Meet: Josh T. Pearson, New Mute Artist

Mute is delighted to announce the signing of the unique artist Josh T. Pearson and details of his long-awaited debut solo album release.
Recorded in Berlin, Last Of The Country Gentlemen will be released in the Spring of 2011. Josh has already announced UK tour dates and will be making his way to the US sometime soon.
Hailing from Texas, Josh T. Pearson first gained people's attentions with his former band, the short-lived phenomenon that was Lift to Experience. The collective only released one sprawling masterpiece, 2001's The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, before splitting up shortly thereafter. Lift to Experience were so beloved by John Peel that he had them record three sessions in five months and were included in the Best 125 Peel Sessions of all time.
Since then, Josh T. Pearson has spent many years in the wilderness, only releasing one studio recording, I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry, a split 7” single with the Dirty Three and appearing on the Mercury Prize nominated Bat for Lashes album Fur and Gold on the track, Trophy.
