Love Police Touring is pleased to announce that superb singer-songwriter Eilen Jewell and her band will return to Australia in May and early June 2018.
Touring for the first time in two years they will play at Leadbelly on Wednesday 30th & Thursday 31st May.
Hailing from Boise, Idaho, Eilen Jewell is a remarkable singer-songwriter whose honesty, confidence and respect permeate her music dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006.
Since then, she has gone on to record an impressive and classy back bunch of albums with her road-tested touring band, and two more as a member of the Boston-based gospel-charged Sacred Shakers, which includes that well-oiled band at it's core. Her work has won many fans including multiple Oscar winner Tom Hanks who included Heartache Boulevard in his must listen to list.
For her new album, Down Hearted Blues, releasing September 2017 she and husband and bandmate, Jason Beek unearthed 12 vintage gems written or made famous by an array of artists both renowned and obscure, from Willie Dixon and Memphis Minnie to Charles Sheffield and Betty James. Then, like expert stonecutters, they chiseled them into exciting new shapes and forms, honoring history while breathing new life into each discovery.
Eilen will be joined by handpicked supports for each state. The emerging Georgia State Line for all Victorian shows. Max Savage and The False Idols & Naomi Keyte will be part of an afternoon into early evening session complete with food and booze installations in Adelaide. Coming in fresh from Tamworth, Tori Forsyth will open both New South Wales show.
