MELTING VINYL PRESENTS: HALEY BONAR + MICHAEL NAU
After two stunning sold-out shows, Canadian Haley Bonar returns to Brighton along with her recent LP Impossible Dreams (Memphis Industries). Bonar delivers her minor-key tunes and elliptical lyrics in a haunting, delicate voice, telling real stories back to us as if they were our own.
Haley has released eight more recordings to critical acclaim and mounting success: lots of touring, playing festivals, capturing awards and artist grants, inventive video productions, appearing on myriad Best-Of lists while continuing to write and perform.
Haley Bonar writes genuine, epochal and poetic tales that feel like our heartbreak, failure, frustration and joy.
Recent single Kismet Kill was A-Listed on BBC 6 Music and she gave a stunning performance on Later… With Jools Holland recently.
Support comes from
New Full Time Hobby signing Michael Nau will be supporting Haley Bonar. His LP ‘Mowing’ is out now.
“Beguiling solo journey through rootsy Americana.” “Intimate and inviting” – Q Magazine, 4*
“The songs themselves trip by with a deceptively casual air, from the drowsy jazz cadence of “Mow” to the very lovely, Lee Hazelwood-ish “The Glass” “Love Survive”, meanwhile proves that Nau knows his way around a classic pop melody” – Uncut 8/10
