The British-born artist who calls New York City home will tour North America in support of the album this spring and summer, including performances at SXSW 2013.

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Lucero, Old Crow Medicine Show), the well-crafted songs on Wishbone live up to the expectations put upon a young man theWall Street Journal touted as a “promising talent” with “much more to say,” after the release of his Liam Watson produced debut album A Winter Tale. That album won Long praise for his “sturdy but graceful” tunes in the Los Angeles Times, while Entertainment Weekly wrote that “his old-before-his-time romanticism and strong rasp are real draws.” Throughout Wishbone Long displays his deft control of melody and tone, well-practiced over many years of prolific songwriting.
