The album Black Terry Cat by singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist Xenia Rubinos is now in stores. With a delightfully unique and empowering sound that Spin recently described as “multi-genre-hyphenate instrumental textures beneath Billie Holiday-esque croons” and inspired DIY to declare, “Once Xenia Rubinos begins to sing, nothing else matters,” the talented Rubinos uses her soulful voice to traverse an array of genres from R&B to Hip-Hop to jazz and beyond, all of delivered with a New York punk-funk abandon.
The album finds Rubinos assisted by longtime drummer Marco Buccelli, who produced the album, and Jeremy Loucas as engineer. The three worked an average of 16-17 hours a day for five months to complete the record which is named after “a giant black scraggly cat” that surprised Rubinos one cold night in Brooklyn.
After a stunning performance at Birthdays last year we welcome Xenia to Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen for a hotly-anticipated show.
Fran Lobo is a singer, songwriter and artist hailing from Edmonton in North East London. A singer/songwriter and producer, her dark powerfully soulful vocals are accompanied by the hypnotic sounds of a vintage keytar, eerie electric guitars, deep beats, haunting choral harmonies and synth hooks. With influences ranging from Peter Gabriel, The Pixies, 90’s two-step, garage and house and Billie Holiday, her arresting and moving songs about the darker side of love stay with you long after your first listen.
