(January 15, 2015)- Leighton Meester is pleased to announce her first US headlining tour since the release of her debut album, Heartstrings, this past October. The tour kicks off on February 18 in Alexandria, VA and takes Leighton up the East Coast, through the Midwest and down the West Coast wrapping up in San Francisco CA. A full list of dates can be found below.

Heartstrings is a dreamy singer-songwriter narrative of guarded love, irony and heartache. Written by Meester and produced by Jeff Trott (Sheryl Crow, Augustana), the nine-song album bares the influence of such artists as Stevie Nicks, Tori Amos, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. "I wrote Heartstrings as a process of relief, and working with Jeff allowed the songs themselves to grow as much as they could, which was considerable,” says Leighton. “Our approach was to flesh out the atmosphere around the feeling of each song with preproduction and then added the spontaneity of a live room for recording."
