With recent album Invitation out now via Western Vinyl, Heather Woods Broderick has announced a European tour this year, which includes a gig at Glasgow’s Hug and Pint. Since the release Heather has been touring extensively, both as part of Sharon Van Etten’s band and also playing various headline shows including Rough Trade East in London in 2019 and from the reviews I would advise you all get yourself to the West End Glasgow venue. The Fountain caught up with Heather to discuss her plans for 2020.
TF: You had a new album out last year, Invitation, what has the reception been to this?
We’ve gotten some really great feedback for the record from fans and critics which has been exciting and encouraging. It’s felt like this record has reached new people, as well as connecting with fans of previous records. My trio and I were also able to get out and support the record with some touring which was exciting, and it was really nice to meet people who have connected with the record.
TF: And how would you sum up the record in one sentence?
A collection of ethereal dream pop songs written from my personal experience of recent change and acceptance that conjure the sights and smells of a beautiful and remote Oregon coastline.
TF: What else is on the cards for Heather Woods Broderick, can we expect a gig in Scotland soon?
I’ll be bringing my trio out on the road from Feb 19 – Mar 13 for a European tour. We’ll be in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, France, and the UK – including a gig in Glasgow at the Hug and Pint on February 29th!
TF: And how do you find the Glasgow crowd?
Always very gregarious 🙂
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
I opened for Lisa Hannigan solo in 2016, and the show at FLOW in Paris was really memorable. There was a special vibe in the room that night.
