GARANCE & THE MITOCHONDRIES
Garance Louis. Extrovert, eccentric composer, singer and accordionist from Perpignan, has created a fresh and new way of interpreting the French Chanson tradition, with her formidable band The Mitochondries. Imagine a mixture of Tom Waits, Edith Piaf and Frank Zappa, with the melancholy softness of post-musette songwriting. Garance has appeared in the bars and street corners of her adoptive London for 4 years, always surrounded by the most curiously talented musicians she can find.
PEPE BELMONTE BAND
Pepe Belmonte is a folk-blues guitar player and singer song-writer. He grew up in Co. Cork on the West coast of Ireland. His musical influence meanders through Irish, Malian and Hawaiian folk to the pre-war blues of Chicago along The Delta and down through the lyrical landscape of Dylan, Mitchell and Young. Mississippi John Hurt meets JJ Cale meets Nick Drake. Music from his as yet un-officially released album 'THE HERMIT'S WALTZ' make up the soundtrack to the independent feature film, 'The Hour of Living' in which Pepe also appears as 'The Singer'.
A book of poems and pictures will soon be published and his debut album 'The Hermit's Waltz' is available at the usual online stores and the remaining hard copies are only available at gigs.
Pepe's new sound steps away from the acoustic blues folk toward a plugged in rootsier noise where, with nostalgic and contemporary tones you will be transported to deep swamp America, the Irish countryside and the streets of London.
Inventive grooves and experimental sounds accompany Nina's revelatory songwriting. Come and discover what one woman and her double bass can do!
