Singer/guitarist/songwriter Jonny Kaplan of JONNY KAPLAN & THE LAZY STARS is a travelling troubadour in the truest sense. Whether sailing to a far off island, playing sold-out shows in Europe with his stellar band, The Lazy Stars, riding motorcycles up and down the West coast or wandering around a developing country with his acoustic guitar in hand, it’s all part of the same journey. And it’s the journey of a true artist that is finally leading him home to his initial U.S. release, to complement his three critically acclaimed albums that have been released in Europe.
SPARKLE AND SHINE is the long-awaited fourth album from JONNY KAPLAN & THE LAZY STARS, which is due out October 8 on Reckless Grace Music. The Southern California band has created an innovative and engaging collection of American rock numbers that opens Kaplan into a new era of his musical career. The title track made its world premiere on American Songwriter magazine’s website yesterday, which can be heard here: http://bit.ly/138C9RD.
