ANNA JORDAN w/ DENNIS CASSIDY
A debut performance and EP launch from this two piece band featuring Anna Jordan on vocals and piano and Dennis Cassidy on drums and electronics. Support on the night comes from Paddy Groenald.
“Dust”, Anna’s début EP, sees her harness her many influences to produce a sound that is uniquely her own. Her voice conveys a broad palette of emotions, she avoids confessional cliché, writing instead words that unfold with cryptic delicacy. She has the wonderful knack of composing deceptively simple melodies with memorable piano lines that weave together strands of Classical, Jazz, Dance and Indian music. Dennis Cassidy, who accompanies her throughout the EP, shows just how versatile a drummer he is. The anchor man and drummer of Dublin’s Jazz- Hip-Hop collective “Mixtapes from the Underground”, here he holds back though and provides sensitive and engaging accompaniment and ethereal arrangements that chime perfectly with Jordan’s lyrics and music.
