Statuesque New York singer-songwriter Joan As Police Woman has announced that she will be touring Australia this June in promotion of her new album The Deep Field.
The relatively short eight-date national tour begins in Canberra on June 2 and ends in Perth on June 11.
The Deep Field is the fourth album from Joan As Police Woman – aka Joan Wasser – and was released earlier this year to generally reasonable reviews.
Wasser emerged on the scene with her debut solo album in 2006, entitled Real Life. However, she was a mainstay on the US indie scene throughout the previous decade and was famously Jeff Buckley’s girlfriend – she still refuses to discuss him in interviews. She first came to prominence as a member of Rufus Wainwright‘s touring band, often opening for him also, while she has also toured with Antony & The Johnsons. She last came to Australia in 2008.
The dates are:
Thursday June 2 – The Street Theatre, Canberra ACT
Friday June 3 – Lizotte’s, Newcastle NSW
Saturday June 4 – Judith Wright Centre, Brisbane QLD
Sunday June 4 – Byron Community Centre NSW
Tuesday June 7 – Governor Hindmarsh Hotel, Adelaide SA
Wednesday June 8 – Athenaeum Theatre, Melbourne VIC
Thursday June 9 – Enmore Theatre, Sydney NSW
Saturday June 11 – Fly By Night, Perth WA
