The Wayward Tour, plus more news

In May 2013, a year on from when Wayward Daughter was first published, Eliza will take to the road in a joint headline tour with Jim Moray, entitled The Wayward Daughter Tour.

Celebrating Eliza's 21 years and Jim's 10 as professional touring musicians, the duo will be joined by an all-star cast featuring  Barnaby Stradling, Beth Porter, Lucy Farrell, Dave Delarre, Saul Rose and Sam Sweeney. Dates will soon be published, so check back here for more news.

And to accompany the tour, Soundcheck Books will release the electronic version of the book, complete with a new chapter about what's happened to Eliza in the last year (so I best get scribbling!) Eliza will also be releasing a double CD Best Of album, also entitled Wayward Daughter, on her label, HemHem. I must admit that I've had a sneak preview of the album and it's absolutely brilliant: it showcases tracks from all of Eliza's incarnations over the years, including live and rare tracks that some may not be aware of.
