New York-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jordan Lee, aka Mutual Benefit has today announced details of his upcoming UK and European tour dates for March 2024. Tickets for the tour, which includes dates in London, Manchester and Dublin are on sale from Friday 1st December. Full tour dates are listed below.
Speaking about the upcoming tour dates, Lee says:
‘I’m thrilled to announce our UK and European tour dates for March next year, It’s been almost five years since the last tour abroad. I am looking forward to sharing the adapted live arrangements of Growing at the Edges’.
For his new album Growing at the Edges, Lee brought in two crucial collaborators: his first-ever co-producer in multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Birnbaum, of Brooklyn’s Wilder Maker, and violinist Concetta Abbate, who contributed string arrangements. The interplay of Birnbaum’s jazz and country riffs and Abbate’s chamber folk arrangements leant Growing at the Edges a live ensemble feel. With their vast musical vocabularies, Lee’s abstract ideas were made concrete. Other collaborators include guitarist Jonnie Baker (Florist), vocalist Eva Goodman (Nighttime), standup bassist Nick Jost (Wilder Maker, Baroness), and drummer Sean Mullins (Wilder Maker, Sam Evian). Written over the span of five years, the album took root with two artist residencies completed in 2019: one at a former watchtower in Northern Ireland where Lee was commissioned to compose a soundtrack, and another in Gainesville, Florida, both allowing him time and space to experiment, to spontaneously explore, and to live inside his emergent songs.
Speaking about the new album, Lee adds:
‘The songs on Growing at the Edges gave me a chance to explore inner and outer worlds and observe the important signs of growth on the fringes after a disaster, to find hope through small collaborations instead of feeling overwhelmed into inaction’.
Lee began writing Growing at the Edges at a creative crossroads, but it led to his most intentional, adventurous, and realised album, a world to enter. In writing, Lee was thinking about areas of life that capitalism deems to be valueless, how the reality of relentless extraction creates what are perceived to be wastelands.
Mutual Benefit’s new album Growing at the Edges is out now via Transgressive and he will be touring the UK and Europe in March 2024.
