About the event
Bity Booker is an Italian/Australian psych-folk singer songwriter and illustrator based in London. Her music and illustrations have a strong connection with the natural world and animals. Bity grew up in an artistic family in the countryside in Umbria, she graduated from Art School in Italy and lived between Italy, Australia and England. In her teens she sang in a number of metal bands, alongside writing her own original material with classical guitar and voice. Over the years she released a number of EPs, one album, and two illustrated song books, 'The Mouse Song' and 'Parrots in London'.
Bity's new EP 'Dreaming in the Morning' (5 March 2022) was recorded in 2021 at home on a tape machine, the songs are a dreamy ode to nature, about that instant when alone with your mind in the woods, you become one with the trees and the birds and everything seems to fall into place, quietly.
Bity lives in South London, she regularly plays gigs, records her music with analogue equipment at home and illustrates at her desk while her guitar rests.
Six Go Through the World will join her in the evening's programme.
