Me Lost Me + Alastair Gordon
Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with songwriting and storytelling, creating a beguiling mix of soaring vocals and atmospheric electronics that playfully push the boundaries of genre. Led by Newcastle-based artist Jayne Dent who takes influence from folk, art pop, noise, ambient and improvised music, the project has transformed since 2017 from a solo endeavor to an expanded group; regularly collaborating with acclaimed North-East jazz musicians Faye MacCalman and John Pope. Me Lost Me’s music has been described in The Guardian as ‘stripping folk back to its bones while letting its future echoes bleed out’, and by BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson as a ‘brilliant peculiar noise’.
Alastair Gordon performs a mix of traditional and original finger-picked folk & blues delivered in a rich baritone shaped by years of busking. Lyrical content reflects a life split between South Yorkshire and North Saxony and a creative approach to guitar and harmonica reflect adventurous listening habits. His latest releases “Brambles” and “A Happy Sound” were launched in Sheffield to sold-out audiences – the live show underpinned by over a decade of gigging around the UK and Germany.
