Juanita Stein Announces Fall Tour, Support for The Killers – THE PARTAE

by the partae



Following the warmly received release of her solo debut, America, Juanita Stein has confirmed an international fall tour. Dates include a support run with The Killers in the UK as well as several headline US dates. Stein will make key stops in Austin, New York City, Philadelphia and Nashville. The Howling Bells frontwoman-turned-solo artist released America on Handwritten Records earlier this summer to critical delight. All dates are listed below.

“Beneath the surface runs a current of unease – none more prevalent than on the dislocated and slightly psychedelic Black Winds or the dream-filled Stargazer, while the gentler Patsy Cline. Stein sounds like she’s coming of age on this album, addressing both her past and her future, and mostly liking what she sees…” -Q

“It’s the voice that grabs you… A wonderfully lucid piece of songwriting, emotion lingering on each note”

– Clash 

“…(her) softly crooning voice sounding as compelling as ever before” – Gold Flake Paint

“It simply is just the start of a long-lasting love affair” – The Revue

More About America and Juanita Stein…

Juanita Stein says, “This record is an ode to the dark heart of America. Of times gone and times to come. Dusty trails, a whimsical 50s suburbia and the haze of the 1960s. I’ve forever idealised American life – growing up in Australia we were fed the American dream through film and television. The dichotomy between what was real and a dream is forever intriguing to me. The music of Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Lee and Nancy and Patsy Cline all informed my musical sensibilities. They opened up this wide screen universe for me.”

An evocative and beautiful record, Stein’s honeyed voice weaves stories of heartbreak and optimism, from the unmistakably Western-influenced Dark Horse, to the moody love song, I’ll CryFlorence is inspired by a real-life photograph by Dorothea Langue, taken during the Great Depression, of the eponymous Florence Owens Thompson. The songs on the LP tell tales of characters real and imagined, Stein’s own experiences woven amongst them.

Juanita Stein grew up in Sydney with her parents and twin brothers. Her first studio recording was aged five, singing on a song of her father’s, and Peter Stein in fact wrote one of the songs on the album, the country music-drenched Cold Comfort (read Juanita talking about Peter on the brilliant My Old Man bloghere).

Stein formed Howling Bells with her brother, Joel, and friends when they moved to London together in 2004. Four acclaimed albums followed, along with headline tours and festival shows around the world, and huge support dates including several US tours with Coldplay and The Killers. A break from Howling Bells around the arrival of her first child saw the first shoots of her solo work start to emerge, and now we find ourselves here. America, an unpredictable place, forever bound up in a uniquely widescreen hope and romance.

America came out to considerable acclaim in July, hitting the UK’s Top 10 Record Store and Americana charts following its release. Stein has so far played festival shows including in London’s Hyde Park and at Cambridge Folk Festival, as well as headline dates in Brighton and London, in support of its release.
