Friday Live: Merival + support from Chloe Mogg

Due to current government guidelines advising against attending public venues, we have currently suspended the ticketing system for this event until we know more on the situation. As we await further advice from the government, please find our full statement here.

"It feels like a privilege to be able to live in these songs - self reflections that most would keep hidden, or at most share with only a best friend . . . Lesson punches way above its weight and encourages the kind of empathy and honesty the world so badly needs right now." - DOMINIONATED
Canadian singer-songwriter Merival writes searching songs out of deeply personal tension. Heartache, dysfunction, and interpersonal growth inform her introspective lyrics; philosophical musings are carried by her deceptively involved musical arrangements. Vulnerability is the name of her game, by turns light-hearted and heavy.
 
"Lesson features delicate songs with rich internal explorations as well as songs that swerve with a sense of unruliness - proving to be as complicated and thoughtful an entity as the songwriter herself."- Exclaim!
Merival will be touring the USA, UK, Canada, and Germany in 2020 and will be releasing her newest EP Either Side in spring 2020.


With support from
Chloe Mogg - Delivering a mixture of musical influences, Chloe Mogg creates a spacious journey that will take you through all the emotions of music. As a young singer-songwriter with “parrot” hair, she brings life and colour to her performances. Known for her quirkiness and smile, she haunts the audience with her ability to tell a story with only her voice, guitar and ‘strange’ effects. With influences from Jeff Buckley, Nick Harper, Alanis Morissette and Marika Hackman to name a few, Chloe showcases a wide range of inspirations. Supporting artists such as Nick Harper, Jon Gomm & Quill, and playing hundred’s of festivals all over the UK (including Lakefest, Moseley Folk & Arts Festival, Avebury Rocks, Leamington Peace Festival), Chloe’s in her natural habitat on stage. With debut EP “Thalamus” getting radio play on BBC Radio 6 & BBC Introducing Hereford & Worcester, the songwriter has recently released her first single in 2 years “Judgement Day” which sees her experiment in an electronica/trip-hop world. Currently, the songstress is in the recording process of her debut album due for release October 2020. The debut album will see all her influences in one place and will become her most diverse work yet.

"Firstly, you notice the hair. Long, flowing and daubed in rainbow colours it's like all the magic of Glastonbury Festival rolled into one haircut" - Express and Star
