JD McPherson news

A new video for JD McPherson’s “Let The Good Times Roll” just premiered: The song is the title track from McPherson’s new album and features his longtime band—Jimmy Sutton (upright bass), Jason Smay (drums), Ray Jacildo (keys) and Doug Corcoran (saxophone, guitar, keys).
Already available is the clip for “Let The Good Times Roll”: See the unplugged version of “You Must Have Met Little Caroline?” here:
Following a sold-out European tour, McPherson and his band are in the midst of an extensive North American tour, including a series of dates supporting both Eric Church and Robert Plant on their respective tours. See below for complete details.
Let The Good Times Roll recently opened at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. In celebration of the album’s release, McPherson returned to the “Late Show with David Letterman” to perform the title track. The performance can be seen here:
Additionally, NPR’s “Weekend Edition Sunday” featured McPherson on the program. Listen to the full interview:
McPherson co-wrote the song “Bridge Builder” with Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. Of the new album, McPherson comments, “Much of the new song material was asking for a different sonic treatment. I was thinking of these big, bombastic sounds; lots of guitars, tons of percussion; plate reverb.”

This new music follows McPherson’s widely-praised 2012 debut, Signs and Signifiers. He was awarded “Best Rock/Hard Rock Album” at the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
