Monthly Residency at The Gladstone and always a great way to round of any week.
Each month a different guest is invited to play a set and set the tone. This month the special guest is Yvonne McDonnell
Expect warm glowing sounds from James and his Head Gardeners with their unique vibe playing songs from last years critically acclaimed album ‘strange readings from the weather station’
Yvonne McDonnell takes inspiration from many artists including Joy Division, BRMC, Johnny Cash and Nick Cave.
Women have also largely influenced her sound and she is often likened to Joan Armatrading, Dolores O’Riordan Tracy Chapman and Janice Joplin.
Descriptions from the press include:
“There is the dusky soul of a miner to her music in her voice, with a Celtic aftertaste that should please die-hard folkies everywhere.” – Gigslutz
‘Yvonne McDonnell has crafted six magnificently poignant pieces of art here.’ – Pure M Mag
Yvonne has a voice that isn’t just pretty. The first thing I would say is that she sounds unique as well as empowering. There is a confidence in the way she sings that makes it easy for the listener to get behind the songs. – The Equal Ground
“She’s extremely talented, has a very distinct and wonderful voice, brilliant song-writing ability and is obviously very passionate about what she does.” – She Makes Music
‘Regardless of the comparison, there is a pungent scent of brilliance in every note picked.’ – Give It Back Magazine
“This talented young artist is one to watch” – King Monkey Promotions.
