The folk singer will tour in support of ‘No Mans Land’, his forthcoming album that features an all-female cast of musicians and focuses on the lives of female historical figures.
"The record is, first and foremost, a piece of story-telling – a history record, if you will, a pretty traditional folk approach. I didn’t actually set out to write exclusively about women. In the beginning I was just toying with various stories that felt interesting to tell (and I was keen, after my recent records, to write about something other than my own life and feelings for a while). Now, clearly, there is an implicit politics in the fact that, in telling lesser known stories, I’ve ended up singing about women, and I’ll stand behind that, for what it’s worth. But my initial interest was in sharing some stories that I didn’t know before, and that I suspect most people didn’t."
Frank Turner: No Man’s Land includes two sets: Frank Turner solo and then unplugged with The Sleeping Souls.
It’s no wonder Kayleigh Goldsworthy’s latest release is titled "All These Miles." The Syracuse, NY native has traveled from her home upstate to New York City, Southern California, and Nashville before finally planting roots in Philadelphia, and her sound and songwriting are as vivid and poignant as if you were sitting shotgun next to her while she drives to wherever she’s going next.
A founding member of Syracuse 6 piece The Scarlet Ending, the band regularly played for deployed troops on USO tours, and shortly after their indefinite hiatus she found herself alongside Chuck Ragan at his Revival Tour, embarking on a solo career that had her sharing the stage with Against Me, The Menzingers, The Front Bottoms, and many others. Her 2013 debut solo effort, “Burrower,” garnered great praise, and she joined up with Harvest’s pop outfit Young and Sick while they toured alongside Foster the People and Chance the Rapper, making festival rounds at Coachella, Austin City Limits, and more.
In 2016 she moved to Nashville, TN to focus on songwriting and session playing, but not long after she received a call from Dave Hause and began touring as a member of his band The Mermaid. During this time she began honing her craft once again, and finally got back into the studio with Saves the Day’s Arun Bali to record.
“All These Miles,” released independently on November 20, 2018, tells the story of where she’s been not only lyrically, but sonically. Not quite folk or country, not quite rock, but all pop - wrapped around the songwriting and thoughtfulness we’d expect from someone who’s lived it all.
Goldsworthy toured on All These Miles opening and playing auxiliary for Bayside on their full US acoustic tour in the Fall of 2018 through the winter of 2019, and concluded the run with a headline set at Philadelphia's legendary World Cafe Live.
Since All These Miles was released, she has announced shows as a member of Kevin Devine's Irish outfit "Kenny O'Brien and the O'Douls," tour dates supporting and playing with Dave Hause and The Mermaid, Brian Fallon, and as a member of Frank Iero's new band The Future Violents.
