WHISKEY MOON FACE
Born into a puddle of whiskey beneath a stark winter moon and raised by cold winds, schooled in the warming spirits and hungry for more, Whiskey Moonface manage a natural, graceful sound built from many ports. The spellbinding voice that haunts Hackney's back streets, the clarinet that floats through open windows with impossible lyricism, and the double bass that meanders beneath. Always innovating and improvising with stark originality, Louisa Jones' troupe of underground musicians play with a virtuosity you could never expect. Songs which speak of the unspeakable, with understated humour, captivating storytelling and a transcendent spirituality. The result of a thousand drunken nights, countless dreamy days, and years of musical adventuring, Whiskey Moon Face take you on a voyage into a bohemian underworld which you never knew existed.
From soulful Sephardic songs to lively Balkan rhythms, Bis-Bas present their spicy fusion of Klezmer and Middle Eastern music.
Vocalist Jonny Moses-son hails from Aden, a port town on the ancient spice route where Eastern influences merge with Spanish and North African music. Bogdan Vacarescu brings the romantic, virtuoso sound of the Romanian school of violin. Jake Painter is one of London’s leading Jazz trumpeters, and guitarist Peter Michaels expresses his East European heritage alongside a passion for flamenco. Together Bis-Bas create a potent mix of rhythm and song, presenting new material from their upcoming debut album.
Leonie Evans is capable of things that most vocalist could never even dream of. With her sensational voice she is able to capture moods and textures with her arresting purity and beauty, hitting all the right notes and a few bonus ones too with effortless grace. A prolific songwriter, her own music is a take on jazz, blues and folk, and on the night she'll be collaborating with some of the hottest musicians from the underground scene.
