Speak, Brother @ Arlington Arts
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm

Boasting a powerful indie-folk-rock sound with subtle hymnal and gospel tones, their story based anthems have drawn comparisons to the likes of Of Monsters and Men, Kodaline and Fleet foxes.

After successful tours with the likes of Julien Barbagallo (Tame Impala), the band stamped their mark on the scene with their crowdfunded Album “Young & Brave” in April 2018.
The Album recorded with Gavin Monaghan (The Sherlocks) achieved multiple plays on BBC Radio 2 and became BBC Georgey’s artist of the week with a sound to have been “designed to swell the emotions and arrest the heart” (Listen with Monger). Now the band are set to release two further singles over the Summer of 2019.

Marry Waterson & Emily Barker @ Arlington Arts
Oct 30 @ 8:00 pm

English folk royalty meets Australian soul in this new collaboration between Marry Waterson and Emily Barker; an album of fly-on-the-wall observations of the contradictions and disconnections of modern life. No strangers to collaboration, Waterson and Barker discovered an immediate kinship when they started writing together.

The intriguing combination of Waterson’s poetic lyrics and Barker’s eclectic musicality has been shaped in the studio by musical polymath Adem Ilhan, with recording contributions from two of Barker’s live band: Lukas Drinkwater (bass and guitar) and Rob Pemberton (drums). Serendipity worked her magic in bringing Waterson, Barker and Adem together.

The resulting collection of songs pushes the boundaries of Barker and Waterson’s renowned roots styles, venturing into a diverse union of genres – contemporary folk, country and soul nestles comfortably alongside lilting indie and playful blues. ‘A Window To Other Ways’ is the product of two revered musicians embarking upon an exciting, explorative journey, and a charmed collaboration. A Window To Other Ways was released on March 29th via One Little Indian Records.

“The whole is heavy with greatness that just improves and goes on improving” ★★★★★ RnR

“a charmer that slips between styles” 7/10 UNCUT

“One is an English folk voice, the other an Australian soul songwriter, but together they traverse style and geography to truly connect.” CLASH

“‘A Window To Other Ways’ is the product of two revered musicians embarking upon an exciting, explorative journey, and a charmed collaboration” Folk Radio

“Together, the pair have cooked up a dozen songs that blend light and dark” The Observer

“Perfect Needs has a Fleetwood Mac tinge, Little Hits of Dopamine morphs into psychedelia, and Trick Of The Light is distinctly jazzy. Charming highlight Drinks Two And Three is a wry look at social imbibing.” Daily Express

“an obvious kinship between the women flaming in the songs and arrangements” The Guardian
