We’re often so keen to reach new pastures that we forget how daunting unfamiliar territory can appear. Indie folk artist Laura Veirs took quite the leap into the unknown prior to the production of her latest record, Found Light, following the split from her husband and long-time collaborator – dealing with a divorce and a pandemic is surely not a feat undertaken lightly.

With independence comes a duality of freedom and responsibility: all decisions are yours, all successes are yours, but so too are all failures. Yet Veirs has been able to overcome her challenges with her newfound autonomy to create an album that best represents the next chapter of her life. Found Light is an ode to solo women in charge of their own destinies, but it is also an ode to Veirs herself as she rebuilt her identities both as an individual and as an artist.

Veirs reintroduces herself to her global audience at her (rescheduled from October 2021) appearance at Gosforth Civic Theatre on Tuesday 14th June, with support from indie singer-songwriter Joni, who traverses her personal cosmos of complex inspirations to entrance listeners and take them along for the ride.
