Summer Series at Somerset House: Anna Calvi + Cold Specks
This July will see the much anticipated return of one of London's must-see events of the festival season, Summer Series at Somerset House.
Set in the spectacular courtyard of one of London's most celebrated historic buildings, Summer Series at Somerset House is a wonderfully unique event in the Summer's live music calendar. This year the programme runs from 7th to 17th July.
See www.somersethouse.org.uk/music for further information.
One of the most genuine artists to come out of London, Anna Calvi's blend of dark atmospheric romantic pop has already caught the attention of London's elite labels and promoters, and also of Dave Okumu of The Invisible with whom she recorded 'No More Words'. Anna is currently recording her much anticipated debut album in a dark underground basement using her trademark Telecaster guitar, vintage harmonium, and layers of choral like vocals and violins. Her intense mesmerising live performances also showcase her fiercely provocative and mastery electric guitar work continue to win over new audiences, supremely backed by Daniel Maiden-Wood on drums and Mally Harpaz on percussion / harmonium. She has already supported The Golden Silvers (XL Recordings), The Invisible (Accidental Records), Laurel Collective (Domino Records), and Kaki King to name a few.

Cold Specks is Al Spx from Etobicoke, Canada, who now lives in London. Describing her sound as ‘Doom Soul’, Cold Specks music is steeped in the musical traditions of the Deep South. Citing the Lomax Field Recordings and James Carr as influences, along with Bill Callahan and Tom Waits, Al has a voice that evokes the ‘spirit feel’ of Mahalia Jackson and the visceral tones of Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Cold Specks sparse arrangements and chaingang rhythms stop you dead in your tracks.
