Blind Dog Studio Presents:

Brainchild of Australian James Marples (Colonial Sun ) and multi instrumentalist Mally Harpaz (Anna Calvi, Hazel Iris, Eran Karniel, Jessica Lauren).

A collective of phenomenal musicians perform, curate and invite special guest for a night of quite simply beautiful music and compelling compositions...


Mally Harpaz »
Multi instrumentalist Mally Harpaz (Anna Calvi, Hazel Iris, Colonial Sun, Jessica Lauren, Eran Karniel) performs her original compositions joined by a small number of phenomenal musicians and special guests. These distinct pieces were mainly written as part of a collaboration with award-winning video artist Clara Aparicio Yoldi. Mally’s reverence for the profound creates mysterious melodic lines and shares a luscious ambience with other contemporary pioneers such as Steve Reich, Max Richter, and Nils Frahm.


Colonial Sun »
The musical moniker of James Marples, Australian singer-songwriter whose dark balladry has drawn comparisons with Howe Gelb, Sun Kil Moon and Mark Lanegan.

Emotionally lucid and at times surreal, these songs draw on imagery from the Australian landscape to the decaying monuments of Empire.


Bat And Ball »
London-based Bat and Ball make 'anxiety pop'. Their fiercely independent approach to songwriting is a glistening platform for Abi Sinclair's defiant and unconventional feminist lyrics.

The band have a strong commitment to the tenets of pop music but refuse to over-simplify or fall into clichés within their charismatic arrangements.

Music for both the head and the heart.


Independent Venue Week »
CELEBRATING THE SPIRIT OF INDEPENDENCE & CULTURE OF LIVE MUSIC

Independent Venue Week is a 7 day celebration of small music venues around the UK and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.

These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Independent Venue Week brings together these venues along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs at the end of January.

These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in this country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.
