Carina Round, local troubadour relocated to LA comes home tonight to headline a rare hometown show at Birmingham’s Hare & Hounds venue in King’s Heath. The intimate show forms one of a number of UK shows in support of her acclaimed recent album ‘Tigermending’ released here a few weeks ago.
Round has developed her own path in music with her inimitable voice and stirringly varied compositions. Her uncompromising vision and thrilling versatility has garnered an immensely passionate fan base including a myriad of highly regarded musicians. Her latest album, ‘Tigermending’ was produced by Grammy nominated writer Dan Burns, and includes collaborations with the legendary Dave Stewart, Brian Eno, and Smashing Pumpkins’ front man Billy Corgan.
Making her home in the creative circus of Los Angles surrounded by a supportive community of fantastic musicians, artists, videographers and a string of other collaborators, has led Carina to work with some of her favourite artists old and new and opened up many new roads of expression. She has had the time and freedom to experiment and explore and created yet another beautiful record in ‘Tigermending’, without the pressure or constraints of a label. Every song in its own way is speaking of really different things. There’s guitar ragers, acoustic beauties, electronic epics, dashes of prog and all the good stuff in between, yet there’s still a strong backbone running throughout the whole record.
The final dates of Carina’s UK tour are:
3rd Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
4th The Joiners, Southampton

Carina last played the venue in July last year after a break of a couple of years. You can read a review of that show in Issue 11. Support will come from Venkman and Dan Whitehouse. Tickets priced £10 are still available but be quick!
