An Evening with Fenne Lily, Paul Thomas Saunders, Sivu & Siv Jakobsen
An Evening with Fenne Lily, Paul Thomas Saunders, Sivu & Siv Jakobsen' … A rare opportunity to enjoy a touring community of singer-songwriters performing with the spirit of collaboration … and on the opening night of their UK tour together!
Sivu’s Sweet Sweet Silent album is released in July and features the single Lonesome. He hails from St Ives (with a Finnish name), counts Frank Sinatra as an influence and his songs have moved in the same musical landscape as Wild Beats and Arcade Fire. He has worked with Alt-J’s producer and toured with London Grammar and The Staves. Reviews have included "Sivu looks faith, mortality and self-doubt squarely in the eye … sensational" Sunday Times Culture, "A singular talent ... A feast of ideas" Q and "Irresistible" NME.
Paul Thomas Saunders new single Holding On For Love has been described as “Captivating.” by The Sunday Times and “Extraordinary” by The Guardian. He has drawn comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Bon Iver and Richard Hawley.
Siv Jakobsen’s single Like I Used To is also out now … she has garnered an acclaimed live reputation, receiving comparisons to Laura Marling and Ane Brun, whilst playing shows with Bear's Den, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Damien Jurado. Daytrotter for Paste Magazine commented "With each passing listen, we find ourselves falling deeper and deeper." Lauren Laverne championed her as "Beautifully atmospheric" and Clash said "There's a glacial charm to her music, a slow-moving sensibility that allows the mood, the atmosphere of each piece to subtly overwhelm."
Completing the line-up is Fenne Lily, whose single What’s Good, follows Top To Toe, her appearance at London Fashion Week and recording for Burberry. Growing up, she listened to The Velvet Underground & Nico and Joni Mitchell. She has recently toured with Charlie Cunningham and worked with 4AD’s Aldous Harding.
