Her unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time.

Produced by 16-time Grammy® Award winning producer David Foster, “Wallflower” finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all time. The album features popular classics from the late 60’s to present day that inspired Krall in her early years, as well as an unreleased composition from Paul McCartney (“If I Take You Home Tonight”). Krall describes her new album, saying that, “A lot of the songs on ‘Wallflower’ are ones I grew up loving on the radio and on vinyl, songs I heard at home. These are songs I’ve been singing to myself for years… I’m a bit of a method actor and ‘Wallflower’ is a part I really wanted to play.”

The “Wallflower World Tour” will feature Krall performing pop classics such as The Mamas and the Papas’ ” California Dreamin’ “, the Eagles’ “Desperado,” and Bob Dylan’s “Wallflower,” which inspired the upcoming album’s title track, among others. Krall will be accompanied onstage by Anthony Wilson (guitar), Dennis Crouch (bass), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Karriem Riggins (drums) and Patrick Warren (Keyboards).
