Kishi Bashi today announced a tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of his beloved debut album, 151a. The March/April 2022 run will take Kishi Bashi and his full band throughout the eastern U.S. and into Canada, and see them performing the album in full alongside additional songs from his catalog. A current itinerary is below and tickets go on sale this Friday, December 10th at 12pm local time.
Released in 2012 via Joyful Noise Recordings, 151a established Kishi Bashi—née Kaoru Ishibashi—as an artist to watch in his own right, following years performing as a multi-instrumentalist with artists including Regina Spektor and Of Montreal. The album earned praise from NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday, NPR Music (‘Best Songs of 2012), Interview Magazine, and more.
In April, Kishi Bashi released his acclaimed Emigrant EP, a six-song collection that serves as a time capsule of 2020 as it meditates on the anxieties of the COVID-19 pandemic, the comforts of nature, the pains of resource-fueled conflicts, and the resiliency that emerges from struggle. The collection earned great press from The AV Club, NPR Music's All Songs Considered, No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, and more, including an invitation to participate on NPR's Morning Edition’s Song Project series, where he debuted his new, poignant and musically grand original, "For Every Voice That Never Sang." The EP was his follow up to 2019’s album Omoiyari, which channels the hard-learned lessons of history by reckoning with the country’s past internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII. The album earned glowing press from The New York Times, NPR’s All Things Considered, NPR Music (‘First Listen,’ ‘New Music Friday’), Billboard, The New Yorker, Noisey, Smithsonian Magazine, Relix, Paste, Exclaim!, and many more.
