Following his sold-out solo tour earlier this year and a round of arena dates with Eagles, Timothy B. Schmit will launch his fall solo tour in Las Vegas o Friday, November 24. For the trek, Schmit and his band will perform songs spanning his entire four-decade long career.
Joining Schmit on tour as opener in Los Angeles (Dec. 3, Saban Theater) and Denver (Dec. 14, Soiled Dove) is fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and former Poco bandmate Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield, Poco). Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
Schmit recorded the 12-track Leap Of Faith in his Los Angeles studio with co-producer with engineer Hank Linderman. The record marks the culmination of the Eagles bassist's unhurried, yet inspired reflections of life. Illuminated by an array of fine musicians and singers, the album plays like a multicolored corona around Schmit's distinctive artistry. From the jaunty opening track "My Hat" to the soaring harmonies and heartfelt reflections of "This Waltz," this is more than another album in a great artist's catalog.
Leap Of Faith is available via Benowen Records as a 180 gram 2-LP vinyl set, CD and digitally. For exclusive bundles, visit the Timothy B. Schmit Online Store or iTunes.
On Monday, November 27, at 6:00 pm PT (9:00 pm ET), Schmit will be interviewed live by Jim Ladd on "Deep Tracks," which airs nationwide on SiriusXM, Channel 27.
As a member of the bands the Eagles (since 1977 he can be heard on hits such as "I Can't Tell You Why" and "Love Will Keep Us Alive"), and Poco ("Keep On Tryin'"), Schmit's musical contributions have laid the groundwork to some of pop/folk/rock music's most important songs. He has vocally contributed to such memorable songs as "Look What You've Done To Me" (Boz Skaggs), "Fire Lake" (Bob Seger), to Richard Marx's hit "Don't Mean Nothing" and added bass, guitar and harmonies on Toto's hit singles "I Won't Hold You Back" and "Africa," Crosby Stills and Nash's "Wasted On The Way" and multiple tracks by Steely Dan. He's played internationally as a member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band and Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band.
