Event description
An intimate evening of piano-driven songs from singer-songwriter CN Lester

About this event

"Atmospheric, emotional music." - The Advocate

"Faultless" - DIVA

"Lester not only navigates the varied musical styles with ease, but also draws them atmospherically into an interiorised, private arena." - The Stage

Making music is what gets me through the darkest times of the year - so please join me for an hour of song on the evening of January 30th. I'll be playing numbers from my previous albums, previews of my work-in-progress, and covers of my (and your) favourite artists.

The pandemic has been a bizarre time to be a musician - a combination of some of my most high profile work to date (playing The Arts Club, returning to The Barbican, broadcasting internationally) - and having to go long stretches without collaborations, performances, and live audiences. I wouldn't be able to get through it without all the time at my piano - I hope you can share some of that time with me.

“…a powerful combination of intensely personal lyrics, CN’s skill at the piano and an ethereal voice. The musical arrangements are moving and immersive, the words deeply poetic – elusive and allusive – offering something new on each occasion; it is rare to find lyrics of this depth and quality. Aether is an album from an artist who is not only an incredibly talented singer and pianist but also someone aware of the power and subtlety of language.” - Polari Magazine
