Joseph Arthur Lines Up Mini-Residency Tour

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur will finish up his opening stint on Ben Harper's European tour next week and has announced plans to set up rotating mini-residencies in such cities as Montreal, Minneapolis, Toronto, Cleveland, and New York City as part of his own North American tour.

Arthur will play several cities on a rotating schedule throughout May and June to build East Coast support for his new album, "Come To Where I'm From," which was co-produced by T-Bone Burnett, the man who helped craft Counting Crows' "August And Everything After" and the Wallflowers' "Bringing Down The Horse."

"Chemical" is currently being pushed as the first radio single from "Come To Where I'm From," and Arthur recently shot a video for the track which features an appearance by actress Rosanna Arquette.

Prior to that, Arthur and Harper's overseas jaunt will culminate in a Paris show at the Palais Omnisports on April 18 with co-headliners Gomez, with whom Arthur

recorded back in February during a break from that band's American tour.
