Melting Vinyl presents... THE STAVES + CHRISTOF + ZOE BROWNRIGG Proud Brighton Ballroom, 83 St Georges Road, Brighton, BN2 1EF Tel: 01273 605789 Tickets: £7.50 adv./ £8.50 on the door.

Having recently been hand picked to perform with BBC Sound Winner Michael Kiwanuka, provided backing vocals for albums by Tom Jones and Fionn Regan, and toured with the likes of Willy Mason, Josh Ritter, James Vincent McMorrow, and Mt. Desolation, among others, these three Watford sisters are in real demand at present, and their schedule’s only going to get busier once their debut album is released this year. Produced by the legendary Glyn and Ethan Johns (whose combined credits include the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Ray LaMontagne, and Laura Marling to name but a few), The Staves’ album is a brilliant showcase of their talents. A melding of still, bright English folk and sublime West Coast pop, their music is awe-inspiringly beautiful live, as on record. Make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to catch this intimate performance – there won’t be too many more in the months to come, we can guarantee! Check our their stunning recent single, Mexico, here! ‘Beautiful harmonies are given the space to soar over unadorned acoustic guitar… Great potential.’ For Folk’s Sake ‘Although the ethereal delicacy of Mexico cuddles the packed venue with its simple lyrical melody, there’s a liquor swigging edge. They’re not merely nice sisters singing ditties — there’s a down to earth Watford drawl amid the beauty of Icarus’ ebbing harmonies, giving a natural credibility which folk often lacks.’ Londonist www.thestaves.com www.meltingvinyl.co.uk

"About the biggest piece of local music news recently is that Union Music Store have set up their own label, and are in talks to get a distribution deal. The label’s first big discovery is a local 18-year-old singer-songwriter. Zoe Brownrigg’s EP will be the second release on the label. Her first record is a lovely and immensely promising folk record. (Zoe) has a rich, soft voice, and plays guitar nicely, accompanied by Sam Allan on banjo and mandolin. Her lyrics are refreshingly abstract..."
