Nightjjar is the work of Reading-based songwriter, Aden Pearce.

Originally toiling in rock bands around the Thames Valley at the turn of the century, Aden came to the attention of Interscope records through a Kerrang! magazine demo competition – the snag being that he was shortlisted for a live set and had no band, having produced the songs on his own. However emboldened by the experience, he relocated to Reading, playing shows for the next decade under his own name and quietly earning a strong reputation as an acoustic performer.

Inspired by Radiohead and John Grant, Aden fused a new sound somewhere between organic folk and electronica and returns to AYL? this year.

"Eclectic flavoured indie-folk fusion with a large dollop of clever innovation"
