DUE to extended recording commitments, Janet Devlin’s debut UK/Irish headline tour has been rescheduled, and will now commence this September in England.
This week, offering her apologies for any inconvenience caused, the Gortin singer says the upside is that when the tour eventually begins, those attending should be intimately familiar with the new album.
“I wanted to let you know that my debut headline UK tour has been rescheduled to later this year,” she remarked. “I’m so sorry for this, but I hope you can understand why this decision has been made. I need the next few months to fully concentrate on the recording sessions for my debut album, which officially started last week.
“It is very important to me that when the tour takes place, all the fans know all the songs from my debut album, and to make sure, I can make this the best show possible!
“I know you are all going to love it! We have some amazing tracks for you to hear!”
Following her string of steller performances in 2011’s X Factor, Janet has spent a lot of time writing and crafting new songs with the Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer Eliot Kennedy and his team.
More recently, heavily influenced by alternative artists such as City and Colour and Devendra Banhart, Janet has been co-writing new tracks for her debut with Internationally acclaimed writers including Newton Faulkner, Joshua Radin and Jack Savoretti.
“Once again, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your continued and loyal support,” she continued. “I look forward to seeing you all out on the road! Look out for a few select shows, together with TV and radio appearances for the new single later this spring. This will then be followed by festival appearances this summer.”
The Tyrone singer’s Irish leg of the forthcoming tour begins in Cork on October 1. The Belfast gig brings the tour to an end at the Oh Yeah Music Centre on October 5.
