Mar 2nd: Me Lost Me, Jamie Thrasivoulou, Tom Nash, Ichabod, Matt McAteer

IEG March 2019

Me Lost Me is the solo electronic music project of Jayne Dent; a collision of thudding rhythms, lush vocal drones and haunting Melodies. Using the voice as her main instrument alongside the concertina and samplers, she electronically manipulates and loops sounds to create a unique, folk-influenced experimental pop music. Nestled among atmospheric and powerful original compositions are arrangements of traditional folk songs, beautiful and gripping in their storytelling. She has recently performed on BBC Radio 3’s Exposure, at the Manchetser Folk Horror Festival and Northern Electric Festival, as well as supporting acts as diverse as Martin Carthy and Let’s Eat Grandma. She released her debut album Arcana in November 2018, leading to Tall Bird Records stating, “If Sandy Denny and Laurie Anderson had made an album together, it might have sounded a bit like this.”

Jamie Thrasivoulou is an award-winning writer, poet & lyricist. He facilitates workshops in schools, universities, prisons, & all manner of community settings. He is the writer in residence at HMP Foston Hall & the official Derby County FC Poet. His debut collection ‘The Best Of A Bad Situation’ was published by Silhouette Press in 2017. Jamie’s second collection ‘Our Man’ will be published by Burning Eye Books in 2019. Jamie has performed all over the UK including: Outspoken at the 100 club , Verve Poetry Festival, The Everyman Theatre & The Other Place (Royal Shakespeare Venue).

Tom Nash’s debut record ‘Stories of The Screens’ revisits themes from an exhibition that he took part in at The Site Gallery in Sheffield called ‘Cutting Shapes’ which ran throughout June 2015. For the exhibition, Tom wrote three folk songs combining abstract lyricism paired with the trivial to cover the exhibitions topics. Several of these songs alongside some newer works will be performed with just voice and guitar to reveal the intricacies of harmony between the two instruments’ parts, in contrast to the fully decorated arrangements heard in the studio recordings of his debut record. With musical influences as diverse as John Lee Hooker to Anna Calvi to Philip Glass, means that when listening you can expect to be as disorientated as he is!

Joining Jayne, Jamie and Tom will be our resident genius Ichabod Wolf, fresh from the release of his magnificent debut album Carry on, Crow and recent airplay on BBC Radio 6, with DJ Steve Lamacq saying, “An amazing thing, quite stopped me in my tracks.”
