Acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Andy Shauf has announced an extensive European tour in February 2017. Starting in London on February 8th, there will be dates in Manchester and Leeds before he heads to the Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Italy, Denmark, Switzerland. The tour follows his thirteen-date, sold out North American tour, and the release in 2016 of his concept album The Party. This series of linked songs reminded more than a few people, somewhat uncomfortably, of parties they’d been to…but still garnered more than a few favourable comments right here on Americana-UK to add to those for its predecessor The Bearer of Bad News. The Party has garnered comparisons to the works of Nilsson and Newman – it’s smart, ironic, lyrically rich and is redolent of that branch of Seventies singer-songwriters. It’s good.
