Juanita Stein confirms a special, full band, live show from Brighton’s Electric streaming on demand for 24 hours starting on Sunday, Nov. 1 via Dice.
The show follows on the heels of Juanita’s third solo album, Snapshot, released recently via Handwritten Records.
Juanita recorded Snapshot after the death of her father.
About Snapshot (Produced by Ben Hillier): “It feels fundamental to understanding the devastation and eerie silence thrust upon us after his sudden death,” said Juanita, discussing the moment of great sadness that inspired her new record. “It was a daunting task to sum up the life of one man such as my father. He was endlessly inspiring, charming, deeply talented and passionately spiritual. He admirably, and at times frustratingly, carried the torch for his own musical career until the very end.”

Unlike her first two solo albums, America (2017) and Until The Lights Fade (2018), which were made in just a few weeks in the United States, Snapshot was recorded over the course of eight months at Agricultural Audio, not far from Juanita’s home. She said about the process: “This allowed me the time and distance I so craved. Ben was deeply concerned with allowing the songs to breathe and to take the right shape. We laid down all the defining guitar parts and vocals which were then beds for the band to come in and lay their parts on.”
Catch Juanita in concert live at Brighton Electric on Nov. 1. Tickets for the show, available globally, are £8 (approximately $10.30 USD), with £1 from every ticket sold going to the #WeMakeEvents campaign in support of the live music industry.
Of the show, Juanita said, “Having played a series of home sessions during the peak of lockdown, I experienced a surprisingly rewarding connection with the audience. It felt like we were all in something together, working it out. I figured an elevated version of this to celebrate the release of my album Snapshot would be the way to go. I feel compelled to really honor the full sound of the record and give people something special during this exceptionally bizarre and challenging time. I’ll be playing with a full band and we’ll be filming the performance at our local studio, Brighton Electric, where we’d usually be rehearsing for a string of shows right about now.”
