Winnipeg’s Romi Mayes has announced the dates of her upcoming cross-Canada tour in support of her forthcoming sixth album Devil on Both Shoulders, out on May 12, 2015.

Over the course of six albums, Mayes has received three Western Canadian Music Awards for Songwriter of the Year, two Western Canadian Music Awards for Album of The Year, a JUNO Award nomination and various Canadian Music Award nominations.

She has nothing but praise for producer Grant Siemens and the raw and real approach they took to producing the album.

“His impeccable sentimentalities really brought the groove and the flow to the album,” Mayes said in a statement. “There was so much respect, trust, and commitment to the end result that we worked together flawlessly. His confidence in me as a songwriter and a singer brought out my best, and pushed me to a higher level of writing and performance.”

She was joined in the studio by Damon Mitchell (The New Meanies, Nathan), Alexa Dirks (Chic Gamine), Bernie Thiessen (Big Dave McLean), and Marc Arnould.

“I quit smoking six months before the album recording so I was able to sing in a different way and more melodically than I had expected I would,” she said. “I think it’s my best one yet.”
