Stephen Stills To Play Locally

by Press Release | Mar 18, 2007
Stephen Stills To Play Locally Stephen Stills’ consummate, innovative musicianship has established him as an eminent solo performer and as the cornerstone of the supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash. And this spring, he’s launching a rare solo tour that arrives Friday, April 20 at the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood, NJ.

Backstage at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this month, Stills made the official announcement: "I'm starting a solo tour, just after the memorial (for the late Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun) on the 17th of April. Just myself, my little quartet, little blues band, you know, and just hack around for the summer."

With the tour announcement comes news that Stills has an archival release on the way, which will feature his demos for the music from the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album in 1969 and from his self-titled solo debut in 1970.

With a musical career that spans nearly half a century, Stephen Stills can be counted among rock's most enduring and vital icons. Between his solo work and his frequent appearances with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Stills possesses a highly melodic vocal and guitar style that has endeared him to millions of folk, rock and pop fans around the world.

Stills' professional career began at 15, and eventually resulted in his decision to drop out of college and move to New York City to pursue music full-time. Following a tour of Canada with the Au Go Go singers, Stills again relocated to Los Angeles, forming Buffalo Springfield with singer/guitarist Neil Young and releasing their eponymous debut in 1967. The supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released its self-titled first album in 1969, and Stills quickly followed that with his own solo debut in 1970. The next few decades saw Stills continue to record both with CSNY and on his own, to great critical and commercial success.

Man Alive!, Stills' latest release, again finds him in fine form. Featuring cameos from old bandmates Neil Young and Graham Nash, as well as one song featuring Herbie Hancock on piano, the album runs the gamut from gentle acoustic pop to rock to blues and folk and back again.
