THE WAIFS ANNOUNCE SPRING TOUR DATES

Waifs.jpgBeloved Australian folk rock band The Waifs have announced US tour dates in April and May 2016. The two and a half week headline tour, featuring music from the band’s latest album, Beautiful You, kicks off with a show at the City Winery in Nashville, TN on April 24. Tickets are available via thewaifs.com. See below for all of the currently scheduled shows.

A strong sense of melody and affecting, illustrative lyricism guided The Waifs’ songwriting trifecta of Donna Simpson, Vikki Thorn and Josh Cunningham as they wrote Beautiful You over the course of four years. With bassist Ben Franz and drummer David Ross Macdonald, the 5-piece outfit created an album that echoes with both wisdom and pop appeal.

The trip that began in a van in 1992, with the three troubadours playing gigs anywhere in Australia that would have them, has led The Waifs to multiple ARIA awards, platinum albums and successful tours across the world, including opening for Bob Dylan in North America and Australia in 2003. True to form, Beautiful You features their trademark sound: “a bit of Blues and Roots, a bit of Country, a bit of Jazz, anything really.”
