JOSH T. PEARSON

Lift to Experience frontman Josh T Pearson is set to play a second intimate solo show at St John on Bethnal Green this December after his first show sold out.

Though he’s been a recording artist for over two decades now, and has been writing songs for thirty years, Josh T. Pearson hasn’t racked up much of a discography thus far, at least in terms of the number of albums he’s released. But then, those two albums – 2001’s The Texas-Jerusalem Crossroads, by his group Lift To Experience, and his 2011 solo debut Last Of The Country Gentlemen – contained more substance and inspiration than most artists’ entire careers. The former was a cosmic, apocalyptic allegorical fantasy that saw Pearson try to come to terms with his faith and his intense upbringing; the latter was an agonizing, powerfully confessional account of the collapse of his marriage. You can’t rush material like that.

“Meditative, spectral dreamscapes …  extraordinary voice: a fragile, sensuous instrument” – MOJO ★★★★

“Lush, dreamy songwriting with a gilded edge… Deliciously moody.” – CLASH

“Khouri’s voice is breathy, sensual, beguiling, meditative and her phrasing is a joy” – R2 ★★★★★

“A pocket-sized book of lullabies, and gothic shanties, whose sounds and lyrics evoke a series of wondrous daydreams and sorrowful, mood-filled, late-night tales.” – Drowned in Sound
