Kate Owen Reveals New Dates For 'Not A Proper Girl' Album Release Tour

Chris Cudby / Thursday 20th August, 2020 10:03AM

Released in March just as Aotearoa was moving into our initial lockdown phase, Lyttelton dream-pop songwriter Kate Owen's launch tour for her darkly majestic debut album Not A Proper Girl (which we described as sounding like "old friends drinking away their sorrows and rocking out at 2am, a knowing look between two people who have seen some shit") was frustratingly left up in the air due to the accursed coronavirus. Looking forward to brighter times ahead, Owen has revealed a fresh round of dates to give her accomplished studio record the celebration it deserves, performing in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland this October, with full band featuring Moses Robbins (guitar), Thomas Isbister (drums) and Kurt Preston (bass). Here's the updated tour details...

Press release:

Kate Owen is completing her debut Album tour ‘Not A Proper Girl’ , that was interrupted due to COVID19 in March.

Three dates! Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland with bookings and shows designed to respond to COVID19 restrictions if required.

A singer with a poetic, restrained intensity, Kate Owen has been song-writing for twenty years and performing live for a decade.

‘Not A Proper Girl’, recorded with Ben Edwards (The Sitting Room, Lyttelton), showcases Owen’s songs with rich textures including synth and strings, and strong rhythmic pulses from live kits and drums machines.

The result is an album with a sound that has been likened to PJ Harvey and Julee Cruise (Twin Peaks), with a lyrical style echoing Jeff Buckley.

For this debut album release tour Owen is joined by her band Moses Robbins (guitar), Thomas Isbister (drums) and Kurt Preston (bass).
