern perspective, tackling everything from love and marriage to life on the road to loneliness and depression with a deft lyrical touch.

The album follows Tolchin’s acclaimed Yep Roc debut, ‘Clover Lane,’ which was recorded in Nashville with a slew of special guests including Los LobosSteve Berlin and Deer Tick’s John McCauley. NPR called Tolchin “a promising new artist who artfully occupies the gulf between old-school tradition and contemporary appropriation,” while Uncut said he “demonstrates the finesse and maturity of someone like Jason Isbell,” and MOJO praised him for “adding raw, punk brio to a folk-blues template.” Tolchin racked up more than three million plays on Spotify with tracks from the record and toured the U.S. and Europe extensively in support of it, sharing bills with artists like Chuck Prophet, Dave and Phil Alvin, Gregg Allman, Joseph Arthur, and more along the way. When he wasn’t on the road, Tolchin was busy showing off his talents behind the board as a producer, heading to Nashville’s Bomb Shelter to helm an album for Bill Scorzari and bringing bluesy soul singer Julie Rhodes to record at FAME, where he made such a powerful connection with engineer John Gifford III that he knew he had to return there for ‘Thousand Mile Night.’ Taking this new album, he's touring Europe solo in December, happy to announce most of the dates today:
