We’re delighted to be bringing Peter Broderick to Manchester.

Peter Broderick‘s name has become synonymous with the thriving independent music scene over the past decade, having released ground-breaking albums on prestigious record labels such as Erased Tapes, Bella Union and Type Records. 2014 has already been a busy year for the ever-prolific musician, releasing the collaborative project with British composer Greg Haines under the guise of Greg Gives Peter Space (where the duo share their fascination with dub music), and collaborating on the latest full-length from The Album Leaf (Never Held A Baby).

Peter Broderick is an American-born multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. In his later teenage years he became entwined in the Portland, Oregon indie folk scene, recording for the likes of M. Ward, Laura Gibson, Horse Feathers and Dolorean. 2007 saw him moving across the ocean to Denmark, where he began a long collaboration with the Danish band Efterklang, touring around the world with them for the next five years (and prominently featured on the recordings Performing Parades (2009), Magic Chairs (2010) and Piramida (2012).

Meanwhile he recorded several albums of solo material, ranging from sparse classical compositions (Float) to homemade folk music (Home), constantly experimenting with different musical genres (2012’s These Walls Of Mine fuses country, folk, neo-classical, ambient and hip-hop), and also being commissioned to write music for several films and contemporary dance works (Music For Falling From Trees, Music For Contemporary Dance). He then lived in Berlin for several years where he met and collaborated with Nils Frahm, Dustin O’Halloran, Machinefabriek, Lubomyr Melnyk and several others.

Bella Union has announced the return of Peter, who will release a new EP entitled (Colours Of The Night) Satellite. Recorded in the main in Lucerne, Switzerland (alongside a new LP that’s due in spring 2015), the five-track EP will be released on 13 October and will coincide with a short UK tour.

‘A precociously talented multi-instrumentalist’ – The Independent

Tour support comes from Loch Lomond. After a string of head-turning, critically acclaimed releases on Hush Records, Portland’s Loch Lomond have brought their unique brand of raw symphonic chamber pop to locally based record label Tender Loving Empire. Loch Lomond released their much-anticipated second full lengther, Little Me Will Start A Storm, in 2011, and are currently recording new material. The album was mixed by Adam Selzer (who has recorded all of M. Ward’s records), Tucker Martine (Laura Veirs, The Decemberists), Kevin Robinson (of Viva Voce) and Jeff Stuart Saltzman.
