Known for his delicate and airy falsetto paired beautifully with instrumental accompaniments, Welsh singer-songwriter Novo Amor (aka Ali Lacey) promises an unmissable evening—“one of trembling, spectral beauty” (MOJO).
Be transported to a space filled with Novo Amor’s beautiful soundscapes, as Lacey performs with frequent collaborator Ed Tullett, backed by a full band featuring strings, keys, guitars and drums. Producing music since 2012, Lacey has been winning over fans with his soulful sound and minimalist lyrics.
About Novo Amor
After returning to his family in Wales from America, Lacey took a job in an ice cream parlour and spent his free time writing songs. Written for a friend’s feature film in 2013, Lacey’s song From Gold seemed to unlock something in him. He began writing a collection of songs which would be released as the Woodgate EP the following year—songs inspired by his time by the lake in upstate New York that were tender, honest and lovestruck.
Amongst the people he met during his career was songwriter and producer Ed Tullett, with whom he forged an immediate bond. Out of that friendship grew a musical collaboration, with a first single, Faux released in 2014 (premiered on NPR and featured on the TV series’ Bones and Pretty Little Liars), followed by the second, Alps, two years later, and then a full-length album, Heiress released via AllPoints.
Novo Amor’s first solo full-length album, Birthplace (released October 2018 via AllPoints) was described by Lacey as “essentially a joyous and celebratory but slightly skewed look at the past” for him. The title song was accompanied by an ambitious and visually stunning music video, directed by Sil & Jorik, that commented on the global plastic waste epidemic. Featuring professional free diver Michael Board and a long whale model made from collected plastic waste, the video was reshared over 1,000 times and won awards including Best Video at the prestigious Camerimage International Film Festival and Independent Video of the Year at the 2018 AIM Awards.
Continuing to highlight important global issues, directors Sil & Jorik and Novo Amor’s most recent collaboration is a 12-minute film set across two chapters, Sleepless and Repeat Until Death, which aims to shine a light on climate change and the devastating impact of air pollution in Mongolia.
Approximately 1 hour 15 minutes, no intermission
