DAN ARBORISE (live) + PAUL DALEY (DJ)
Thursday 3rd March '11
Doors 8.00pm til midnight
's sound is a mix of complex picked acoustic guitar, embellished by looping and delay effects to mesmerising effect, married to his tender and warmly affecting vocals. Compared with John Martyn and Nick Drake, Dan makes modern folk music which is in no way insipid but full of freshness...
Dan has travelled from the Scottish Borders where him and his wife grew vegetables for sustenance and collected wood for heat, via London, Edinburgh and Africa , becoming an a songwriter who has finally chosen a simple way of living, and whose songs glimmer with the warmth of hearth and home.
“A hugely atmospheric record that’s gently beguiling, with picked acoustic guitar layered to create ambient swathes of sound that engage the head and melt the heart
” - Clash
"A quiet gem... Inventive and mercurial
" - Uncut
“a singer songwriter you can truly believe in, with the spirit of Nick Drake & John Martyn giving the songs an otherness quality that genuinely summons goosebumps
” - Subba Culture
“Dan Arborise will drop your jaw with his intricate guitar lines. Then his voice will bewitch you. Quite how Arborise constructs such a thing, let alone plays it, is beyond mortal men...a little genius and a lot of soul
” - The 405
