Margaret Glaspy is making her live London debut this summer.
The California-born singer, who is readying the release of her first album, has a headline performance at Moth Club on 23 August 2016, two days after appearing at Green Man Festival.
Preceded by the single ‘You and I’, ‘Emotions And Math’ reflects the 26-year-old singer-songwriter’s influences, which range from Elliott Smith and Bill Withers to Joni Mitchell.
“‘Blue’ set the bar in my mind that I’m always striving for,” says Glaspy, who, from an early age, was performing on instruments as diverse as fiddle and trombone.
“I went to Berklee College of Music in Boston for a semester and paid for it with money I got from the YoungArts Program,” she elaborates. “I wasn’t able to afford school after that semester, so I snuck into workshops and master classes at the school and started to write songs more seriously.”
She also began playing in several bands, eventually amassing enough songs for a solo album. Recorded at Sear Sound Studio in New York City and self-produced by Glaspy, ‘Emotions And Math’ was mixed by Shawn Everett, known for his work with Alabama Shakes and Weezer.
Glaspy is currently touring the US with artists like Milk Carton Kids and Lucius. ‘Emotions And Math’ is released on 17 June.
