BLIND PILOT TO APPEAR ON LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY FEBRUARY 9, 2009

Portland, Oregon-based Blind Pilot, the folk-pop outfit that garnered such accolades as iTunes' "Single of the Week", Starbucks' "Artist of the Week", made taste maker radio station KEXP's "Best of 2008" list, performed live on taste maker radio station KCRW, and had NPR proclaiming their debut, "3 Rounds and a Sound", one of the "best debuts of 2008", will appear on Last Call with Carson Daly on February 9, 2009 (filmed on February 9, 2009 but airing, technically, on February 10, 2009) at 1:35am/12:35am central, following Late Night with Conan O'Brien.

Blind Pilot sounds something like a wistful mix of The Shins with a bit of Iron & Wine folksiness. But these comparisons don¹t give a full representation of the unbelievable beauty of this album. As Willamette Week¹s Casey Jarman proclaimed, "Front man Israel Nebeker sounds like a less theatric version of James Mercer: every bit as sincere and captivating, with vocal control and style to spare. And this band has songs coming out of its ears: deep, clever guitar-driven tunes fleshed out with soaring horn arrangements. Listening to and thinking about these songs has kept me awake at night lately."

Blind Pilot is also embarking on their first national tour.
