High & Lonesome are very pleased to announce they will be bringing the hugely talented Andy Shauf to Oporto in September ahead of his performance at End Of The Road Festival.
 
Andy Shauf is a storyteller, a singer of heartbreak and regrets, isolation and loneliness, reflecting his prairie surroundings in Regina, Canada. Meticulously written over four years, Shauf’s The Bearer of Bad News is a warm and welcoming album, bathed in weathered piano, dampened drums, softly-strummed guitars and clarinet, which lends its unique timbre to frequently brighten – or hauntingly underscore – the songs’ darker undercurrents.
 
+ very special guests Sam Airey & Harkin (Katie from sky larkin/Wild Beasts/Sleater-Kinney)

LA SHARK | Wednesday 9th September | Oporto

They will be touring their new album 'Imaginary Music.' Check out their new single 'World Wide Babes,' here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJDKKvVjJ-0

Imaginary Music is the long-awaited debut album from La Shark, released April 27th on Tape Music. On Imaginary Music La Shark fuse elements of pop, funk, art rock and post punk indie into a their own distinctive, jaw-dropping sound.

Based in south-east London and compromising of N.H.A. Buxton on Drums, Samuel Geronimo Deschamps on Vocals, Sami El-Enany on Keys, Benjamin Francis Markham on Guitar, and Lou-Lou Maynard on Bass, La Shark have a sense of adventure and lust for the unknown that is rare in an era of career-ist artists.

La Shark’s incendiary and unpredictable live shows have earned them a cult following and comparisons to Faith No More and Red Hot Chili Peppers. They have toured with Cibelle, Mumford & Sons, and The Maccabees, leading Felix White to tell the NME “I hope one day the world can appreciate how amazing La Shark are. We need bands like them”.

La Shark have previously released a series of attention-grabbing singles, including the Radio 1 playlisted tracks Magazine Cover and A Weapon. Imaginary Music is the band’s first full studio album, and follows La Shark Yearbook, a 3 x CD collection of the band’s music from 2006 – 2013, which came packaged with a handmade journal telling the bands story in their own words.

The first single from the album is the AA side AAA / World Wide Babes, also out 27th April.

“Noisy-brilliant. La Shark are all kinds of ace...”Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music.

“In a world far too full of predictable, paint by numbers music, La Shark are the breath of fresh air that comes along far too rarely. Magical, messed up stuff” Music Week

The past few years have seen Daniel Pearson quietly build a reputation as being one of the best new singer-songwriters around. Blending elements of indie rock, country, soul and blues his immediately accessible songs deliver the emotional connection and honesty that only instinctively great songwriting can provide.

Daniel’s soulful vocals and finely-crafted songs have found themselves on the airwaves of BBBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, XFM, Amazing Radio and Australia’s biggest radio station Triple J. Writers for Uncut Magazine, Drowned In Sound, Shout 4 Music, Pop Matters, R2 Magazine, AllGigs, Sabotage Times, For Folks Sake and No Depression have been quick to celebrate the arrival of a new voice and have drawn comparisons to Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen in a series of rave reviews for his two albums Satellites and Mercury State.

Already a veteran of rock n' roll and punk bands by his early-twenties, he had toured up and down the UK and released various singles and EPS before going solo in 2010. After deciding to maintain his artistic independence away from the machinations of a larger label, Daniel has become a very successful example of the new music industry – an artist that maintains control over every aspect of his career, has a real connection with a loyal and growing fanbase and competes for press and radio coverage with acts with huge marketing budgets through the simple strength of his music.

A compelling live performer, Pearson has shared a stage with acts like Michael Kiwanuka, One Night Only, The Bluetones, Willy Mason and Josephine as well as playing a string of headline dates of his own in the UK and USA. In an age of instant stardom, talent shows and endless media hyperbole, he is proving himself as a genuine talent built for the long haul.

+ support from Alex Gavaghan (The Cubical) & Danny Aspinall.
