ACOUSTIC LIVE STAGE
Independent Label Market is delighted to announce some very special acoustic performances from Kaina (City Slang), Wyldest (Hand In Hive), Death Knell’s Steel String (Crocodile Laboratories) and a very special guest from Sad Club Records!
1pm • Clara Mann (Sad Club)
Clara Mann spent her childhood on the move. Growing up in locations as diverse as inner London and the South of France, the rural South West of England and the DIY hub that is Bristol, she learned to piece together her identity on her own. Music, however, was always a constant. The songwriter began to express herself as a teen, playing tiny shows at first, with a voice both promising and hesitant. The past 12 months have represented a period of sharp evolution, with Clara Mann able to distill those stark folk influences: Karen Dalton, say, or Vashti Bunyan, into something that is purely, uniquely hers.
1.30pm • Kaina (City Slang)
Born and raised in Chicago to Venezuelan and Guatemalan parents, KAINA always carries her lineage with her, often singing about healing generational trauma and expressing what it means to grow up as a first-generation kid.
Firmly one of today’s essential artists, born in Chicago to immigrant parents, KAINA creates generational music that surpasses borders and speaks to a far-reaching community of people that grew up in between languages, cultures, regions, and genres. KAINA has been catapulted to the forefront of a new wave of artists transforming the music landscape through deep representation.
2pm • Death Knell’s Steel String (Crocodile Laboratories)
Death Knell’s Steel String is the new punk poetry project of songwriter Noel Anderson (JC Flowers, Facel Vega, COP, ADVERT, Satellites of Love & Unwork Records). Think Leonard Cohen meets Richard Hell w/ a lyrical focus on occult topics & allusions ranging from gnostic scripture to the JFK assassination & nuclear apocalypse.
