JULIEN BAKER ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER AUSTRALIAN TOUR FOR SPRING 2016

“Completely transfixing. Proves it’s still possible to hold a room’s breath still with just a voice and guitar.” – L.A Times

Today is a special day. Love Police Touring and Spunk Records are thrilled to announce the first ever Australian shows for U.S singer-songwriter Julien Baker.

Baker hails from Memphis, Tennessee and last December quietly released one of the most beautiful and stunning albums of 2015. Her debut record ‘Sprained Ankle’ – a collection of very personal and heartfelt songs immediately became a classic and had music fans and critics-alike the world over gushing.

Julien Baker’s music and lyrics speak to all our nagging insecurities, making her songs instantly relatable. Stylistically the music recalls the high points of 90’s indie rock with a deeper strain of classic-country song writing. These intensely intimate recordings will break your heart with their ethereal beauty and showcase an extraordinary poise, well beyond her 20 years of age.

Come November, Australian audiences will be able to hear these genuinely deep and surprisingly dark stories come to life. When Julien takes to the stage with just her ragged-edged voice and ringing telecaster, the results are usually mesmerizing. She’s been wowing audiences across North America this year with this magical combination and even visited the U.K and Europe for the first time. She’s supported bands like The National, Band Of Horses, Frightened Rabbit and her festival resume now includes Austin City Limits, Primavera Sound and the prestigious Newport Folk Festival, where she stole the show.

Rolling Stone said…

“Baker played, as she typically does, by herself, proving that the most powerful performances at Newport can still come from a solitary artist.”

Julien will play four intimate club shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth as well as some sweet festival slots including Mullum, Queenscliff and Fairgrounds.

Joining Julien as the main support on these headline shows is local Spunk label mate Emma Russack, performing songs from her new album ‘In A New State’.

 There is every chance that you need an album like this in your life, even if you don’t know it yet.”
