Following her sold out show at The Bodega in February and the NME Radar tour with Group Love and Big Deal, Anna Calvi has been going from strength to strength. After being voted in BBC's Sound of 2011 poll and featuring on Jools Holland's ‘Later’ programme, she released her critically acclaimed album 'Blackout'. The album is now nominated for the Mercury Music Prize alongside heavyweights Elbow, PJ Harvey and Elbow.

Drawing notable plaudits from Nick Cave and Brian Eno, the ‘biggest thing since Patti Smith’ has spent the summer playing Europe’s biggest festivals (among them Glastonbury, Roskilde, Reading/Leeds, Latitude and Field Day) as part of a huge tour including; whilst also taking her dark, brooding pop music over to support Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons on huge dates.
