Soul newcomer India's debut album surfaces on April 16...

INDIA.ARIE is to support MUSIQ SOULCHILD on his forthcoming tour.

Bohemian soul newcomer India.Arie, whose ‘Acoustic Soul’ debut album is due for release on April 16, has been confirmed as the support act for Musiq Soulchild’s forthcoming London date on April 29.

India was signed to the legendary Motown record label by Kedar Massengburg, who once managed D’Angelo and currently manages Erykah Badu. As you’d expect, ‘Acoustic Soul’ fits into the ‘nu classic soul’ criteria, currently popularised by Musiq Soulchild, whose ‘Aijuswanaseing (I Just Wanna Sing)’ debut album has already sold over a quarter of a million copies in the USA.
