Brooke Fraser Returning To America

(PR) Brooke Fraser will return to America for another series of dates in support of her latest album, Flags.

The "Something in the Water Tour" will bring Brooke to legendary venues such as Webster Hall in NYC, the Fillmore in San Francisco and The Music Box in Los Angeles.

Prior to the U.S. tour, Brooke will make a prominent showing at SXSW and head to Europe for her first ever tour of the U.K., Ireland, France, Germany and Italy.

Released in October 2010, Flags reached the #1 spot on the New Zealand album chart, #3 in Australia and entered at #59 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts in America. The album has gone Gold in Australia and 3x Platinum in New Zealand. Her first single, "Something in the Water," is a hit at radio around the globe.

Flags is a dreamy, alternative-pop collection that showcases her agile soprano, lilting melodies, and knack for telling her stories through the lives of vibrant characters on songs like "Betty," (co-written with Switchfoot's Jon Foreman and Ben West of Detroit indie duo The Real Efforts of Real People), "Crows and Locusts," "Jack Kerouac," and "Ice on Her Lashes." The album also features a co-written duet with Aqualung's Matt Hales, titled "Who Are We Fooling."

Glide Magazine described Flags as "a wonder. From the stunning lyrical imagery throughout to the impressive guest vocalists who join her (the Cary Brothers, Jon Foreman and Aqualung among them), from Fraser's ethereal and breathy performances to the wide-ranging soundscapes, this record is drenched in beauty and stands as one of the more remarkable achievements of 2010." USA Today called the album "one of this year's happier surprises," Venus Zine said "Sounds Like: Jenny Lewis enjoying a Swell Season," and Women's Wear Daily dubbed her "The Kiwi Norah Jones."
