Having sold out her intimate headline show at St. Pancras Old Church on November 7th two months in advance, Gabriella Cilmi announces a new London headline show, taking place at Oslo (Hackney) on May 27th, 2020. Tickets go on general sale this Thursday September 18th from – http://www.alttickets.com/gabriella-cilmi-tickets – and there will be a pre-sale this Wednesday to anyone who signs up to Gabriella’s mailing list – http://bit.ly/Gabriellacilmimail.
Speaking about the shows Gabriella says “Can’t wait to play St. Pancras Old Church’ and I’m so happy it’s sold out!! The atmosphere is always beautiful and it’s the perfect venue to showcase the new EP given the blend of country, gospel and soul music that inspired the record. Also super excited to announce I’ll be playing ‘The Oslo’ in Hackney next year in May. So anyone that missed out on tickets to the last gig can hopefully join us then. I’ve seen so many great gigs at this place so looking forward to playing the venue myself, it sounds killer in there!”
The live announcement follows on from the recent release Gabriella’s blues tinged single ‘The Water’. ‘The Water’ is the second single from Gabriella’s forthcoming EP of the same title, which will be released on November 1st and showcases a more mature and authentic sound from the Australian artist.
Working with her brother Joseph as co-songwriter and Eliot James as producer, the three stripped her music to the core. Her forthcoming new EP is the bravest, most explicitly honest thing Gabriella Cilmi has ever done.
Speaking about the new single, Gabriella explains, “We wrote the water over a blues riff and it kind of evolved from there. The lyrics were inspired by new age prophets and the self-professed messiah types, who promise you heaven on earth if you follow them, sign up to their courses or donate to their “churches” funding their lavish lifestyles. I was watching Wild, Wild Country at the time and I guess that may have sublimely influenced me.”
