In one of the most harmonious of pairings among LA songwriters this summer, psych-pop songstress Juliette Commagere and the wonderful Pete Yorn will be teaming up for a West Coast tour, starting August 20th! Juliette and her multi-piece band, which includes husband and drummer Joachim Cooder, recently returned from a 20-date European tour supporting Ry Cooder and Nick Lowe.
In between tours, Juliette has been spending time in Taos, New Mexico, where she is finishing work on her new album. As she once told the LAist in an interview, “I just [write] and [try] to escape…[the] crazy madness of LA.” Juliette’s as-yet-untitled album and followup to her solo debut Queens Die Proudly (Aeronaut Records), will build on her classical influences and showcase her sense of adventure and willingness to experiment. Juliette worked one of her new songs, “Hold On,” into the set on her European tour, and will be debuting the song in the US for all to hear on this tour.
