Josh McGovern 'Weight Release Party' + The Hungry Mothers + Bess Atwell + Arabella Emmeleine

Come and celebrate the release of Josh McGovern's new single 'Weight' at The Hope And Ruin on September 12th.

We are blessed to have some of Brighton's best folk bands on the bill!


Josh McGovern
Josh McGovern’s song writing is an arresting blend of poetic lyricism and powerful musicality, daydreaming Americana and haunting folk sensibilities. The results are beautifully enticing songs of eerie intimacy as found in his three highly acclaimed singles ‘The Devil Below Me’, ‘Love Left Lost’ and 'Weight'.

The Hungry Mothers
Feel good Americana that resides within the south east of the UK. A four piece compromising of warming harmonies, laid back roots and country blues.

Bess Atwell
Singer-songwriter Bess Atwell’s debut album saw her garner the attention of major radio stations with airplay spanning BBC Radio 1,2 and 6, as well as live sessions with Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley. Atwell spent most of the years surrounding her debut gigging in London, including several sold out headline shows, and festivals such as The Great Escape and Green Man.

Arabella Emmeleine
Arabella Emmeleine combines rhythmic vocals with observational undertones, causing anyone in earshot to follow her every word. Her powerful yet almost vulnerable guitar playing completes every song effortlessly. Charismatic, charming and a true realist.
