St John Sessions in association with NTS and BleeD
Lonnie Holley returns to London after a landmark 2013, which saw a sold out show at Cafe Oto and his ‘Just Before Music/ Keeping a Record of It’ ending up on many end of year lists, including the the no 1 spot over on The Vinyl Factory’s comprehensive run down.
“Simply put, no other artist caught our attention from the off this year quite like Lonnie Holley. Moving and deeply visceral, both of these records showcase the 63-year old visual artist and musician reveling in the freedom of uninhibited expression that circulates on a bed of New Age synths, lo-fi percussion and treated guitars. Despite undeniable sonic and aesthetic connections to Sun Ra and Arthur Russell, Lonnie Holley’s music is a law unto itself, with the inimitable blues orator free-forming at its core.”
