NASHVILLE, Tenn., (June 1, 2022) – Grammy-nominated, boldly vulnerable singer-songwriter/producer Garrison Starr will be hitting the road this June, kicking her tour off in Evanston, Illinois at the intimate concert hall Evanston SPACE on June 8. Starr will be celebrating 25 years of her beloved major-label debut, Eighteen Over Me. Joining her on these dates will be Americana singer-songwriter Meg Toohey, whose 2020 solo album, Butch, received critical acclaim from industry tastemakers and peers alike.
Starr has earned accolades, critical acclaim, and touched many lives with her poetic poignancy throughout her career. Highlights in her two milestone-laden decades in music include a Grammy nod for producing comedian Margaret Cho’s album American Myth; prime sync placements on massive TV hits including Grey’s Anatomy and Pretty Little Liars, and in movies such as The Secret and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood; and tours with Lilith Fair, Patty Griffin, Melissa Etheridge, Steve Earle, Mary Chapin Carpenter and more. Starr has been hailed as “Lucinda Williams for Gen X’ers” by NPR and lauded by MSNBC for her “gorgeous, full, rough, passionate voice that can be ultimately pensive, intimate, hurt, consoling, libidinous, or scornful — sometimes during the same verse.” The LA-based artist now has an 8-album body of work that explores her journey in self-love, forgiveness, and self-discovery.
Singer-songwriter Meg Toohey is as well versed in Americana music as she is in moody pop-rock. Toohey’s roots-pop recalls classic songwriters such as Bonnie Raitt, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Springsteen. Her recent outpouring of music includes her album Butch, her single “Lucky Streak” (a tribute to a fallen friend), and the upcoming album, All I Know. Toohey is a lifelong musician with a vibrantly eclectic career.
