Essie Jain begins a European tour in February, to promote her second album, The Inbetween. The tour opens with four dates in the UK, with more to be confirmed.
Based in New York, Essie returns to the UK following a successful tour with Liz Green and Benjamin Wetherill in September 2008. The Inbetween was released in November to widespread acclaim, and these shows will be her first in the UK since then. The album expands the horizons of her debut (We Made This Ourselves) with a broad spectrum of instrumentation and collaborators to embellish her stunning voice.
Essie will perform each of these shows as a duo, partnering with a revolving troupe of musicians as she tours the country.
