Panic Room is a new band featuring ex-members of Karnataka, Mostly Autumn and Fish's band. While the music has progressive elements it will also appeal to a much broader audience with its melodic and powerful songwriting. Rock, folk and world music influences combine in a vibrant mix to produce a unique and very individual sound.
Led by the soaring voice and magnetic stage-presence of frontwoman Anne-Marie Helder, expect music of epic grandeur, spine-tingling beauty and gutsy raw power, all delivered with the sheer passion and sense of genuine fun which has made Panic Room one of the best-loved live bands on the live music circuit today.
Luna Rossa is the stunning new acoustic project from award-winning songwriters Anne-Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards (also of Panic Room).
The debut album from Luna Rossa, 'Sleeping Pills & Lullabies', unveiled a whole new world of rootsy, raw and beautifully intimate music. Largely based around grand piano and acoustic guitar, the stripped back arrangements allow Anne-Marie’s wonderfully rich and versatile voice to take centre stage, and weave its way through an album of stunning original music.
Enhancing the instrumental palette, you will find touches of rhodes, organ, quirky samples and rhythm loops adding some grit to the mix, while the beautiful delicacy of the celtic harp, celeste, autoharp and even hand-played wine glasses add a shimmering ethereal quality to the soundscape.
