Now based in LA, Cate Le Bon is one of Wales’ greatest exports. She is celebrated for her playful lyricism and inventive guitar-pop melodies married with post-punk grit and experimentalism. In 2016, the avant-pop songwriter released her most tantalizing record yet with Crab Day .
Contemporary Music Programmer, Jacob Silkin explained: 'When we started assembling our wish lists for Venus Unwrapped, Cate Le Bon was right up at the top of mine. Uncategorisable and fearless in her creative direction, she’s what this season is about and I’m delighted to have such a singular artist open it. This will be a rare opportunity to hear stripped back variations of her songs in the sublime acoustics of our main hall. I can’t wait!’
