Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit + Marika Hackman
After a two-year hiatus from the live circuit, Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit confirm an October headline tour.
Johnny and long-time collaborator / best friend Adam Beach (The Sussex Wit) release their third record, 'Country Mile', in September. The theme for the album is one of journeying, with the way as a teacher: a 'Country Mile' being an indefinite distance. The allegory is a through line for the record with each song making up the different elements of a life seen as one journey. They stand as a map or constellation; the 'journey' under observation includes those of the Earth, the Moon, the Sun and the stars.
'A true one-off, listening to his songs is the only way to discover how talented this boy is.' - Transgressive Records.
Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit tour dates
Marika's music channels something very different to the happy-clappy nature of recent folk. Hers is a far more potent vision in the lineage of Syd Barrett, but presented by an enigmatic beauty with a striking vocal delivery more akin to that of Nico deftly exploring an unsmiling bereft landscape. Intrigue is at the heart of Marika's music, but there's something gloriously attainable about her as an artist, and her commitment to touring and meeting with a receptive audience who are searching for the very same antidotes to the challenges of modern life.
