We return to Bishop Street Church on Leicester's Town Hall Square for a special performance from Erased Tapes Records David Allred.

Hailing from Loomis, a small town outside of Sacramento, via Portland, Oregon – David worked as a sound engineer and session musician, featuring on multiple recordings by the likes of Birger Olsen, Brigid Mae Power, Brumes, The Beacon Sound Choir, Chantal Acda, Heather Woods Broderick, Jung Body, Masayoshi Fujita, and many more. He quickly found himself touring Europe with Peter Broderick, culminating in a Royal Festival Hall performance, and contributing the arresting voice and double bass piece Ahoy to the Erased Tapes 10th anniversary box set 1+1=X.

Following on from last year's acclaimed debut with Erased Tapes The Transition — named #17 album of the year by The Sunday Times — Californian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Allred returns with The Cell, a mini album released on June 14th.

Meant as a companion piece to The Transition, The Cell picks up where The Transition left off, with David continuing the search to find his place in the world. “The Cell is about warmly acknowledging the darkness in our individual lives as a strategic method of gaining a deeper understanding of how to move forward in a vastly dissonant world with optimism, harmony and light.”

Praise for The Cell:

"Beautiful, mournful, impossibly slow, packed with evocative lines that recall Cass McCombs' work... He certainly leaves us wanting more" — Uncut Magazine

"In Allred we have a new master of minimalism" - Loud and Quiet

"One of the most unique listening experiences of the year so far" - Secret Meeting

Praise for The Transition:

"This is music of transcendent beauty" #17 Album Of The Year
— The Sunday Times

"Mournful piano Allred's delicate baritone stretched and often glazed with subtle FX, like an ecclesiastical reading of John Grant's brooding pop" — Mojo

“Weltschmerz (world weariness) has seldom been as movingly beautiful as on this debut” — Rolling Stone (Germany)
"There cannot be many albums of emotional resonance inspired by a spell of employment in a retirement home" (7.5/10) — The Line Of Best Fit

"The way that Allred has sonically represented his struggles is tender and touching"
— The 405

"Part orchestral, part experimental – all wonderful” — Electronic Sound Magazine

"A beautiful listen" (9/10) — Soundlab

With support from Adam Weikert.
