SBD presents: ALESSI’S ARK
Friday October 11th
It’s been a gradual burning, shimmering process for the remarkable Alessi’s Ark. A name and cinematic voice which has been built upon years of experimentation, travel, resilience and triumph. Alessi has since toured extensively in the UK, Europe, US and Japan in support of her releases with M.Ward, Jenny Lewis, Mumford & Sons, Laura Marling, Sharon Van Etten and John Grant, amongst others.
Alessi’s Ark returns with ‘Sacred’, a track that was recorded in a cabin on the South East coast with additional recording at Arch 79 in East London. The two very different environments are reflected in the song, which discusses the pushing and pulling of love and relationships and is a kind of prayer for the ability to balance all with grace.
After playing numerous highly sought-after venues and festivals, Alessi’s journey continues to blossom. With her new single set to be released September 27th and performance lined across the UK in October and November, 2019 is looking to be a year in which the Ark will take on new and greater heights.
PLUS! A trio of supports that will knock your socks off
Scottish-born, Northampton-based Katie Malco writes music that sits somewhere between an aching, serene sadness and a hopeful determination. She lays her past out on the table for all to see, exposed with twitching nerves. Armed with only an old telecaster that's seen better days, a piano and her voice, Malco has toured the UK and mainland Europe extensively, both solo and with a supergroup live band of ex-Reuben / Tubelord / Tellison members. The spell-binding artist also recently embarked upon a UK tour with Tennessee's Julien Baker (Matador), playing a sold-out London Union Chapel, as well as appearing at SXSW in Austin TX this year.
The singer-songwriter has recently been in the studio writing and recording her forthcoming debut album.
Northampton-born singer-songwriter who music is ‘Heaven’ly to say the least.
The 19 year-old Towcester-area singer-songwriter has recently released her debut album ‘Personal’, and it’s nothing short of stunning.
