} Singer-Songwriter Prateek Kuhad Gears Up For Muti-City International Tour

Splitting his time between New York and New Delhi, songwriter Prateek Kuhad has become one of the most highly-regarded independent artists in India, especially after the head-turning success of his last release, cold/mess. 

And in March, Prateek will begin his biggest-ever international tour – spread across 15 cities in North America. The singer-songwriter will kickstart the month-long tour with performances at South by Southwest (SXSW), one of the creative industry’s biggest events. Other confirmed acts at SXSW include Deerhunter; Sam Fender; Flint Eastwood; BRONCHO; Talos; Amanda Palmer, Viagra Boys, HÆLOS, Ezra Collective, Wyclef Jean, Oh Sees and others.

“This would be the longest and most intense touring I have done so far in my career,” says Prateek, before adding, “It’s over 15 dates compressed into less than a month, so a show every other day pretty much. Honestly, I’m kind of nervous, but also very excited about bringing my songs to so many new people! I’m touring with my band this time around so I think that will really add to my live set. This is also going to be my second time at SXSW, and we’re playing a couple of really cool showcases there – should be fun!”

Prateek will be performing shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston – four cities with the highest concentration of Prateek fans, according to data released by Apple Music – alongside gigs in San Francisco, Seattle, Houston, Portland, Denver, Washington, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal from March 12 onwards. 

Prateek Kuhad’s music – an arresting blend that combines organic folk intimacy and lush pop appeal – and the success of cold/mess could propel Prateek towards global recognition, with the upcoming North American tour acting as the perfect catalyst.
