Red-hot, tastemaker music management agency The Working Group has announced its very first tour which will offer music fans a live sampling of some of the brightest young, indie-minded artists on the scene.
The Love Is All Around Us Tour will feature the acoustic indie pop of Seattle, WA based headliner The Scene Aesthetic, with support from Tacoma, WA pop duo He Is We, Joplin, MO singer-songwriter Carter Hulsey and Plug in Stereo, the alter-ego of 17-year-old Portland, OR based multi-instrumentalist Trevor Dahl. Special guests will also be making appearances on select dates.
The Scene Aesthetic will be out in support of a brand new deluxe edition of their recent Brother release. The new expanded version, titled Brother + Sister, will feature 6 new songs and will be available nationwide on March 1. Smartpunk.com will be exclusively offering Brother + Sister as a special bundle, packaged with extra goodies which will be announced soon.
He is We will be touring behind their latest release My Forever. Debuting at #3 on iTunes’s Pop Album Chart and #6 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Chart, My Forever (Universal Motown) was released digitally in late 2010 and has been winning accolades in media from Alternative Press (“big enough for live sing-alongs and sweet enough for to soundtrack next year’s prom”) to AbsolutePunk (“For just a debut record, My Forever has set He Is We up for greatness”) to About.com (“If you love sweet, straightforward, melodic pop music, you owe it to yourself to listen to He Is We”). The single “Happily Ever After” impacts AAA radio this month.
Carter Hulsey’s A Note In Your Pocket is available now. Plug in Stereo’s debut full length Nothing To Something will be out this spring. He is touring in support of the recently released Plans EP.
Peta2 will be hosting the official tour blog for the Love Is All Around Us Tour featuring exclusive content from all of the bands. More info about the tour blog will follow.
New York-based The Working Group currently represents the chart-topping acts The Ready Set, Never Shout Never, and Hellogoodbye, as well as much buzzed about developing artists like Cady Groves, EATMEWHILEIMHOT! and Weatherstar, plus a growing stable of in demand producers and songwriters.
