Deaf Havana vocalist James Veck Gilodi is teaming up with long time creative collaborator Jon Stone and LiveFrom Events for a special livestream performance at London’s St. Pancras Church.
“With the suspension of the live music industry this collaboration is trying to find a new and exciting way to capture James’ unique energy and present a live show which can be watched from the comfort of the fans’ homes,” Jon explains. “The growing importance of live-streaming within the music industry means finding innovative ways to enhance the viewing experience through our collective passion and creativity. We hope the fans will enjoy the show!”
James adds “Initially, when Jon approached me a couple of months back about doing a live stream, I wasn’t too sure, as I’m not really a big fan of livestreams. They don’t usually capture the energy that we all need when we go to see live music. Jon and I talked extensively about how we could try and capture something that was visually stunning, but could also recreate that buzz you get from seeing a performance in real life. I’ve always been a fan of reworked versions so I’ve jumped at the chance to create some slightly stranger and more out-there versions of our pre-existing songs. The end product is going to be, visually, the best performance video I have ever been involved in and I’m incredibly excited for everyone to join us.”
£10 tickets to the solo performance which is to be streamed online on July 19 at 20:00 BST are available now at livefrom.events/deafhavana
