LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Singer/songwriter Fink is expected to embark on a solo acoustic tour beginning in September, with his first US dates in five years.
“It’s been too long since I’ve been able to get out to the US and Canada for shows. 5 years,” Fink said. “Turns out Europe is quite big and requires a large amount of attention 😉 This time, I wanted to come back and do something really special, different – something I haven’t done since the early days, like a kind of cathartic stripping back of all the layers – just me, my guitars, and a bag full of songs. I wanted to get back to where it all started, and play in great-sounding, intimate rooms – far removed from the wonderful but often-stressful big theatres, festival main stages, and arenas of Europe. I’ve been waiting to find time for a tour like this for so long, and now it’s here. I honestly cannot wait to hit these stages and meet you all – with some bucket list shows down south and some familiar haunts out west – I just can’t wait to hit the road, build some memories and sing my heart out.”
Fink will kick off his intimate 18-date run of solo performances in Washington D.C on Sept. 18 at Washington City Winery until his final show at Columbia City Theatre in Seattle on Oct. 17. Other dates include two performances at Rough Trade in Brooklyn; Mod Club in Toronto; Evanston SPACE in Chicago; Gasa Gasa in New Orleans; and The Troubadour in Los Angeles.
Fink has released six studio albums; released his first volume of original blues material entitled Fink’s Sunday Night Blues Club, Vol.1; has written, recorded, and produced for various artists (John Legend, Bonobo, Amy Winehouse); has been remixed by Justin Vernon, Colin Stetson, DJ Tennis and Ricardo Villalobos; and has had his music used extensively in films and TV programs such as Better Call Saul, Selma, Dear John, Collateral Beauty, Blacklist, House M.D and The Walking Dead.
His most recent album, Resurgam, was released on his own Ninja Tune imprint label R’COUP’D and was produced by Flood (Nick Cave, Depeche Mode, U2, PJ Harvey). Fink is currently working on new material for release later this year.
