Happy Spring everybody!! I just got back from album launch tours across Western Canada and Ontario, and heading back out for shows in New York and the Northeastern U.S. starting this weekend. Then coast to coast (and back, and forth) for a Spring and Summer packed with festivals and tour dates.
I'm really excited to be supporting Katie Toupin (formerly of Houndmouth) on a handful of dates in Toronto, Boston, Chicago and Indianapolis this month, then touring across Eastern Canada in June with Winnipeg's Raine Hamilton.
Check www.abigaillapell.com/shows for a long (long) list of shows and up-to-date updates -- please spread the word if you know anyone who might be interested! And I can't wait to see some of you out on the road!
In the meantime, here's a new live video of "Halfway to Mexico" -- another road ballad from my new album, GETAWAY -- filmed at our Toronto album launch in February and featuring my dream team of Kelly Lefaive, Dan Fortin, Christine Bougie and Jake Oelrichs. Filmed at the Burdock by Thom Varey / audio by Fedge. Check it out and let me know what you think!
In other news, Getaway has been getting played across Canada on CBC and college/community radio, and recently hit #1 on the folk/roots/blues Earshot chart.
The album also has over TWO MILLION streams (!!) on Spotify as of today.
More exciting news(es) to come soon, so stay tuned and keep in touch. Thanks for reading and, as always, if you'd like me to play a show in your town, come visit your radio show, or talk about some kind of thing, please drop me a line -- I'd love to hear from you!
