Wilderthorn : IMMERSE

Wilderthorn : IMMERSE

Elanor Bilbrough

Come ‘soak in the sound’ at IMMERSE, a meditative, candle-lit experience of atmospheric textures and etherial sounds, led by the emotive voice of singer-composer, Wilderthorn.

Wilderthorn (AKA Jon Bilbrough) is known for Secret Gigs in disused and abandoned spaces, turning forgotten places of history and atmosphere into wild and magical ‘Wilderthorn-experiences’. His performances sway between song and improvised territory, driven by Jon’s unique and powerful, emotive voice, tinged with dark operatic tones and folk-style flourishes.

He will be joined by his brother drummer / producer and sound therapist Sekrit.

As a singer Jon has worked with award winning composer, Nitin Sawhney, members of the platinum selling rock-band, Athlete, The London Bulgarian Choir and renowned conceptual – electronic producer, Max Cooper.

Along his travels he has shared the stage with the likes of St Vincent, Ben Howard, Foy Vance and This Is The Kit.

His current work, IMMERSE ventures deep into meditative space. Building textures and sounds drawn from nature with soaring layers of wordless vocals recorded in the depths of both cave and forest.

Jon is also a visual artist and film-maker, graduating with a 1st Class Hons at The University Of Arts London.
