Having almost completed a the long mooted solo album, Dermot Lambert has been subtly experimenting with a new sound on selected audiences throughout 2011, showing up here and there with small samples of the new material which makes up ‘Tiny’, the forthcoming album.
The idea of merging an intimate acoustic telling of melancholic stories alongside twisting basslines and rhythms has taken a little while to put together, as the hope is to capture the sense of the quiet living room, only with a massive orchestra sitting beside you – who may or may not decide to play.
The reaction has been very encouraging, and plans are to being set in place to bring the material to a wider audience through 2012.
This Whelans date is the last in a low-key set of dates, as Dermot figures out some of the intricacies of the live arrangements both entirely solo and with a new band.
It promises to be a very interesting evening.
