The Staves are thrilled to announce a run of live shows in support of their new album ‘Good Woman’, out now on Atlantic Records.
“We’re so excited and thankful to be announcing a UK tour today. It’s been a long old year and we can't WAIT to play music in front of people again! We hope to see all your lovely faces there.”
Good Woman was written and recorded in a time of severe turmoil for the band, seeing the ending of relationships,the death of their beloved mother and the birth of Emily’s first child. Produced by John Congleton, the album stands as a testament to their strength and that of other women, to sisters, mothers and daughters. To love, loss and change. To trying to be a good woman.
