As part of an 11-date UK tour, Laura Moody will be hitting up Bom Banes in Brighton on Thursday 2 April. It’s also one of the very first location’s she will be playing her new single Call This Time Love from her critically debut album “Acrobats”.
The phrase not your average cellist is one that applies to Laura Moody. She has received international acclaim as a member of the innovative string quartet The Elysian Quartet, and toured world-wide with the physical theatre string ensemble The Gogamogs. Beyond her pedigree she is also more than your average cellist due to her unique sound. A wildly alternative vocalist and cellist, Moody pushes boundaries while exploring the seemingly impossible possibilities of her instrument. Her career has seen her work with artists from genres as varied as folk and hip-hop, and she has blended together these varied influences. She creates emotive songs that inhabit a unique space between the contemporary avant-garde, classical music, experimental pop and singer-songwriter tradition.
At the tail end of last year, Laura sold out shows at St. Pancras Old Church and Wiltons Music Hall – for this tour she has explored more unique spaces. The specially selected locations include intimate environments such as boats, chapels, bookshops and even a laundrette. Bom Bane’s is a wonderfully ‘Brighton-y’ institution. A café/restaurant, and the brilliant owner Jane will be performing a few of her own songs with her famous mechanical hats. It’s an intimate atmosphere that will need to be booked in advance.
It promises to be a unique evening that defies musical categorisation.
