Painter, illustrator, author, songwriter, and former Guided By Voices guitarist, TOBIN SPROUT reinvents his craft with a stark and poignant solo album, Empty Horses, a dramatic and unexpected departure from his previous work. The album is a meticulously observed study of America and Americana (not the music, but the state of mind). It's an alternative American Songbook, if you will - a collection of laments to simpler times and the struggle for what's right, peppered with an examination of faith and the search for a sense of justice.  

In Guided By Voices, (1986-1997, 2011-2014) Sprout penned classic songs including "Atom Eyes", "Its Like Soul Man", Gleemer", "A Good Flying Bird", "14 Cheerleader Coldfront, and released solo albums on Matador, Burger and Fire Records.  On tour, Sprout will be joined by his longtime band with Tommy Schichtel, Steve Vermillion and Gary Vermillion.

Critics on the new album Empty Horses (Fire Records):

The perfect aural encapsulation of melancholy: in turns somnambulant, romantic and all-consuming Rolling Stone

A great pop songwriter Uncut

Crumpled yet precise, confronting American ghosts  Mojo

Songwriting of this quality, with powers of suggestion and intimations of doubt, deserves an audience well beyond the historically-inclined.   The Line Of Best Fit
