ME, THEE & E: Me, Thee & E’s take on the singer-songwriter thing spirals out of a love of jazz, classical and folk music, from Bach to Gershwin, Paco de Lucia to Bob Dylan, Ella Fitzgerald and back again. Their songs tell the tales of their times – relationships, society, philosophy and politics, all told with the naive wisdom of late night bar talk ringing clear in every crevice. There’s anger and sadness, optimism, gladness – protest against something or other and after 18 months trawling the country for venues and listening ears, they now bring to the table a selection of songs from this first period of touring life.
Tom is a jack of all trades, a failed jazz pianist taken to the guitar and Evie is a classical singer who never practiced her scales and decided she preferred singing folk songs instead. They draw on these failures to bring you a rather lovely melting pot of sounds and stories from every part of the western music map. You’ll hear exciting guitar solos, extravagant vocal extrapolations and every dynamic marking in the book, from near silent, dark folk ballads to rousing, roof-raising choruses, belted through soprano lungs.
Evie and Tom are vibrant live performers and you should expect exciting, improvised interplay between vocal and guitar and many a story from these young troubadours.
