With her acclaimed Number 1 album ‘The Architect’ riding high in the charts and a BRIT nomination for Best British Female, Paloma Faith has announced a must-see 20 date UK summer tour which include Stadiwm Zip World in Colwyn Bay.
So far ‘The Architect’ has spent eight weeks in the Top 10, propelled by the poptastic single ‘Crybaby’, the stunning ‘Guilty’ and latest single ‘Till I’m Done’. The new album has already gone Gold in the UK and she is only one of two British female artists this decade to have their first three albums go double platinum in the UK!
Equally at home onstage and in the studio, these shows will undoubtedly be one of the highlights of the summer season.
Jack Savoretti joins Brit Award winner Paloma Faith at the annual summer show at Colwyn Bay’s Stadiwm Zip World. Paloma is at the top of her game, a double-platinum selling artist who last year released her fourth studio album The Architect which became her first UK #1. The Architect follows the huge success of Paloma’s last album, A Perfect Contradiction which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200. The epic lead single from the record, Only Love Can Hurt Like This is Paloma’s biggest-seller to date, with over half a million copies sold and 55 million streams on Spotify.
Also supporting is Nia Wyn, who knows Colwyn Bay all too well having grew up in nearby Llandudno. Nia’s talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within a kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal with licks of blues and soul, immediately marks her out against the backdrop of emerging young female artists coming out of the UK – conjuring up a very exciting, defiant charisma that’s both tough and warm. Nia has made a big impact in a short amount of time being played-listed on BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist, featured with influential Fred Perry Subculture, won funding from BBC Horizons Launchpad and tweeted that she’s been in the studio with the Modfather himself, Paul Weller!
The July 14 concert is the first in the newly named Stadiwm Zip World, and promoted by two-time UK Regional Promoter of the Year, Orchard Entertainment, who have brought an array of stars to Colwyn Bay over the past seven years.
The concert is supported by Conwy County Borough Council and Bay of Colwyn Town Council. Media partners are Heart FM.
