I am happy to announce that i will be returning to the US for a short solo tour this coming January! Hello Chicago, Toronto, Brooklyn NYC, Fort Worth, LA, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Atlanta! There’ll be voice, confusing, disturbing sounds, Berlin beats, mausoleum guitar - check it. Support from Chasms in LA and Where Are We in Atlanta. For the first time, the multi-faceted poet, singer and musician takes to the stage alone, boldly reinterpreting the original tracks from the LP and EP (recorded together with Geoff Barrow of Portishead and his band Beak>) as solo works, as well as songs from her slowly building repertoire, giving the political, trashy, dub, punk, funk an edge of sinister dance. Triggering tracks and layers, manipulating live, with a focus on the voice, diverted through varying reverbs and echoes, some sung, some spoken word, with reinterpretations of the first record, mixed in with Exploded View and some tracks completely new. „A haunting performance that plays with different sound textures as well as stretching the capabilities of the voice for a truly dramatic and theatrical effect.“ 01.22.19: Solo Live Set @ The Empty Bottle (Chicago, IL) Tickets 01.23.19: Solo Live Set @ Velvet Underground (Toronto, Canada) Tickets 01.24.19: Solo Live Set @ Zone One @ Elsewhere (Brooklyn, NY) Tickets 01.25.19: Solo Live Set @ Museum of Modern Art Fort Worth (Fort Worth, TX) Tickets 01.26.19: Solo Live Set @ El Cid w/Chasms (Los Angeles, CA) Tickets 01.27.19: Solo Live Set @ Rickshaw Stop (San Francisco, CA) Tickets 01.29.19: Solo Live Set @ Mississippi Studios (Portland, OR) Tickets 01.30.19: Solo Live Set @ The Vera Project (Seattle, WA) Tickets 02.01.19: Solo Live Set @ 529 w/ Where Are We, Nightcleaner + Twins (Atlanta, GA) Tickets

so the truth is, all my lyrics are from the depth of my unconsciousness and music is like a therapy that weasels them out and during the trance, someone presses record. Sometimes the lyrics get a bit personal but by the end of the song, i've worked through the issues that sometimes i was carrying around for years. I am lucky enough to work with extremely talented artists and musicians, that somehow set the perfect environment of trust and letting go, for the mind to open and for the bile to flow. I hope that through sharing this experience, it can help other people shed this stuff that we unnecessarily carry around for years and that eats us up inside. It's better to talk about things then to let things get bitter and for these emotions to turn our hands in different ways. Music has many uses. Don't forget it. And don't forget to talk about things instead of keeping it inside, bottled up and brewing. It turns into viscousness and resentment, which make us do strange things.

Dave Clarke's album comes out today and i'm happy to have recorded a weird and honest track with him for it about the times we live in. How we should not be AFRAID, or stand for the oppression that we get used to, or discriminate against others for being different from ourselves, which we sometimes find scary or don't understand and therefore reject, or believe people who insist that to discriminate will increase our own wealth, or that by cutting off resources and reserving for the few 'truly deserving', we will save ourselves. It is no use stepping on the face of another to reach for air. There is enough for all. This world and its resources belong to everyone. Those that pretend to hold the keys to its wealth or ownership there-over are merely temporary gatekeepers. Wealth is not only determined by gold. Wealth comes in other forms too. Question the norms and speak up when you think something is wrong. It's easy to live just for yourself but it gets a bit lonely and things will run out quickly. All this shall pass, whether it be wealth, happiness, sadness, conflict or misfortune. No one is invincible. Live true. Live as one.
