“Jonathan Spottiswoode, the backbone of this tight group, has a deep, rough-hewn voice that’s evocative of Leonard Cohen’s. He writes astringent ballads and groovy pop songs with equal aplomb.”  The New Yorker

For over 2 decades, Spottiswoode & His Enemies have been a constantly self-reinventing New York institution. The IMA winners recently earned three more nominations for their 7th record, Lost In The City, “an immersive theater-of-the-mind love letter to New York”. Spottiswoode’s songs appear in numerous TV shows and films including Either Side Of Midnight for which he also wrote the screenplay.

Listen to Spottiswoode’s music here on Bandcamp:

Jonathan Spottiswoode has recently moved back to London, where he’s found musical companions in the great performers, Jonny Gee on bass and Matti Müller on guitar. This should be an entertaining night of great music. Possibly only marred by the threatened guest appearance by Andy Williamson on saxophone.
