Six Degrees Records proudly announces Ben Neill's 18 city tour of North America in honor of his new CD, Automotive. The new album features expanded arrangements of music Neill has composed for a series of groundbreaking Volkswagen television ads which can be viewed at http://www.greenbeet.com

Joining Ben on stage for the tour will be vocalist from the album, and lead singer for UK rock band Geneva, Andrew Montgomery. Melody Maker heralded Andrew's voice as "veering from Jeff Buckley's open-throat wail through Craig Wedren's falsetto to Al Green's croon. The show will also feature VJ Bill Jones' live video remixes of the VW ads triggered by Neill's self-designed mutantrumpet as well as VJ Eric Calvi.

Ben Neill is an artist whose work spans the worlds of electronic dance culture, jazz, art music and visual media. His distinctive style of breakbeat programming and the trippy sounds of his mutantrumpet are familiar to fans of his earlier album releases on Astralwerks and Verve Antilles. Rather than separate his artistic endeavors from the soundtracks he has created for commercials, Neill has transformed his televised music into a new album, Automotive.
