Right before Spin Doctors’ 30th anniversary performance at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl, guitarist Eric Schenkman will release his third solo record – Who Shot John? – on October 26.

The new LP marks Schenkman’s first release since his 2013 Sanctuary City album with Gary Craig.

“I’ve been playing the Ontario blues circuit for about a decade,” Schenkman explains in a press release. “I have this long history as a guitarist in relationship to the blues up here in Canada. And I’ve been writing songs in a couple of different idioms. So Who Shot John? comes from a convergence of my three worlds — vocals, guitar and songwriting. It’s about my life. Where I’m at now.”

The guitarist has announced a trio of shows to celebrate Who Shot John?. See below for tour dates and visit Schenkman’s official website for more information.
