Phil Shoenfelt & Pavel Cingl – live music concert at the 12 Bar Club, London.

Phil Shoenfelt is an English singer/songwriter/guitarist who has lived in Prague since 1995. Together with multi-instrumentalist Pavel Cingl, he will make a rare London appearance at the 12 Bar Club in Denmark Street, London W1, on Monday 31st of March. Shoenfelt, who has made eleven CDs to date, and Cingl (ex-Ivan Hlas & Nahlas, Snake Eaters and Dobrohošť), have just finished work on a new live CD, which they recorded at klub/galerie Nová Síň in Prague last December.

 

The CD, “Live At The House Of Sin”, contains 13 songs in an electro/acoustic setting (voice/guitar/violin/mandolin), and the 12 Bar Club appearance will reflect this intimate mood. The evening will include performances by Berlin-based singer Mark Mullholland (Scotland) and the up-and-coming Jason McNiff, both of whom will also be launching new CDs. The running order of the evening hasn’t yet been announced, so get there early to make sure you don’t miss Phil & Pavel. Doors open at 7.30.

“Vocally, Shoenfelt reminds this writer a little of Iggy (in his croonsome moments circa "Blah Blah Blah"), or maybe Michael Gira in his Children of God guise, but his rich voice is nicely evocative in its' own right, and his commanding presence ensures every drop of emotion is wrung out of these songs." Tim Peacock, Whisperin‘ and Hollerin‘ (CD review for Ecstatic)

 

Shoenfelt’s career, brilliantly synthesized in his friend Nikki Sudden’s liner notes, has a number of eerie parallels with Nick Cave. Aside from the Berlin and Australian geographical connections, both are novelists  whose hedonistic lifestyles have formed the backbone of many of their recordings."  Jeff Penczak, Terrascope (CD review for Deep Horizon)
