She sings like her throat's been tarmaced by the pollution of the world but flowers and fields of hope have grown through... that's what makes TRACY CHAPMAN the crossover, modern day Marley, established star that she is... she's touring soon y'know!
The first night at the Albert Hall is already sold out. The tour, titled The Let It Rain Tour, is in support of Mrs.Chapman's sixth album, 'Let It Rain', funnily enough. The album was out on October 21st and was produced by Pj Harvey's partner in crime and star in his own right John Parish and features Joey Waronker (REM, Smashing Pumpkins) on drums and Joe Gore (Tom Waits, PJ Harvey) on guitar.
