Library Lates @ Exeter Library
Library Lates returns to Exeter for a Spring special, when music, art, performance and games will be woven throughout the building once again.
Nierra Creek are Somerset songwriter Ryan Deag and Swiss producer Sebastian Müller. The pair became friends during a last minute scrounge for housing in Brighton. Both share a love for James Blake, Hip Hop, soundscapes and unexpected noise which is the backbone to their sound. 2022 saw Nierra Creek perform at Boardmasters Festival (championed by Daniel Pascoe and Sarah "Gozzo" from BBC Introducing) and Switzerland's Out In The Green Garden Festival, along with several SOFAR sounds intimate shows. They've also toured the UK with Communion's Martha Gunn and are ready to hit the road again in 2023.
Taking sonic influence from indie folk artists Bon Iver to LOW, to production heavy artists Jim-E Stack and Oneohtrix Point Never, Nierra Creek are forging their own unique sound which transcends genre.
Devon born singer-songwriter Alex Hart is proving to be an important addition to the UK's current crop of classy country and roots artists. After mastering the guitar and songwriting skills at the tender age of 14 (her biggest influences being Sheryl Crow & Norah Jones) it was no surprise that Alex was instantly noticed and discovered by some of the music industry’s most influential producers and record labels when she started sharing her voice and songs at live gigs in her hometown.
Alex sold a staggering 10,000 copies of her self-made, self-produced album Under the Covers, recorded and released at her home studio during lockdown in 2020. As well as a busy touring schedule, Alex is now working on new music ready for release in 2023. Alex Hart is not only a talented vocalist, but an accomplished musician too - 2023 is set to be her most successful and exciting year yet!
