Atlantic recording artist Rumer has announced that she will headline New York City’s Highline Ballroom on Tuesday, November 13th. The British songstress will perform songs from her recently released extraordinary new album, “BOYS DON’T CRY” as well as her acclaimed debut album, “SEASONS OF MY SOUL”.

“BOYS DON’T CRY” sees Rumer bringing her remarkable voice to a striking selection of songs penned and originally performed by some of the most iconic male songwriters of the 1970s.  The album showcases stunning reinterpretations of classics like Daryl Hall & John Oates’ “Sara Smile” and Townes van Zandt’s “Flyin’ Shoes” alongside works by such legendary tunesmiths as Todd Rundgren, Isaac Hayes, Ronnie Lane, Paul Williams, Stephen Bishop and Terry Reid.

Fueled by the much-admired hit singles “Slow” and “Aretha,” “SEASONS OF MY SOUL” was a platinum certified popular success upon its initial 2010 U.K. release.  What’s more, the album proved an international sensation, reaching the top 10 in Belgium, Norway, Ireland, New Zealand, and the Netherlands.

Furthermore, Rumer received rapturous praise for her live performances, with Q extolling “a voice pure as a primary colour, dappling occasional light towards Carole King, more seldom Alison Goldfrapp, but for the most part a fiery phoenix rising from the unmistakable ashes of Karen Carpenter.”  “Her vocals are a deft blend of bright, shining delicacy and the darkness of genuine heartache,” declared The Independent . In addition, a performance at New York’s Joe’s Pub earned the admiration of the Daily News, who noted, “It’s particularly gratifying in these melisma-mad days to hear a singer who doesn’t throw her voice around athletically.  Instead (Rumer) trusts the essential quality of her instrument to tell the tale.”

The U.S. release of “SEASONS OF MY SOUL” was followed by a number of high-profile TV appearances, including NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and CBS Sunday Morning.  The latter feature instantly established Rumer as a major star, catapulting the album to #1 on the iTunes Store as well as both Amazon and Barnes & Noble’s digital albums charts.
