Ex-Civil Wars member White sets tour

Tuesday, May 3, 2016 – John Paul White, who was one-half of The Civil Wars, will embark on a road tour this summer.

Dates will include gigs in Brooklyn and Philadelphia with support from The Secret Sisters in June. The tour will feature new material White has been readying over the past year. White recently contributed "Simple Song" to Dave Cobb's new collaborative compilation album "Southern Family."

White was a member of The Civil Wars along with Joy Williams. Despite one successful major label release and a Grammy, the duo broke up for reasons that have never been specified.

White is also a founder of Florence, Ala.-based indie label Single Lock Records and Single Lock Records' live music venue 116 E. Mobile with Ben Tanner (Alabama Shakes) and Will Trapp. The label has released the debut of St. Paul And The Broken Bones, Penny & Sparrow's "Let A Lover Drown You" and Donnie Fritts' "Oh My Goodness," which marked White's debut as producer. Additional production credits include Dylan LeBlanc's 2016 release, "Cautionary Tale." White's recent recording collaborations include work with Jason Isbell, Candi Staton, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.

In fact, all four songs - Sour Times, Between the Bars, Billie Jean and Talking in Your Sleep - could easily have wound up on a full-scale release by Joy Lynn Williams and John Paul White. Including Billie Jean should come as no shock to anyone who has seen them live because this was a staple in their live gigs (although probably a surprise if you hadn't seen them before).
