Tokyo Name and Photo Rock and Sock Records announced today that their recording artist, Tokyo Rosenthal, will begin his Fall Tour on September 24th. In a career that started with the country rock boom, Rosenthal has honed his craft and “rootsy/ Americana with a little blues thrown in” sound to perfection. His most successful release to date, “Ghosts”, reached #5 on the Euro Americana Chart and the critical acclaim and US airplay has been overwhelming.  This will be Rosenthal’s first extended tour since his April and May UK tour. The tour will begin in ”Toke’s” backyard of ”The Triangle” in North Carolina and extend South before heading up to the Northeast in November. Tokyo will be joined on the tour at various times by Charlie Chamberlain(mandolin/lead guitar), Bobby Britt(fiddle) and Warren Sharp(lead guitar). In addition to live venue performances Toke will also be making radio and TV appearances.

Included among the dates announced so far will be Tokyo’s second appearance at The Bitter End in New York City this year. Toke will also be performing in Newport, Rhode Island for the first time in over 20 years, an area where he did a lot of his early performing. ”I’m looking forward to playing new venues in markets where “Ghosts“ got extensive airplay and returning to venues to play again for old friends and fans”, said Rosenthal. “It’s also a privilege to make music with Charlie, Bobby, and Warren.”
Press quotes:
“There is no perfect love but there is damn near perfect old time Americana swing here, the affectionate dance prevails, giddy yet tender it heals… These are songs that seem to talk to each different one of us they are immediate in their connection yet their caress abides long after the player has stopped spinning.”  – THE NEXT BIG THING“Be it ballads or rather rocking titles such as Inside Your Skull, this musician masters all facettes.” –Bruno Michel – CMJ

“I have a soft spot for Toke (pet name for those in the in crowd), he is one of those great musicians thats just keeps coming up with great music.” Simon Barrett – USA TODAY/BNN

“ ‘Did we really start that war… did they really lie about what for?’, Tokyo asks over a dramatic fusion of swirling fiddle and bombastic drums.” – COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE MAGAZINE
