AUSTRALIAN SINGER/SONGWRITER STU LARSEN

AND JAPANESE MUSICIAN NATSUKI KURAI

ANNOUNCE WORLDWIDE TOUR

IN SUPPORT OF ‘STU LARSEN & NATSUKI KURAI II’ EP

(OUT NOW VIA NETTWERK RECORDS)

May 14, 2018 – Australian born and self-described vagabond Stu Larsen and Japanese harmonica player Natsuki Kurai have announced a worldwide tour that will take them through North America, UK, Europe and Japan. In May, the duo will perform several dates in Japan before heading to the US & Canada later this summer. Full North American dates below.

Earlier this month, the duo released their second EP together, aptly titled Stu Larsen & Natsuki Kurai II (via Nettwerk Records). The 4-song EP includes two original tracks – “My Poor Father” and “Hajimari” – but, also two reinterpretations of tracks from Larsen’s last album Resolute – “Chicago Song” and “Going Back To Bowenville.” Natsuki adds a swagger and energy to Stu’s observations on life from his travels.

Nearly eight years ago, Natsuki and Larsen met in the middle of Tokyo and quickly connected with each other.

I spoke no Japanese and Natsuki didn’t speak English so we found we had to communicate in other ways. We both agree that this allowed us to form a deeper connection, without words,” says Larsen.

Since then, they’ve continued traveling back and forth from Australia to Japan, playing shows and festivals along the way.
