New York based cellist Julia Kent is to play her only UK date of 2013 at London’s Vortex club tomorrow: Tuesday November 26. Julia released her third album Character on Leaf earlier this year. The album was recorded alone in her home studio… “I ended up thinking about the process of life,” explains Kent. “How sometimes a narrative in fiction is meant to mirror the chronology of human life, and how our lives, in a way, can resemble works of fiction, but without the possibility of controlling the outcome the way an author can.” Thus, she called the album Character, a reference to the notion of humans being characters in their own narrative.
Also on the bill is London band Madam, fronted by writer/producer Sukie Smith.
