Fresh off the release of her debut studio album, singer/actress/model Leighton Meester is set to delight one of America’s most legendary music venues on her ‘Heartstrings’ tour.

At the Birchmere, fans will likely hear a wide range of selections from the indie-pop album, which has received high marks from critics, with Billboard comparing her ethereal style to Tori Amos or Joni Mitchell.

Meester told Billboard, “‘Heartstrings’ speaks to vibe and encompasses a lot of the themes of the rest of the album. It’s been a long time coming and I’m very excited to finally release it.”

The show will be the first show of Meester’s limited seven-date winter tour, so don’t be surprised to see fans who traveled a long distance to arrive at the Birchmere. And given Meester’s prowess in Hollywood, you can’t rule out a celebrity sighting or two in the audience.
