His T-Shirt may say "Who The Fuck Is Sturgill Simpson?" but we know exactly who he is around here. And apparently, the rest of the world is catching on. He moves up to Northerly Island for his biggest local show to date.
What They Say
Glad to see Sturgill back on the road in 2017. The world needs him.
What We Say
Sturgill Simpson’s A Sailor’s Guide To Earth is the rare album that traverses the entire world, both musically and lyrically. It’s dizzyingly diverse, jumping from one style to the next, with ports of call in Motor City and Music Row, Harlem and Stax, Berlin and London, yet it never leaves Simpson’s very specific point of view. It’s his most personal album as well as his most ambitious: a song cycle penned as a sailor’s poignant letter home to the wife and child he left behind.
