European Tour, February & March 2013 - Looking for 4-5 more shows central or northern Europe

Hey all! Happy New Year!
Hope this finds everyone doing well.

I am almost finished with booking the first leg of our European tour for the release of my latest album, "The Burn The Truth The Lies." The new album was recorded by Jim Vollentine (Patty Griffin) at Treefort Studios in Austin, and it sounds terrific.  The album features some fantastic musicians, including Grammy-winning guitarist Joe Reyes and producer/keyboardist Rip Rowan (Old '97s, Rhett Miller), and the reviews have been very good.

I am playing in Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, and Belgium between February 6 and March 19 (you can see the full schedule at the bottom of this post), and we are looking to add a few more dates.  It would be great to add some in Switzerland, Austria, or France if possible.
We can play as a solo, duo, or trio and we currently have the following dates available:
February 25-26-27 (looking for shows between IT & NL... so CH, AU, DE, or FR would work best)
March 4-5-6 (looking for shows in NL/BE/DE)
March 17-18-19 (looking for shows between DE & IT, so DE, CH, AU)

Reviewers have said:

“the best kind of singer-songwriter” – The Dallas Observer

"...[it] is just a wonderful summer record, full of sun-dappled jangly guitars and choruses that are just begging to be hummed." - Heartache with Hard Work

" is yet another gem of an album, probably her best yet" - For Folk's Sake (UK)

"I was struck by how smart a lyricist she was. Couple that with a great sense of delivery, and you have something." - Justin Cober-Lake, reviewer for PopMatters


* My music is indie folk-rock, and has been compared to Kathleen Edwards, Aimee Mann, or a female version of The Jayhawks.
* I have won various awards in Austin and throughout Texas for Best New Band, New Folk Artist, and Best Female Vocals. 
* I have played 900+ shows in the last 8 years and have toured across America, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, England, Ireland, Belgium, and Germany.
