Youth Lagoon Tours This Spring, Covers John Denver

It’s only been a few weeks since the bedroom indie dream-rocker who is Youth Lagoon wrapped up his most recent tour, but Trevor Powers is already plotting his next move. Perhaps it’s the neuroses that inspired the content of his debut album that pushed Powers to stay on the road.

Powers, the 22-year-old frontman of his homemade Youth Lagoon project, has booked dates all across the U.S. this March and April, but in the months between now and then he’ll be traveling to gigs in Seattle, Vancouver and Portland. His tour stops indicate the success of the album he recorded in his bedroom; while just a few months ago Powers played Mercury Lounge in New York, his two-gig stop in March is slotted for the much larger Music Hall Of Williamsburg and Bowery Ballroom.

The tireless musician may or may not have finished up at Boise State University (and he definitely quit his job at Urban Outfitters), but he certainly has the motivation to fuel his musical career. He recently recorded a John Denver cover for Sirius XMU, which is streaming below. “John Denver was cheesy as hell, but he had a few good moments,” Powers posted on Facebook.
