h. eldritch exists on the fringes of indie folk, dirty electronica and ambient music.
Weaving cryptic tales of tragedy between swirling ambience and whirring, fizzing electronics, h stands alone on the stage, flitting between guitars, synths, drums, and a microphone, bringing his indie electronic orchestrations to life as if you were in the studio creating them with him.
His unmistakable sound and unforgettable live show won him an opening slot on the main stage of the Bath Festival 70th Anniversary weekend, headlined by Paloma Faith and Robert Plant.
With little regard for genre or convention, his debut EP ‘Trouble Enough Will Find Us’ (produced with Tim Morris; Enter Shikari and mastered by Dick Beetham; Alt-J, Seth Lakeman) re-imagines what it means to be a singer-songwriter.
h gives you the ghosts and the machines.
h. eldritch is my primary original music project.
h. eldritch is my idiosyncratic vision of what a solo artist truly means to me, where I act as the primary artist, writer, producer and content creator. Creating, launching and releasing my debut as h. eldritch 'Trouble Enough Will Find Us' served as my primary focus and Major Project during my final year of my Integrated MA in Commercial Music at Bath Spa University. My DIY release campaign was a resounding success for a brand new artist and earned me my Distinction grade. Musically, the EP mixes folk, electronic and ambient music to create a magical, impressionistic word for the listener to inhabit. The musical aesthetic is mirrored in all h. eldritch visual content, which I also create. I perform live with a self-designed hybrid acoustic/electronic multi-instrument set up that comprises multiple guitars, drums, a vocoder and a laptop, with my own in-ear monitoring and rack DI rig. The show I have created is dramatic, memorable, and not like anyone else's.
h. eldritch is a culmination of so many different creative ambitions of mine, as well as all my heart and soul.
Give it a listen if it sounds interesting.
