Kinda Grizzly Presents Sean Rogan // Caitlin LM // Louis Campbell *NEW DATE*
- Buy Tickets
The eclectic composer and Manchester-dweller Sean Rogan approaches music with a clear motive: to innovate, collaborate and communicate. Rogan’s back catalogue of musical projects has evolved over the years, from playing and writing with dream-pop outfit Diving Station, to Manchester’s ‘pop visionary’ MYTBE, and countless appearances as a guitarist and a producer in other projects. He has performed around the UK extensively, both as a solo artist and with Diving Station, who were seen on festival lineups including Glastonbury, Bluedot, and Kendal Calling.
Sean Rogan released his first EP ‘To Speak’ in early 2021. Informed by years of collaboration, the EP gave him an opportunity to curate the recording process with various performers in a style akin to Frank Ocean, Bon Iver and Kanye West. The EP received praise and support from local radiostations and blogs, and regular airplay from Amazing Radio, where a live session was also
featured for their CMJ Music Marathon. With self-recorded, broken soundscapes accompanying highly introspective lyrics, this EP signalled the start of an expansive yet intimate take on the singer-songwriter approach. Following the release of ‘To Speak’, Rogan to and froed regularly between the buzz of Rusholme and the quaintness of Marple to compose and record a new body of work for release on the UK/Australian label Kinda Grizzly. The first single from this project is ‘Neighbour’, a story of openness, community and mental barriers, with more music to be shared and live shows later in 2021.
Somerset raised Louis Campbell has a background in traditional folk music and a huge love for post-rock, electronic music and experimentation. His solo work is a chance to explore these sides together. He has been lucky enough to study with Martin Simpson and performed at festivals as diverse as Sidmouth Folk Week and Arctangent, he also plays guitar for Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead, Leveret) and has been nominated for the BBC Young Folk Award with Fiddle player Owen Spafford.
Caitlin LM is an alt-pop artist, hailing from Manchester, UK. Having lost both parents a year apart, her music is a haunting yet optimistic reflection on what matters most in life. Her luscious vocal harmonies and electronic undertones are reminiscent of artists such as James Blake, Moses Sumney, Kate Bush and Thom Yorke, but with a gentle northern hue.
