Emma Ruth Rundle
+ Jaye Jayle
Entry Requirements: Under 18's must be accompanied
American singer-songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle works her guitar gently around sombre melodies that smell of earth, wood, and fire logs. Gothic folk invested in the power of nature, the sound of her previous bands Red Sparowes and Marriages is heard in her music but the softer, although lyrically preoccupied with overly gloomy themes, touch of her personal approach shines through on all of her three solo albums, the last of which, "Marked For Death" came out on Sargent House in 2016.
After a previous visit in April 2017, Emma is coming back to Europe for four weeks between November and December, accompanied by fellow Sargent House-recording artists Jaye Jayle (featuring Evan Patterson of Young Widows' fame), who also double up as backing band for Emma. Similarly inclined to reach out for the dark corners of the acoustic crossroads where young bluesmen sold their soul to the devil, they represent the perfect complement to Emma Ruth Rundle death mournings, as evident in the split release "The Time Between Us" they shared in February 2017. A triumph in modern Americana to be witnessed on the following dates
MARKED FOR DEATH COVERAGE "Rundle has made her name performing mournful, minor key compositions, swelling with gothic drama, and her latest is her heaviest and most uplifting work yet." - Pitchfork
"There’s a beam of hope beyond that fits as the the emotional way to end Marked For Death, and hopefully move past that mark, leaving death as merely a thought in the blackness of existence." – New Noise Magazine
"Marked For Death pushes boundaries, defies genre limitations, and finds the sweet spot between music that’s high-brow and highly-listenable." - Brooklyn Vegan
