Grammy Award winner John Paul Whitewill embark on a series of special solo acoustic performances this fall, beginning October 6, at The Blue Door in Oklahoma City. The tour includes stops in Fort Worth,Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. See below for the full itinerary. For tickets and more information please visit

White will debut new material on the road, in addition to performing songs from 2016’s highly acclaimed Beulah, a diverse collection of swampy southern rock, folk balladry and dark acoustic pop.


One half of the four time Grammy-winning duo The Civil Wars, White’s collaborations include contributions to recordings by Rodney Crowell, Hiss Golden Messenger, Roseanne Cash, Jason Isbell, Candi Staton, and Emmylou Harris, and production work with Lera Lynn, Lindi Ortega, Dylan LeBlanc, Penny & Sparrow, and Donnie Fritts’ Oh My Goodness, which also marked White’s debut as a producer. White also founded and runs Single Lock Recordswith Ben Tanner and Will Trapp.


Praise for Beulah:

 “A wise, entrancing and meticulous bit of Southern folk…for White, this is a
return to self. If The Civil Wars invited listeners to confuse their characters with the
singers, he is now making clear where his songs come from. It’s bracing to hear the return
of a voice many have missed in a form few have heard.”

“[Beulah contains] songs that are daringly intimate, artfully modulated,
hook-blessed and habit-forming.”

“Mr. White’s nuanced, insinuating, breathy vocals are frequently likened to those of such emotional, even fragile troubadours as Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith, and there’s sense in those comparisons, with an important distinction: In accent, musical choices and references, John Paul White is decidedly a product of the American South.”

“A solo album that recasts the Muscle Shoals resident as a fiery, folky frontman.”

“For Civil Wars fans, there’s plenty to like. White’s breathy vocals,
his literary lyrics and his acoustic pop melodies are the bones of the album. But he also draws on his rock influences on songs like ‘The Martyr,’ or his love for classic country music on ‘I’ve Been Over This Before,’ with its shimmery vibraphone and backup vocals from The Secret Sisters.”

“If Beulah is any indication, John Paul White sounds best when he’s
making music on precisely his own terms.”
