THE WHEEL TOUR
Jack Littman to support Black Carl Fall 2013
Jack Littman will join Black Carl on the The Wheel Tour this Fall. Littman is supporting his February, 2013 release The Remedy, Vol. 1. Littman headlined his own tour of the southwest following the release of the EP, and is excited to hit the road again along with Black Carl.
Black Carl, a Phoenix-based group of over six years, defines their sound as “Desert Soul,” and has been compared to Bill Withers, the Meters and Erykah Badu. Los Angeles native Jack Littman is a prolific multi-instrumentalist writer-singer that blends synths, loops, and Kaoss Pad beats with acoustic guitar and his powerful baritone who has played with the likes of Tapes N Tapes, Avi Buffalo, Robert Francis and Busdriver.
Put these two acts together and you have the perfect storm, better known as the upcoming The Wheel Tour.
Littman’s talent agent, Helmut Perzi, president of 4Perzi, commented, “When we were initially approached by Black Carl’s management about putting together a fall tour with one of our agency artists, Jack Littman, we were extremely excited. Both of their sounds are very unique and complement each other’s presence on the stage. The opportunity for Jack to be direct support for Black Carl couldn’t have come at a better time.”
Black Carl has independently released several records including a self-titled EP Black Carl (2007), their first full-length Borrowed (2009), a series of 7” vinyl EPs titled The Chariot (2011), The Hanged Man and The Magician (2011) and (2012), and a second full-length record The Wheel (2013).
Jack’s songs cover all stages of relationships, politics, and gettin’ funky. Jack’s newest release, The Remedy, Vol. 1, was released as a download on February 26th, 2013. His previous EP, The Mixtape, garnered positive response across the blogosphere. Jack directs his own videos as well, the most recent being for the Mixtape track “Little Pretty Thing”.
