John Bramwell of I Am Kloot, one of the UK's most cherished and revered songwriters, performs solo at The Globe at Hay.
John has been on a never-ending rolling adventure since his workings away from the cherished, Mercury Prize nominated Mancunian band,I Am Kloot. February 23rd 2024 marked the release of the acclaimed, sophomore album ‘The Light Fantastic‘.
‘A unique both literally and metaphorically’ – Lauren Laverne ‘My favourite songwriter of all time’ – Cate Blanchett [who chose Bramwell-penned ‘Proof’ as her Desert Island Disk on the BBC Radio 4 show] ‘The UK’s finest export’ New York Times ‘Bramwell’s new songs are spellbinding’ The Guardian
Lauded across the board, ‘The Light Fantastic‘ is a masterclass in emotionally charged and melodically driven tunes for the adventurous. “After both my Mum and Dad died, I started writing these songs to cheer myself up,” John admits with typical candour. “The themes are taken from my dreams at the time. Wake up and take whatever impression I had from what I could remember of my dream and write that.” Despite the sentiment, the songs are surprisingly uplifting and have been lighting up, and selling out, countless live shows across the country.
‘Wonderfully grown-up pop music delivered by an adept songwriter’ – 4* MOJO

‘A splendid solo set of sumptuous vocal harmonies’ – UNCUT

‘The regular harmonising with his cast of supporting musicians is especially beautiful’ CLASH

‘Bramwell goes for the kind of classic melody-rich songwriting reminiscent of Tim Hardin, Neil Young and other introspective types... this is hazy music with purpose, and very pretty with it’ – The Times, 4/5 -for more info and music
