Would you like to see The Staves live in concert at the De la Warr Pavilion on the 6th November?
Camilla, Jessica and Emily Staveley-Taylor are a three-piece folk rock girl band who have just released their new EP Blood I Bled in anticipation of their forthcoming album If I Was.
With the gig being based at the De la Warr Pavilion, there is no better place to catch The Staves live in action. The venue will be celebrating its 80th anniversary on December 12. Along with The Staves, the De la Warr has gigs lined up with Everything Everything and The Waterboys; it’s an attractive place which attracts 300,000 people annually.
The Staves released their debut album back in 2012, but since then they have been on the road for three years, as well as joining Mumford & Sons during their 2013 Glastonbury headline slot and several tours with American cult heroes Bon Iver. They have come back bigger and better, with the new songs being multi-layered and hugely ambitious as a result of their time on the road.
Blood I Bled opens their second album, but according to the youngest of the three sisters Camilla, it nearly made it onto the first album: “But it just wasn’t ready. It didn’t sit with anything else and we didn’t really know how to finish it off.” The sisters spent a lot of their time in Wisconsin recording and it was here they met John Vernon (better known as Bon Iver). They said it was a great experience, Camilla said: “We were really itching to have a break and to let out all this stuff that we hadn’t had the chance to express. Fortunately we found a place with Justin’s studio where we were allowed to do whatever we wanted.”
