April Smith & The Great Picture Show will support Langhorne Slim's January 2010 U.S. tour, kicking off in Hoboken, New Jersey, on January 21. The 17-date run includes dates in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Los Angeles, Denver and other markets before concluding in Columbus, Ohio, on February 13 -- just ten days before the release of Smith's new album, "Songs For A Sinking Ship". See below for a list of tour dates.

April Smith & The Great Picture Show will self-release their new album "Songs For A Sinking Ship" on February 23. Smith and her band are riding a wave of critical acclaim, including the RollingStone.com proclamation, "It's possible you haven't heard much about April Smith, but all that is about to change." The 11-track album was produced by Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jenny Owen Youngs).

April Smith & The Great Picture Show play sassy pop music informed by the '30s and '40s, juke joints and cabaret, the Andrews Sisters and Tom Waits. Smith supported a national tour by singer and Eagles/Linda Ronstadt songwriter J.D. Souther in 2008 and played Lollapalooza 2009, in addition to appearing on an episode of the syndicated TV show Fearless Music and recording sessions for New York radio stations WRXP-FM and WFUV-FM -- all as an unsigned artist with (at the time) no current album. In the summer of 2009, Smith sought to raise $10,000 to record and release "Songs For A Sinking Ship" from her fans via Kickstarter.com, a fundraising site for artists and creators. In the two months allotted for the campaign, Smith exceeded her goal, eventually earning more than $13,000 in pledges.

Smith and her band rang in 2010 by sharing the stage with Amanda Palmer and the Boston Pops at Boston's Symphony Hall. They will follow the album release with a performance at the annual SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas, in March.
