Toronto, ON – April 28, 2011 - Oh Susanna has been wowing audiences for over a decade with her breathtaking songwriting and effortless vocals.  With her 6th studio album, Soon the Birds, out now she is very excited to be co-headlining with Matthew Barber for their upcoming “He said, She said” tour.  Six seems to be the magic number as Matthew Barber will also be releasing his sixth album in May.  Both artists are looking forward to sharing the stage together with a tour that promises to feature many collaborations between the talented songwriters.  This will be a rare treat for fans to see two of Canada’s great voices together. The Canadian tour will begin in Winnipeg on June 6th with more dates to be announced soon (dates listed below).

Matthew Barber is an acclaimed singer-songwriter hailing from Toronto and has been a fixture in the Canadian music scene.  His self-titled LP will be released on May 31 on iTunes and June 7 in stores.  Matthew is looking forward to sharing the stage with Oh Susanna.

“I've been a fan of Oh Susanna since I first saw her play at the Mansion in Kingston when I was going to school.  I later had the great pleasure of opening for her at the sadly-missed Raven in Hamilton years ago and again in London, England.  She's a captivating singer and evocative songwriter and I'm thrilled to be hitting the road with her.” Matthew Barber

Oh Susanna is very keen to bring her new songs from Soon The Birds on the road with Matthew. Check out a new behind the scenes video of the making of the album here. Oh Susanna has released five critically acclaimed albums and has shared the stage with The Weakerthans, Sarah Harmer, Martha Wainwright, Hawksley Workman and Justin Rutledge.
