This weeks Nest Collective Hour will be hosted by Jamie Doe (The Magic Lantern) who will be bringing you a great choice of tunes as well as featuring the talented Abi Wade in session who is mind-blowingly great!
Abi Wade (cello.box.voice) is a Musical collaboration between limbs, strings and vocal chords. Her music is seemingly and seamlessly sewn together, each beat, melody and bass line put exactly in its place, to create songs that pull the heart strings and a performance that will beguile and intrigue.
The cello, uniquely utilised is the backbone to the four songs that comprise her And Blood And Air EP a set that strikes the listener with a singular blow, soft but undeniably affecting. Carved with a uniquely tailored blade it is hard to liken her to any former artist, but similarities have been drawn to the independently distinct Arthur Russell, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush.
“..beautiful music characterised by stripped back instrumentation, compelling harmonies and haunting voice brings to mind artist such as Regina Spector and Kate Bush…released through Love Thy Neighbour Records, formed by Daniel Copeman of Esben & the Witch. The track ‘Stability’ hints at amazing things to come.” The Great Escape Festival
