TOUR DATES BEGIN AUGUST 25
“one of the great triumphs—Canadian or otherwise—of the year.” - The Georgia Straight
"Canadian troubadour Andy Shauf is a find." - The Guardian
“The Party charms and troubles, playing like the soundtrack to a particularly devastating film noir. …simply marvellous.” - 9/10 Exclaim!
“it’s a baroque-pop exercise with echoes of Seventies smarties like Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman and Steely Dan, though rather more empathetic than them.” - The Independent, UK
Today, Andy Shauf announces his return to the stage for a string of dates in North America and Europe this fall.
Shauf will play songs from his extensive catalogue and debut new material in solo acoustic performances at intimate venues across North America. Stops include Ottawa, Victoria, Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal.
As announced previously, Shauf will perform with a full band at Canadian festivals including CityFolk (Ottawa), Rifflandia (Victoria), and Westward (Vancouver), and in Europe along with headline dates in London, Paris, Hamburg, and Berlin.
Andy has spent most of 2018 working in the studio on the follow-up to the Polaris Music Prize and triple JUNO Award nominated album The Party (Arts & Crafts). That album cycle saw Shauf and band tour extensively throughout North America, culminating in a sold out, 10-piece band Massey Hall performance to over 2,750 fans in Toronto last November. Video from that memorable night was released last week.
Tickets for all shows go on sale to the public June 22 at 10am Eastern; ticket links available via andyshauf.com.

MORE PRAISE FOR THE PARTY
“both beautiful and beautifully troubling – understated, imaginative chamber pop.” - Irish Times
“The Party has placed the Regina-reared musician among the country’s top
songwriting talents” - Victoria Times Colonist
“Shauf can locate the game-changing chord that great songs pivot on, for which lesser talents fumble in vain. The Party conceals killer lyrics in music of extraordinary beauty
and lushness.” - The Sunday Times (UK)
“one of the single most promising voices to emerge from Canada
in recent memory.” - Flood Magazine
