*****************************************************************************

Host of the evening Joel Smith, is an Australian-born, London-based musician, singer, songwriter, writer, sound engineer and DJ.

Having led bands from Brisbane, Australia before moving to London to pursue new directions, he now performs with multi-national Ambient/Dream/Psych Rock group Los Capivaras, with a debut release due 2018.

Since arriving to his adopted base in Hackney Wick in early 2013, Smith has developed a rich performance vocabulary, performing solo acoustic alongside shifting experimental ensembles. Constant collaboration with a multitude of international artists, designers, DJ’s and musicians have allowed Smith to hone his experimental, effects-laden guitar and soaring falsetto vocals through many improvised and one-off performances.

2017 and 2018 have seen Smith turn his focus towards live, improvised film score collaborations, giving inspired performances, recently extending to France.

You can also catch him regularly singing Jazz standards, acoustic shows, playlisting rare gems from Punk, Folk, Disco, Afro-beat, Turkish to Latin American Folk-tronica, and also running the monthly Open Mic night at Grow, Hackney.

He will be airing some of his written work from his recent residency at THE LAB - https://thelabhackneywick.wordpress.com/

LOS CAPIVARAS ALBUM LAUNCH // PSYCH ROCK

LOS CAPIVARAS ALBUM LAUNCH // PSYCH ROCK

This November 25th, locally formed, independent Super Group, LOS CAPIVARAS return to GROW, Hackney for their highly anticipated, self-titled Album launch, and also to farewell singer-guitarist-songwriter Joel Smith on his journey Down Under.

In support will be DJs Duz, Papa Chango and DJ Royden (Koma Jazzz), otherwise known as M.B.O.N. (Mixed Bag of Nuts), will be playing a varied selection through the night, keeping the warmth, energy and good vibrations up .

Plus a special guest to perform in the Green House... Stay tuned!

A donation box will be available to support the group's otherwise self-funded album production.

Pre-orders for limited copy vinyl pressing (psst. perfect Xmas present idea) will be taken through the group on the night, or through loscapivarasband@gmail.com.

Los Capivaras

Los Capivaras are a 5 piece Experimental group formed in Hackney Wick, London.

After an improvised, impromptu 2016 Halloween performance, Los Capivaras became Joel Smith (Guitar, Vocals), Lala Padula (Bass, Keys), Kevin Gras (Synth), Felipe Campo Peres (Drums and Percussion) and Bernardo Varela (Percussion and Bass).

With roots in France, Australia, Brazil and United Kingdom, they cover broad musical terrain. Los Capivaras’ music could be described as Impressionist Psych Rock, creating dialogue between tonalities and counterpoint, drawing emotional response, and taking the listener through a journey of moving structures and motifs to tell their stories.

Alongside their debut album due in late 2018, they have been specialising in performing live, improvised film scores, while preparing material for their second release, due in 2019.

On their 2018 debut titled Los Capivaras LP, the group explores heavy, swamp-like blues textures in the opening track Andy Peacehole.

The second track, Baby Horses, shows a brighter, more candid atmosphere, lighter guitar tones and a more hopeful groove.

At The End It’s Just Sand is the third track that takes the listener into the Capivaras’ mix between Brazilian grooves and tonal bass lines embellished with Turkish-influenced lead guitar.

The four-track, 40 minute journey climaxes in a finale of guitar solos, falsetto singing, expressive keyboard motifs and thundering drums on Underwater Hotel Room.

About Grow, Hackney

Carved out of an old sausage factory, Grow has been transformed into an independent canal side bar, kitchen and creative space. It was built, and is run by a small team. We operate as a ethical and sustainable business and rely on the creative sharing economy of Hackney Wick and the surrounding area. We partner with artists, musicians, DJ's and community groups to and hold as many free events as we can. We have a range of craft and organic drinks at the bar and Slow Fire London serve a seasonal menu freshly prepared in the canalside kitchen.
