BLACKBERRY SMOKE |FIND A LIGHT  OUT TODAY ALBUM FEATURES SPECIAL GUESTS ROBERT RANDOLPH, AMANDA SHIRES, THE WOOD BROTHERS

EXTENSIVE HEADLINE TOUR CONFIRMED

Blackberry Smoke’s highly anticipated new album, Find A Light, is out today. Purchase HERE.

 

Self-produced by the acclaimed 5-piece band, Find A Light is Blackberry Smoke’s sixth full-length studio album and features 13 new songs written/co-written by lead-singer and guitarist Charlie Starr.

Recent critical acclaim for Find A Light … 


“Blackberry Smoke is part of a lineage that shares a love of Petty, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Hank Williams Jr., able to ride an Americana vibe or peel off a stomping riff and tie it all together without a hint of pretense.”

“Blackberry Smoke shines through the darkness on the album's 13 cuts”


“...a self-produced set that runs a wide stylistic range from heavy rock to gentle balladry and twangy country…”


“There’s never a dull moment on Find A Light, and Blackberry Smoke has
delivered another album that wends its way deep into our flesh and bone, blistering
our souls and soothing our hearts.”


“An engaging slice of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-inspired power pop, complete with a 12-string electric riff, snarling vocals and—as always—guitars a-plenty.”


“…Blackberry Smoke have continued to push themselves to deliver music that’s diverse, exciting, and overall flavorful.”


“...Blackberry Smoke tees up their take on a traditional idea, and it still manages to be not quite like anything you’ve heard before.”

“…Find A Light is a gem of an album, full of simplistic and liberating Rock tunes about being burdened by the stressful side of life.”

In addition to Starr and band-members Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards), the album also features special guests Robert Randolph (“I’ll Keep Ramblin’”), Amanda Shires (“Let Me Down Easy”) and The Wood Brothers (“Mother Mountain”). 

Of the album, Starr comments, “The new album is a melting pot of Blackberry Smoke music with a wide range of sound and emotion. I think it’s our most inspired work yet.”

 

In celebration of the new album, the band—who have been called “country-rock’s most ferocious live band” by Rolling Stone—will tour throughout 2018 including stops at Charlotte’s The Fillmore, Boston’s House of Blues, Raleigh’s The Ritz and Rochester’s Anthology as well as a series of dates with Lynyrd Skynyrd. Tickets are on-sale now. See below for complete details. 

 

The release of Find A Light culminates a series of breakthrough years for the Atlanta-based band following the release of 2016’s acclaimed album, Like An Arrow, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country and Americana charts. Released to widespread praise, the Boston Globe declared, “…the needle can be dropped on Like an Arrowuntil its grooves become as well-worn as the classic albums that inspired this band of country-rock workhorses,” while American Songwriter asserted, “…Blackberry Smoke fills the bill for the next generation of gutsy, heartfelt and honest Southeast rocking with plenty of talent, tons of drive and no apologies.” In

August 2017, they made their debut on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

 

In addition to their work as musicians, Blackberry Smoke remains committed to charitable work and has raised nearly $200,000 benefiting children’s cancer research.
