Deep Cabaret Album Launch @ More Music
Mar 14 @ 7:00 pm

Deep Cabaret is a thing of riffs and drones. Featuring:

Steve Lewis (vocals & guitar)

Maja Bugge (cello)

Ben McCabe (drums & vocals)

Matt Robinson (clarinets, baritone saxophone & flutes)

Paul Sherwood (hurdy-gurdies & bagpipes)

Jayson Stilwell (overtone vocals & percussion)

 

At the beginning of 2019 Deep Cabaret were awarded Arts Council England funding to record an album at Real World studios with producer Justin Adams (Tinawarien, Lo’Jo).

 

Deep Cabaret is the culmination of bandleader Steve Lewis’ life’s work: to make a band that curates all the musics that fascinate him – jazz, improv, African, folk and leftfield pop. To use that music to set fragments of text taken from novels, journalism, spiritual and other texts that have interesting things to say about being human.

 

Deep Cabaret is a thing of riffs and drones. Hurdies, bagpipes, bass clarinets, cellos and the beguilingly unsettling harmonics of overtone singing. Desert blues improv and noir-drenched dronesongs; fulsomely romantic and coruscatingly edgy. Mashed-up lyrics lifted from neuroscience, slavery, fiction and Cole Porter covers all “pickled in the juices of the peat”.

 

“As the sun set, Deep Cabaret shared a spellbinding mix of sounds, many inspired by the stories and landscapes of Morecambe Bay. It was a delight to hear such an intriguing mix of instruments and astonishing vocals”
