From her press:

25-year-old Malaysian singer songwriter Zee Avi announces fall tour dates in support of her sophomore album ghostbird out through Brushfire and Monotone Records on August 23.The select tour dates kick off at Maxwell’s  in Hoboken, NJ and continue through October 15th concluding at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre. 

With a voice beyond her years, ukulele wielding Avi will be joined by a three-piece band during her 15-date tour. For the first time Avi will bring out the soothingly beautiful Malaysian Sape, a unique string instrument indigenous to her hometown of Borneo. Avi is itching to get back on tour and show off her live skills and perform her new songs.

Ghostbird (the literal translation for owl in Avi’s native language) was born in her Brooklyn kitchen last summer; however it was a trip to the Florida Everglades where Avi found endless inspiration and wrote the album’s first single, “The Book of Morris Johnson,” an upbeat song inspired by the Floridian folk artist.

In the last two years since Avi’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut, Zee Avi (a 2009 Associated Press Top 10 album) her very free spirit has wandered from major music festivals (Outside Lands, Bonnaroo) and concert venues across the country to her homeland of Sarawak, Borneo, where she recently picked up an International Youth Icon Award.  

The show begins at 8p with doors opening at 7p. Tickets are $13 and can be found here.
