Freya Beer will headline at Manchester’s The Castle in November in a full band show following a run of dates supporting Honeyblood.

The UK dates come after Freya Beer made her US debut with a full-band show in New York, and following a string of dates over the summer including Latitude Festival.

The singer-songwriter draws inspiration from art, literature, alternative fashion and music, embracing a gothic soul and devil-may-care spirit.

Having sparked a wave of attention from the get-go with her self-released debut single Bike Boy and follow-up Six Months in 2018, Freya earned a BBC Introducing Live Lounge Session and a feature on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 Music show — and so the roller coaster began.

With the wind in her sails, Freya launched her own label Sisterhood Records in 2019 as a vehicle to further her creativity. In 2020, she released the single Dear Sweet Rosie with the track drumming up further support from BBC 6 Music as well as a live session on Marc Riley’s show (which was then highlighted as one of his “Best of the Year” that December).  Widespread media and taste-picked support also followed.

Revealing her many shades with a series of exquisite lockdown cover versions, Freya bookended 2020 with the acclaimed single Arms Open Wide, which was placed in PRS for Music’s Top 20 songs of the year. Discovering new audiences and in-turn more about herself as an artist, Freya released her debut album Beast in October 2021 to unanimous fanfare.
