, Staff

Martin Sexton has announced plans to embark on a spring tour in support of his new EP, Fall Like Rain. The singer-songwriter will hit the Boston for a performance at the House of Blues in Boston on Saturday, March 24. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Live Nation for $25 and $35.

Fall Like Rain
, which follows his 2010 full length album Sugarcoating, was released last month. The new EP is comprised of 5-songs including single “Fall Like Rain” (check out the official video below) and a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth”. The Syracuse, New York native decided to to record a five-track EP rather than a full-length album to get the songs out in a timely fashion.

“These songs are relevant today and I didn’t want to wait to release a full-length album,” explained Sexton in a press release. “And in a down economy, we’re getting new music to people for the price of a soy latte.”

In a recent interview with American Songwriter, Sexton explained that the album was inspired by his reflection on “the idea of life, unencumbered by the shelters of our favorite distractions and the illusions of safety.”

Along with next month’s show in Boston, Sexton will also perform a second show in Massachusetts this spring. Joined by special guest Stephen Kellogg, he’ll perform at the Calvin Theatre in Northampton on Saturday, April 21. Tickets for the show are now on sale through NBOTickets for $25 and $35.
