Jade Bird To Tour U.S. With Colter Wall This Spring
Emerging British artist Jade Bird has confirmed U.S. tour dates this spring supporting Colter Wall. The tour will make stops in Washington, DC, New York City, Boston, Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle and more. Jade is also confirmed to perform at SXSW, Stagecoach Country Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Firefly and Mountain Jam this summer. See below for details.
The tour dates come on the heels of the release of Jade's latest single "Lottery," which debuted to immediate critical acclaim-MTV hailed, "Jade Bird gives Joni Mitchell a run for her money on this beautiful new single," and Earmilkfurthers, "Her play on numbers throughout the single, rugged, yet sure of herself style, and appealingly brash rock and indie style are what make Jade Bird one to pay attention to," while The Boot hails, "Jade Bird's one-of-a-kind voice shines."Watch the Kate Moross-directed (Jessie Ware, Sam Smith, Banks) video for "Lottery" here: http://vevo.ly/4kaFpr.
Capping off 2017, which saw the release of her breakout debut EP Something American, Jade spoke with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 and was featured on NPR's World Cafe. She also made her network television debut performing the EP's single "Cathedral" on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."More recently, Jade was chosen as part of the inaugural class of NPR Music Slingshot Artists.
Born in Hexham, U.K., Jade's early life was spent mainly in flight as an "army brat," with time spent in South Wales, Germany and Chesterfield. One of life's few constants proved to be the influence of strong working women. At first via her mother and grandmother, who largely raised her, but later the female role models within the musical subcultures Jade become obsessed with: from empowering country heroines like Loretta Lynn to iconic alternative songwriters like Patti Smith, and following a thread through folk and Americana to incorporating such confessional, undiluted songwriting into pop music (Alanis Morisette's Jagged Little Pill was a similarly early touchstone).
