Cool as Folk – Son of Eagle + Antonio Luli? + Vivienne Youel – Thursday 15th Dec – 8pm – Hackney Att

Son of Eagle’s massive viola riffs give way to sparkling guitars, rumbling percussion and shifty bass-lines. All the while the distinctive voice of Benjamin perches on top, matching the rise and fall of the band’s music with its contrasting softening and intensity. Music that gives a respectful nod towards Bob Dylan and James Taylor, whilst drawing on and distinguishing itself against contemporary acts such as Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes.Antonio Luli? is an independent purveyor of Rock-Folk from England’s fashionably impoverished North East. His first full-length album ‘Never or Tonight’ was unleashed this year and somehow manages to combine influences from Bruce Springsteen, Ani DiFranco, Mumford & Sons and all that lies between, delivering torrents of rootsy, energetic, and uniquely soulful tunes.Vivienne Youel has been writing songs since first handed a guitar age 12. Her song writing skills have since developed into \an exquisite voice and lyrics” (The Vintage Guide to London) you won’t be able to help but like what you hear. £3
