On a windy bank holiday weekend we met with Icelandic artist Sóley, who was playing in the UK as part of her European tour.
We recorded this short session outside of Holy Trinity Church, right before her performance there as part of the citywide festival Live At Leeds
Hot Feet performed their wonderful song Pine Needle Blues
for us, carefully tucked away in an empty room near the dark arches in Leeds city centre..
They played against distant sounds of overhead trains and passing traffic just before their show at the Holy Trinity Church.
Yann Tiersen passed through Leeds last October, part of his UK Skyline
tour. We were lucky enough to do a quick session with him between sound checks, before he performed at The Brudenell Social Club later that day.
Mexico Project Space
, where the session was recorded, turned out to be the perfect venue for Yann's bright and ethereal performance of Monuments
WE WERE PROMISED JETPACKS
We met Adam from We Were Promised Jetpacks last October, before he performed at The Brudenell Social Club.
He gave us a fantastic acoustic take on Pear Tree
, from the band's latest album In the Pit of the Stomach
THE TRAVELLING BAND
Mancunian folk band The Travelling Band were in Leeds earlier this month, playing at the Brudenell as part of their UK tour following the release of their latest album Screaming is Something
We met them at the band stand in Burley Park, where they gave us a fantastically harmonious performance of Battle Scars
