8.30pm Hailey Beavis
The tradition of folk and storytelling is evident in Beavis’s stand-out lyrics, which are full of narrative, imagery and description. However, her musical backdrop has been remoulded substantially. Over the years of live performances, experimenting and collaborating with other musicians, Beavis’s songs have evolved into something that is indubitably pop in spirit. Though guitar is still her foundation, her live shows are
punctuated with talking toys, glockenspiels and layers of looped harmonies. She is always looking to marry her many layers of influence. She explains, “I love a sassy hook, I love that I can write about something so heavy and then add a synth part that sounds like cartoon aliens landing on earth”.
An accomplished visual artist as well as musician, it’s safe to say Hailey Beavis is a polymath. Her signature is on everything she puts her hand to. From hand drawn CD sleeves and zines to vivid murals and huge textile collages that she often hangs behind her at gigs. ‘Whatever You Feel I Do Too’ is her debut 2020 EP which you can find here, a worthy introduction to her rich and multi-layered inner life, which will be followed this year with an album.
Tummyache is an alternative rock project created by Songwriter/Producer Soren Bryce. The project is named after one of the side effects of severe physical anxiety. Bryce has been creating and releasing music for the past six years Under her own name. Tummyache is manifested from Bryce’s need to explore a new set of emotions she experienced while living in Brooklyn, New York. The debut EP “Humpday,” out November 1 on Poor Man Records, is an honest and aggressive self-dive into a myriad of intra/interpersonal issues; as well as a reflection of the human condition through the lens of absurdism. Songs like “Machine” and “Commonplace” are a cry to understand a life without intrinsic meaning, while “Median” and title track “Humpday” surrender to the existential anxiety in an attempt to be comforted by self-made hope. “In Between” is a bitter-sweet outline of Bryce seeking to simply ‘feel better’.
