This is a rather special night for darkest Kent.
Very proud to announce we have ESKA performing here.
What they say:
“Her voice can skip and swoop like Joni Mitchell” Q ****
“This is mindblowing, stop-in-your-tracks stuff” Mix Mag, Tune Of The Month 9/10
“Only a couple of times a decade does a new artist come along who so impresses that I find myself getting excited about what they’ll do next, even as I’m still assimilating their debut” The Independent on Sunday 5/5
“So distinctive and confessional is Eska’s voice that she’s created a British pastoral music that defies classification” Uncut 8/10
“I can’t remember when I last heard anything this enchanting or inventive. Her array of reggae, jazz, soul, choral, electronica, folk and classical influences collide to create a sound that is hers alone” The Guardian
ESKA, one of music’s best kept secrets, released her self-titled debut album to critical acclaim last year. Having built an inimitable reputation as a writer and performer through collaborations with such legends of the game as Grace Jones, Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7 and Bobby McFerrin together with performances in some of the world’s most famous venues and festivals, Eska’s own and unique sound has arisen and taken flight with her highly anticipated solo debut.
In the run up to the album’s release exclusive premieres were hosted by the likes of Noisey, Complex, Boiler Room & Stamp The Wax. As well as many tracks receiving a multitude of radio plays from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, NTS Radio & XFM amongst others. Eska’s debut had an encomiastic reception in the press. With The Independent on Sunday awarding the album 5 on top of 4 reviews from Q Magazine & Hi Fi Choice. The Sunday Times Culture named Eska as their “Breaking Act”and Mercury Prize Recommends toasted ‘ESKA’ as their “Album of the Week”.
