4-time GRAMMY winner Esperanza Spalding has announced a fall tour of North and South America set to kick off August 13th at the Richmond Jazz Festival in Richmond, VA. Full dates below.
The tour follows the genre-bending composer, bassist and vocalist’s international run that saw sold out performances across South Korea, Japan, Australia, Europe and North America. All of this prompted Pitchfork to proclaim her April 14th concert at the historic Apollo Theater in New York City as one of their eight favorite concerts of the year.
A daring tapestry of music, vibrant imagery, and performance art, Emily’s D+Evolution, (released March 4, 2016 on Concord Records) was voted one of the best albums of 2016 (so far) by NPR, Rolling Stone, Time, LA Times, Boston Globe, Paste, New York magazine’s Vulture.com and more.
In case you missed it, BET Soul recently premiered Spalding’s new video with director Calmatic (Kendrick Lamar, Jhené Aiko) for her slow-burning hit "Unconditional Love." Watch the video here:
