Singer/songwriter GARY JULES will release his new album BIRD on November 25
via CDbaby.com and the iTunes Music Store. Jules is backed by a band for the
new set, GARY JULES AND THE GROUP RULES, comprising a number of Jules’
collaborators from Los Angeles’s HOTEL CAFE cohort: Al Sgro (vocals, drums,
percussion, synthesizers), Heather Brown-Dodge (vocals), Adam Grace (piano),
Ben Peeler (lapsteel, weisenborn, and electric guitars), Ed Maxwell
(electric and upright bass, keys, synthesizers), and Will Golden (acoustic
guitar, synthesizers, bass guitar), with appearances by Pedestrian’s Joel
Shearer (electric guitar), Jason "Pip" Pipkin (drums) and Gabriel Mann
(piano and organ). BIRD also features a duet, "Been A Long Time," Jules’
friend and frequent touring partner Jim Bianco. See below for a track list.

Jules will support the new release with an appearance on KCRW-FM’s esteemed
program "Morning Becomes Eclectic" with host Nic Harcourt on Friday,
November 21, followed by a four-week, Tuesday night residency at Hotel Cafe
beginning November 25 (as well as a San Francisco date at Cafe Du Nord on
December 3). In February and March 2009, Jules will support all dates on a
West Coast tour with singer/songwriter DONAVON FRANKENREITER. See reverse

"Playing at the Hotel Cafe is a family reunion for me," says Jules. "I got
my start just as the venue was doing the same, with the ‘Tuesdays at the
Hotel’ residency, and all the musicians on this record are people I met and
played with there. It’s like playing in my living room, so I’m really
excited to be doing a month there to introduce this new album."
