Lawrence Arabia Announces 'Single' Solo Piano Tour

Lawrence Arabia Announces 'Single' Solo Piano Tour

C.C. / Tuesday 11th February, 2020 9:33AM

Aotearoa's "pre-eminent chronicler of 21st Century bourgeois dilemmas" Lawrence Arabia, the songwriting nom de plume of James Milne, returns to local stages this autumn, to tinkle the ivories on an intimate run of solo piano performances across the North Island. The multiple award winner's latest 'Single' tour follows on from Milne's creatively prolific Singles Club project, which saw the artist release a new song every single month over a twelve month period, throughout 2018 and early 2019, with special guest contributors including Hollie Fullbrook of Tiny Ruins and legendary US songwriter / arranger Van Dyke Parks. Lawrence Arabia recently hit the headlines with his description of Christchurch's new central business district as a "a strangely hollow experience" – gig-goers can look forward to more clear-eyed social commentary in the form of stripped back re-imaginings of tunes from the artist's back catalogue in March and April, including a Hastings appearance alongside The Veils' frontman Finn Andrews...
