A STREAMING LIVE SHOW FROM BRIGHTON ELECTRIC TOOK PLACE ON NOVEMBER 1st IN SUPPORT OF #WeMakeEvents
NEW ALBUM ‘SNAPSHOT’ OUT ON 23RD OCTOBER VIA NUDE RECORDS
Juanita Stein and full band performed a live show from Brighton’s Electric that streamed on demand for 24 hours from Sunday, 1st November. Tickets for the show were £8, with £1 from every ticket sold going to the #WeMakeEvents campaign in support of the live music industry.
A BIG THANK YOU TO JAUNITA AND HER TEAM FROM EVERYONE AT #WeMakeEvents.
Stein played a set including songs from her third solo album, ‘Snapshot’, which was released via Nude Records on 23rd October. The Brighton Electric date was a hometown show for Juanita, who first became known for her work as the singer and guitarist in Howling Bells. On how the show came about, Stein says:
“Having played a series of home sessions during the peak of lockdown, I experienced a surprisingly rewarding connection with the audience. It felt like we were all in something together, working it out. I figured an elevated version of this to celebrate the release of my album “Snapshot” would be the way to go. I feel compelled to really honour the full sound of the record and give people something special during this exceptionally bizarre and challenging time. I’ll be playing with a full band and we’ll be filming the performance at our local studio, Brighton Electric, where we’d usually be rehearsing for a string of shows right about now.”Juanita Stein
Stein says of the #WeMakeEvents campaign:
“#WeMakeEvents is working hard to raise funds and get government assistance in order to help the live sector survive this immense crisis. The UK alone employs over 1,000,000 people within the sector, and Every. Single. Person I know working in the industry right now is struggling. So, if i’m able to make the smallest dent in raising awareness via the show, then I’d be truly happy.”Juanita Stein
