Just like his song suggests, singer/songwriter Mason Jennings will be “In Your City” — soon. His 19-date headlining tour kicks off September 13 in Ventura, CA, and closes October 18 in Minneapolis, MN, Jennings’s “adopted home.” Zach Gill will open all performances beginning September 30.

The headlining tour supports the May 2008 album from Hawaii-born Jennings, “In the Ever.” The album is a departure for Jennings, who released five albums on Bar/None Records and another on Epic. “In the Ever” was handled by someone much closer to the musician: his friend, singer/songwriter Jack Johnson.

“I’ve known Jack for a long time,” Jennings said on his Web site about his decision join Johnson’s Brushfire Records. “He told me, if I ever wanted to record for his label, he’d love to have me. It seemed to make sense that this would be a good time to do it.”

Jennings learned how to play guitar as a teenager, eventually introducing his tunes with a self-titled debut in 1996. In addition to his studio albums, Jennings released two EPs, and a DVD titled “Use Your Van,” a companion to his 2004 album “Use Your Voice.”

Jennings’s tour includes several festival stops, including a September 27 performance at the three-day Austin City Limits Music Fesitval. Staged at Zilker Park, the festival also features national acts such as the Foo Fighters, Beck and The Mars Volta.
