British born, Canadian singer/songwriter Fiona Bevan will join critically acclaimed musician Hawksley Workman on a cross-country tour this fall.

She will perform in Swift Current, on Oct. 17 at the Lyric Theatre.
This tour comes in the wake of Bevan’s new album Talk To Strangers (Convexe Entertainment/ Universal Music Canada), which was released in Canada earlier this year on June 26.
Bevan caught the music industry’s attention in Toronto when she performed a private acoustic show at the HMV Underground. The artist’s mesmerizing showcase delivery quickly landed her a deal with the United Talent Agency (formerly The Agency Group).    
Listen to the single Slo Mo Tiger Glo here:
Her background story is really cool as well.
Bevan grew up in Britain, but holds dual British/ Canadian citizenship — her ancestors include the author Robert Louis Stevenson and Toronto’s Gooderham and Worts distillery brewing clan. 
She began her music career at 15, starting as a bass player in a band before she was promoted to singer and songwriter.
Describing her music as “pop in disguise,” the singer/songwriter first garnered attention in North America in 2012 after co-writing the One Direction chart topping hit Little Things with her friend Ed Sheeran. Both artists won a Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI) award for the song.
She also co-wrote with the hugely popular Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds Of Summer on the track Voodoo Doll. Before debuting in Canada, Talk To Strangers had its U.K. release in April 2014. The album’s first single, The Machine, becoming a favourite on the BBC. Meanwhile, the track Slo Mo Tiger Glo, gained major attention thanks to its appearance in an HSBC television ad.
