IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: We're very sorry to have to announce that Loula Yorke will no longer be performing on Saturday 5 March as part of the Deliaphonic Festival. But we’re glad to have Vanishing Twin, a London-based psychedelic pop quintet, to complete the new lineup.

 

 "Really sad I can no longer be there this weekend due to illness. Super glad an ace replacement, Vanishing Twin, has been found for my slot on Saturday night!" Loula Yorke

 

Age guideline: 14+ years (under 16s must be accompanied by an adult)

Our Saturday evening headliner LoneLady, a.k.a Julie Campbell, is a musician, songwriter, singer and producer from Manchester. As her name indicates, LoneLady writes, performs and records all the components of her music, building up her own sound worlds in a solitary creative process. 

She'll be joined by musicians Richard Norris and Vanishing Twin to complete the lineup. A DJ set from Jerry Dammers’ collection of ‘library music’ records and visual images, plus a new composition recorded by Jerry accompanying the paintings of Turner Prize nominated Coventry artist George Shaw. Enjoy a turbulent night of electronica and funk in the iconic Coventry Cathedral and be ready to scream.

Deliaphonic is also working with Coventry City of Culture’s international partner the British Council and Sheffield-based Sensoria Festival to host FAMLAB IV. The week-long residency brings together 10 international and UK musicians and composers to explore film composition, archive material and collaborative music projects. Deliaphonic will be unveiling work made from this project as part of the Saturday evening performances. The British Council also supports live streaming of Saturday’s programme for wider UK and international audiences to enjoy.

ABOUT ARTISTS

LoneLady

Julie Campbell, A.K.A LoneLady, is a musician, songwriter, singer and producer from Manchester. Inspired by British post-punk, Julie first started making recordings in the early-mid 2000s on a 4-track cassette recorder in her flat in Manchester while completing a Fine Art Degree. 

Her starkly urgent debut album Nerve Up was released on Warp in 2010 to critical acclaim. Showcasing Julie’s choppy, intricate and economical guitar playing and judiciously sparse arrangements. Julie’s second album Hinterland in 2015 reflects Julie’s expanding musical palette, now incorporating elements of electronic dance music and funk. 

Created on electronic sequencers, synths and drum machines, LoneLady’s third studio album Former Things is a tour-de-force of punch-and-crunch electro, r’n’b and pop, shot through with mournful eulogies to the lost golden age of childhood and youth.

Jerry Dammers DJ set, plus collaboration with artist George Shaw.

Founder of the Specials and 2Tone ‘s selection of Library Music records with projected visuals, including a piece of original music Jerry has composed and recorded for the Coventry City of Culture year exclusively, accompanying the paintings of Coventry artist George Shaw who was a Turner Prize nominee. George will be in attendance as a special guest. 

Please do not expect Jerry’s more usual ska and reggae DJ sets. On this occasion, he will deliver music mainly from his extensive collection of Library music - obscure “off the shelf ” music produced for TV and film backgrounds.

Vanishing Twin

There’s a mystery to Vanishing Twin – from their name to the multitude of sounds that inhabit their music. They don’t sound like many but they hint at plenty; even the briefest exposure starts a tick list of the weird and beautiful – from Sun Ra to Alice Coltrane, Martin Denny to Morricone, Can’s Holger Czukay to meditative Gamelan, or The Free Design, to library music of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

The band formed in 2015 from members of East London’s independent scene. The group united over a love of old records, unusual sounds and instruments, and wanting to create an artistic universe that linked sound and image. The result was a distinctive visual identity and music charged with synthaesthetic suggestion.

“This is a band that fearlessly floats in the hazy space between the real world and an imagined one, blurring the line between warmly nostalgic and eerily haunted.” Pitchfork

Richard Norris 

RIchard has a long history of creating electronic music, particularly as one-half of the Grid and Beyond The Wizards Sleeve. His current work is a series of warm, electronic deeplistening albums, on UK based label Group Mind Records.
