A bracing, salty blast of Cornish air blows through Union Chapel this week, thanks to BACHE. They’re an acoustic duo, winning over audiences everywhere they go with their quirky, fun and often meaningful lyrics. Unusually, Crewdson & Cevanne were formed when they were thrust together for an improvised broadcast on Resonance FM. From there, they’ve created an extraordinary sonic world of electronics and folk, with voices, harp and found sounds played on their DIY electronic instruments.
Uncut, Mojo and The Independent have all raved about The Last Dinosaur’s creative and inventive music, with the former describing it as “elegiac, cathartic, rewarding and beautifully moving.” And it’s back to the seaside with the self-proclaimed “deadbeat Cornish Wreckers wannabee singers” Shall’ee Shanties, who modestly claim they’ve “honed their craft from stamping their feet and singing like crows.” Can’t imagine what that sounds like in real life? Be sure to get along to Daylight Music this week!
BACHE (Bay-ch) is a pop-folk band based in Cornwall. The band was formed around the songs written by Cornish singer/songwriter Andrew Bache and features Phil Brown on Drums, Adam Sparks on Bass and Sam BF on Lead Guitar. They are known for their upbeat and fun stage presence and their ability to have a room up on their feet and singing along to songs they have never heard before as well as putting their own spin on well known songs. Their rapport with audiences is what they are remembered for alongside their quirky, sometimes explicit lyrics.
BACHE write songs about things that we all think and feel but don't always say out loud. Whether this is through upbeat lighthearted songs, about the things you would like to say to that friend who 'is a bit of a dick' or why you shouldn't talk your ex, to slower more heartfelt songs, about love that's lost and raising a glass to the future, the lyrics all have a relatable and meaningful story.
They receives regular airplay on local radio stations including a number of songs played on BBC Introducing with their charity Christmas single 'There's No L in Christmas' receiving national airplay on the Mark Forest show.
The summer of 2016 saw them tour the UK playing at a number of high profile festivals such as Boardmasters & Bristol Balloon Fiesta as well playing at venues such as The Roadhouse in Birmingham and Alley Cat in London.
BACHE are currently in the studio finishing off their debut album which is set to be released in May 2017 and then the band will be heading back on the road for a UK Tour shortly after.
Cevanne & Crewdson create modern folk songs from field recordings, and perform them with voices, celtic harp and invented electronic instruments.
Cevanne is the first composer-in-residence with the London Symphony Orchestra, at the National Trust property 575 Wandsworth Road. Anglo-Armenian, born in Suffolk, she grounds her work in the British isles – digging into their rich soil to find artefacts which one would not always imagine to be native. As an agile performer (vocals, lever harp, and electronics) Cevanne numbers actor Jessica Hynes; Babyshambles; and Zoe Rahman amongst her collaborators.
Hugh ‘Crewdson’ Jones is a live electronic performer, producer, teacher, instrument builder and musician. Live, as in the studio, he creates sound from machinery, found items, manipulated vocals, saxophone, traditional concertina and his self designed ‘Concertronica’ which he samples and manipulates through his idiosyncratic electronic set up, controlling his sounds with digital game controllers and (another original design) midi motorcycle handlebars.
