Julia Deans is pleased to announce the artists that will open for her We Light Fire album release tour. Due to illness, it is also with regret that the tour dates for Hamilton and Leigh have been rescheduled.
Following her opening for Marlon Williams’ sold out nationwide tour, this is the former Fur Patrol icon’s first headline tour, with full band, in over seven years.
Having put out the call to find local female musicians for each of her shows around the country, Julia has finalised the nine acts.
“It was not an easy choice whittling down the list to just one artist in each town. There are so many wonderful women musicians out there. I can’t wait to share the stage with them next month”.
