Norman-based experimental artist M. Bailey Stephenson (fka sun riah) will hit the road next month with her harp, effects pedals, and a number of new song compositions in tow. With a focus on the Washington, Oregon, and California areas, she will take her hypnotic solo show to 20 cities over the course of three weeks in September and October.)

The West Coast will get a taste of the sophomore full-length Sun Riah has in the works, a project about which Cellar Door Music Group dropped early details back in May.

The autumn tour kicks off in Norman at The Deli on Monday, September 19th, at 10 pm. The bill will also feature up-and-coming indie rockers Haniwa and prolific psych-folk band Anvil Salute.
