S.CAREY + SUPPORT

NORWICH : Arts Centre

WED 21ST MAY, 2014 Doors 8pm

Between the time touring and recording with lauded US indie-folkers Bon Iver, for whom he plays drums and also supporting vocals, Sean Carey also finds the place to branch out and make his own beguiling music as S.Carey.

With obvious influences from, and with his first album All We Grow likened to, musicians as varied as Sufjan Stevens, Steve Reich, Sigur Ros and Bill Evans - the distinguishing characteristic of his sound is its elementality; using only a piano, guitar, and drums he falls somewhere near folk, but yet far into his own style.

‘An intriguing ambient/chamber/indie/folk affair on which his high, airy vocals nestle in warm ambient glows, simple piano and guitar figures, or purring minimalist settings of reeds, murmurs and tuned percussion’ (**** The Independent)
‘Carey creates a sound that is simultaneously austere and lush, pitting each instrument against the others’ (Pitchfork)

‘Hopefully, S. Carey will have the time to pursue this solo project with the same fervour as his work with Bon Iver: it would be a crime if this were his only album’ (BBC)

£15.00 + £1.50 Booking fee = £16.50
