Tiny Leaves – Alone not alone: Virtual Concert
Melting Vinyl are delighted to be hosting the wonderful Tiny Leaves on our and the artist’s Facebook and Instagram as part of their virtual tour.
Tiny leaves will be joined by a viola player: Faith Brackenbury.
Tiny Leaves presents a virtual tour, live at dusk from his home studio in the Shropshire hills. Accompanied by Faith Brackenbury on viola, they’ll be performing music from his 2020 album Alone, not alone.
Tiny Leaves is the music of composer Joel Nathaniel Pike. His critically acclaimed instrumental music features beautiful string arrangements layered on top of piano and guitar-scapes with additional percussive elements. There is a delicate, cinematic beauty to his compositions.
Tiny Leaves says: ‘I couldn’t think of a better time to perform this album, as its
theme is solitude and togetherness, which is exactly what we have been living through the last six months.’
His music has been featured by Nils Frahm on the iconic ‘Piano Day’ playlist and he has toured with acclaimed U.S. artist Julianna Barwick. As well as touring his own shows, he has also shared stages with artists such as Hannah Peel, Get The Blessing, Haiku Salut, Sam Amidon and A Winged Victory For The Sullen. His work has been broadcast by Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe, Stuart Maconie, John Kelly and Chris Hawkins and featured on New York’s Newsounds. His music has been used in the Sony’s Experia ‘Run Your Way’ advert, ‘The Believer’s’ stage production by Frantic Assembly and was recently used in the South Korean documentary feature film “The Long Farewell”.
Tiny Leaves’ first EP was released in 2012. His debut album A Good Land, An Excellent Land, released in June 2013, received glowing reviews. Tracks from the album were featured by BBC6Music, with special attention as their ‘headphones moment’ on Lauren Laverne’s show and again as their MP-Free. Tiny Leaves’ thirteen track – second album A Certain Tide gained global airplay and was included on Nike’s ‘mindful miles’ running playlist. Notes On Belonging, Tiny Leaves’ third album, came out on Pegdoll records in 2017 and tracks from it have been aired by Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie on BBC6music. His singles The Fullness Of Things and Respair, we’re the 2019 forerunners to his fourth album, receiving international airplay and playlisting before the full Alone, Not Alone album arrived in February 2020.
Due to the covid-19 situation, Tiny Leaves is touring this year’s release from his home, partnering with different venues across the U.K.
