By Andy Malt | Published on Friday 21 April 2017
Tei Shi has announced that she will embark on a UK tour in June, following the recent release of her debut album ‘Crawl Space’.
Describing her ethos as an artist, she says: “Earlier in my career, I hid because I wanted first and foremost to be seen as a creative person making music. I thought that if I presented myself as a singer people wouldn’t get that I write, that I produce too”.
“People have this idea that you can only check some of the proverbial boxes as a creative woman”, she continues. “That you can’t be attractive and sexual and a great singer and a solid performer and a great writer and be in control of your creative space, as if some of those are mutually exclusive for a human woman. My ambition is to represent all of those without having to sacrifice one for the other”.
Here are those tour dates:
17 Jun: Brighton, Patterns
18 Jun: Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
19 Jun: Manchester, The Deaf Institute
20 Jun: London, Islington Assembly Hall
