Library Lates

Library Lates returns for its spring instalment. Music, art, performance and games curiously weaved throughout the building once again.


Nierra Creek (9:30-10:30)

Generating from the south of England, 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 BBCIntroducing) and Switzerland’s Out In The Green Garden Festival. Along with several SOFAR sounds intimate shows. The band have also toured the UK with Communion’s MarthaGunn 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.

Alex Hart (8-9)

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 with her biggest influences being Sheryl Crow & Norah Jones it was no surprise that when Alex Hart started sharing her voice and songs at live gigs in her hometown she was instantly noticed and discovered by some of the music industry’s most influential producers and record labels.

As well as a busy touring schedule, Alex is constantly working on new music ready for new releases in 2023, Alex sold a staggering 10,000 copies of her self made, self produced album “Under the Covers” that she recorded and released at her home studio during lockdown in 2020.

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.
