Rumer Touring Is No Rumor

British songstress Rumer arrives in the U.S. for a short cross-country excursion that includes stops in Nashville, New York, Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles.  Many shows go on sale this week.

Proclaimed to be the “heir to Dusty Springfield and Karen Carpenter” by Q Magazine, Rumer is touring in support of her second album of original material, 2014’s Into Colour.  The disc features Rumer sharing writing credits with musician/producer Rob Shirakbari, singer/songwriter Stephen Bishop, multi-instrumentalist Rick Nowels and singer/songwriter Sophie Delila.  Below is the video for “You Just Don’t Know People,” one of the 11 songs from Into Colour.

The album also features the rhythm section from Daryl Hall’s band.  Rumer has a connection with Hall, having appeared on “Live From Daryl’s House” where she performed the Hall & Oates’ classic, “I Can’t Go For That.”

Following an extensive U.K. and European outing, the run across the continent is mostly limited to shows on the East and West coasts with the exception of a stop in Chicago.  Here’s the schedule:
