Israeli-born, London-based singer songwriter Irit has been announced as the special guest on Lisa Stansfield’s UK tour which comes to The Lowry in April.
The date marks a return to the region for Irit who performed at Band on the Wall in February ahead of the release of her debut album Hello. Hello was released in March 2018, drawing on the culture and sounds of her Middle Eastern upbringing, as well as he classical training and desire to explore musical sounds. Also taking inspiration from the likes of Bjork and Kate Bush, Irit has also leaned heavily on the Latin jazz of Astrid Gilberto and the soul of PJ Harvey.
Speaking about joining Lisa Stansfield on tour, Irit commented that she is “very excited to tour with Lisa Stansfield in the UK. She has been such an influence on British music and is an artist I respect very much. I can’t wait for this amazing adventure and to perform tracks from my new album around the country.”
Lisa Stansfield is touring in support of new 13 track album Deeper. Written by Lisa and her song-writing partner Ian Devaney, produced by Ian & Mark “Snowboy” Cotgrove, and with Lisa taking the role of executive producer, ‘Deeper’ is the iconic soul singer’s eighth studio album. Speaking about the record the Grammy nominated, multi BRIT, Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award winner said “creating this album was a wonderful adventure. I really believe there’s a special something in this record. I’m so excited to let it go out into the big wide world with pride.”
