Friday 27. January - Sofa Salon and Songs & Whispers present a living room concert: Gillian Grassie (USA) and Adam Donen (SA)
Sofa Salon is back for 2012 and is collaborating with Bremen collective Songs and Whispers to present a Berlin living room concert for Gillian Grassie and Adam Donen.

Philadelphia-based Gillian is a talented folk pop singer-songwriter and harpist with a jazz-infused rhythmic style and a soulful, supple voice. The quirky intimate detail in her songs make her kin to artists like Feist, Fiona Apple, Laura Marling and Regina Spektor.

Adam Donen, a South African poet, based in London, has developed an ornate, overtly gothic combination of music and poetry rooted in classical, religious music that explores loss of faith and sensual immersion in the physical world. His sound draws on artists like Josh T. Pearson and Leonard Cohen.

Doors at 19:00. Entry is 6€. Reserve your places with an email to
