The Met welcomes the Jane Taylor Band on Saturday 16 April at 8pm.
When a song called Fall on Me, was played on Johnnie Walker\’s Drive Time show on BBC Radio 2, he was inundated with e-mails wanting to know who this new singer songwriter was, where they could find out about her, and most importantly would he please play more.
One live Radio 2 session later, and a distribution deal with Pinnacle followed alongside a national release of the album and support slots with Bill Wyman, Jools Holland, Paul Buchanan, Seth Lakeman and Paolo Nutini, and having just recorded her second album with Mercury nominee producer Colin Elliot, (Richard Hawley) one of Bristol\’s finest singer songwriters is truly on her way.
Jane\’s new album, Compass features an eclectic mix of aural delights. Classical Vaughan Williams style strings, a Steinway piano, a Gospel choir singing with half the Hawley band, the Grimethorpe Colliery Brass Band (who appeared in the Ewan McGregor film \’Brassed Off\’), a music box, Ukulele\’s and a rhythm track made up of everything from rustling rubbish bins to the cellist making a sound of a Dolphin.
\’Jane Taylor is no ordinary singer songwriter. She has this intangible magic in her voice. The kind that draws you in and holds you right there until the moment you notice that you\’ve forgotten to breathe and then you hear her words (which bizarrely seem to have been written for you), and stand there transfixed like its a bit of fate that brought you here and I will defy anyone not to leave without a cd or at least humming one of her songs\’ – Get Rhythm.
Don\’t miss the opportunity to see a star in the making. Tickets are £8, £10 on the door. To book or for more information please call the ticket office on 0161 761 2216 or go online www.themet.biz
