LA singer songwriter Xander Smith announces his return to Europe this fall. In 2012 Smith raised over $10,000 from “Kickstarter,” and fan contributions, which helped to record his debut solo album, Hey San Pedro, and fund the subsequent tour. These tour dates stretched from Manchester UK all the way to Siberia. Back in the North America, Smith headlined clubs in most major U.S. cities, opened for iconic acts like New Order, Russia’s Mumiy Troll and Everclear, and even found him standing center stage at the legendary Greek theater in Los Angeles. European street teams, fan enthusiasm, strong attendance and positive live reviews have prompted promoters to bring Smith back to these European cities as well as adding stops in Iceland, Norway, Ukraine and Switzerland. Look out for Xander Smith solo shows or with his Run Run Run at venue near you!

Thank you all for an incredible 2012! With the help of so many kind souls, I was able to realize my "Hey San Pedro" solo record. It took literally sixteen years of living its stories, trying out song ideas, and then collecting the musical/lyrical bits and pieces that would comprise this work. Then, I had the priveledge of taking my J45 acoustic guitar and this record to cities all over the world. What a dream come true. Sitting in a cafe in Hamburg, having a tea and getting ready to perform songs that came straight from my bedroom was magical. Last year Run Run Run returned to Russia and nearby parts, and played to incredible crowds. I met Clive Davis and many other music business icons in NYC with my friend, boss and mentor Herb Alpert (and Lani Hall), starting playing soft ball again, vacationed in the Ukraine, made a great record with Pauley Perrette and her new project Stop Making Friends, moved into a new apartment, discovered Norwegian brown cheese (my new true love) and finally shaved off my infamous moustache. oh...whew... ready for 2013! BRING IT ON!!!
