Daylight Music is a dazzling idea presented by the Union Chapel to open up their amazing gothic venue to a shiny new daytime crowd and provide a rather exciting platform for artists. Produced by Arctic Circle and supported by The 405.
Anglo-Asian 7-piece Sunday Driver features vocals, sitar, tabla, guitar, harp, woodwinds, bass and drums. The band challenges generic, disposable pop and draw influences across a wide musical spectrum, from System of a Down to Judy Garland, Debussy to Ravi Shankar. Playing to audiences ranging from Asian melas and folk festivals to arts venues and Steampunk conventions, Sunday Driver's music brings diverse musical and cultural worlds together, incorporating British Raj and Victorian themes into their songs and live performance.
My Glass World
My Glass World is the crystallisation of a project that took a little while to come into being. It’s a new group comprising Jamie Telford and Dinah Beamish with songs by Jamie Telford and cello arrangements by Dinah Beamish. This is their debut performance, leading towards the release of their first album “Book One” on the Luxurynoise label this January 2012.
Half-American, half-German and raised in Northern Germany, Anja McCloskey grew up listening to her grandfather playing the accordion, picking up the instrument herself at the age of 5. Having gained a raft of experience playing with avant-garde performance orchestra The Irrepressibles and folk-rock trailblazers Haunted Stereo, with whom she composed ‘Cross the Sea,’ a Q Magazine Track of the Day, Anja released her first solo EP ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’ in 2010 on Sotones Records. This was followed by a US tour and single ‘And Her Head’ in 2011. Anja and her band are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album.
