Paloma follows in the footsteps of legendary rockers Blondie who announced their 14th June show last month.

Speaking about her Forest Live dates and her Brit nominations, Paloma Faith said: “I’m really excited about these shows. It’s going to be a great experience so I hope you will be able to join me on my woodland adventure this summer.”

“I am also delighted to have been nominated for these Brit awards. I don’t expect to win, but it’s so wonderful to be acknowledged for contributing something to British music. I am very proud to be British and so happy to do something I love.”

Paloma is nominated for best album and best British female in February’s Brit awards.

Her debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? was released in 2009 introduced Paloma Faith to the international music scene.

Her glossy ensemble of retro-referencing soul and sassy pop songs became a huge hit, with tracks like Stone Cold Sober and Upside Down topping the charts.

And the epic sweep of her biggest chart hit New York went on to sell over half a million copies.

Faith’s 2012 second album Fall To Grace continues to build upon the success of her debut release.

The singles Picking Up the Pieces, 30 Minute Love Affair, Just Be and her enchanting cover of Never Tear Us Apart have already achieved chart success.

Audiences are in for an enchanting night of glossy retro-inspired pop and performance on 15th June at Sherwood Pines.
