Nomad Stu Larsen Tours Around the World
Traveling man and fantastic musician Stu Larsen is pleasing crowds the
world over, with a tour bringing him throughout Europe and the United States for acoustic moments and intimate settings for
connecting with his fans through song.
Often called a vagabond or gypsy, Stu Larsen has lived life to
the beat of his own drummer. In 2010, he left material comforts and preconceived notions of success behind in search of a
simpler, more artistic calling. This choice has made all the difference in his music. His work and lifestyle now are an accumulation
of years of extroverted travel and artistic musical collaboration, which he's inevitably cultivated out of his love of globe-trotting
and finding others to make music with along the way. This nomadic way of life is evident in the folksy undertones of his music.
After leaving his home in Queensland, Australia when he was 24, Stu set out to travel the globe,
performing in small, intimate venues throughout Australia and New Zealand, as well as visiting and performing in Japan, Europe,
the U.K., Ireland, the U.S. and Canada. His 2008 album, "Lies Will Keep You Out" and 2009's "The Black Tree" are both releases
that add to his repertoire as a solid collaborative folk musician.
The artist's current album, "Ryeford,"
was recording with the help of long-time friends Luke Thompson and Tom Hurt. The trio rented a rural farmhouse and recorded
the album after spending a week in isolation. All the songs featured on the album were written by the artist. The songs were
based on his extensive travel experiences and the heartbreak of a long distance relationship coming to an end. Interestingly,
the trio created all the music organically, including the three-part harmonies, ukulele, guitars and banjos. Despite his heavy
touring schedule, Stu plans on releasing new material soon.
This artist is a long-time opening act for
British singer/songwriter Passenger. In 2013, Passenger admitted that the two were essentially homeless because they spent
so many days touring each year that it was impractical to rent a permanent home. Instead these musicians preferred to spend
most of their time traveling and making music. Stu has often said he lives off the graciousness of friends worldwide. He has
also performed with Mumford & Sons and Boy & Bear. He enjoys the close collaborative efforts that come from working
with other talented musicians in his genre.
Stu will continue the European leg of his tour before
moving to the US and Canada, where he's scheduled to play 20 cities. He has announced he will be returning to his homeland
shortly after his U.S. tour is complete -- he'll need to rest up for the next whirlwind tour.
can expect an intimate concert experience at any event featuring this artist. He enjoys playing smaller venues and stages
where he can remain in contact with the audience at all times. Through this direct contact with his fan base, Stu has been
able to cultivate a loyal following worldwide, one that grows through word-of-mouth and one-on-one connections. Shows are
not based on synthesized sounds, flashy lights and pyrotechnics. He comes prepared to offer fans amazing vocal harmonies coupled
with raw, acoustic guitar melodies.
