The Last Inklings + Ellie Gowers LIVE @ The Sound Lounge Sutton (Double Header)

  • The Last Inklings

    The Last Inklings

    Folk

    The Last Inklings create music that inspires wonder and intrigue through original songwriting. Their innovative sound focuses on cello, mandolin, and violin layered with vocal harmony. With vibrant backstories and creative musicianship their songs have a modern flavour, rich with imagery and narrative.

    This musical duo is formed of multi-instrumentalists David Hoyland and Leonardo MacKenzie (also of the Ninebarrow Band). As former members of the acclaimed folk trio Kadia, they are rapidly growing a reputation for their live performances.

    Their songs are largely inspired by modern myths and superstitions with a wide range of inspirations including Carl Jung, Neil Gaiman, Alfred Hitchcock, and Edgar Allen Poe.

    Their debut EP, “Alchemy” draws on the idea of striving to refine our inner gold, as well as influences ranging from the English Chronicles and Stoic philosophy, to the breathtaking powers of the natural world.

    With songs about people, creatures, landscapes, and legends, all firmly rooted in the realm of storytelling, the music is rich with intriguing ideas and creative concepts.

    The Last Inklings derive their name from an famous Oxford literary group whose former members included JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis. It served as a creative safe space for it’s members to bring their work to the table for sharing and discussion.


    Having previously played together on main stages at Cambridge, Oxford, Broadstairs, Southwell, Priddy, Swanage, and Purbeck Valley Festivals, they have also had the pleasure of supporting artists such as Nancy Kerr, Jackie Oates, Jim Moray, Chris Leslie, Gilmore and Roberts, The Willows, Nizlopi, and Ninebarrow among many others.

    Ellie Gowers

    Contemporary Folk

    Ellie Gowers has been making an impression wherever she lands. Her music embeds a fierce energy that echoes the 60’s folk revival scene and she is known to hold pride of place on stage with her strong and lucent vocals. Her songs are built from a childhood love of literature and traditional folk song, but also discuss the more modern narratives of the present day. These influences fuse together to create a sound that has been deemed unique and incomparable.

    In the last two years, Ellie has released the EP From Here on Out and followed that with her latest single Against the Tide which earned her a TedX talk. Both of these were welcomed with a good reception from listeners. These songs have been toured widely, both in headline shows and support slots for critically acclaimed artists, up and down the UK.

    After the unpredictable circumstances that 2020 brought with it, Ellie found herself making good use of her time, beginning to work on projects she had only ever thought about. Collaborations were done with friends new and old, songs were written, a festival was played, and she was also included in the line up of the Filkin’s Drift Ensemble, covering Arthur McBride.

    Ellie enters 2021 with a brand new EP named Parting Breath, an ode to Robert Burns’ Auld Lang Syne, which will be released in March.
