Exciting news for Morcheeba fans. Former lead singer Skye Edwards is reuniting with the band after a 7 year hiatus! She’ll make her return to the band on stage at Switzerland’s Caprices festival on April 9. Afterwards, the band will hit the studio for a new album which is due out later this summer!
I saw Skye perform a solo show at Joe’s Pub in New York City in 2007 and it was really incredible. While Morcheeba sells out huge venues all over the world, the show at Joe’s Pub was only about 3/4 full. When Skye asked the crowd to sing along to some of Morcheeba’s biggest songs, there was a stunning silence that fell across the crowd. It must have been a really humbling experience. I was having a Kathy Bates in Misery moment where I had to control myself from looking out at the audience and saying “HAVE YOU ALL GOT AMNESIA?!?!” But Skye played it off and the show was excellent. I met her backstage after the show and she signed 5 cd covers for me and was super-duper nice. I’m looking forward to their return.
