As part of Independent Venue Week 2019, The Adelphi presents the wonderful Rozi Plain
Rozi’s new album will come out with Memphis Industries in Spring 2019 (more news soon)
The unassuming charm of Rozi’s live show has led to tours across Europe, the UK & USA. Along the way she has traversed countries and continents together with such like-minded luminaries as Devendra Banhart, KT Tunstall, James Yorkston and Viking Moses, as well as many appearances at festivals such as Green Man and End of the Road and opening the Park Stage at Glastonbury 2013. A BBC6 favourite Rozi has performed numerous live sessions for Marc Riley and Lauren Laverne. Whether performing alone or with an assembly of her regular musical allies (including François & the Atlas Mountains, This Is The Kit, Rachael Dadd and Being There) her uncluttered songs and effortless hooks create a blissful, singular voice.
“…utterly beguiling. It is intricate, sophisticated, atmospheric and at times mesmerising… tales of love and loss, joy and pain tough times survived and lessons leaned. There are pictures of places held dear, there is emotional release and a joy of simply being alive. Through it all there is a sense of wonder at the complexities and sometimes even the trivialities of life… interesting, sophisticated synth pop full of originality and artistic experimentations…” – Louder Than War
Independent Venue Week is a 7-day celebration of small music venues around the country and a nod to the people that own, run and work in them, week in, week out.
These venues give artists their first experience of playing live in front of an audience and for fans, somewhere to get up close to artists that one day, may well be playing stadiums and festival main stages.
Supported using public funding by Arts Council England in the UK and also the wider music industry and brands globally, Independent Venue Week brings together these venues along with breaking and established artists, promoters, labels, media, bloggers and tastemakers to create a nationwide series of gigs.
These venues are the backbone of the live music scene in their country and Independent Venue Week wants to recognise all that they have done to create some of the most memorable nights of the past so they can continue to do the same in the future.
Iconic live music venue. One of the UK's most celebrated underground clubs.
