Here is the official press release and tour dates:
New York, NY – Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Kina Grannis has announced dates for the first leg of her “World In Front Of Me” North American tour, beginning on April 2 at Chicago’s Lincoln Hall and concluding at the House of Blues in Dallas on April 30th. This tour coincides with the April 5th release of a remixed and remastered version of her debut album Stairwells. The album also has 4 entirely new tracks. The original release of Stairwells debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and reached #5 on iTunes Pop Chart.
Kina spent 2010 headlining shows throughout North America, selling out venues including Los Angeles’ Troubadour and El Rey Theater and New York City’s Highline Ballroom and was featured on 2010’s Lilith Fair, where she appeared alongside music legends Mary J. Blige and Sarah McLachlan.
In addition to finding success as a touring artist, Kina has maintained an enormous digital presence, where she remains one of YouTube’s most subscribed-to musicians with more than 275,000 subscribers. Her official video for single “Valentine” has surpassed 5.3-million views and her videos, cumulatively, have eclipsed 55-million views. Her music has been described as “lovelorn acoustic guitar pop” by Time Out and Kina has been tabbed as a “rising star” by CosmoGirl.
The redux version Stairwells, will be available in both standard and deluxe formats via One Haven Music. The former will include four brand new songs – “Gone,” “It’s Love,” “The One You Say Goodnight To,” and “Without Me” – as well as refreshed versions of fan favorites “Valentine,” “Message From Your Heart,” and select tracks from the original Stairwells. The deluxe version will additionally include the remainder of the songs from the original album (also remixed and remastered), plus three studio-recorded versions of songs covered on Kina’s YouTube channel, the official music video for “Valentine,” and 3 exclusive videos – “Stairwells Sessions” – that were recorded in a vacant downtown Los Angeles stairwell, an homage to her album title and preferred songwriting locale.
