This Spring, Begonia (Alexa Dirks) will return to life on the road for a run of dates in the US beginning March 2, 2022, before returning to Canada supporting Shakey Graves in May. Full tour dates can be found below.
Recently, Begonia shared the new single “Heaven”, a track that finds beauty in the unknown. Today, the celebrated artist is sharing two new live performance videos for “Heaven” and “It’s Too Quiet”, joined by Heather Thomas (Diaphanie), Fontine, Gabi Ocejo, Leith Ross, and Snackie.
“For these videos I really wanted to break this song down,” says Dirks. “I had a vision of us living in a world of clouds but in the style of a community theatre production, haha. I enlisted some of my favourite musicians / people to make this vision a reality. I don’t often interpret my songs in this way and I really love the vulnerability that this version provides. Nothing to hide behind, and it just gets down to the purity of the song. Harmonizing and singing with others is one of the most soul nourishing things IN THE WORLD and I admire and love all these people sooo much. They are all so talented and have their own respective projects, so please check them out!”
