Rachael Jean Harris

Piano Sessions feat. Rachael Jean Harris

Rachael Jean Harris carves a highly individual sound, blurring the lines between folk, jazz and indie, drawing from a love of adventurous writers such as PJ Harvey, Esperanza Spalding and Kate Bush and allowing a love of poetry and literature to shine in her thoughtful, evocative lyrics. The majority of her songs fall into rich themes surrounding the lives of people on the raw edges of existence – women in conflict zones, men in long term confinement; whilst her recent work takes on more personal themes as she discovers how journeys through grief, past relationships and new freedoms find solace and reverberation within the natural world.

James Jackson

Piano Sessions feat. Rachael Jean Harris

Once described by an audience member as a “therapy session on stage”, James Jackson is an emotionally intense live act. His evocative lyrics and commanding performance have drawn vast comparisons to artists such as Damien Rice, Joni Mitchell and John Martyn. His storytelling through song is staggering, and when set to their beautiful piano playing, the results are gut-wrenching and heartfelt, relatable yet very personal. There’s something extraordinarily hypnotising about Jackson gently confessing his soul with such tremendous honesty.
