My, my, my: Delilah to follow debut album with autumn 2012 tour
Posted: 21st June 2012
The singer-songwriter will release From the Roots Up at the end of next month and will tour in October - tickets on sale tomorrow
Paloma Ayana, aka Delilah, has a rich musical and multi-cultural heritage. Music is in her blood; her stepfather was a DJ at superclub the Ministry of Sound and her mother was involved with the MOBOs. From these roots, she has quietly flourished, firstly as a vocalist for Chase and Status (on their hit Time) and now as an artist in her own right.
Having released a clutch of catchy singles to date and recently supported the likes of Maverick Sabre, Delilah is now bringing her thoroughbred musical pedigree to the fore with the release of her debut album on 30th July called, fittingly enough, From the Roots Up. The new material comes amid a rush of festival gigs and ahead of a big tour of the UK in the autumn.
The tour kicks off in Leicester on 20th October, followed by shows in Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and more, before the final date at the Bristol Academy on 29th October 2012. The London gig is at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 28th October. We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 22nd June, priced £16.50 for London and £12.50 for all other locations.
Ahead of the autumn tour, Delilah has a busy summer of festival appearances lined up including slots at Wireless, Relentless Boardmasters 2012 and the Sundown Festival in Norwich. We have a selection of tickets (just Premiums for Wireless) available now; see below.
