Accompanying their stunning single Safe, three iconic ladies, Beverley Craven, Julia Fordham and Judie Tzuke have released an album as they tour this autumn, with a majority of the dates long-since sold out including their Bristol stop, at St George's, Bristol on November 27.

There’s a number of notable venues on the tour, places like The Apex (Bury St Edmunds), The Sage (Gateshead), and The Queen’s Hall (Edinburgh) to name a few; stunning venues for three stunning voices of immense beauty.

Those attending are certainly anticipating something rather special, something great and, with the track, ‘Safe’ earning a worldwide exclusive debut outing on Graham Norton’s BBC Radio 2 show back on Easter Monday, it’s been a rollercoaster year for Craven, Fordham and Tzuke.

Co-written with the equally stunning Beth Nielsen Chapman, ‘Safe’ went straight to number one on the iTunes vocal charts, and their album, rightly named ‘Woman to Woman’ is also gaining traction in the charts.

Judie certainly picked a ‘Safe’ option when combining with Nashville’s own singer-songwriter, Beth Nielsen Chapman for the lead single on the album.

The multi-award winning, double grammy nominated, Texan, who has performed in the region before, has collaborated with many stars from Sir Elton John to Joe McElderry, Faith Hill, Neil Diamond and Bette Midler, this collaboration being just as stunning.

“We’re really proud of it, the whole project is just magical,” glowed Judie.

“I met Beth (Nielsen Chapman) at a music workshop and I was lost as to what to write so, with her, and with us both having been through quite a bit in our respective lives, we both worked around what we wanted to be – Safe.”

Hearing it for the first time renders the same response with which Tzuke and Chapman had putting the masterpiece together, it’s emotional and thought-provoking.

“We were both crying when doing it,” she continued. “During the writing process we also thought that it would work great in three part harmonies and it’s amazing that Safe comes across as it does, like the three of us have known each other forever, but we actually haven’t, we’ve only really just met.

“It has had a life of its own and we’re very happy to run it.

“The song itself relates to both men and women which is fantastic and we hope that people can feel ‘Safe’ even if just for that particular period.

“I’m loving all this though and we’re really excited by the snowball effect it’s having.

“After all, we’re just three singer-songwriters.”

In Beverley Craven and Julia Fordham, Ms Tzuke couldn’t have asked for better duo to go on tour with and the ladies three will be performing to sold-out venues across the country.

“To be touring as a trio is quite simply a dream come true!” continued Beverley.

“We are all huge fans of each other’s work so to be able to come together is something special.

“Woman To Woman is a celebration of live music and sisterhood.

“The tour will be full of passion and performed from the heart!

“We cannot wait to share a stage together, create beautiful vocal harmonies with each other and collaborate on some exciting new material.”

With a deep sensing connection between them, all three artists, stars in their own right, are all happy working alongside each other.

“You can sense the camaraderie and see the magic right there,” stated Julia.

“You can see both the strength within us, and the passion within us as well.

“We’ve been buoyed, lifted, by the palpable appreciation we’ve received, that we’re effortlessly receiving – people appreciate that we’re still here and they know all of our songs.

“It’s a reaction, a feel good factor, which you can’t manufacture.”
