Multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated recording artist Sara Bareilles has announced dates for her headlining â€œLittle Black Dressâ€ summer tour that includes a stop July 26 at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.
Bareilles first achieved mainstream critical praise in 2007 with her widely successful hit, â€œLove Songâ€ which reached No. 1 in 22 countries around the world from her debut album Little Voice.
Since then, the Eureka, Calif., native has gone on to sell more than one million copies of her debut album, earn three Grammy nominations including Song of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for â€œLove Song.â€
Her third studio effort, The Blessed Unrest, was released in July 2013 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard album chart. Since its release, the album has garnered rave reviews. USA Today called the work Bareillesâ€™ â€œmost mature and satisfying to dateâ€ while the Associated Press hailed â€œBareilles knows how to craft a great song. … Well Done.â€
The albumâ€™s smash breakout single, â€œBrave,â€ has taken on a life of its own becoming an anthem of empowerment for a variety of causes from bullying to cancer, to equality and gay marriage.
