Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Chaney has announced a run of UK dates in March 2019 in support of her acclaimed album Shelter.
Shelter is a series of teasingly enigmatic meditations leaving a distinct feeling that for all Olivia’s emotional candour there’s a persistent – albeit attractive – unknowability giving an added depth to her increasingly masterful songwriting. David Kidman, Folk Radio
Shelter is the follow up to Chaney’s 2015 Nonesuch debut The Longest River, and was produced by Thomas Bartlett (David Byrne, Magnetic Fields, Sufjan Stevens, The National, St. Vincent, Florence Welch, Father John Misty, et al.). The new album features eight original songs, including ‘IOU’ and ‘Roman Holiday’ (which she recently performed on Later…with Jools Holland, see below), along with Chaney’s interpretations of Henry Purcell’s ‘O Solitude’ and Frank Harford and Tex Ritter’s ‘Long Time Gone’, first recorded by the Everly Brothers.
