ANGUS AND JULIA STONE CONFIRMED FOR KCRW’S OFFICIAL SXSW SHOWCASE BAND TO OPEN FOR BRETT DENNEN ON WEST COAST TOUR

NORTH AMERICAN DEBUT A BOOK LIKE THIS OUT MARCH 3

“[A Book Like This] flickers with the prospects of two talented musicians who work together wonderfully…the two maintain individual identities despite the close collaboration, and as much as one voice differs from the other — hers, a worthy and eccentric amalgamation of Newsom and Bjork, and his, a lasting crisp and clear spark — in the moments they meld together, it’s easy to forget everything you know about sibling rivalry.” – Filter Magazine

February 17, 2009 (New York, NY) – Aussie brother/sister duo ANGUS AND JULIA STONE will make their SXSW debut next month as part KCRW’s Official Showcase on Wednesday, March 18; other bands on the bill include Ida Maria, School of Seven Bells and Port O’Brien. The Platinum selling pair will also appear on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on Monday, March 9 in celebration of their North American debut album A BOOK LIKE THIS, out March 3.

Paste Magazine recently included Angus and Julia in their “10 New Artists To Watch in 2009” round-up, saying, “[Angus and Julia Stone] make a compelling pair…Together, they’ve crafted A Book Like This, an album of delicately constructed folk songs, some lushly orchestrated (the absolutely gorgeous ‘Silver Coin’), others with twinges of jazz (on ‘Private Lawns’).”

The duo has also become known for their intimate, charming and bewitching live show, selling out headline dates from Australia to London. Upon the their first visit to the States at the end of 2008, they sold out shows in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and San Diego—their first set of dates ever in the US. They will do an 18-city west coast tour with Brett Dennen starting on Thursday, March 12 in Vancouver and ending on Saturday, April 4 in Salt Lake City. They will then head to the Midwest and east coast for their own headline tour (tour dates to be announced shortly).
