With Olivia Dean’s debut album Messy, released earlier this summer, we gain a refreshingly textured snapshot of a young woman embracing the beauty in freedom and acceptance: of life, of love, of mess. On it Olivia’s signature soul-bearing lyricism joins forces with some of her most expansive and varied production to date, all bolstered by a newfound determination to defy any categorization except her own.
Following this year´s debut in Germany with a sold-out show in Berlin and a few festival shows (Apple Tree Garden, Dockville...), Olivia will bring her tour to Cologne´s Stadthalle this coming May.
