Jason Lytle Concert on NPR's All Songs Considered

For Immediate Release

Jason Lytle Concert on NPR's All Songs Considered September 3

West Coast Dates with Liam Finn in October

A captivating live performance by singer/songwriter Jason Lytle will be featured on NPR's popular online music program All Songs Considered on September 3. Lytle, acclaimed for his work with previous band Grandaddy, has been touring in support of his remarkable new solo album "Yours Truly, the Commuter," a collection of cinematic like ruminations on isolation and resilience that Spin described as "a textured homage to the lush and laid-back West Coast dream life of his youth" and the BBC called "an adventurous and engaging record that gives more on every listen."

Lytle and band recently played a set at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City which featured both new songs off Yours Truly, the Commuter, some notable Grandaddy favorites and a startling cover of Merle Haggard's "Today I Started Loving You Again." The entire performance can be heard on All Songs Considered this September 3rd.
