With a massive and ever-increasing 1.2 million followers on Twitter (British comedy legend Stephen Fry has 1.3m) classically trained London rocker Noush Skaugen has the sort of viral clout that most artists can only dream about. Noush’s instinctive use of social media – crowd-sourcing poster designs from fans, and tweeting pictures of last-minute changes to hand-written set lists seconds before going on stage – has made her the number one most followed unsigned artist on the explosively popular social network, and a real force to be reckoned with. This fact has not escaped the attention of Twitter bosses, invited her to play a live-streamed from their San Francisco HQ which can be seen here http://noushskaugen.com/live

With two albums under her belt and a third due for release in the spring, Noush’s Twitter gig kicks off a series of dates prior to the May release of her new single “Run Baby Run”, a lyrically driven, darkly upbeat electro-tinged track and is scheduled to be released in May

The hard-working and charismatic performer has also notched up a string of impressive live dates during two years touring in the USA, appearing alongside a multitude of impressive acts including Nine Inch Nails, TV On The Radio, Paramore, R.E.M., Joss Stone and The Mars Volta at gigs in LA, Nashville, Austin and New Orleans. This culminated in her winning Alternative Pop Artist of the Year at the 17th Annual LA Music Awards, and the National Independent Rock EP of the Year at The Hollywood Music Awards.

Upcoming tour dates include:

March 31st – The Elgin, Ladbroke Grove – London, UK

April 16th – Indie Week Ireland – Dublin, Ireland
