Support comes from The Monroe Transfer and Nicolette Corcoran.
Her Name Is Calla
Formed some years ago out of a desire to create music that had a more emotional core, Her Name is Calla have since expanded to a six piece - seven if you include the occasional addition of cello. The music they make is the music they want to make. Encapsulating brass, strings, pianos, oddities and anything else at their disposal, they craft songs and music that have a heart. That heart may not always be the one people are used to - not the bright red shining symbol of love and hope - but a heart that seems somehow more personal than clichéd.
"...there can be no denying that Her Name Is Calla are one of the most daring, unconventional bands the UK has to offer right now. For that alone we should all be exceedingly thankful" Drowned in Sound
"terrific - in terms of both scope and achievement." - The Four

“At their most beautiful, The Monroe Transfer are able to lightly brush the places that so few other instrumental acts can.” – Drowned In Sound
“ an album of stunning beauty, easily the band's best work to date” – The Silent Ballet
“.. with Trials, The Monroe Transfer have shown great imagination in every aspect of their musical venture, whilst also playing up the truly great aspects of the effect that this kind of music can have on your soul” - Line of Best Fit
