Joanna Newsom Tickets
Joanna Newsom - Divers
Divers is the new album from this incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist and shows off her diverse talent on a range of instruments. Lead single 'Sapokanikan' is an impressively expansive piano-led song with a meandering melody and beautiful lyrics, but is a more minimalistic effort than many of the other tracks. Featuring its composer on keyboards, synths, clavichords, Marxophones and mellotrons, alongside members of the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, the self-produced release also contains arrangements from composer Nico Muhly and Dirty Projectors leader David Longstreth. It is the product of an artist never content to rest on her laurels, and an extraordinary work of varied beauty.

Joanna Newsom Biography - Harpist Extraordinaire
This California musician began to learn to play the harp at the age of seven, and through years of classical training has gone on to become a greatly accomplished and innovative folk musician. While specialising in her rather unusual choice of instrument, she recorded the innovative extended plays Walnut Whales and Yarn and Glue. This attracted the attention of acclaimed musicians such as Cat Power and Will Oldham, both of whom invited her to open for them on tour. Soon, she was receiving press coverage for her intricate 2004 debut album The Milk-Eyed Mender, with single 'Sprout and the Bean' providing a key early career boost.
Second LP Ys followed in 2006, named after the mythical French city that supposedly sunk off the coast of Brittany over two thousand years ago. With full orchestral backing, it showed a growing ambition and has since been hailed as one of the greatest records of the modern era by a variety of critics. Third LP Have One On Me built upon that base over the course of a tremendously elaborate triple album, and latest release Divers will undoubtedly endear her to new audiences.
