The Voice of an angel- Lior Tours nationally

Monday, 13 January 2014
Album released March 7 2014 National tour announced
On March 7 2014, acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter Lior will release his fourth studio album Scattered Reflections, a collection of songs written during and inspired by recent travels. Ahead of the album release, Lior will further explore the art of travel with his extensive Scattered Reflections Tour 2014 starting in late February and including shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart and many regional centres.
Scattered Reflections will be released independently and was financed largely through crowd sourcing from many of Lior’s fans through a PledgeMusic online campaign, a testament to his loyal and strong following.
The title track ‘Scattered Reflections’ explores the juxtaposed feelings inherent in travel; the immense feeling of mortality and insignificance intertwined with an overwhelming sense of a connected and shared humanity.
Recorded in collaboration with new producer Lachlan Carrick in Sydney and in Lior’s hometown of Melbourne, the album features long-standing musical
 
collaborator Brett Hirst on bass alongside new band members Evan Mannell and Bree Van Reyk, both on percussion. Guitarist and songwriter Cameron Deyell (Totara Jack) co-wrote a number of songs on the album.
Scattered Reflections also features a handful of beautiful acoustic gems which have become synonymous with Lior. The hauntingly beautiful track 'My Grandfather' may be Lior's most intimate moment yet as a singer-songwriter and will surely receive a very strong emotive response as he tours Australia this year.
Renowned for his stunning voice, incredible musicality and acclaimed live shows, Lior has received several ARIA nominations since his debut in 2005. His stunning independent debut and self-financed album, Autumn Flow, was one of the most successful independent debut releases by an Australian artist with sales surpassing Platinum. Three Aria nominations followed, including a nomination for Best Male Artist.
In February 2008, Lior’s second album, Corner of an Endless Road, debuted at number two on both the Australian album charts and on iTunes, whilst also topping the Independent charts for several weeks. A sold-out Shadows and Light national tour followed.
Lior released his third studio album Tumbling into the Dawn in September 2010, produced by the Grammy Award winning Francois Tetaz whom Lior had worked with on his two previous albums.
Illustrating Lior’s breadth and diversity as an artist, in 2012 Lior received The Screen Writer ‘Song of the Year’ Award for the children’s song ‘Lullaby’, commissioned by the ABC for the acclaimed television series “Giggle and Hoot”.
In 2013, in addition to working on his new studio album and performing at the Edinburgh Festival, Lior also collaborated with renowned composer and conductor Nigel Westlake on ‘Compassion’, a song cycle for voice and orchestra commissioned by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Following its premiere at the Sydney Opera House, Lior and Westlake were invited to perform the piece with the other major Australian orchestras around the country with further performances slated for Adelaide and Melbourne in 2014. A recording of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra performance was released in late 2013 and debuted at number one on the Classical charts.
Scattered Reflections is an album to be treasured. Tickets for Lior’s live shows are on sale now.
