Emma Ruth Rundle announces 2023 Tour
Singer-songwriter and visual artist Emma Ruth Rundle is pleased to announce her headlining North American 2023 Spring Tour. The forthcoming run will be the first time she performs her latest renowned albums, Engine of Hell and Orpheus Looking Back EP (Sargent House), live stateside. Kicking off in March, highlights include Los Angeles’ Masonic Lodge at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, two nights at San Francisco’s Swedish American Hall, NYC’s Le Poisson Rouge, Chicago’s Thalia Hall, Vancouver, Toronto, Boston, and more. Experimental saxophonist and musician Patrick Shiroishi will be supporting on each date.
Today Rundle also reveals her surreal new tour documentary All I Know of Love. Rundle and director Geert Braekers, who’ve traveled and toured together for years, worked collaboratively on the short which combines Rundle’s poems from the road with intimate footage from her 2022 tour across the UK and Ireland. It’s striking, offbeat ,and candidly captures a day in the life of a performer.

About Emma Ruth Rundle:
Rundle has always been a multifaceted musician, equally capable of dreamy abstraction (as heard on her debut album Electric Guitar: One), maximalist textural explorations (see her work in Marriages, Red Sparowes, Nocturnes or collaborations with Chelsea Wolfe and Thou), and the classic acoustic guitar singer-songwriter tradition (exemplified by Some Heavy Ocean). But on Engine of Hell, Rundle focuses on an instrument that she left behind in her early twenties when she began playing in bands: the piano. In combination with her voice, the piano playing creates a kind of intimacy, as if we’re sitting beside Rundle on the bench, or perhaps even playing the songs ourselves.
