Rooted singer-songwriter with a stark modern edge
Cellist, singer and songwriter Midori Jaeger has paved her own intricate and intriguing soundworld with pizzicato cello riffs and serene vocals gliding through warm, groove-led songs.
After taking a degree in classical cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Midori has performed as a band member with the likes of Ex:Re, Jocelyn Pook, Joseph Lawrence & the Garden, Seven Eyes and Heather Nova.
Now as an artist in her own right, Midori creates music whose influences range from James Taylor to John Martn, Ella Fitzgerald and J.S. Bach, earning comparisons to Esperanza Spalding and Joni Mitchell.
Midori’s debut single Breeze dropped in November 2019 and is the first track from her EP look at us which was recorded with full band in one day, and is due for release in February 2020.
An acoustic artist .... Beautifully crafted and delicate songs ......
