“This is an amazing act” Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
Throughout their extended UK and European tours The Little Unsaid has gained a reputation for leaving audiences wide-eyed and emotionally riveted, with impassioned and cathartic live shows that have been described as sliding between Nick Cave-esque intensity and the tender, poetic sincerity of Leonard Cohen.
With the project’s creator, songwriter and vocalist John Elliott at the helm, the band lineup is tailored to each specific performance, shape-shifting around its various collaborators including the Southfield String Quartet, percussionist and programmer Tim Heymerdinger, and bassist Lukas Drinkwater.
The recently released album Fisher King – mixed by Graeme Stewart, long-time Radiohead engineer and Jonny Greenwood collaborator – is their third to be crowd-funded by a dedicated fanbase. “giddying conflation of folk, electronic and lavish orchestration… one of the genre’s grandest successes so far” Dots and Dashes
Frequent radio play on BBC 2, BBC 6 and live sessions on countrywide stations have helped amass a devoted fanbase.
John and the band will continue to tour the UK and Europe extensively throughout Spring 2016 before returning to Glastonbury and other major festivals in the summer. With their rigorous work ethic and a rapidly expanding repertoire of beguiling songs that seek to dig out the hope from some of the darkest depths of human experience, 2016 is set to be a monumental year for The Little Unsaid.
