Acoustica featuring: THE DU-RELL FAMILY // LANA MACIVER // WILL STAPLETON // JESS REID // ARGOH
Tonight at The Spice of Life:
The Du-Rell Family:
The Du-Rell family find beauteous and biting murder-country harmonies between the slap of a lover’s hand and the cock of the answering shotgun, twixt the kaleidoscope of the blood-sprayed tub and the sweet smell of someone simmering on the stove. Songs to make Nick Cave queasy, Tom Waits waver and Hank Williams beg to come back and score some stash.
“……. rattling, rolling, snake-wrestling anthems travel through your ears. It's opium, it's Mazzy Star, it's Dolly Parton on toast... and they're rather fantastic." (Artrocker Magazine)
Lana MacIver is a young singer/songwriter and filmmaker living and working in London. She has been a keen observer and commentator on human behaviour from a very young age having grown up with people from all over the world when she lived in Nicosia and Beirut. Using the piano as her main instrument of choice, Lana's songs are filled with satirical lyrics, mixed in with blues, show tunes and jazz melodies.
She is a captivating and engaging solo performer, her songs full of subtle irony and passion about seemingly humdrum events. In Lana's world events such as the loss of a lighter or a late night bus trip become darkly comic metaphors.
Will Stapleton is a singer songwriter and currently lives in London.
He performs as a solo artist and is also the singer with the alternative rock two piece band Arrows of Time.
In 2015 Will toured the UK supporting 80's band Level 42 playing his solo music in such venues as Birmingham Symphony Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic and London's Royal Albert Hall.
In 2016 he again was offered to support Level 42 across the UK but this time with his band Arrows of Time.
A singer song-writer her work is well crafted and often beautiful.
