Anna Calvi

11 Feb 2015

In the four years since the release of her eponymous debut, singer, songwriter and guitarist Anna Calvi has earned two Mercury Music Prize nominations and a BRIT nomination has collaborated with David Byrne, Marianne Faithfull and Morrissey, has won the admiration of the likes of NickCave, Karl Lagerfeld and Brian Eno, the latter describing her as ‘the biggest thing since Patti Smith’.

Her second album One Breath was a more reflective record than her first, an emotional journey through an expansive musical palette. ‘I wanted to explore the feeling of being out of control, and how this can be very scary and yet thrilling at the same time,’ Calvi says. ‘It’s always important to me that the music tells the story as much as the lyrics.’

Known for her dark, romantic approach to songwriting, visually compelling live performances and prodigious guitar playing, don’t miss a dramatic performance from one of UK music’s brightest stars.
