‘THE UNUSUAL HISTORY OF ETHER’ WITH REBECCA COLLINS

TONIGHT! Saturday April 20th 2013 – Garter Lane Waterford 8pm – as part of Waterford Festival of Architecture

The Unusual History of Ether is the songwriting partnership of Waterford-born singer-songwriter Rebecca Collins and Danish guitarist Mikkel Ploug. The two met several years ago when they played together at the Dublin Fringe Festival and immediately forged a musical connection. However, busy touring in Europe and the UK with their solo projects, it wasn’t until 2011 that they found the time to collaborate. After a few months of swapping musical ideas online, The Unusual History of Ether was formed and Rebecca relocated to Copenhagen.

Adding to the wide range of influences Rebecca and Mikkel bring to their writing style, bassist Jeppe Skovbakke and drummer Jeppe Gram completed the band’s line-up during the recording of their first EP, Part One. Released in early 2012, Part One explores the philosophical aspects of human life and the natural world with a style that manages to be both cinematic and pop. Part One was hailed as a ‘breathtaking’ and ‘heartbreakingly beautiful’ debut by the Danish press. After several months of extensive live performance, The Unusual History of Ether returned to the studio to record their debut album A Distant Age which is due out in Spring 2013. They toured Ireland, the UK and Denmark in support of the first single from the record in October and November 2012, and were featured on RTE Television, The Works and Lyric FM, The Blue of The Night.

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
