Aussie songstress Julia Stone is inviting her fans to pull up a pew, as she hits the road in February as the first artist to grace the stages of some of the country’s most beautiful places of worship as part of the Heavenly Sounds series for 2013.
“Always on tours when booked to play in an old church, which happens fairly frequently through Europe where many old churches now are converted into venues, we all get excited about the night,” said Julia in a statement. “The room has a way of taking music and transforming it into something else – the walls carry the voices and the sounds – it’s as though the building itself were a part of the sound… adding its own voice to the songs.”
Kicking off at Sydney’s St.Stephen’s Uniting Church on Valentine’s Day, Julia will perform in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart as part of the run of dates, playing tracks from her recent album ‘By The Horns’, along with a collection of previous fan favourites.
Joining Julia in support role is Melbourne indie popster Vance Joy.
