NEeMA Launches European Tour

Album produced with Leonard Cohen and Pierre Marchand

Includes Headline Dates and Support for Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, Cyndi Lauper and Elton John

Fresh from the recent U.S. release of her second album Watching You Think, Montreal based singer/songwriter NEeMA has announced a European tour, beginning June 10th at Schlossplatz in Stuttgart, Germany.

In addition to her series of headlining club dates at intimate venues across the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Sweden and more, NEeMA has also received backing from Jeff Beck, Joe Cocker, Cyndi Lauper and Elton John to support them at select tour dates across the continent.

A protégé of Leonard Cohen, who co-produced the album with Pierre Marchand (Rufus Wainwright, Ron Sexsmith), NEeMA follows in the tradition of singer/songwriters from Joni Mitchell to Judee Sill and Laura Nyro. She is a much-travelled troubadour, with a poetic soul and charisma that has seen rave reviews in her native Canada and feted by the likes of The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, and Paste Magazine in the US.

Tickets for select tour dates will go on sale to the public from Friday May 6th for the UK dates and can be purchased through www.aeglive.co.uk. Fans should visit http://www.neema.ca/ for updated tour and on-sale information.
