Kaplan, who is currently on a major tour of the U.S., will host a livestream via his YouTube channel performing songs from I’ll Get By this Wednesday, March 11th, at 12:30pm Pacific time – fans can watch it HERE.

Released on Fantasy Records, the EP has garnered critical attention from tastemaker media, from Paste to American Songwriter who described Kaplan’s nuanced vocal as “rich, tender and abounding.

On I’ll Get By, Kaplan shares personal stories about love, anxiety, loss and his time growing up in California. Exploring a range of sounds from soul to bluegrass, these songs are threaded together by the search for spiritual redemption, and cast with acoustic guitar, pedal steel, swirling organ and deep groove percussion that beautifully complement Kaplan’s haunting, other worldly vocal ability. A compelling introduction from an inspiring singer songwriter, I’ll Get By pays homage to some of his early influences such as Bill Withers, John Denver and Simon and Garfunkel, whilst offering a new contemporary twist on 60s heritage influenced folk music.

With the exception of the lead track, “Change on the Rise,” (produced by Paul Moak) I’ll Get By was helmed by producer Mike Mogis, well known for his work with Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and First Aid Kit among others. On I’ll Get By, Kaplan, the former Pentatonix star, raised just 40 minutes from Sequoia National Park in the rolling hills of central California, has rediscovered his musical roots and delved deeper into the music he’s always loved.
