Following their South Africa tour, don’t miss Oystercatcher’s debut Birmingham show, forming part of a UK tour in support of their latest release – Dear Katie.
Oystercatcher is a music collective based in Manchester. At its core are vocals and bass duo Caitlin Laing and Tom Chapman, but their philosophy is to make each live performance unique by constantly varying line-ups and arrangements. They use their freedom as arrangers to explore different sound-worlds in the studio, braving unorthodox techniques to create recordings that have a separate identity to their live performances.
Rosie Tee is a songwriter, composer and performer based in Birmingham. With an innovative, atmospheric blend of electronic, jazz, classical and pop, Rosie’s sound has been dubbed a ‘grown-up brand of art-pop’ by The Unsigned Guide. Hailed as ‘transcendent’ and ‘genre-defying’, her contemporary approach to songwriting straddles the contrasting worlds of alt-pop, rising UK Jazz and& contemporary classical. Colour and image are at the centre of Tee’s lyrical writing, depicting imagined scenes and scenarios. Her sound is inspired by that of Laura Mvula, Björk and Anna Meredith.
A sense of menace combined with smokey vocal tones make Eloise’s performance one not to be missed. Expect explosive songs arranged with a stripped back piano accompaniment at this one off and intimate night.
