JULIA HOLTER+ JESSIE REID

*Due to unforeseen circumstances this show has moved from The Glee Club to The Castle & Falcon. All tickets remain valid and all timings remain the same*

“On her fifth album, Aviary, the composer and singer Julia Holter creates songs that swirl together centuries of classical and modern approaches: electronics, Minimalism, orchestral arrangements, medieval troubadour songs, piano ballads, chamber-pop, lullabies, collages, diaristic fragments, philosophical musings, open questions, encoded messages and surreal dream logic. It’s a compendium of mysteries” – The New York Times

“Dense, sprawling, and hugely varied across its 90-minute length, Julia Holter’s Aviary is an art-pop album that unapologetically puts the emphasis on art. Like Robert Wyatt, Laurie Anderson, or Scott Walker, Holter’s music is so idiosyncratic and instantly identifiable that it could come from no one else, and her admirable commitment to the form and structure of a double-album-sized idea leads to a work that is challenging and rewarding in equal measure.” – Pitchfork Albums of the Year

Julia Holter released her fifth album last October via Domino, the dazzling, critically beloved Aviary. An epic journey through what Holter describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world”; it is full of startling turns and thrilling instrumental arrangements whilst still clinging to a sense of radical hope, even in its most sombre moments.

Julia Holter confirms additional July Tour Dates in support of Aviary, following Pitchfork Music Festival appearance, European Tour and Festival Dates.

Holter is pleased to confirm these additional tour dates in support of Aviary with her 6-piece band—Corey Fogel (percussion, vocals), Andrew Jones (bass), Dina Maccabee (violin/viola, vocals, electronics), Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet, flugelhorn, electronics), Tashi Wada (bagpipe, synth). Following dates in Europe that will include many festival appearances (Primavera Sound, Best Kept Secret, Field Day, Halfway, Roskilde), Julia Holter will bring the Aviary band to many places for the first time on the heels of her July performance at Pitchfork Music Festival, including stops in Nashville, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Santa Fe and Tijuana.

Shropshire born singer-songwriter Jessie Reid, weaves impressive fingerstyle guitar playing together with soulful, emotive vocal melodies. Having released two demo singles earlier this year, she caught the attention of music journalists and was subsequently shortlisted for the Glastonbury 2019 Emerging Talent competition. Her innovative, folk-influenced songwriting is said to enchant audiences, drawing comparisons with artists such as Ben Howard, Lucy Rose and fingerstyle guitarist Andy Mckee. Over the past year, Jessie has supported acts such as Seafret, Dan Owen, Ciaran Lavery, Bryde and Brooke Bentham whilst also enjoying regular Sofar Sound appearances across Europe and South America. Jessie’s demo singles received support from Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music and on BBC Introducing. She has recently received a grant from the Alan Surtees Trust that will enable her to release her debut EP later this year. Jessie will be playing at a number of UK festivals this summer in preparation for the EP release.

Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6 Music): “delicious grooving guitar and delicate textured vocals… we await news of further releases with bated breath”
