Talitres welcomes Rachael Dadd

We are pleased to announce that Rachael Dadd has joined the Talitres roster !

With a string of releases on Broken Sound (UK), Sweetdreams Press and Angel’s Egg (Japan) and support from DJs on Radio 1, Radio 2, Xfm, and 6 Music, experimental folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd is preparing to release her strongest and most impacting body of work into the public sphere. Two years in the making « We Resonate » is an uplifting celebration of life and by far her most collaborative. It sees Rachael joined by Laura Marling’s sideman Marcus Hamblet, experimental Japanese multi instrumentalist ICHI, Alessi Laurent-Marke of Alessi’s Ark, Rozi Plain, Emma Gatrill of Sons of Noel and Adrian, and Thomas Heather of Woodpecker Wooliams.

Carving out a niche of its own and crossing genres from folk, through pop and experimental, « We Resonate » pulses with poly-rhythms on prepared-piano, homemade xylophone, voice, clarinets, typewriter, boxes of matches, steel drum, tap-dancing, clapping, and even the heartbeat of Rachael’s baby in the womb. Her love of african field-recordings and the spirit embodied within them has seeped into the diverse mix of influences, along with Steve Reich, Tune Yards, and the Japanese underground/improv scene.
