Jessie L. Warren & Friends at Some Velvet Morning on almost all the Wednesdays in May.
Jessie L. Warren plays in Hachiku, half/cut, has been a touring member of SEAGULL, sung on stage with The Breeders, Jen Cloher, and courtney barnett, formed a supergroup (Golden Arrow) with Lisa Mitchell and Lanie Lane, and released a 2010 LP as CARRY NATION.
But Warren has also avoided the spotlight, favouring film scores, experiments, learning. Studying marine biology, she turned in a song for an assignment; studying composition, she submitted a scientific report instead of a score.
All this has led to her debut solo LP, Ūhta. Recorded live in a Melbourne church, its sound —harp, pipe organ, saxophone, musical saw, choral vocals— was inspired by Talk Talk, Movietone, Caroline Shaw, and repeat listens of Joni Mitchell’s River.
