Will Rebecca prove "Too Much" for FarGo?
By Peter Walters.
At FarGo village in Coventry organisers are welcoming back live music with what promises to be a spectacular launch event on Thursday (July 29) headlined by the artist Self-Esteem. Rebecca Lucy Taylor - previously of Slow Club - made the playlists of both BBC Radio One and 6 Music with her hit single "I Do This all The Time" and her experimental-pop project became the subject of a much talked-about performance during Later, With Jools Holland.
Details of Self-Esteem's second album, Prioritise Pleasure, were announced last week alongside the release of Taylor's second second single and title track.
Pulling no punches she says: "It's 13 songs of cleansing myself of the guilt and fear of being a woman who is 'too much'."
Will she be too much for The Box at FarGo? What can we say except that tickets are selling fast. Support comes from talented Coventry artists, alt-rock singer songwriter Ace Ambrose and experimental-pop act Paradise of the Titans. Plus an exclusive DJ set by Block Radio hosts Ellie Ball (Mixed Signals) and Erin Brown (Drink Your Milk)
* Tickets are also now on sale for Emmy the Great, who will be performing at The Box on Friday 17 September, with an intimate show of favourite songs selected from her 15 year career in the recording industry. Emma-Lee Moss is a London-based singer-songwriter, composer and journalist. As Emmy the Great, she has released four albums - First Love (2009), Virtue (2011), Second Love (2016) and April/ 月音 (2020). Sunday Times described her latest release, April/ 月音, as “the most melodically joyous of her career.”
