Hiss Golden Messenger (Solo) + Olivia Chaney on Wednesday 11th December 2019
Describing the Durham-based Hiss Golden Messenger is like trying to grasp a forgotten word: It’s always on the tip of your tongue, but hard to speak. Songwriter and bandleader M.C. Taylor’s music is at once familiar, yet impossible to categorize: Elements from the American songbook provide the bedrock for Taylor’s existential ruminations about parenthood, joy, hope, and loneliness that offer fully engaged contemporary commentary on the present. And then there’s an indescribable spirit and movement: Hiss Golden Messenger’s music grooves. There’s nothing else quite like it.
For over ten years, Taylor has spearheaded this prolific, perpetually evolving group. He’s toured and recorded relentlessly, earning devotees along the roads, deep in festival pits, and across the seas, delivering earnest performances that morph from jammy freakout to private prayer in a matter of measures.
Now he'll be live in Birmingham for a very special solo performance of Hiss Golden Messenger's most loved tracks.
Support comes from Olivia Chaney
Music Genres: Country/Americana, Indie
