"With a sharp mind to match that Hag burr of a voice, Simpson not only owns the best name in current country music but comprehends the genre as a vehicle for big, unwieldy ideas about human consciousness and the nature of life."


Why See Sturgill Simpson?


Sturgill Simpson 2024 Tour: The Johnny Blue Skies Experience

The genre-defying maverick of modern country music is poised to launch a groundbreaking new chapter in his career. After a decade that saw him rise to the pinnacle of musical acclaim with his Grammy-winning work, Simpson is stepping into a fresh persona: Johnny Blue Skies. Marking this transformation, Simpson, under his new alias, is set to release his eagerly anticipated eighth studio album, "Passage Du Desir," on July 12, 2024. This album, his first as Johnny Blue Skies, is more than just a name change - it represents a bold reinvention and a new sonic landscape.

A 28-Date Odyssey Across North America

To celebrate this milestone, Simpson is launching a 28-date tour across North America. Each performance promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, blending the raw authenticity that fans have come to love with the fresh, innovative sounds of Johnny Blue Skies! With a penchant for searching, introspective lyrics that lie deeper than beers, cars and women, Sturgill isn't afraid to explore the complexities of humanity and the nature of life. His deep Country-Gentleman-voice calls to mind a golden era of Country, heck even his name calls to mind the glories of another time. Yet he has his feet firmly planted in the future and it's this pioneering spirit that makes him an intriguing artist to watch.

About the Album: "Passage Du Desir"

Recorded in the legendary studios of Clement House in Nashville and Abbey Road in London, "Passage Du Desir" promises to be a transcendent journey through sound. Co-produced by Simpson and the renowned David Ferguson, the album is a testament to his relentless pursuit of musical excellence and artistic freedom.The album's title, inspired by a bustling shopping district in Paris' 10th arrondissement, hints at the eclectic and vibrant influences that have shaped its sound. This is not just another record; it's a passage into a new era for Simpson and his music.
