Erin Lang & The Foundlings to stop off in Cardiff



Riding in on the back of a European tour with Canadian blues folk experimentalists Timer Timbre, Erin Lang & The Foundlings will be gracing the stage of 10 Feet Tall in Cardiff on the 13th September 2011. Sharing mutual friends, Lang contacted Cardiff based musician Jo Whitby and suggested organising a joint show in the Welsh capital having heard Jo’s project Laurence Made Me Cry. The night is set to be a fantastic folk filled event with handpicked local support artists Colourful Thief and SCRIBER finalising the bill.
Erin Lang & The Foundlings have just finished recording with Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Unicorns, Timber Timbre) and Taylor Kirk (frontman/producer of Timber Timbre) working on their second album ‘Between You and the Sea’ to be released this fall. With Taylor and Mark co-producing and guest appearances from members of Timber Timbre, Arcade Fire and Godspeed You Black Emperor along with the Foundlings’ orchestral arrangements the album promises to be filled with eerie reflective soundscapes supporting Erin’s sweet and darkly poetic vocals.

Erin is a singer and multi instrumentalist and together with The Foundlings, makes a kind of orchestral fantasy art folk. In the Summer of 2010 they released their first full length album ‘You Are Found’ recorded with musical director Roger O’Donnell (The Cure) and Mario Thaler, producer of the indie electronic bands The Notwist, Lali Puna and Ms John Soda, at Uphon Studios in Weilheim, Germany. ‘You Are Found’ is released on London based label 99xoutof10. The Foundlings have been playing shows in South America, Canada and the USA in support of the album.

Lang recently moved back to her hometown of Montreal from the UK and brought the Foundlings together. Erin is from a creative and musical background having grown up in Montreal with her puppeteer mother and father the bass player for APRIL WINE. She played bass in bands across the US and Canada before moving to London and working with Roger O’Donnell. Upon hearing her unique singing voice Roger asked her to collaborate on one of his side projects and strongly encouraged her to focus on her own songwriting which eventually led to the pair making Lang’s first album together. Since her move back to her hometown, together with the Foundlings, Lang has been knitted into the fabric of Montreal’s quirky and artsy indie scene creating music for documentaries, poets and video artists and has performed in all manner of interesting spaces from punk sewer slowdances to photographers loft shows to fringe festivals.
