GETAWAY OUT NOW VIA COAX RECORDS / OUTSIDE
SUMMER TOUR DATES CONTINUE JULY 12
“’Getaway’ is far and away a confident and poised collection of road-weary ballads and impeccable songwriting.” Dominionated
“’Getaway’ pushes at the bounds of what Lapell has achieved so far. Drawing horns, harmonica, and even an accordion together, the soundscapes paint pictures of their own, composing the feelings of the spaces they were created in.” Exclaim!

A few months ago, Abigail Lapell took to road supporting her recent album Getaway, beginning a string of tour dates that spans from coast to coast and spring to fall. Today, the celebrated songwriter is adding more dates to her already busy summer plans. Full tour dates can be found below.
Lapell is also sharing the new video for “Gonna Be Leaving”, captured by Southern Souls and featuring some of the amazing players who appeared on the album; Dan Fortin (Bernice) on bass, Jake Oelrichs (Run With Kittens) on drums, Dana Sipos vocals, and Lisa Bozikovic (piano, vocals).
Recently, Lapell was also nominated as one of three finalists for No Depression’s Singer-Songwriter of The Year award.

Out now on Coax Records / Outside, Getaway has spent several weeks on the !earshot Folk/Roots/Blues Chart, topping out at #1.
Since the release of 2017’s Hide Nor Hair, which won her Contemporary Album Of The Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Lapell has been on the road, touring across Canada, the U.S. and Europe, and playing at festivals like Pop Montreal, Mariposa, In The Dead Of Winter, Tiny Lights, and Folk On The Rocks.
