Chilled acoustics

2012-11-30 00:00

DIGBY and The Lullaby perform tonight at St Clements in Musgrave Road, Durban.

The acoustic duo consists of pianist and lead vocalist Rouchelle Hubsch, who plays and sings with a haunting depth of emotion, which far surpasses her 22 years of age.

On guitar and backing vocals is Darren Peens, who fell in love with music when he was six years old.

Collectively influenced by anyone with tons of heart and a great song, Digby and The Lullaby thrive on intimate performances.

“Anyone looking for something authentic and transparent, and people who enjoy a chilled acoustic sound, would enjoy our show,” says Peens.

It is, therefore, no surprise that a 500-seater quiet theatre is the act’s favourite type of gig.

“It makes our connection with the audience so real and tangible,” smiles Hubsch.

The duo has just finished tracking their debut album in New York with producer Kieran Kelly (Angus and Julia Stone, and Sufjan Stevens), and the plan is for an early 2013 release.

“New York was an amazing place, which was full of dreamers and hopefuls,” says Peens.

“It is a very inspiring city that is full of energy and good bagel places.

“We loved the attitude towards life and music there.”

So what can Digby and The Lullaby novices expect from this duo?

“We focus a lot on the meaning of love and relationships lyrically,” he elaborates.

“Musically, we tried to keep it stripped down and not let the arrangements get in the way of the lyrics and melodies.”

Tonight’s show takes place at St Clements (191 Musgrave Road) from 8 pm.
