Bexhill treasure Music’s Not Dead has not been resting on its laurels lately but brings to local fans a veritable cavalcade of musical delight.
Hannah Peel will perform at the De La Warr Pavilion on Saturday November 14 from 7.30pm - tickets £9.50.
Since Hannah first came to recognition with her mesmerising covers of 80’s classic Cocteau Twins, Soft Cell, and New Order in the EP Rebox, her solo career has followed an increasingly electronic direction with the stunning analogue beauty of Fabricstate last year.
As well as putting the finishing touches to her new solo album Awake But Always Dreaming, Hannah’s just released Rebox 2 on the music box which includes covers of ‘Pale Green Ghosts’ by John Grant and ‘Heaven, How Long’ with East India Youth. She toured with East India Youth in 2015 after scoring and playing strings on his new Culture Of Volume album.
Small Town Jones will perform the day after, Sunday November 15, at Music’s Not Dead in Devonshire Road.
Starting at 3pm this is a free instore gig.
The last couple of years have proved promising for Devon based singer songwriter Small Town (Jim) Jones. Having provoked numerous great reviews including a four-star review in Q magazine Jim is making some noticeable waves. He is becoming more widely known after the title track of his last album Freight Ships was picked up and was played on BBC R2’s Dermot O Leary show which led to a live Saturday Session.
Small Town Jones continues to build on this and making more opportunities playing numerous gigs around the UK as well as returning to the inkwell and studio for the impending release (Autumn/Winter 2015) of the new album Sky Down To The Ground. The first single from the new recording Night Full Of Ghosts has already received a great response with airplay on national radio.
His honest style of songwriting coupled with the intense and soulful acoustic sound have earned him praise from the likes of such folks as acclaimed singer songwriters Ray Davies and Willy Vlautin as well as Ivor Novello Award winner Iain Archer.
Ahead of all that on Wednesday November 11, from 7.30pm, Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou will play live at The Albatross Club (tickets £7).
The popular husband and wife duo returns from tours with Ron Sexsmith and Jools Holland to play this special show. Having just released their fourth album produced by Ethan Jones “Expatriot” to universal acclaim they’re heading back to Bexhill.
