CRAIG STICKLAND ANNOUNCES FALL CANADIAN TOUR
DATES FROM COAST TO COAST WITH TYLER SHAW
NEW SINGLE BREAK EVERY RULE OUT NOW
Toronto, ON – September 19, 2019 – Canadian singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Craig Stickland, will be coming home to Canadian soil this fall! After spending time in Alessia Cara’s touring ensemble and opening for the fellow Canadian songstress across the globe; supporting everyone from JoJo to Barns Courtney; and most recently, touring with Tom Walker, Craig is thrilled to be heading back to his home country to tour with Tyler Shaw. Kicking off on October 15th in Calgary, the 20-date run will take Craig from coast-to-coast through the fall. See below for full details.
Craig has been making a splash south of the border, with over half of his 1M+ streams coming from his rapidly growing American fanbase. His tracks have earned key placements on Apple Music’s Today’s Acoustic stream and Spotify’s Contemporary Blend & Mellow Favourites, and he has garnered praise from critics internationally, with Baeble Music exclaiming, “Craig Stickland has one of those rare voices that stops you and speaks directly to your soul.” His latest release, Break Every Rule, was dubbed “an absolutely gorgeous, harmony-laden track” by Parade, and perfectly showcases Craig’s mesmerizing vocal range and raw lyrical songwriting. Have a listen to the single here and watch the video for the beautifully stripped-down Van Session here.
Break Every Rule follows the heart wrenching, Stop At Nothing, the guitar driven anthem, Burn It Down, and the mesmerizing ballad, Rolling River. It marks the fourth release off Craig’s upcoming album, Starlit Afternoon, giving fans a taste of what’s to come. Written throughout a whirlwind tour in a self-converted sustainable Sprinter Van, he co-produced the album, alongside Cat Lewis and Gray Hawken (Locals Only Sound), in Los Angeles during 2018. He Airbnb’d his apartment, slept in his van outside the studio, and architected a 12-track opus, fusing blues, soul, rock, folk, gospel, and alternative.
Stay tuned for more to come from this talented man-of-all-trades and don’t miss his captivating live show as he tours this fall!
