TALITHA RISE + SPECIAL GUESTS
Talitha Rise is a songwriter and multi instrumentalist a visionary talent. Her honey vocals and mesmeric haunting style coupled with her beautiful neo-folk songs have increasingly been enrapturing and provoking deep emotional response in live audiences. Writing from a place of raw genuinity, her poetically tangible world approaches what she calls the ‘terminal condition of being alive’ armed with lullabies and battle cries hand in hand. At times heartbreaking but always hopeful.
With inspirations threading between nature, art, celtic folk, classical literature, folklore, mythology and progressive music, she has been likened to Stevie Nicks, First Aid Kit, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Kate Bush, Cocteau Twins and Mazzy Star, a mix which gives you some idea of her vocal prowess. She above all sounds uniquely and instantly recognisably like herself.
Her songs have caught the attention of Chris Difford (Squeeze) who features on her BLUE record co written and produced by drummer and musician Martyn Barker (Shriekback, Goldfrapp, Marianne Faithful). She has recorded and performed live alongside eclectic and acclaimed artists such as Juldeh Camara (Robert Plant, Justin Adams) and Henry Thomas (George Michael, Van Morrison) and opened for Renaissance and Antonio Forcoine, holding the attention of spellbound audiences at The Maltings, Haslemere Hall and St. Pancras Church in London.
Her first full album An Abandoned Orchid House is released this year and features contributions from Juldeh Camara (Riti), Peter Yates (Fields of the Nephilim) Arnulf Linder (Ed Harcourt, KT Tunstall) and award winning folk artist Kathryn Williams.
This beautiful night promises to be a deeply atmospheric night of emotional music where she will be joined by some great special guests!
