Award-winning UK singer-songwriter Kate Nash, who was recently named Best British Female at the BRITS Awards, is mounting her first North American tour this spring.
The NME Tour Awards kicks off April 15 in Atlanta, GA and winds down May 13 in San Francisco. Ticket demand has already resulted in a second show at New York’s Webster Hall April 24, after the first show went clean in record time. Nash will also make a concert stop at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival on April 26.
The 20-year-old Nash released her debut album, “Made of Bricks,” in the States earlier this year to rave reviews and played a handful of dates in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Her Myspace page received a boost from fellow Brit Lilly Allen, who placed Nash in her Top 8, according to Wikipedia.org.
The NME Awards Tour is the third NME tour to hit the States, following outings featuring Kaiser Chiefs and The Hold Steady.
