‹ Back to What's On Carleen Anderson

26 May 2017

The seventh solo record from Mercury-nominated singer Carleen Anderson is her ‘best and bravest yet, a deeply poetic take on belonging and exile that pulses with ideas and life’ (The Evening Standard).

Cage Street Memorial chronicles a century of family heritage, performed live by Anderson with Orphy Robinson on vibraphone, percussion from Crispin Robinson, Samy Bishai on violin and Renell Shaw on bass.

Acknowledged by BBC 6Music's Gilles Peterson as one of the most powerful singer/songwriters of her generation, Carleen Anderson has collaborated with musicians including Paul Weller and Ramsey Lewis and was vocalist and composer for the Young Disciples whose album Road to Freedom brought the group international recognition.

For live performances you have to see Carleen Anderson at least three times in your life. She’s someone I’d hang around all day just to hear her sound check.
