David Thomas Broughton:
David Thomas Broughton’s “live shows are miniature spectacles… He layers sounds in slightly haphazard ways, as though his songs weren’t so holy that he couldn’t subject them to chance” - Pitchfork
“The most brilliant and baffling show I'm likely to see this year.” - Timeout NY
“Straddling the line between music hall turn and avant-garde performance artist, Broughton’s live show is not to be missed.” - MOJO magazine
Mercury Music Award nominee Kathryn Williams began her career in 1999 with the release of Dog Leap Stairs, a beguiling set of low-key folk songs that drew comparisons to the hushed musings of Nick Drake. Now nine albums into a solo career, Kathryn has rarely been anything other than thoroughly captivating.
“Williams produces her own spellbinding pieces of art.” – Clash
“Kathryn’s combination of melancholy and melody is bang on.” – The Irish Times
“As braw as a craw” – Bob Agnews
