In February 2011, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Ana Silvera wrote and performed a seven part song cycle with the Roundhouse Experimental Choir for three successive, sold out nights in the Roundhouse Studios entitled ‘Oracles’. Port Magazine premiered a film documenting the making of the event dir. by Kate Church, formerly of the South Bank Show. Ana repeated the perfomance of ‘Oracles’ in Feb 2012, this time selling out the main stage in a joint headline show with Imogen Heap. Ana brought the Estonian Television Girls Choir to sing with her and the event was streamed by the Guardian Newspaper website.
On top of these incredible performances, Ana’s debut album ‘The Aviary’ is now released in the UK via Karamel Music Collective. Recorded in New York with Maxim Moston (Antony and the Johnsons, Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed) and produced by Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson) in New York and Ray Singer (Peter Sarstedt, Joan Armatrading, Japan) in London.
Alexander’s Festival Hall
Alexander’s Festival Hall are purveyors of timeless, broken, nightclub-tinged, electronic balladry.
Currently promoting their debut single “Upturned”, a wistful combination of smouldering electronics and a heartwarmingly classic sensibility. They’ll be bringing equal doses of pop and heartbreak to the Union Chapel.
