Advance £7 - We Got Tickets
ROSE MELBERG (US)
Rose Melberg fronted some of the most beloved and definitive American indiepop bands of 1990’s including K Records legends The Softies and Tiger Trap. A productive over achiever, Rose has given us a seemingly endless avalanche of mellifluous albums to treasure since the first Tiger Trap record was released in 1993. Her second solo album ‘Cast Away The Clouds’ is her most honest and mature work to date whilst still retaining the vulnerable and delicate charm of The Softies. With the album recently giving an official UK release by Where It’s At Is Where You Are records, Rose comes to London for here first ever show in the UK. Don’t miss this one chance to catch the queen of American indiepop in the UK.
“Simply enchanting. With only minimal help (the occasional piano, harmony vocal, and violin), the ex-Softies singer has crafted an intimate and sweet record that tenderly plucks heartstrings and will leave you with a warmed, if somewhat melancholy, heart.” (All Music Guide)
HARVEY WILLIAMS (UK)
Rose is supported by England’s very own reclusive janglepop genius, Harvey Williams. Harvey began recording under the name ‘Another Sunny Day’ at the end of the ‘80s releasing several much revered singles on the Sarah Records imprint before a stint as lead guitarist with The Field Mice. Under his own name he released two solo albums during the 90’s favouring a more keyboard based sound to compliment his fragile voice and confessional lyrical style. Fresh from a glorious performance at the New York City Popfest, this will be a rare chance to catch Harvey performing in London.
THE DREAMERS (UK/SWE)
A new Anglo/Swedish project formed by Kevin Wright, former Always (el Records) and also known for his music made as Mr Wright (Siesta Records) and Sarah Nyberg Pergament, also known as Action Biker. Together they create lush acoustic songs with a heavy hint of melancholy. This will be their debut UK performance.
