Manchester musician LoneLady will play a twice-weekly residency at Homeground, HOME’s outdoor summer venue on First Street, throughout July.
LoneLady was the first artist play the Bruntwood Stage on Homeground’s opening weekend and we’re delighted to have her back for a residency this July. The recent launch of her highly acclaimed album ‘Former Things’ has received extensive coverage on BBC Radio 6 Music, and audiences to Homeground are in for a treat.
Every Thursday and Friday throughout July, LoneLady will take audiences on a journey through a series of two contrasting evenings exploring the worlds of post punk, electronic and funk music, diving deep into music past and present that LoneLady loves and music that has influenced her.
For her Thursday evening sets, Murky Thursdays, you can expect to hear all LoneLady’s atmospheric post-punk favourites studded with hidden gems from the Manc underbelly.
Friday evenings sets, ElectroShocked! Fridays, will be Uptempo selections of dance, electro, funk and techno.
Julie Campbell, A.K.A LoneLady, is a musician, songwriter, singer and producer from Manchester, England. Inspired by British post-punk Julie first started making recordings in the early-mid 2000s on a 4-track cassette recorder in her towerblock flat in Manchester while completing a Fine Art Degree. As her name indicates LoneLady writes, performs and records all the components of her music, building up her own sound worlds in a solitary creative process.
Created on electronic sequencers, synths and drum machines in a basement bunker beneath Somerset House, London, LoneLady’s 3rd studio album ‘Former Things’ is a tour-de-force of punch-and-crunch electro, R’n’B and pop, shot through with mournful eulogies to the lost golden age of childhood and youth.
The announcement follows the highly successful curation of Homeground’s Bruntwood Stage DJ sets throughout May and June by DJ Paulette which features 50 of Manchester’s best DJs playing family-friendly weekday teatime sets across an eclectic mix of club, alternative, pop, R’n’B, soul and electronic music. DJ Paulette Presents Together will also continue throughout July and August.
Entry to The Bruntwood Stage at Homeground is free of charge, but people are advised to book a table at Homeground’s Food and Drink terrace to guarantee a space.
