Dance music supergroup Above & Beyond have today revealed the vocalists who will join them on their upcoming ‘Acoustic’ tour of the world’s most iconic concert halls. In addition, the trio have added another feather to their cap by selling out the world-famous, 18,000-capacity Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA, as part of tour.
The first two names will be very familiar to Above & Beyond fans: Zoē Johnston, long-time collaborator with the band and co-writer of the Grammy nominated ‘We’re All We Need’; and Justine Suissa, the much-loved voice of OceanLab, with whom the group released the “Sirens Of The Sea” LP in 2008.
With Justine Suissa making her acoustic debut and Johnston one of the stars of Above & Beyond’s previous acoustic run in 2013, the return of these two fan favourites is sure to heighten anticipation for the shows. Fans will also be intrigued to hear the two new vocal talents that Above & Beyond’s Jono, Tony and Paavo have lined up for the tour, which also includes stops at the Wang in Boston, the Beacon Theatre in NYC and Honolulu’s Waikiki Shell.
The first new addition is Cobi, a singer-songwriter born in the northern most part of Minnesota. Cobi’s voice travels from low valleys to high peaks while his guitar is the heartstring of his powerful live performances. Possessing story-telling qualities reminiscent of the 70s, Cobi’s single “Darker Than Dawn” is moving audiences, and quickly becoming one of the most anticipated songs of the summer. With musical influences that cross genres and generations, his songwriting style has been described as “Neil Young meets Miike Snow.”
Also joining the tour is Natalie Holmes, a UK singer/songwriter with a delicate and angelic voice who draws her influences from artists such as Ellie Goulding, Sara Bareilles, Bon Iver, Gabrielle Aplin (who she recently supported at Leeds O2 Academy).
