HEAVY AND WEIRD PRESENTS: Loving The Alien – A Tribute To David Bowie – Artist Announcement – four of nine – June Low

jl

Heavy and Weird are proud to announce the fourth of nine artists performing at “Loving The Alien: A Tribute to David Bowie”

June Low

June Low is the project of singer-songwriter, Emma White. Best served with a glass of red, her songs dish up flavours of love, disaster and nostalgia but always leave you feeling full. Her music slithers with an intense heat. You can almost feel the perspiration dripping from each note she performs. Her music has a power to it that stops you in your tracks and requires you to just be still. The seductive swoon of her debut album “Exhale” allows you to be taken to that zone where you are desperately trying to find the hope after the heartbreak. A true poet and disciple of the ache that allows for all good stark pop music to be communicated.

“Right now, it feels as if the solar system is off it’s axis, as if one of our main planetary anchors has lost it’s orbit. That said – I am certain that wherever Bowie is now – I want to be there someday.” – Micheal Stipe

For 69 years David Bowie was a gift bestowed upon planet earth to help our species understand the power and importance of pop music. There was something truly Alien about his presence that gave hope to the freaks among us that we had a spokesman. His curiosity for the weird and wonderful avant-garde artforms helped inform and influence the music he made. Bowie understood and believed in the unpopular, the insignificant and the overlooked humans of society and he gave them a voice. David Bowie was a warm hug for the alienated youth of every generation from 1960 through to 2016 and his influence and power went way beyond just being another pop singer. He invented new ways of communicating musically and he also championed the artists and bands that the music industry elite chose to ignore. There is a lot to celebrate when it comes to David Bowie but his greatest legacy is the way he has inspired the other aliens among us to pick up an instrument and to express themselves through art and music.

Despite his iconic fashion statements it was Bowie’s music that mattered most and on 14th May 2016 Heavy and Weird are proud to be curating their first live musical event – “Loving The Alien” – A Tribute to David Bowie

This event will see a diverse group of artists pay tribute to the music of David Bowie and to dive a bit deeper into his catalouge to share with you some of his most popular and unpopular songs. This is a celebration of alienation and how Bowie’s music helped save and give purpose and comfort and remedy to that feeling of being different to everyone else.
