Jennifer Hanson opens for Phil Vassar
Thursday, January 10, 2008
– Jennifer Hanson will join label-mate Phil Vassar in a multi-city acoustic tour, kicking off Jan. 12 in Prescott, Ariz, and running through the end of February.
Hanson will play songs she has recorded ("Beautiful Goodbye," "Joyride") as well as hit songs she wrote for other artists, including "Leave the Pieces" and "A Different World." She will also perform her soon to be released second single, "73," a song from her upcoming Universal Records South CD Release.
"This tour is going to be something unique for the music fans who join us," Hanson said. "When it's just you and a couple of guitars up there on stage, you feel very vulnerable, but at the same time very connected to the audience. It's almost as if they are sitting there with you as you create a song, and they're getting to hear it in its rawest form, before you go into the studio and add all of the other instruments and voices. This connection and interaction is what makes theater tours so special."
