JESCA HOOP: https://jescahoop.com/

“Jesca Hoop's latest work recalls early Tori Amos in the way it radiates uncommon delicacy and steely strength” --NPR

Hoop explores a woman’s perspective in all its strength and vulnerability.” --New York Times Critics Pick

“With subtle electronic production tugging at the edges of her fingerpicked folk, the California singer-songwriter peers at the dark side of motherhood.” --Pitchfork

BIO:

Returning in support of her a hugely acclaimed fifth album, ‘Stonechild’, the California-born, UK-based singer-songwriter and guitarist Jesca Hoop remains a uniquely intriguing, idiosyncratic and compelling performer. With her roots in folk and Americana , Hoop continually pushes at the boundaries of what is possible within those traditions, creating songs that twist and turn, constantly surprising, and delightful and disturbing in equal measures.

She’s what you’d call a musician’s musician. She has written songs with Sam Beam (Iron and Wine), collaborated with Lucius and This is the Kit on Stonechild, and worked with luminaries including Peter Gabriel. And it was a phone call from UK band Elbow’s Guy Garvey that saw her move to the UK. Having worked on Stonechild with producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, This is the Kit, Aldous Harding), it’s easy to see how she’s earned so many famous fans – her beautiful songs are intricately detailed, acoustic-led pieces that teem with ideas.


KEN STRINGFELLOW: HTTP://KENSTRINGFELLOW.COM/

"Ken Stringfellow is something like power-pop royalty. Not only is he a great songwriter, responsible for half of the music of the Posies, but he's also kept his plate constantly full over the last decade, working with everyone from REM to Big Star to Scott McCaughey to Ringo Starr." -Joe Tangari (Pitchfork)

"Ken Stringfellow -- a fixture on the music landscape, indie and otherwise, since the debut of his band The Posies in 1988, Ken Stringfellow has over a quarter century of experience as a performer, composer, producer, arranger, programmer and more. In addition to his 8 albums with the Posies and 4 solo albums, Ken spent a decade touring and recording with REM; he was also involved in the rebirth of Memphis cult band Big Star, playing with Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens from the band's first reunion shows in 1993 until Chilton's death in 2010. Ken has played onstage or in studio with such artists as Neil Young, the Afghan Whigs, Mercury Rev, Thom Yorke, John Paul Jones, Patti Smith, Robyn Hitchcock, Ringo Starr, Damien Jurado, Nada Surf, Brendan Benson, Mudhoney, the Long Winters...a very long list indeed. In fact, Ken has appeared on over 250 albums (totaling 9 million sales), and performed in 94 countries." -Artist Bio


CHLOE FOY: https://chloefoy.com/

"Her huge talent lies in creating delicate yet intense atmospheres that swallow us in bliss, while her voice remains our steady link to reality." – The 405

"From the delicate guitar line to her urgent vocal, the sighing chorus in the background and the martial drums 'Oh You Are Not Well' leads with an incredible sense of purpose, with Chloe Foy taking time to place each note in exactly the right position." – CLASH

"Foy glistens with a dark, youthful honesty, full of relief." – EARMILK

Please refrain from talking or texting during the show

OTHER UNUSUAL EVENT DETAILS:

SEATING:
To create a "giant living room" effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.

We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.

For best sound, arrive early for center floor area and any area on stage not marked with signage. You can also sit all around the back of the stage if you like but sound will be a bit limited there.

QUIET POLICY:

Please actually silence all devices. Turn off vibrate, rings, etc.
If you need your phone on vibrate for specific reasons, please keep it close to you and not on a hard surface that will distract your neighbor.

If arriving late, please be advised that ushers may hold doors during each song due to acoustics of the space.


NO CAMERAS WITH MECHANICAL SHUTTERS (This goes for Press too unless approved to shoot during applause only.) That means silent digital cameras/photos are ok but we really recommend you enjoy most of the show through your own 'retina screens'.

Anyone exhibiting loud or disruptive behavior during the event will be asked to leave.

Absolutely no talking during the performances please, this room is very live acoustically and everyone will hear you. :-)

**We are unable to provide a separate soundproof room for viewing this event. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
