Named among the most “essential acts to catch on tour this fall” (Consequence of Sound), Sylvan Esso hit the road in September on their long-awaited, reinvigorating run of Shaking Out The Numb shows. Since hitting the road last month, the band has shared the stage with Phoebe Bridgers and Brittany Howard at a special concert they presented in the wake of Bonnaroo’s cancellation, they awed LA’s Greek Theatre, dazzled at Firefly, and sold out shows in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver and many more, delivering crowds “a feeling nothing short of unabridged joy” (American Songwriter).

The performances feature Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn in their two-piece setup for the first time in three years, playing songs from one of 2020’s “most resonant, warm, necessary albums” (EW), Free Love,
which just turned 1 and surpassed 50 million streams. Following an impressive streak of remote appearances for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS This Morning: Saturday, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concerts, plus the release of multiple concert films, an experimental podcast series and countless collaborations, fans will finally get to see Sylvan Esso perform songs like “Numb,” “Ferris Wheel,” “Rooftop Dancing”
and more Free Love
favorites live on stage.
In recent weeks, Sylvan Esso also launched their own artist-run label, Psychic Hotline,
streamed their sold-out show at Berkeley’s Greek Theatre on SiriusXMU
, and surprised-released an EP on Bandcamp
with all proceeds benefiting Imagine Water Works, a New Orleans organization focused on climate justice, water management, disaster readiness and response. You can connect with Sylvan Esso via the following links. Check out all upcoming tour dates HERE
