This weekend, from 27th to 29th of May Liverpool will host its annual music festival and international music & digital business conference Liverpool Sound City where Latvia will be represented by the perspective avant-pop band Howling Owl.
Howling Owl is a Latvian-Serbian duo that consists of Latvian singer and keyboardist Evija Vebere and Serbian drummer and keyboardist Lav Kovac. The band will perform twice at the Liverpool Sound City and on Saturday they’ll have a headline show at the legendary The Cavern Club where The Beatles started their career. Although Howling Owl was formed just a year ago, it already has established itself as one of the most unique and promising new acts in Europe that proved it once again last weekend during The Great Escape festival in Brighton.
Latvia was also represented there by the EBBA Award winners Carnival Youth, singer-songwriter Alise Joste and Music Export Latvia. The latter was nominated as the Best Export Office in the Yearly Music Convention Awards for the second time in three years. YMCAs also honored Carnival Youth manager and the CEO of music management company Every Little Thing Guna Zucika by naming her one of the candidates for the Convention Junkie award.
