COLTER WALL’S “KATE MCCANNON” MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES AT NOISEY

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW

EXTENSIVE FALL TOUR CONFIRMED

“COLTER SINGS AND WRITES SONGS IN WAYS SEEMINGLY LOST IN TIME. THERE IS AN AGELESSNESS ABOUT HIM SO UNUSUAL IN SOMEONE SO YOUNG.” —RICK RUBIN

“COLTER WALL IS BAR-NONE THE BEST YOUNG SINGER SONGWRITER I’VE SEEN IN TWENTY YEARS.” —STEVE EARLE

The official music video for Colter Wall’s song “Kate McCannon” recently premiered at Vice’s Noisey. Watch HERE.

The song is from Wall’s self-titled debut album, which entered the Billboard charts at #2 on “Top New Artist Albums” as well as #6 on the “Americana/Folk Albums” chart, #11 on the “Independent Current Albums” chart and #14 on the “Current Country Albums” chart.

Out now on Young Mary’s Record Co. via Thirty Tigers (available here), Colter Wall is receiving great critical acclaim…

“If Wall is the future of country music, I want that future now.” —Noisey

“Producer Dave Cobb shows his mastery by mostly staying out of the path of this talented freight train—one helluva debut.  — Rolling Stone

“…showcase the 21-year-old Wall as a disciple of songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan.” —Rolling Stone

“…with his deep, husky voice and world-weary lyrics, may sound like a grizzled songwriting veteran, but the buzzed about new artist is actually only 21.” —American Songwriter

“All this helps makes Wall, who exudes an ancient, wise humanity, an up-and-coming Americana face worth watching.” American Songwriter

“Country music has a long history of murderous story-songs—just peep the back catalogs of Nashville’s holy trinity of Waylon, Willie, and Johnny—and newcomer Colter Wall aims to join their ranks with his slow-rolling ‘Kate McCannon.’” Entertainment Weekly

“Wall establishes his voice from the start, with the voice of a weary old folk singer mixed with the swagger of the legends of outlaw country such as Waylon Jennings.” No Depression

In support of the album, Wall will tour throughout 2017, including upcoming shows at L.A.’s Hotel Café, Washington, D.C.’s Songbyrd and New York’s Rough Trade and Mercury Lounge. See below for details.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the 11-track album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. In addition to Wall on vocals and acoustic guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Chris Powell (Brent Cobb, Jamey Johnson) on drums, Robbie Turner (Waylon Jennings, Chris Stapleton) on pedal steel and Mike Webb (Southern Family) on piano.

Of the album, Wall comments, “I certainly feel like this record is far more mature than the EP in the content of the songs, stories and general sound. This record is a little more personal and most all the stories are true tales of my life.” He continues, “Dave’s a remarkable producer and equally impressive as a musician. Having both Dave the producer and Dave the player on this record felt like winning the lottery. I feel that way about everyone who played on this record. Kind of surreal really.”

A native of Swift Current, Saskatchewan Canada, Wall’s sound is comprised of resonate and raw baritone vocals, folk and bluegrass style guitar and banjo picking, steady kick-drum stomping, and visually provoking, story telling lyrics. Since debuting in 2015 with the release of his EP, Imaginary Appalachia, Wall has received overwhelming acclaim—Steve Earle declares, “Colter Wall is bar-none the best young singer-songwriter I’ve seen in twenty years,” while Rick Rubin, who recently signed Wall to his American Songs publishing company, proclaims, “Colter sings and writes songs in ways seemingly lost in time. There is an agelessness about him so unusual in someone so young.”

Additionally, Rolling Stone selected him as one of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” praising, “Sounds Like: The rough-hewn rumblings of a 21 year-old Canadian millennial armed with the weathered voice, writing chops and bushy facial hair of his 1970s country favorites.” Moreover, Wall’s song, “Sleeping On The Backtop,” was recently featured on the soundtrack of the Oscar-nominated film, “Hell or High Water.” The track has gone on to garner over one million streams on Spotify.
