The multitalented performer spent a good chunk of the summer wowing audiences as the opening act for Depeche Mode on their North American tour and performing at festivals around the country.

Now, she’s about to claim the spotlight for herself. Poe hits the road in Salt Lake City on November 4 and zigzags around the country through early December.

She’s out in support of her album Haunted, which was released last year in conjunction with her brother Mark Danielewski’s book “House Of Leaves.” Both the disc and the book have gone on to earn wide critical acclaim and an enthusiastic cult following.

Poe and Danieleski did a bookstore tour promoting their works, both of which were deeply influenced by the spectre of their father – documentary film maker Tad Danielewski (1962’s “No Exit,” 1965’s “The Guide”) – who died in 1993.

The family artistic streak is clearly evident in Poe’s music. She started writing songs at the age of eight and learned rudimentary production skills with the aid of a four-track recorder while growing up.

While attending Princeton, she honed those skills and put together a group that was part rock band, part spoken word performance art. After college, she signed with Atlantic Records and released her debut, Hello, in 1995.

Originally lumped in with the female singer/songwriters who dominated the charts in the mid-‘90s, Poe has gone on to carve her own genre-defying niche.

Her powerful sound sets her apart from the pack and has landed her on stage with a diverse collection of artists.

Along with the Depeche Mode gig, she’s toured with Lenny Kravitz, Seven Mary Three, Eels, and Better Than Ezra – and had the guts to open two big shows for KISS.
