Some people collect stamps, Emil Landman collects stories. Stories that he gathers during his many journeys on different continents, to then summarize them in a beautiful song reminiscent of Thomas DybDahl, Ben Howard and Alex Murdoch. Small songs and large full-band songs take you to the smoky bars of New Orleans or deliver a stale cup of Nashville coffee. His album ‘Colors And Their Things’ was written in the US. Emil got drunk, broke, soaked with rain and fell in love. He felt happiest ever but also reached his lowest lows. And you hear that in his songs, in how much feeling he puts in it. Now that ‘Colors And Their Things’ is finished, the singer is ready for the next step. This is only the beginning.
The English singer-songwriter was born deaf and couldn’t hear until he was 5 years old, but when he became a teenager, he was hooked on the guitar. Jono McCleery didn’t stay unnoticed, he toured with the OneTaste Collective and on his way he picked up a small army of fans, including stars like Tom Robinson and Vashti Bunyan, who even set up a crowdfund-action to be able to release his debut album. In the meantime, he has already released three albums and is building his career. He has already collaborated with a number of major producers and artists as Maceo Plex, Maribou State and Technimatic, just to name a few. On 23 November he will share the stage with Emil Landman, a guarantee for a beautiful evening.
