Multi-instrumentalist Joe da Costa from South London is composer, singer and producer Beg Friend. Combining guitar led folk, intricate electronica and intimate vocal lines, his cinematic and alternative pop sound is underpinned with a lyrically poetic sensibility. The resulting songs can be found nestled stylistically between the emotional directness of Elliot Smith, the delicacy of Bon Iver and the electronic experimentation of Thom Yorke… Following on the heels of his debut single ‘For The Win’ this gig marks the release of his new EP ‘Make Shift’ ‘on Babylegs Records, home to Mesadorm.

“…like falling into a gorgeous dream from which you never want to wake.” Rick Pearson, Evening Standard

“Beg Friend’s sound is cinematic but also deeply pop – beautiful”  Where The Music Meets



Faultress creates incisive and psychological songs that offer us a look into the complex fragmentation of feminine power, desire and mental health in a rapidly changing musical and cultural world. With a diverse set of influences that includes the likes of Kate Bush, James Blake, Aldous Harding, FKA Twigs and Joni Mitchell, Faultress plays both solo and in ensemble form (the full band show features an epic six-part girl choir replete with synths and drums). Playing solo at The Harrison tonight, she will perform with piano and loop stations.
