Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney will tour the UK in March 2019 in support of her album Shelter.
The record was released by Nonesuch Records in June and Chaney performed a sold-out show in London in September and performed on Later… With Jools Holland last month.
The tour will include shows in Whitstable, London, Southampton, Cambridge, Bristol and Manchester. The Southampton show falls on International Women’s Day (8th March) and will feature a specially curated programme to include songs by Chaney’s favourite female songwriters.
The full list of dates is:
3rd – Whitstable Sessions – Whitstable
7th – Cecil Sharp House – London
8th – Turner Sims – Southampton
13th – Cambridge Junction – Cambridge
15th – St. George’s – Bristol
26th – Stoller Hall – Manchester
Chaney’s latest album Shelter is the follow-up to her 2015 Nonesuch debut The Longest River. It was produced by Thomas Bartlett (David Byrne, Magnetic Fields, Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent, Florence Welch, Father John Misty, et al.).
Born in Florence, Italy, Chaney grew up in Oxford, England. She’s been inspired by Billie Holiday, Mozart operas, Sandy Denny, Prince, Tracy Chapman, Bert Jansch, Michael Jackson, and Joni Mitchell.
Over her career to date Chaney has shared the stage with artists including Robert Plant, Zero 7, the Labeque Sisters, Martin and Eliza Carthy, and Kronos Quartet.
