“An astonishing vocalist of haunting emotional power” The Guardian
“..one of the most captivating unclassifiable performers on the scene” Financial Times
Hume, May and Hodgkinson
Long-term collaborators pianist Carolyn Hume and drummer Paul May are joined by Tim Hodgkinson for this one-off performance. Hume and May have been recording and performing together since 2002, releasing six albums on Leo Records.
Composer and musician Tim Hodgkinson founded Henry Cow with Fred Frith in 1968. In the late seventies he founded The Work with Bill Gilonis, Mick Hobbs and Rick Wilson. Alongside many other projects and musical explorations he wrote and conducted for the Hyperion Ensemble working with Romanian Spectralist composer Iancu Dumitrescu. “It’s anything but winsome. May looks like he could dep for any of your heavy-metal heroes and Hume’s personality and playing shine with beauty and intelligence. If you’ve never made their acquaintance before, this would be a very good place to start, without any recognition that the sound has changed more than a little. If you’re an established fan, there’s nothing to fear and everything fresh to discover.” Jazz Journal, 2020
“When Hodgkinson writes about music’s ‘inner performance’ – we feel music performing us, ‘continuously forming a new subjectivity within us from the magma of sound’ – the pieces bear him out.” Gramophone“Not only does Hodgkinson prove that a musician that’s been around the block a few times can release uncompromising music, he does so while showing that modern digital technology, when used as a tool rather than as a crutch, is a valid resource to the adventurous composer.” Exposé
Robert Storey and Maya Yianni
Robert Storey has been writing, recording and performing since the late seventies with his continuously evolving Murphy project – under the names The Murphy Federation, Murphy No Geisha, Orchestra Murphy, Miners of Banal, C Siders and others but now performs under his own name, releasing records on Arizonan label Emotional Response Records. In 2018 he released Come Up And Hear My Etchings 1986 – 2016, a compilation of work stretching over a twenty year period.
Maya Yianni started out her musical life as Little Liar when only a teenager. Her voice nods towards the late, great jazz singers that inspired her from a young age, but still sounds contemporary, with influences panning from Riot Grrl, Noise, 60’s Pop and beyond.
Her approach to songwriting is unapologetically auto-biographical and frank, and she writes to magnify both the menial and meaningful moments of her life. Her album One in Two in Four was released in 2017, and in 2021 she collaborated with Storey on his album The Eventual Window – singing on several songs on English and Spanish.
“Age has mellowed Storey’s lovelorn ballads, but not quelled his way with a live band arrangement or pithy lyric.” The Wire
