Maren Morris

Today, Grammy-winning superstar Maren Morris confirms a U.S. headline tour kicking off in June through 2022, with stops at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and more—see full routing and supporting acts below. Public onsale begins March 11 at 10am local time.

Maren’s new album Humble Quest is out March 25 on Sony Music Nashville’s Columbia Nashville imprint. Thus far, Maren has shared two singles from Humble Quest—“Circles Around This Town,” and “Background Music.”

Produced by frequent collaborator Greg Kurstin (Adele, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters) and written alongside her husband Ryan Hurd, Julia Michaels, Jimmy Robbins, Natalie Hemby, Laura Veltz and Jon Green on Busbee’s piano, Humble Quest is Maren’s most genuine collection of songs, tracing her journey to embrace the imperfections in her life through snapshots of her rises and falls, overshares, lullabies, wine-soaked conversations with one old friend and a final goodbye to another one. “Am I humble enough now?” Maren asks herself sometimes. “Maybe. Or maybe I still haven’t found it yet. Or maybe, who cares as long as your friends and, most importantly, you know what your heart is all about? But here’s to taking the quest to find out.”

“It’s a song about positivity and hope of what’s to come. It’s about reassurance that you can

make the choices that are best for you without the influence of others and that there are people

out there that will make you feel most like yourself.”


By her own admission, the last twelve months have been full of stand out moments for the 20

-year-old Irish, half Argentinian musician, who released three singles in 2020, largely during

lockdown. These tracks have been streamed more than 30 million times across DSPs

to date and Luz has received praise and support from almost all of her favourite musicians, including Ed Sheeran, Sigrid, Julia Michaels, Lewis Capaldi, Dermot Kennedy and Niall Horan.

17 year old Elise Eriksen has some friends help her out with her single “Less.” The song was co-written by Julia Michaels and features Shoffy, along with Blu DeTiger on bass.

“The first time I heard ‘Less’ I was really struck by how the chords were sort of jazzy, because I have such a huge appreciation for jazz,” says Elise, who names Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James among her all-time favorite singers. “It’s such a perfectly crafted song, and I love how there’s this new meaning to it now everyday life has been so drastically altered. I think everyone can relate to feeling isolated, and just wanting to connect and be together again.”

Eriksen has had a long journey from her native Norway, to NYC and now Los Angeles.
