Ron Pope, one of the most extraordinary internet-driven music success stories of recent years, announces the first leg of US tour dates in support of his newest album Atlanta.
Bringing a sound that is rich in Americana and country influences but also informed by Pope’s love of a wide range of artists from Clapton to Arcade Fire, Atlanta will bring an even wider audience to an artist who already has millions of sales and page views to his name.
Pope will play 12 shows in the US starting on April 19 at The Middle East in Cambridge, MA. Pope just concluded his sold-out, four date European debut in support of his upcoming album, Atlanta. After another brief European tour (including stops in Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switzerland and the UK) Pope will return to the US at the end of May to tour the remainder of the country through the end of July.
Pope’s 2006 track ‘A Drop In The Ocean’ became an online phenomenon, helped by a fan’s homemade video that now has an incredible 16 million plus views, leading to download sales of more than one million. The track was featured on the smash hit TV series ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘90210.’ Pope’s music has also had repeated exposure on ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’
Atlanta is a return to Ron’s roots in every sense, including the city it was named for - and the chance to showcase new and old songs on his upcoming tour.
