Singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Fini Bearman’s brand new album, La Loba (out 9th October), has already received glowing praise, including 4 ****’s and ‘Editors Choice’ from Jazzwise – ‘La Loba marks Bearman out as one of contemporary music’s most imaginative song stylists’ (Peter Quinn). Tonight, celebrating the launch of this record, Fini comes together with Tom Cawley (piano) and James Maddren (drums) to perform this new material in an exciting and intimate setting.
Spanning a wide range of musical textures and lyrical themes, ‘La Loba’ is infused with world-wide influences, from American folklore, to stories of young children in East Berlin. These are songs about womanhood and childhood; looking for love and finding it; femininity, courage and the life-long journey towards individuation. As well as drawing luscious and vivid imagery, this new collection of songs is a celebration of all the dimensions of life as well as a call to arms – challenging the listener to stand up and find their own voice.
‘We all begin as a bundle of bones lost somewhere in the desert, a dismantled skeleton that lies under the sand. It is our work to recover the parts.’
