We are delighted to welcome Howling Bells lead Woman, Juanita Stein to the shop for a very intimate acoustic show.
This performance will come a few days after the release of her debut solo record, America, out on 28th July via Nude Records.
Juanita had already announced UK festival dates this summer, including with Tom Petty in Hyde Park and at Cambridge Folk Festival, ahead of a brace of headline shows – in her adopted hometown of Brighton and in London – the week the album is released.
check out the lead dreamy single to be taken from her album, which was recorded in Los Angeles with the producer Gus Seyffert, ‘
“‘I’ll Cry’ is a musical ode to the all-American greats I took my cues from as a budding songwriter,” says Stein. “Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and the work of Phil Spector, all of whom made a significant imprint on my heart, I’m forever channeling that soulful sadness.
“I’ll Cry is a song that speaks of an impossible love, his resistance, her infatuation. Never a happy ending.”
Reserve using this link below and Juantia will be happy to scribble on anything you buy on the night:) and you’ll also gain Priority entry.
It’s free to get in of course, but only to the first 60 odd people. (on a first come first served (let in) basis:) We’ll close the shop at approx 4pm to prepare, and let folks in at approx 4:50pm.
Witty pie and filling chosen by Juanita announced very soon!

More info on Juanita Stein and the record below. See you there!
Stein formed Howling Bells with her brother, Joel, and friends when they moved to London together in 2004. Four acclaimed albums followed, along with headline tours and festival shows around the world, and huge support dates including several US tours with Coldplay and The Killers. A break from Howling Bells around the arrival of her first child saw the first shoots of her solo work start to emerge, and now we find ourselves here. America, an unpredictable place, forever bound up in a uniquely widescreen hope and romance.
An evocative and beautiful record (produced by Gus Seyffert (Beck, Ryan Adams) in L.A.), Stein’s honeyed voice weaves stories of heartbreak and optimism, from the unmistakably Western-influenced Dark Horse, to the moody love song, Cry. Florence is inspired by a reallife photograph by Dorothea Langue, taken during the Great Depression, of the eponymous Florence Owens Thompson, a tale of a struggle for themselves and their children that’s as relevant to women of the world today as it ever was. The songs on the LP tell tales of characters real and imagined, Stein’s own experiences woven amongst them. “This record is an ode to the dark heart of America. The music of Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Lee and Nancy and Patsy Cline all informed my musical sensibilities. They opened up this wide screen universe for me.” – Juanita Stein.
