NEeMA Announces UK & European Tour Dates & Ticket Details

Fresh from the recent U.S. release of her second album Watching You Think, Montreal based singer/songwriter NEeMA has announced a European tour, beginning June 10th at Schlossplatz in Stuttgart, Germany.
In addition to her series of headlining club dates at intimate venues across the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Sweden and more, NEeMA has also received backing from Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, Cyndi Lauper and Elton John to support them at select tour dates across the continent.

ImageA protιgι of Leonard Cohen, who co-produced the album with Pierre Marchand (Rufus Wainwright, Ron Sexsmith), NEeMA follows in the tradition of singer/songwriters from Joni Mitchell to Judee Sill and Laura Nyro. She is a much-travelled troubadour, with a poetic soul and charisma that has seen rave reviews in her native Canada and feted by the likes of The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and Paste Magazine in the US.

Leonard Cohen is more than just a co-producer of Watching You Think; he is a musical mentor and fan of NEeMA’s. Of NEeMA’s work, he has said, "in the midst of all the static, a voice of true feeling arises - a rare event!" The legendary musician/poet/artist also drew the haunting portrait of NEeMA, which serves as the album’s cover.

Like Cohen, NEeMA surrounds herself with only the best musicians and the songs on Watching You Think are expertly fleshed out by some of Montreal's finest: Howard Bilerman and Tim Kingsbury of alternative hitmakers Arcade Fire; Tom Mennier, who has performed with Martha and Rufus Wainwright; Gurpreet Chana, who recorded with Nelly Furtado; Joe Grass and Miles Perkin, who accompanied award-winning singer Lhasa de Sela; and Haig V, who co-produced Bran Van 3000's album Glee.

The album features 13 folk-pop gems including the lead single “Escape”, a poignant re-imagining of the Dire Straits classic “Romeo and Juliet” and a new version of her deeply moving musical prayer, “Masi 2010”.
