Up and coming London talent confirmed to headline one-off gig with live orchestra and choir.
The Stratford-raised folk singer Denai Moore will perform this month in the next outing of The Coveryard, a series of unique gigs that take place across London and feature emerging artists alongside a 22-piece orchestra and choir.
Denai, who lists Lauryn Hill and Feist as key influences, will perform a headline set including tracks from EPs Saudade and The Lake, which was produced by Plan B. In a unique collision of genres, each track will be reworked for the bigger ensemble, including strings, brass, choir and percussion.
Support for the night will come from Sam Brookes, whose recent album Kairos was described by the Telegraph as a ‘21st century folk dream’. Brookes, who has toured with Ray Davies and Newton Faulkner, will also play alongside the chamber orchestra. As well as new versions of the artists’ own work, audience members can expect reinterpretations of familiar tracks presented by the ensemble.
Past nights have included music by Portishead, James Blake, Fleetwood Mac and Bjork.
