Win tickets to Communion: The Staves & Paul Thomas Saunders @ Academy 2 this Saturday!

The Staves; Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, have been making music together since they were children, growing up in Watford, England. Brought up in a house that echoed to the sounds of Simon & Garfunkel, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Beatles, singing in perfect 3-part harmony came naturally to these three sisters. Having started gigging in local pubs and cafes, The Staves are now captivating audiences on much bigger stages – earning rapturous encores with their exquisite songs of love & longing. Guaranteed to give you goosebumps, their extraordinary intertwining voices melt the most cynical of hearts. The Staves' "Mexico EP" will be released later this year via Atlantic Records.

With influences such as Joe Meek and Leonard Cohen, Paul Thomas Saunders encapsulates both the psychedelic soundscape and intellectual sentimentality that the sixties graced us with, then wraps it up in a spiraling contemporary shell. Paul brings his unique blend of ethereal guitars, haunting harmonies and tingling folk sounds to Communion Dublin marking his Irish debut performance. 

Communion launched in Dublin last year to tremendous reception and won the hearts of so many music fans after hosting an impressive string of events, showcasing artists such as Nathaniel Rateliff, Cloud Castle Lake, We Cut Corners and Lisa O’Neill. Following a cheeky summer holiday, spent drinking copious amounts of red wine and spying on fresh talent at festivals Green Man, Electric Picnic, Spirit of Folk and even Belladrum in the highlands of Scotland, Communion Dublin have returned to launch a monthly event showcasing the finest upcoming talent at one of Dublin’s most respected live music venues – The Academy 2

Communion was founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), bassist Kevin Jones and acclaimed producer Ian Grimble – it endeavors to fill the gap for good, honest and independent music and push the boundaries of live music.
