12-12-2018 Dizzy Moon 12: Seven Stars Over Sicily & Jessy Yasmeen
12 december 2018 @ 21:30
Twelfth and extra edition of singer-songwriter series Dizzy Moon, hosted by Mark Ritsema and powered by Popunie. Free entrance.
Seven Stars Over Sicily
Guitarplayer Conrad Freling and singer Daniel Blokker are both connoisseurs of obscure rock, folk and soul from the sixties and seventies. This explains why their band Seven Stars Over Sicily is called after a song by the legendary cult artist John Terlazzo (who gave them his personal blessing). Firm rock with psychedelic vibes and touches of baroque folk forms the foundation of their melodic songs that also reveal influences of eighties underground bands like Crime and the City Solution and Masters Of Reality. Their debut album And Here Comes The Night was recently presented in Grounds and is nominated for the Rotterdam Music Awards 2018. They will perform semi-acoustic in Dizzy, with guitarist Jeroen ‘The Don’ Wessels (ex Bat Attack) frequently switching to cello, theremin and musical saw.

The dreamy and mesmerizing indie-folk songs of Jessy Yasmeen are characterized by her sultry, dark voice. Like a sensuous Nico to a decor of modern folk and ambient. She is a Rotterdam based singer-songwriter with South-American origins. Last year saw the successful release of her first single Alone, which was produced by Martijn Groeneveld (Dotan, Blaudzun, John Coffey). Her debut album Unchain Me is planned for early 2019.
