  • Ruarri Joseph + Lily & Meg 12/11/14

    Doors: 10pm Tickets: £10 Advance -- Ruarri Joseph returns this Autumn with a new album ‘Brother’ (Pip Productions). The record, Ruarri’s fourth studio album to date, is a record inspired and propelled by ideas of friendship, relationships and family. Originally born in Edinburgh, the nomadic Joseph found his song- writing roots in the southwestern Pacific. A move to New Zealand, and the young Ruarri found himself coming of age in Dannevirke (population 6,000), an isolated, rural farming community. At 17 Joseph packed his suitcase and moved back to the UK and settled in London, where he released his debut album ‘Tales Of Grime and Grit’ through Atlantic Records. Shortly after he quit Atlantic in favour of independence and so in 2008, he formed his own label ‘Pip Productions’ through which all his subsequent LPs have been released. Inspired by Bob Dylan, the singer song-writer’s work has also earned him favourable comparisons to the chart-topping pop savvy sounds of Damian Rice and David Gray, artists which through no coincidence Joseph now shares management with. “One of our best songwriters and lyricists” – The Times “As wise as a 70 year old Johnny Cash” – NME “Genius…a breath of the freshest air” - Observer “Like a modern Cat Stevens” – Paolo Nutini “Stunning” – Claudia Winkleman, BBC Radio2
