Singer/songwriter/guitarist Keaton Simons is getting ready to launch another U.S. tour.
He mounted his first national tour in May playing dates with Will Dailey, Sister Hazel, Curtis Peoples and Tyrone Wells.
Continuing to support his debut album “Can You Hear Me” that was released June 10 on CBS Records, Simons heads out with Ernie Halter for four shows (July 23-31), then performs a string of dates in August with Curtis Peoples and Todd Carey. In between these show, Simons will be participating in An Evening of Independence. This is a benefit concert produced by Koffeehouse Productions on August 10 at Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles. Simons is also making a special in-store acoustic performance/signing appearance at Borders in Cincinnati, OH on August 31.
“Good Things Get Better,” the album’s first single, is racking up spins on radio stations nationwide and Simons is set to perform the track tonight on the “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”. “Mama’s Song” and “Unstoppable”, from the Dave Bianco (Mick Jagger, Zach De La Rocha, The Black Crowes) produced album, have already appeared on various CBS programs, including “NCIS” and “Numb3rs.” Simon’s music will be featured in future episodes of these and other shows throughout the new Fall TV season.
