David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash unite as “three together” for the Summer 2014 dates amid a full slate of side and solo projects:
David Crosby undertakes a sold out solo tour in the U.S. in April in support of CROZ, his first solo release in 20 years, with two additional sold solo shows at the end of July. The album was released January 28 on Blue Castle Records, the label Crosby and Nash founded in 2011, and debuted at #36 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Stephen Stills recently toured solo and with The Rides, his blues-rock trio with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg; their album Can’t Get Enough was released last summer. Carry On, a 4-CD box chronicling Stills’ career –produced by Nash and Joel Bernstein – also came out in 2013. On April 5, Stills and his wife Kristen hosted the 2nd Light Up The Blues Concert to benefit Autism Speaks in downtown Los Angeles. Proceeds from the sold out concert will go towards Autism Speaks’ research and advocacy efforts for families and individuals impacted by the disorder.
Graham Nash recently wrapped a solo tour – followed by an ongoing book tour for his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life, published in September by Crown Publishing Group. He performed two solo shows at the brand new City Winery in Napa, Calif. on April 29 and 30. Nash also exhibited his artwork and photography throughout 2013.
More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon and played its first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music. David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times, with Crosby, Stills & Nash and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies, respectively. They are also in the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, honored both for CSN as a group and as individual solo artists.
