HEADS OUT ON “PERFECTLY IMPERFECT TOUR” FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF HER HIGHLY ACCLAIMED DEBUT ALBUM!
New York, NY (August 30, 2012) – Singer-songwriter, ELLE VARNER, will hit the road with a series of cross country tour stops following the release and ravenous embrace of her debut album PERFECTLY IMPERFECT! After a captivating performance at this year’s BET awards and commanding the attention of music critics during a recent sold out performance at New York’s Highline Ballroom, Varner will satiate fans with shows during her “PERFECTLY IMPERFECT TOUR” in multiple cities including Washington D.C., Atlanta, New York and San Francisco, where the tour kicks off on September 2nd.
Racing to the top of charts and debuting at #2 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart, Varner’s PERFECTLY IMPERFECT garnered the respect of the industry’s toughest critics with the Associated Press calling it “pure excellence,” the Washington Post describing it as a “pretty spectacular debut,” and The New York Times dubbing the R&B darling “a force of nature”.
The quirky New York University (NYU) graduate’s follow up single to the vocally bold “Refill” is “I Don’t Care,” a song MTV Buzzworthy describes as “a slow jam at its finest.” The video was recently shot in New York City and will impact before the end of the summer.
