  • Los Angeles, CA—Harper Simon has announced plans to embark on a summer tour beginning in August, that will include a string of dates in major cities including San Diego, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Brooklyn, NY and Toronto, ON. The tour will continue to support Simon's critically acclaimed sophomore album DIVISION STREET which released in the US on March 13th to critical praise.

    DIVISION STREET was hailed by Rolling Stone as "pop-rock that stands on its own and then some" and People Magazine as "dreamy." The 10-track album set was produced by Simon and Tom Rothrock (Elliott Smith, Beck), and was recorded with a small coterie of guest musicians—including Pete Thomas from Elvis Costello's Attractions on drums, Nikolai Fraiture from the Strokes on bass, vocals by Inara George, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers on synths, as well as Nate Walcott from Bright Eyes and Wilco's Mikael Jorgensen.
