Julia Deans Announces Support Acts
We Light Fire Album Release Tour

Julia Deans is pleased to announce the artists that will open for her We Light Fire album release tour.

Following her opening for Marlon Williams’ sold out nationwide tour, this is the former Fur Patrol icon’s first headline tour, with full band, in over seven years.

Having put out the call to find local female musicians for each of her shows around the country, Julia has finalised the nine acts.

“It was not an easy choice whittling down the list to just one artist in each town. There are so many wonderful women musicians out there. I can’t wait to share the stage with them next month”.
