Scottish-born singer and songwriter Emeli Sandé, who has been thrilling fans across the Atlantic over the past year with her rich, soulful voice and sophisticated songwriting, will make her North American live debut with a string of Stateside showcases in February and March. In addition to private shows in New York City and Los Angeles, Sandé will perform for the public in San Francisco, Minneapolis, and Toronto, Ontario. Please see below for details.

The mini-tour will give North American audiences a preview of the songs featured on Sandé’s upcoming debut album, Our Version Of Events, which will be released by Capitol Records in June. The album — which includes the U.K. singles “Heaven,” “Daddy” and “Next To Me”— reveals Sandé to be an uncompromising creative force who draws inspiration from the likes Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, and Lauryn Hill, but combines it with an instinctive feel for pop songcraft that have made her a radio favorite in the UK. The result is a contemporary-yet-timeless album and a heady soundscape into which “Her remarkable voice is put centre-stage from the outset”  as the UK’s Q magazine recently noted, adding “She’s made an album that deserves to linger in the limelight – passionate, powerful and possessed of real star quality.”

Sandé has already been announced the winner of the coveted Critics Choice Award at the Brit Awards for 2012 (recent winners include Adele and Florence + the Machine) and, in an unprecedented twist, the Brits have also nominated her as Breakthrough British Artist. The Awards will be given on Feb 21st in London soon after the album’s Feb 13th UK release. Besides the industry embrace, critical acclaim and radio success she’s already received in the UK, her fellow artists are also lining up. Early Sandé admirers include Coldplay and Alicia Keys, both of whom recently tapped her as an opening act. Keys was so impressed that she has been writing with Sandé for her next album and co-wrote and produced the track “Hope” on Our Version of Events. Finally Adele was moved to Tweet “How incredible is she” upon seeing Sandé’s performance on Later…with Jools Holland.

Emeli Sandé’s upcoming tour dates are as follows:
02/27     New York, NY - The Box (private showcase)
03/01     Los Angeles, CA - Hollywood Forever Cemetery (private showcase)
03/02     San Francisco, CA - Café du Nord
03/05     Minneapolis, MN - Dakota
03/07     Toronto, ON - The Drake
