Morning Bride's first WHC show @ The Barrels
Morning Bride's first WHC show @ The Barrels
Last time, Morning Bride played the WHC they were showcasing songs from their long-awaited second album The North Sea Rising.  Created over three days in a basement studio beneath a ukelele shop on East London's Brick Lane, The North Sea Rising recording captures Morning Bride's continuing evolution towards a warmer and more intimate sound, allowing lead singer Amity Joy Dunn's delicate, honey-dripping voice to truly shine, and Mark James Pearson's songs to breathe more deeply.  These days a streamlined three-piece, Amity and Mark's lush harmonies blend effortlessly with Pete Bennett's trademark bottleneck and slide. Various other writers have described Morning Bride’s music as gothic Americana, off-kilter folk rock, alt-country pop and most things in between.  However, the thing about Morning Bride, for me at least, is that at the heart of their music there are some simply glorious tunes. This is why I keep inviting them back even though each time they want to make off with Guinness (the dog).

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
