Cate Le Bon is an artist hailing from Carmarthenshire, rural West Wales. Cate Le Bon’s solo work has always resistedpigeonholing, walking the tightrope between krautrock aloofness and heartbreaking tenderness; deadpan served with a twinkle in the eye, a flick of the fringe and a lick of the Telecaster. Created on a second-hand Meers piano on a mountainside in Cumbria, her fifth studio album “Reward” (Mexican Summer, 2019) is an album every bit as stylistically varied, surrealistically-inclined and tactile as those in the enduring outsider’s back catalogue, but one that is also intensely introspective and profound; her most personal to date. After having played Danish concerts at Jazzhouse and Roskilde Festival, Cate Le Bon is finally returning to Copenhagen this Autumn.
“On her fifth album, the Welsh musician is at her best. The more elaborate and eccentric her music becomes, the more she sounds like herself.” – Pitchfork
“Lovely, airy, occasionally rocking songs are underpinned by elliptical lyrics and seeping loneliness on Le Bon’s remarkable album” – The Guardian
