After a year’s hiatus, we are excited to once again be holding our annual event to welcome in the winter months. Adrian, Beth, Dan and Simon (Adrian Roye and the Exiles) present their third ‘Music For A Winter’s Night’ , this time in the stunning and intimate St Pancras Old Church. Steeped in history, this venue has also hosted artists such as Laura Marling, James Blake and offers a setting like no other.
The band will present their joint works, as well as solo projects. We’ll also be joined by two very special musical guests on the evening to perform their own works and collaborate :
The last couple of years have not been easy for singer-songwriter, classic and contemporary multi instrumentalist Raevennan Husbandes. Soon after graduating with a degree in music from Brunel in 2010 she was suddenly stricken with a rare illness resulting in blindness. Spending longer than she would have liked in recovery she decided things had to change.
With a colossal leap of faith she picked up her beloved guitar again and found herself the winner of Next Big Thing 2012! Husbandes has counted herself incredibly lucky of late – opening for Lisa Hannigan on tour in Ireland by personal invitation, and collaborating with The Unthanks soon after. 2012 saw her share the stage with legends such as Steve Tilston Newton Faulkner, Paul Kelly, Krystle Warren and former Gene frontman Martin Rossiter. She also appeared at the Country To Country Festival at The O2 Arena in March 2013 and is currently working in the studio with legendary pedal steel guitarist and producer, BJ Cole on what will be her first studio release.
We are very pleased to announce that Raevennan will also be accompanying us on the Dobro during the night.
Possessing one of the best and most memorable voices in the UK right now, ESKA weaves together diverse musical elements – hints of folk, soul, psychedelica and electronica can all be heard on ‘Gatekeeper’ – and pairs them with stirring lyrics, born from burning passion, which traverse scenes from church stories and rituals.
ESKA’s music has already created a buzz; receiving strong radio support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Lauren Laverne , Jamie Cullum and BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms.
Having built an inimitable reputation as a writer and performer through collaborations with such legends of the game as Grace Jones, Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7 and Bobby McFerrin together with performances in some of the world’s most famous venues and festivals, it’s time to discover ESKA’s own unique sound.
ESKA releases her long-awaited EP, ‘Gatekeeper’ on 20 November.
