Though best known for his work as the primary singer-songwriter for The Get Up Kids, Pryor has a vast musical catalog including his folk-tinged group The New Amsterdams, children’s music project Terrible Twos and indie-rock super group Lasorda – featuring Nate Harold (fun.), Mike Standberg (Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band), and Dustin Kinsey (The New Amsterdams). Never one to slow down, Pryor also contributes to Chicago start-up Downwrite – a website that enables artists to create fan-commissioned songs and connect with fans on a personal and creative level – and performs online concerts for StageIt – an online platform dedicated to monetized live streamed performances. In 2012, Pryor started his own Nothing To Write Home About podcast wherein he interviews fellow musicians and industry friends such as Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra), Chris Conley (Saves The Day), Kevin Devine, Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), and more.


In addition to the previously announced tour dates, Pryor will be performing this Friday at the Lawrence Arts Center – joined by a full ensemble of strings and horns. The performance will be taped and recorded for later release. Tickets for the performance are available now at
