Folkestone Quarterhouse Presents…
Michele Stodart (The Magic Numbers) celebrates releasing her second solo album ‘Pieces’ by playing a special show at Folkestone Quarterhouse.
Over a decade since popular pop rock band The Magic Numbers landed in the top ten with their double platinum selling debut album, Michele Stodart has taken temporary leave of the band she formed with her brother Romeo, to release her second solo album “Pieces” on 8 July 2016. Released four years after her solo debut ‘Wide Eyed Crossing’, her second outing confirms that, almost by stealth, Michele has turned into an artist whose work bears strong comparison to some of the touchstone songwriters that helped shape her outlook.
Michelle and her band (which includes members of The Magic Numbers) have already played the acoustic tent to an enraptured crowd at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and supported Ben Watt of Everything but the Girl on a full UK tour.
Watch the new single ‘Ain’t No Woman’, taken from the forthcoming album ‘Pieces’, released, 8th July on One Little Indian:
Support comes from:
Award-winning singer songwriter and prolific letter writer. Raevennan Husbandes is a largely discovered gem, her beautiful, clear and heartfelt singing voice can electrify a room. She has recently released her debut EP ‘Box of Innocence’ featuring and produced by the legendary BJ Cole. She has also worked with the other talented and successful musicians such as Tracey Browne, Paul Liddel, The Unthanks, Lisa Hannigan, Adrian Roye & The Exiles and many others.
‘As soon as she started singing it was quite obvious this girl was special – her vocals were absolutely beautiful…it was an acoustic masterclass of modern folk’ – 4000 Miles to Nashville
‘Raevennan is blessed with a voice that silences the rooms and captivates audiences’ – Alphabetbands
Since getting together in 2012, Arcelia’s reputation for beautiful songwriting and stunning harmony has begun to spread and they’ve gigged and collaborated with the likes of Squeeze’s Chris Difford, Maddy Prior and the Oysterband.
No posturing or pretence, just a trio of honest artists joining forces and singing their lives. Three very different voices melded with guitar and cajon. The result is a barnful of pure, harmony laden, acoustic songs that climb up and out of the roof.
‘Wonderfully warm harmonies’ – MOJO
‘…the vocals across the tracks stand out as something special…the blend of harmonies lift the songs to another level… acoustic mood music of the highest order…’ – Folk & Roots
