This just in...
"Hello fellow bat friends!
I hope this finds you all well. Sooo, I have been away for a very long time it feels, writing many songs, visiting the awe inspiring Joshua Tree desert, making films, living in Brooklyn - (soaking up amazing bands like Amazing Baby, Gang Gang Dance, Brightside, Moon and Moon, Lewis and Clarke, Caroline Weeks, Bon Iver) and getting rehearsed for the upcoming Radiohead tour. (ahhh!)
So i would like to introduce to you "The Blue Dreams", who will be my new and very magically talented backing band!
Carloine Weeks - flute, keys, autoharp, guitar, vocals, drum
Ben Christophers - Harp, Marxophone, pianochord, synths, guitar and phono-fiddle!
Katherine Mann (Quinta) - Violin, viola, clarinet, saw, marxophone, drum and vocals
Alex Thomas - Drums, electronic pads, percussion and timpanis
and i [Natasha Khan] will be playing piano, harpsichord, autoharp, percussion, bass and singing.
I have brought 4 new songs in to the live set, which have been arranged with much excitement and spontaneous need of dance routines! I am so proud and happy about how the new ones are shaping up and cant wait to continue recording the new album after the tour.
I hope to see some of you during June and July, and that you have a lovely summer peace out!
