Fresh off a concert before thousands of adoring fans in Paris, international acoustic soul sensation Ayo returns to the US for her first club headlining tour! Armed with her “breezy blend” (People) of “soulful and eclectic mixture of genres ” (NPR) and supporting her new single, the perfect-for-summer track “Life is Real,” Ayo will get the summer crowds excited with her first stop in Atlanta June 14. Ayo will perform songs off her acclaimed debut album JOYFUL (Interscope), which is already a multiplatinum hit in Europe and has earned raves Stateside-the New York Times praised, “her voice is airily soulful, and she works against an acoustic backdrop that feels both effortless and focused.”

For American music fans that don’t get to catch her on tour, they will have a chance to fall under the spell of Ayo, when Interscope Records releases her debut CD JOYFUL Nov. 20, which Vibe Magazine has already praised as a “a gorgeous collection of billowy ballads” (Nov. 07). Shortly thereafter, PBS will air her 90-minute concert special, “Ayo Live In Monte Carlo,” on affiliates nationwide during their pledge week in December.
