In addition, McPherson hits the road in January with stops at Portland’s Wonder Ballroom, San Francisco’s Fillmore and Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom. See below for complete tour dates.

Rolling Stone named “Let The Good Times Roll” among the top songs of 2015, calling it the “perfect mix of arrogance and respect.” Read the full write up here: http://rol.st/1N7NTa4. Also, Paste magazine listed Let The Good Times Roll as one of the best albums of 2015, praising the record as “a bomb of good old-fashioned retro rock ‘n roll.” Read the full review here: http://rol.st/1N7NTa4.

Produced by Mark Neill (The Black Keys’ Brothers, Old 97s, Los Straitjackets) along with McPherson, Let The Good Times Roll was recorded at Soil of the South Studio in Valdosta, GA. Additional recording was done with Alex Hall at HiStyle Studio in Chicago, IL and Michael Trepagnier at 3CG Studio in Tulsa, OK. Of the new album, McPherson comments, “Much of the new song material was asking for a different sonic treatment. I was thinking of these big, bombastic sounds; lots of guitars, tons of percussion; plate reverb.”

Let The Good Times Roll follows McPherson’s lauded 2012 debut, Signs and Signifiers, which KEXP described as, “…a scorching rock ‘n’ roll record that sounds like it could have been recorded in the ‘50s without seeming retro. Engineered to restore your faith in rock ‘n’ roll, it’ll have you involuntarily snapping your fingers and bobbing your head” and MOJO magazine called it, “…an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph.” Additionally, surrounding Signs and Signifiers, McPherson was selected as a Rolling Stone “Artist to Watch,” an NPR Music “Artist You Should Know” and a WXPN “Artist to Watch.” He was also awarded “Best Rock/Hard Rock Album” at the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
