The former I Am Kloot vocalist, songwriter and guitarist fronts a 6 piece live band for these shows, uniquely including piano and cello.
‘Quite beautiful, utterly compelling and frequently hilarious’ The Guardian
John has been performing as a solo artist and band member for over 30 years. His unique guitar style and distinctive vocal style first broke big worldwide at the backend of the 90s, when Bramwell fronted 3 piece I Am Kloot. Along the way they have released 10 albums, over an almost 20 year history. Each one a brilliant showcase for the vast catalogue of songs John Bramwell has lovingly created.
I Am Kloot were Mercury nominees in 2011, with their masterpiece, the exquisite Sky at Night, produced by Guy Garvey & Craig Potter from Elbow. The follow up, Let It All In was equally as successful reaching the Top 10 albums in 2012.
Leave Alone the Empty Spaces, released Autumn 2017, is John’s first collection of songs since then. A singer and songwriter of his abilities can’t fail to deliver another masterpiece. This show will feature much of that new album, as well as the finest of his back catalogue.
Sage Gateshead welcomes some of the finest indie and alternative rock bands from across the world.
We have something for everyone; families looking to get into the Christmas spirit with a spectacular show; friends and workmates looking to let their hair down and party the night away; and anyone looking to reflect on what Christmas means to them with a more traditional performance. Whatever...
