Lizzie Nunnery, Dan Whitehouse, Dayve Dean, The Science Of The Lamps show at The View Two Gallery
Liverpool Acoustic Live presents Lizzie Nunnery, with support from Wolverhampton's Dan Whitehouse, local lad Dayve Dean, and The Science of The Lamps.
LIZZIE NUNNERY HAS STORIES TO TELL AND A VOICE TO MAKE YOU LISTEN
With the release of her debut album Company of Ghosts in spring 2010, Lizzie's reputation as a captivating new voice in British folk, has continued to grow.
BBC Radio 2's Mike Harding named the album in his top ten releases of the year, and it was nominated for Best Debut in the 2010 Spiral Earth awards.
She has played at folk festivals and venues across the UK, and ended 2010 with a performance at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall's Irish Sea Sessions, alongside a fourteen piece all star band including Niamh Parsons and Damien Dempsey.
She is also an award winning playwright, with her stage play "Intemperance" receiving a 5 star review in the Guardian. Her play with songs, "The Singer", was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in November 08 and she co-composed the soundtrack to her short film, "Monkey Love", broadcast on Channel 4 in September 2009.
Lizzie Nunnery will be returning to play at the View Two Gallery for Liverpool Acoustic Live for the first time since our very first event in February 2009, and we're looking forward to hearing songs from her up-coming new album, along with old favourites.
Wolverhampton's Dan Whitehouse writes music steeped in timeless roots traditions, laced with lyrical twists that narrate modern life. Following on from his 3 EPs (The Balloon, The Bubble, The Box), his eponymous debut album is acoustic at heart, sensitively embellished with a creative band of musicians who add their distinctive sounds to Dan's muse.
"Sensational...if this track had Peter Gabriel's name on the sleeve it would be hailed as a major return to form... deserves a lot of respect" TOM ROBINSON BBC 6 MUSIC
Dayve Dean is a singer/songwriter based in Cheshire, similar in style to acts such as Crowded House and David Gray, the music falls somewhere between pop, folk and indie. Dayve has two albums to his name, the most recent on being Octagon featuring backing vocals from Thea Gilmore.
The Science Of The Lamps was discovered by Kaya in a restaurant in Prague December 2010, she just didn't know what it was yet. Since then the sounds have gradually been shaped in collaboration with Greta Core and Ben Power to create audiovisual expressions of emotions and impression.
Inspired by poetry, film scores, Norwegian folk music, rock, industrial sounds, nature, wine, flamenco, slam poetry, soul, folk, rhythm 'n' blues, drum 'n' bass, music boxes, metal, goth and whisky... or whatever comes out when they come together.
'With three beautiful female backing vocalists Kaya's songs have an almost burlesque European feel to them, recalling the gruffness of Jacques Brel played out all in front of projections of Wonderwoman.' Peter Guy - Getintothis
