AB treats you to a spring full of singer-songwriter splendour

 

Gems from the American scene

AB brings a few full-blooded Americans to Brussels for you. Think: strong songs with a subtle or not so subtle nod to their country roots. Concerts for fans of the likes of Ryley Walker, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.

ADAM TORRES 

Cult singer-songwriter blessed with an angelic voice.

Four times formidable, four times female 

That women are steadily taking over the singer-songwriter genre, doesn’t need to be said twice. AB presents four very different artists who combine a fragile vocal sound with exceptional songwriting and impressive lyrics. Do you go weak at the sound of Perfume Genius and Charlotte Gainsbourg or can you not sit still for the vibes of Coely and consorts? Then don’t miss these concerts.

And now for something entirely different …

Everyone knows that we in AB like to do things differently. This spring, there are a number of unique projects on offer that have nestled themselves into the singer-songwriter tradition. 
Not to be missed, if you love avant-garde, experiment, mystery and cult.

Folk-rock with a twist

This is the real deal for everyone who revers John Mayer and Ryan Adams. The guitar sound is placed front and centre, in an acoustic or full band setting. Basically: smart songwriting with a pop feel, where the melancholy rock ‘n’ roll vibe is never far removed.
