Jeff Bridges & The Abiders are hitting the road this summer and have announced a dozen new concert dates including the band’s very first east coast outing! Since the release of Bridges’ acclaimed self-titled album on Blue Note Records, the band has been performing live across the U.S. from clubs to theatres to the famed Stagecoach country music festival.
An Oscar-winner for his portrayal of a grizzled former country music legend in the 2009 film Crazy Heart, actor, songwriter, and musician Jeff Bridges released his debut album Be Here Soon in 2000 and his self-titled major-label follow up on Blue Note Records in 2011. Produced by Bridges’ Crazy Heart collaborator, the Academy Award-winning, multiple-Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer T Bone Burnett, the album was a culmination of their more than three decade personal, professional, and musical friendship (the two met in 1980 on the set of Heaven’s Gate). View the video for the track “What A Little Bit of Love Can Do” online here.
Bridges’ musical endeavors have led him to perform at Neil Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert, the charity-single remake of “We Are the World,” with his band on the Today Show, Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Austin City Limits, Live with Regis & Kelly, The Colbert Report, live sessions for Yahoo!, SiriusXM, AOL Music, and shows across the country. Currently, Bridges is writing and recording material for his untitled third studio album.
This summer Bridges will be seen in the upcoming sci-fi drama The Giver, based on the novel by Lois Lowry. Bridges plays the “Giver” in a futuristic, seemingly utopian society that gradually begins to fall apart when Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) is selected to inherit the position of “Receiver of Memory” and learn about war, pain, suffering, choice and differences in the “real” world. The film opens August 15.
