Join us for an evening of elegant style, the lyrical poise and minimalist sound of Douglas Dare. The English songsmith released his third album, Milkteeth, back in February this year, his most stripped back album to date – an album which sees Douglas become confident and comfortable enough with his own identity to reflect on both the joys and pains of youth.
Douglas Dare grew up on a farm as the youngest member of a large extended family, where he was often found in his own private world, dancing in his mother’s pink ballet dress. ‘Only now do I feel free to express my inner child again, and am giving myself permission to play dress up. I never felt like I fit in. I was different, odd. I wanted to dance and sing and dress up and on a small farm in rural Dorset that really stuck out.’
Dare’s music speaks of his own experiences of universal themes like love, loss, and childhood. Perhaps most importantly, his music gives a voice and a sanctuary to anyone who’s ever felt unusual or out of place. Whether he’s singing of the pain of those in the Magdalene Laundries as on Whelm, describing coming out to his parents on Aforger, or processing his own childhood isolation on Milkteeth, Dare has a graceful honesty and an abiding clarity of vision in his simple and distinctive sound.
