Valley Maker Announces North American Tour Dates

Valley Maker (Austin Crane) is excited to announce North American tour dates in support of his recent studio album, When the Day Leaves (Frenchkiss Records). The first leg kicks off on August 12 in Columbia, SC and concludes in Nashville, TN on September 1. The tour picks back up in Ft. Collins, CO on October 14 and ends on December 16 in Greenville, SC. Valley Maker is also playing a one-off show in Charleston, SC on July 10 at the Charleston Music Hall.

Today Crane also shares a clip of “Mockingbird” – a single off When the Day Leaves. He recorded the song on his porch in Columbia, SC.

The pandemic has seen us all become experts in the imbalance of uncertainty these days, newly accustomed to canceling plans and tentatively rescheduling them for some future we can only imagine. For Crane – a ruminative songwriter, riveting guitarist, and singular voice – such a sense of uncertainty has emerged as his steadfast companion these last few years, a period of profound transition. It’s prompted him to appreciate the present even as he analyzes it, to acknowledge the future’s limitless possibilities even as he recognizes its potential perils. This flux is the anchor for When the Day Leaves. Through his compelling accounting of the past and his reckoning with this moment, Crane stares down the “part of life that remains unknown.”
