Wasp Summer News + Shows
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, plena utilis notitia de musicus ‘, vocatus’ siren aestas.

Greetings, dearhearts. I return from my hibernation with new songs and some very interesting concerts in the city of Berlin. Living, as I do, in one of the singer-songwriter capitals of the world, I’m really fortunate to encounter a wide variety of good work on a monthly, even weekly, basis.

Even as I’ve become more involved in hosting events here with the Sofa Salon house concert series, and the upcoming Showcase! and One on One! events I’m co-producing with Jenn Kelly from anti-folk festival Everyone is from Somewhere, my own writing has been turning away to a harder, darker sound, especially now I’m fronting a three-piece band and leading on guitar.

I hear walls of noise, people. Walls of noise! Which is why the next few shows will be interesting for me as I explore band-specific material in a solo setting. Please come and watch me. I will be working very hard.

If you’re not on the Sofa Salon or Headful of Bees collective e-mail lists, I’d love you to know about the Showcase! and One on One shows. With Showcase! Jenn and I are simply hosting four of Berlin’s best musicians, Elyas Khan, Phia, Tomi Simatupang and Roland Satterwhite on Thursday 21 February at the English Theatre Berlin. I promise they will blow your mind.

The One on Ones are quite special. Two performers will have the small dressing rooms at the English Theatre Berlin. They will write all their songtitles on playing cards. You pay your 5€, pick a playing card for each performer and they give you an utterly unique One on One performance of that random song. Email me back if you want information on performer dates, times or the concept. It’s on both days of the Expat Expo Markt, Saturday 23 and Sunday 24, 12:00 – 16:00. I’ll be performing for a couple of hours over the weekend alongside Jenn and an amazing bunch of Berlin-based folk.

The shows are listed in this email or you can see them on my website, but here is the Facebook event for the February 12 show at Das Hotel in Kreuzberg where I’ll be rocking Tuesday night with two sets of new material. And here is the Bad Lip Reading version of Beyonce’s Presidential Inauguration national anthem. You’re welcome.
