Singer-songwriter Alessi Laurent-Marke, otherwise known as Alessi’s Ark, has announced a UK tour to coincide with the release of her sophomore album Time Travel, which will be released on 25th April courtesy of Bella Union.
Alessi, despite being just 20 years old, has already made a name for herself on the London folk-pop circuit touring with the likes of Laura Marling, Mumford & Sons and Brighton cult favourites the Willkommen Collective. Even younger than that, as a 17 year-old she recorded her debut album with members of Bright Eyes. She certainly has a magnificent musical CV so far.
She kicks off her tour at the Jericho Tavern here in Oxford on Wednesday 18th May with further dates in the following cities:Wednesday 18 May – OXFORD – Jericho Tavern (£8)
Thursday 19 May – CAMBRIDGE – The Haymakers (£7)
