NEWS: Tim Wheeler And Emmy The Great Announce Bush Hall Show!

Emmy The Great and Tim Wheeler have confirmed a special, one off show to celebrate the release of their album – THIS IS CHRISTMAS.

The pair will play a festive show at Bush Hall on December 14th.
Tickets are on sale from Friday and available now.

“THIS IS CHRISTMAS” – the album – is released on Infectious Music on November 21st and features 9 songs by Tim and Emmy and one Phil Spector cover. The album was recorded over the course of the year, with the duo first hitting on the idea of an Xmas record when they were holed up during last winter’s snowstorms.

“I’m a sucker for all kinds of Christmas songs from carols to Nat King Cole to 70’s glam rock classics and 80’s guilty pleasures” admits Tim “and it felt like a good time to contribute something new to the genre.”

Full of the sort of pop gems Tim Wheeler has made a career out of and aided by Emmy’s lyrical prowess, This Is Christmas is a much-needed departure from the usual sentimental warblings that clutter up the charts this time of year. The album features Matt Tong from Bloc Party on drums, Euan Hinshelwood (Young Husband) on guitar, a string section orchestrated by esteemed film composer Ilan Eskeri, with Tim and Emmy playing everything else.
