As Laura Veirs announces her first UK tour, Getintothis’ Naomi Campbell has news of a February date.
Folk/alt country singer-songwriter Laura Veirs this month is on the road promoting her 10th studio album. The Lookout.
The album was produced by Veirs‘ husband and long term collaborator Tucker Martine (First Aid Kit, Don Henley).
The Portland native will play Jacaranda Records Phase One on February 7 as part of an 8 date tour with support from Sam Amidon.
