Love Thy Neighbour Records is proud to be releasing as its inaugural release 'And Blood And Air' by the wonderful Abi Wade. As a reflection of how excited we are to be doing this we decided to put on a free show with a selection of artist supporting chosen by the young lady herself.
Abi Wade (cello.box.voice) 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 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.
'Her one-woman band employs on ingenious ways to play the cello and a single pedal-controlled beat to create the sparse backdrop upon which her powerful voice floats..' 'le cool london'
