nellyfurtadosinging.jpg Get ready – international singing sensation Nelly Furtado is bringing her Get Loose Tour to the states for 17 live shows! The Get Loose Tour started in Europe with 23 shows over five weeks, then moved to her native Canada. First stop, her birthplace Victoria, British Columbia where the mayor’s office proclaimed March 21 as Nelly Furtado Day.

The tour includes four backup dancers, her six-piece band with popular Toronto rapper Saukrates on percussion who will also fill in for Loose producer Timbaland, from whistling on “All Good Things (Come to an End),” to rapping on the duo’s monster hit, “Promiscuous.” If that isn’t enough, Saukrates will also double as the opening act.


The show is inspired by one of the hottest cities in the country – Miami. “There’s palm trees on the set, white palm trees and a white stage, and it’s got a little bit of drama to it. I think the show’s a little more sensual or sophisticated, but I keep the primary focus on the songs,” says Furtado.

This has definitely been Furtado’s year! She was nominated for a Grammy, took home five Juno awards which is the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys, and won for Best International Female Artist at the Brit Awards in the U.K. in February.

Can’t wait for either, then get a sneak listen at iTunes of their new single First Time which is about the excitement and initial rush of romance.


Singer-songwriter Jason Wade, drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, and bassist Bryce Soderberg get back to their roots with Who We Are with Wade singing about why he first formed this band while still a teenager in suburban California. With all their success, believe it or not, the boys are only in their mid-20’s.
