Hungersleep Records records are excited to announce that GRICE will be performing at The Exeter Cathedral Chapter House on Friday 6 October as part of the Lost Weekend Festival in Exeter.
The electro-acoustic musician and prolific singer-songwriter Grice will be performing a cocktail of electronica and atmospheric art rock and will be accompanied by special guest Italian avant-garde and freeform jazz trumpeter Luca Calabrese. The unique line up is completed by Duncan Chave (Eigenharp, programming), Fred Ehresmann (keys, grand piano) and Bellatrix (bass, double bass).
Grice has built his reputation as an art-rock artist since the release of his acclaimed debut album Propeller which features renowned saxophonist Raphael Ravenscroft (Pink Floyd, Gerry Rafferty), Hossam Ramzy (Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel), Markus Reuter and PJ Cole amongst others. His much anticipated second album Alexandrine, features keyboardist and sonic innovator Richard Barbieri (Japan/Porcupine Tree) as both musical contributor and co-producer, Steve Jansen (Japan) and 05Ric (Gavin Harrison) on drums.
With airplay on The Tom Robinson Show (BBC6 Music), BBC Introducing (James Santer), BBC Radio Devon (John Govier Show, Vic Morgan), PhonicFM and radio stations in Europe and USA, GRICE is carving his place in the left-field art rock music scene.
‘Art Rock gem – there is much that is filmic and Zen here. When personality is required, Grice’s voice has it.’
‘Music is art and this is one of the most beautiful, romantic, dramatic pieces of personally crafted song writing you will ever hear.’
‘Gripping and poignant’
'a genuinely extraordinary slice of experimental rock' PROG magazine
'one of the most impressive and accessible forays into the esoteric underbelly of British rock music'
'GRICE can walk the line between organic and artificial with grace and creativity.'
Date: Friday 6 October 2017
Doors: 6:30pm. Start: 7pm
Venue: Exeter Cathedral Chapter House, The Cloisters, Exeter, EX1 1HS
The Chapter House is one of the oldest parts of the Exeter Cathedral; originally the administrative centre for the Dean and Chapter, severe fire damage in the 15th century lead to the re-build to its current glory. The extended high ceiling, decorated tie beam room and fine sculpture make a unique and beautiful setting for this event.
