Following the release of his new single, Jump, Essex based folk artist Kevin Pearce will also be visiting Brickstock at Cardiff Contemporary on November 6 as part of a new UK tour.
Growing up surrounded by the classics of his dad’s record collection; The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, Kevin has always lost himself in music. Hearing Tim Buckley’s Dream Letter: Live In London 1968 album was a moment of profound awakening. From then on music was all that Kevin wanted to do and what he knew he had to do.
Having supported the likes of Beth Orton, Saul Williams and Turin Brakes previously, as well as playing a host of solo shows, Kevin has already cultivated a loyal and active fanbase.
Sonically, Jump marks a significant progression in Pearce’s sound, building on the traditional folk songwriting style he is known for, adding more layers and textures resulting in a definite, electronic influence to the music. Having released previous LP Dynamite in 2014, Pearce was keen to take his work in a new, more diverse direction and Jump is the first evidence of this approach.
