Ottmar Liebert Announces MORE 2017 North American Tour Dates

Flamenco-influenced guitarist Ottmar Liebert added several more dates to his North American tour.  His touring lineup includes Jon Gagan on bass and Chris Steele on drums/percussion. A list of dates can be found below.

In 2016, Ottmar released Slow, a collection of songs that featured the guitarist minus his usual band setting.  Regarding the album’s inspiration Liebert commented, “Sometime in 2015 I decided to record by myself, without the band, and that I wanted to create slow music.  Love whispers while hate screams, and I decided to whisper so softly. I wanted to raise my guitar against the sound of billions of smartphones beeping with the latest news, mentions, likes, and comments, keeping us in a state of constant alarm. I made all of the music on this album with one guitar and one microphone.”

I tried to find a track from Slow to embed, but had no luck. Instead I embedded one of my personal favorites, a song called ‘Streelight’ from his 2008 album, The Scent of Light. The song also appears on his 2009 compilation album, Spanish Sun.

Ottmar Liebert is one of the few instrumental guitarists to achieve gold and platinum sales in the US. His debut album Nouveau Flamenco sold nearly 1.5 million in the US alone.
