Fresh off of an Australian tour and currently showcasing in select cities across Canada, Carmen Townsend has been selected to tour with the groundbreaking rock and roll band Heart. Playing 20 dates coast-to-coast as part of the Heart Comes Home – Canada Tour 2011, Carmen was hand picked by the band themselves in what is shaping up to be one of 2011’s hottest concert tours. And all before the release of her upcoming album Waitin’ and Seein’.
Born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Townsend has been making music her whole life. Both on the album and on stage she immediately strikes a chord on two levels: her live-wire sound is vast, with stretching riffs that build into a fierce sonic motion accompanied by vocals that are earthy and enduring, her voice becomes a powerful instrument all on its own.
Starting in St. John’s, NL and working it’s way to Vancouver, BC the tour marks the 35th anniversary of Heart’s debut record and first coast-to-coast Canadian tour in three decades. With the January 25th release of Waitin’ and Seein’ (Company House/EMI) the timing couldn’t be more perfect for Carmen Townsend to share her talent with the country she calls home.
