Catch the next one:
Communion: Josh Weller + The Daturas + Natasha Haws + Garda + Alex Vargas + Lowell + The Staves + ATFL DJs
The Staves will be DJing only.
From his beginnings in 2008 as a pop-troubadour with just an acoustic guitar and the constant touring with the likes of The Noisettes, The Maccabees and Paloma Faith, to the release of his sold out 'Push E.P' in 2009, Josh Weller has become something of a cult pop-star. His big chorused pop music, with grooving drumbeats, quirky hooks and wryly observational lyrics, is carried by a voice that marries the softness of Chet Baker and the fire of a young Elvis Costello. His songs play like the idiosyncrasies, quirks and mannerisms of a script by Woody Allen. It's catchy and impassioned, it grooves like hip hop, but it's written by Josh Weller; abound with exuberant narratives, witty one liners and a stark observation about his inner-neuroses on love and life.

The Staves are three English sisters whose soaring harmonies hark back to the sweet sounds of Crosby, Stills and Nash. They mould their love of Americana and folk into finely crafted tales of love and loss with gently finger-picked guitar and ukulele, and, at the forefront - their three unique voices.
