KATIE KIM & JENNIFER EVANS
Seven Quarters is an exciting new club night starting this April in Whelan’s of Wexford Street, as part of the venue celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Its official launch is Friday April 25th with a double headline show featuring the extremely talented Katie Kim and Jennifer Evans.
Seven Quarters is different from any other club night happening in Ireland, as we will be giving punters a different limited edition seven inch vinyl, featuring previously unreleased tracks, from the artists performing each club night. This seven inch vinyl will be given away for free to the first 150 people in the door as part of the club entry of €10.
Seven Quarters is a new project by Barry Lennon (Richter Collective, Community Of Independents and Hands Up Who Wants To Die) and is set to feature some of the most exciting acts in the Irish music scene. “I am very excited to launch this club with Katie Kim and Jennifer Evans playing, it’s a great honour to work with these two amazing acts. I hope each limited edition release the club does will help document and highlight the amazing inspirational musicians and sometimes unspoken talent we have in Ireland” said club creator Barry Lennon.
The name of the club Seven Quarters is based on the idea of the word seven referring to a 7” inch vinyl and the Quarters part is based on the fact the club will happen four times a year with the second club set to take place on Friday June 20th
KATIE KIM is the pseudonym of Waterford singer Katie Sullivan, who performs slowcore, ethereal, ambient folk/pop.
Her debut album Twelve was praised throughout Ireland and prompted collaborations with a host of other artists including David Kitt, Milosh, Halves, Mike Scott and Ten Past Seven. She joined the Waterboys, singing the parts of the dark faery queen and playing guitar and bass on their WB Yeats tour.
Katie scored and performing an original soundtrack in conjunction with the French Film Festival for Germain Dulac’s 1927 controversial masterpiece, The Seashell & The Clergyman, which is believed to be one of the first avant garde, surrealist films ever made.
She released her second album Cover & Flood on a double vinyl on Flaming June records in January 2012. Her third album will be released summer 2014.
JENNIFER EVANS has recently put the finishing touches to her debut album with Irish producer Stephen Shannon (aka Strands).
Jennifer skilfully combines jazz, blues and dark folk influences into a unique style that’s ‘art rock’ while remaining soulful, ardent and graceful in equal measures. Emotional experiences and daunting but lush perceptions of being feed the debut album.
Jennifer Evans’ vocals are soulful and lyrically unique in origin, focusing on empirical knowledge, exoticism, a questioning of identity and home.
The album will be out in the Summer of 2014 on Delphi and is much anticipated after the excitement created by her debut EP ‘Salient Point’.
