Northern neo-soul duo Esk perform their debut album People In Their Simplicity at Zeffirelli's this July. Having grown up in Ambleside and the wider Lakes, this will be a special homecoming for the band. Their music video was shot on and around Loughrigg Fell, which has been an important place of influence for them and their music. Known for their ‘beautifully-crafted songs of deceptive simplicity’, emerging artists Evie Hill and Ben Lawrence combine the rural soundscapes in which they grew up with the jazz influences they discovered later in life. Heavily influenced by D’Angelo, Moonchild, and Bon Iver, audiences can expect a night of subtle vocals and beautiful keys playing.
Quote: "a refreshing debut album, with beautifully-crafted songs of deceptive simplicity. Esk captures the spirit of contrasts sitting side-by-side. It’s reassuring to hear such confident new music created by young creatives with a clear sense of purpose." Steve Mead, Artistic Director, manchester jazz festival
