Jackie Cohen / To Support Mac DeMarco on European Tour This October
Jackie Cohen has been announced as support for Mac DeMarco on his European tour dates this October, taking in Germany, Belgium, and three dates in the UK. The announcement comes as Jackie wraps up a run of North American dates supporting Alex Cameron and these UK dates, in particular, will be Cohen’s first time performing in the country. Full European listings below.
Cohen released her debut EP, 'Tacoma Night Terror Part 1: I’ve Got The Blues' on June 29th, 2018 via Spacebomb. The EP was produced by Jonathan Rado (Foxygen), whilst Brian D’Addario and Michael D’Addario (The Lemon Twigs) serve as the backing band behind Cohen's vocals. Cohen describes the EP as being a “perfect little encapsulation of the year I started experimenting with songwriting, and of the home-studio summer camp period when Michael and Brian basically lived in my garage. There's something really special about the setup Rado was running at that time, and everyone had this bright, fresh, exciting energy that I think really comes out in the recordings."
Videos for EP tracks ‘Darlin’’ and ‘Maddy’ can be viewed on YouTube. Both tracks have earned Jackie acclaim in the UK and in the US too, whilst another stand out EP track, ‘Bold’, has received strong support from BBC 6 Music - with plays from Shaun Keavney, Lauren Laverne, Nemone, & BBC 6 Music Recommends - and was recently added to the B-list at Amazing Radio.
Cohen is the latest artist signed to Spacebomb Records joining a roster that includes Bedouine, Andy Jenkins and more. It is an independent record label based in Richmond, VA, co-founded by Matthew E. White in 2012. The label has released notable albums by Matthew E. White, Natalie Prass among others.
‘Tacoma Night Terror Part 1: I’ve Got The Blues’ is out now on Spacebomb Records.
