Top UK talent heading to Hull as part of Get It Loud In Libraries

One of the UK’s brightest emerging musicians is performing at Hull Central Library next month as part of Get It Loud In Libraries.

L Devine recently released her brand-new EP, Near Life Experience: Part 1, following on from her acclaimed debut EP Growing Pains (2017) and Peer Pressure (2018).

She will perform at Hull Central Library at 2.30pm on Sunday 17 October. Tickets cost £8.80 (includes booking fee).

Get It Loud In Libraries is a unique award-winning project designed to give people the chance to see top artists in their local library. Since 2005, it has delivered high quality gigs in libraries in towns and cities all over the UK, featuring breakthrough and established music acts such as Adele, Jessie J, Plan B, Cate Le Bon, Clean Bandit, Juliette Lewis and Meilyr Jones.

Councillor Marjorie Brabazon, chair of Hull Culture and Leisure, said: “Get It Loud In Libraries is a fantastic initiative that brings some of the best talent from around the UK, and the world, to different and intimate places across the country. L Devine is the latest in a number of amazing artists to visit Hull Central Library – and hopefully there will be many more.”

Having explored the experiences of her generation with songs that focus on LGBTQ+ life, female sex positivity and the impact of social media, Near Life Experience: Part 1 is overall introspective. L Devine examines issues of self-evaluation, personal mental health, and her identity in relationships. While she has learned a lot, a key discovery is accepting that life is a continuing process of working those things out.

Near Life Experience: Part 1 contains her latest single Priorities and previous single Girls Like Sex, along with three new songs – Off The Grid, Be In Her Bedroom, Wish That You Saw Me – and previously released tracks Don’t Say It and Naked Alone.

This gig was initially due to take place on Sunday 15 November 2020, bit was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
