Ezra Furman Tickets
Ezra Furman, the San Francisco-via-Chicago singer-songwriter, is nothing if not eccentric. The musician is lively on stage, and by all accounts, he puts on a killer show -- if you're able to snag Ezra Furman tickets in time.
As an experienced musician with several previous bands, Ezra Furman has done a considerable amount of touring. The artist has handful of albums under his belt from different musical band incarnations, and he's played them all over the world, too. Furman has appeared on musical festival stages from Roskilde Festival in Denmark to London's Rough Trade East and Ohio's Nelsonville Music Festival in the U.S. Soon, Furman will take off for another string of shows.
A superb musical ability runs in Ezra Furman's family. The musician's younger brother, Jonah, is also artfully gifted, and he plays in the Boston-based garage rock band, Krill. Krill have made a name for themselves since their founding, and they have toured with indie bands like Speedy Ortiz and Ava Luna in venues from New Orleans, Louisiana to Antwerp, Belgium.
By now, Furman is used to the Bob Dylan comparisons. The young Chicago songwriter has a knack for turning a phrase with lo-fi charm, and he's so prolific there have been points in his career without writing topics. He has already been in and out of several bands, including Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, with whom he released three albums -- the last of which Furman tacked on a unique, custom-made song for each album unit. Today, the singer primarily writes and records solo, but he tours with his band, Ezra Furman & the Boy-Friends.
After breaking away from his Tufts University-formed band, Ezra Furman and the Harpoons, Furman set off to work on his own solo material. After crowdfunding an album called "The Year of No Returning," the artist was able to cull enough label attention to be signed to Bar/None Records, a label with which he'd work for the release of his next and most successful album to date, 2013's "Day of the Dog." The album received high praise in the U.K., most notably from The Guardian, which gave it a 5/5 score review. The newspaper called it "an album of classicist rock'n'roll that never feels like an exercise, but a living, breathing piece of self-expression.
Following his separation from the Harpoons, Ezra Furman took on a big challenge: to raise enough money to release a solo project. His goal was soon realised. After launching a Kickstarter page, he was able to fund the recording and release of his first solo endeavour, "The Year of No Returning." Critics lauded his ability to write clever lyrics. Music blog Consequence of Sound called it "another batch of the finest written tunes you could ask for," and Paste notes that "his lyrics still twist with delicious barbs." Better received was the following album, 2013's "Day of the Dog." The Guardian awarded it a 5/5 score ranking, and NME called it "an unexpected gem." Furman's following tour ended with a sold-out show in London's The Scala -- a music venue with a capacity of 1,145.
Ezra Furman is a quirky performer. As evidenced by some of his music videos, most notably "Restless Year," Furman has been known to appear on stage in lipstick and a dress. Fans can expect a "bravura routine" as the Guardian writes, wherein the musician puts on a show that is unpredictable and energetic, but supremely fun to watch.
