Garland Jeffreys' New Album '14 Steps To Harlem' Released to Critical Acclaim

Acclaimed artist Garland Jeffreys' new album, 14 Steps To Harlem, is out now via Luna Park Records/Rough Trade. The album is receiving critical praise from USA Today who calls it "timeless," while American Songwriter proclaims, "[Garland is] one of rock's most compelling voices" and Billboard furthers, "Garland Jeffreys brings it home." Listen to the record here:

Jeffreys continues to tour widely in support of the new album, including stops in Chicago, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, France, Italy, Toronto, Montreal and more. See below for tour details.

Produced with James Maddock, 14 Steps To Harlem delivers what fans have come to expect from Jeffreys: edgy immediacy and literate, emotionally raw lyrics coupled with a still supple voice capable of singing in a wide range of styles. The record features core band members Mark Bosch, Charly Roth, Brian Stanley and Tom Curiano, guest spots by Brian Mitchell and Ben Stivers, a duet with his daughter Savannah and a violin solo by Laurie Anderson.

Jeffreys first captured the public's attention playing the clubs of 1960s Greenwich Village, performing songs that reflected on life as a multi-racial man in America. He has since collaborated and performed with legendary artists from across the musical spectrum including Dr. John, The E Street Band, John Cale, Michael Brecker, Larry Campbell, The Rumour, James Taylor, Phoebe Snow, Sly & Robbie, Sonny Rollins, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Lou Reed, among many others.

A New York Blues Hall of Famer and Long Island Music Hall of Fame inductee, Jeffreys has appeared at such highly regarded festivals such as Montreux Jazz, Byron Bay Blues, Ottawa Folk and Fuji Rock. He appears and performs in Wim Wenders' film The Soul of a Man, and his hit single "Wild In The Streets"-the Circle Jerks cover of which has become an anthem in its own right-was recently featured in Baz Luhrmann's Netflix original series The Get Down.
