PicaPica & M G Boulter
Releasing their debut EP on Rough Trade in 2017, PicaPica will be coming to Southend for a special gig at new cultural venue and gallery Twenty One.
Here’s what they say about PicaPica:
“Josienne Clarke and Samantha Whates met on the London acoustic music scene several years ago and immediately shared a love of singing and writing songs. They have been unofficially collaborating for years, more often than not singing backing vocals for each other’s projects or just singing harmonies together for the pure enjoyment of it. PicaPica represents a long held ambition to write, record and perform new material and to join together with like-minded musicians and explore what it’s like to be in a band. Along with multi- instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Adam Beattie and multiple Grammy, Mercury and MOBO nominated producer, guitarist and bass player Sonny Johns, PicaPica make a sound that provides the perfect platform for two of the UK’s brightest vocal and songwriting talents. It’s instantly recognisable and completely unique.”
Support will come from singer-songwriter M G Boulter.
