HIGH SIERRA, PHILLY, NYC AND WILCO'S OWN FEST ON AGENDA
The Nels Cline Singers first planned tour dates to support their new release, Initiate (arriving April 13). These dates include the band's first ever South American tour, an appearance at the High Sierra Music Festival, a full night at New York City's (le) poisson rouge, a night in Philadelphia at Johnny Brenda's, the Singers' first ever Washington, D.C. date at The Black Cat, and finally, an appearance in August in Western Massachusetts at Mass MoCA as part of the Wilco-curated Solid Sound Festival. More tour dates, including a West Coast run will be announced at a later date.

Initiate, the Singers' fourth release and Cline's seventh as a leader for Cryptogramophone, approaches the concept of Yin and Yang with a series of firsts for both the group and its intrepid leader, slyly dubbed by JazzTimes as "The World's Most Dangerous Guitarist." Initiate, in a beautifully designed, six-panel digipak featuring Simon Norfolk's gorgeous photographs of the world's largest machine (the Large Hadron Collider at CERN) is Cline's first double album, with its second disc culled from a September 2009 performance at Cafe du Nord in San Francisco, the Singers’ first live recording. Nels Cline Singers are Nels Cline (guitar), Scott Amendola (drums, electronics) and Devin Hoff (bass). Guests on the live disc include Yuka Honda (Cibo Matto), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), John Dieterich (Deerhoof) and Satomi Matsuzaki (Deerhoof).
Nels will also make his Village Vanguard debut as a sideman with his longtime friend and musical associate violinist Jenny Scheinman [a JamBase fave along with Nels and his Singers] with her band Mischief and Mayhem July 13-18.
