Past Tours

Hot 8 Brass Band | On The Spot Tour | March 2017

New Orleans’ Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band accompanied the release of their fifth album, ‘On The Spot’ (due late March, via Tru Thoughts), with an extensive tour including their biggest London headline yet at The Roundhouse as well as key spots across Europe, Australasia and North America.

 

Transcending genres and trends, Hot 8 have performed and collaborated with artists from Lauryn Hill to Mos Def to the Blind Boys of Alabama, and were nominated for a Grammy in 2013 for their second album ‘The Life and Times Of…’. 2015’s acclaimed ‘Vicennial…’ exemplified their ability to honour their city’s musical traditions while forging their own powerful legacy – a story that continues apace via the ‘On The Spot’ album and tour.

Akala | 10 Years of Akala Tour | December 2016
Akala

Every so often an artist stands out of the pack and brings something to the industry that is truly unique but at the same time, honest and unforced.

BAFTA and MOBO Award-winning hip hop artist, writer and historian AKALA is one such artist. Today, PS Music Group and Call & Response are proud to announce the ’10 Years Of Akala’ tour. Culminating a decades worth of work of the true social warrior, the iconic and outspoken UK stalwart is to bring his unique and praised performances to Australian and New Zealand shores this coming December.

Inspired by the likes of Saul Williams and Gil Scot-Heron, Akala’s performances have gained the reputation of one of the most dynamic and moving in the world. With a conscious approach to his craft, Akala will take us on a journey of his works spanning his impressive career…sometimes fiery and emotive and at other times sombre and confronting.

Having spent time touring with the likes of Jay-Z, Nas, M.I.A. and Christina Aguilera to name a few, these intimate and personalized shows will be one for the story books and will be sure to sell out.

Frazey Ford | Australian Tour | March/April 2016
Frazey Ford

Following on from a huge year of international touring in 2015 after the successful release of her record Indian Ocean, Canada’s Frazey Ford and her band The Quiet Revolution will be gracing Australian soils for Bluesfest in March 2016 and playing a run of sideshows in Sydney Melbourne & Adelaide.

Though her latest critically-lauded album Indian Ocean came out late 2014, the former Be Good Tanyas vocalist recently caught the viral attention of everyone from NPR Music to Buzzfeed to Rhythms Magazine Australia with her feisty music video for stand-out album track “Done”, which not only showcased her dance moves and sassy strut, but also Frazey’s fabulous jumpsuit collection.

“Frazey Ford lets fly on her latest single ‘Done’. Lifted from her second solo album, Indian Ocean, ‘Done’ is a breakup song with attitude. And Ford has made a film clip to match.” – Rhythms Magazine (AUS)
