On the heels of wrapping a successful 21 date tour of the US in early September, the young Dancehall Soul songstress Cherine Anderson returns to the States again, this time hitting the road with singer/activist Michael Franti and Spearhead.  Anderson is touring with the massively popular Franti and Spearhead in support of their September 9th release, All Rebel Rockers, in which Cherine is featured on three songs.  The first single off the album, “Say Hey (I Love You)” featuring Cherine, is receiving great radio rotation as well as being featured on ads for the CW and E! Entertainment Networks.  

Anderson serves as the band’s opening act performing songs from her upcoming EP “The Introduction-dubstyle”, and rejoins the band as a featured vocalist during the Spearhead set.  Just several shows into joining the tour, Anderson’s presence has created a buzz.  Nicole Kristek of Mel.Opho.be writes about the show at Marymoor Amphitheatre in Washington, “(Cherine) showed off her range and power with slow “diva”-style vocals mixed over reggae beats. A bit reminiscent of Lauryn Hill but with more funk to her voice, we found her to be extremely charismatic, weaving her sultry way across the stage”.

The All Rebel Rockers tour also allowed Cherine the opportunity to perform at The Hollywood Bowl, her second feature at the famed concert hall in her young career.  In October, the tour takes Anderson to Australia, her first time taking her Dancehall Soul sound “Down Under”.   The talented artists bring their powerful shows to ten cities in Australia including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.  A video for the follow up single “Little Bit of Riddim” (song and video also featuring Anderson) was shot on location in Jamaica under the direction of the Ras Kassa, so be on the look out for its premiere!
