Following a string of sold out shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, 23-year-old American singer-songwriter Bridgit Mendler is slated to hit the road this Spring in 2017, joining bi-coastal alt-pop duo POWERS (Crista Ru and Mike Del Rio) as co-headliners on the NYLON Music Tour.
Bridgit and POWERS took to social media earlier this week to share the exciting tour announcement in a fun video message (check it out HERE). Crisscrossing the U.S. and Canada, the thirteen-stop NYLON Music Tour kicks off March 20, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia, just after Bridgit’s scheduled appearance at SXSW in Austin, TX. The tour will make stops in New York City, Washington DC, Montreal, Toronto, Chicago, Seattle and more before wrapping up April 7, 2017 in San Francisco.

Also announced today, a brand new remix of Bridgit’s critically acclaimed single, “Do You Miss Me At All” from Toronto-based Musician/Producer/DJ Pusher. The remix elevates the sultry, R&B-influenced vibes of Bridgit’s original, taking it to a whole other, more dance-floor ready place. The Pusher Remix of “Do You Miss Me At All” is available to download and stream today via Black Box. Give it a listen here.
Last month, Bridgit unveiled the smoldering video for “Do You Miss Me At All” on Pigeon & Planes, who labeled the song a “simmering breakup track.” Watch and share the video here . The second track lifted off Bridgit Mendler’s “NEMESIS” EP, “Do You Miss Me At All” served as the follow-up to her much buzzed-about lead single, “Atlantis,” which went on to reach #2 on Spotify’s Viral Chart and #1 on HypeMachine, garnering more than seven million combined streams and receiving international critical acclaim. The “Nemesis” EP was recorded in Los Angeles and features a stunning collection of heartfelt alt-pop, R&B gems, all co-written by Mendler herself, alongside Book & Bastian, who also served as producers on the EP.
Described by Noisey as a “crossroads between Imogen Heap and early Purity Ring”, Bridgit has evolved from her pop-oriented origins and discovered her true sound. With influences from the likes of Lauryn Hill, her effortless combination of silky pop verses with edgy soul and R&B-tinged choruses create beautiful harmonies and show off her impressive vocal range. A snapshot of a tumultuous time in Bridgit's life, her “Nemesis” EP is a collection of four self-assured and bittersweet relationship songs that entwine intelligent pop, soul and R&B, all dusted with a fresh, modern-sounding electronic sheen.
