Beloved balladeer James Blunt welcomes special guest The Verses, fronted by the exceptional Ella and Jesse Hooper, to his May tour.

Following a very successful career in the early 2000s as founders of multi-platinum and ARIA winning pop-rock sensation Killing Heidi, brother and sister duo Ella and Jesse returned to the music scene in 2009 as The Verses with a brand new sound.

The Verses debut album Seasons (out now through Warner) is a collection of warm roots rock and alt-country and thought to embody “the cool exuberance of Tom Petty, the crisp air of Nashville (and) the subtle folk-rock embellishments of The Faces” amongst other influences.

The Verses, says Ella, is “a totally different thing. It’s such an evolution that I feel like another person entirely.” The band is thrilled to join James Blunt on his national tour this May and look forward to sharing their new music with audiences across the country.

The multi-award winning James Blunt has won hearts all across the globe with his live performances and hit singles including ‘Goodbye My Lover’, ‘You’re Beautiful’ and ‘1979’. His charm and talent has earned him multitudes of fans both here and abroad, a number that has further grown since the release of his latest album Some Kind Of Trouble (Warner).

Treat yourself to a night out with James Blunt and The Verses but hurry, tickets are selling fast.
