Laetitia Sadier sometimes known as Seaya Sadier is a French musician best known as the singer of the band Stereolab. Sadier was working as a nanny when she met McCarthy guitarist Tim Gane at a gig in Paris during the late 1980s. Sadier was disillusioned with the rock scene in France, and soon moved to London to be with Gane and to pursue her career. She contributed vocals to McCarthy’s final albums and when McCarthy broke up in 1990 and she and Gane immediately formed the hugely influential Stereolab. In 2010 she released a solo album called The Trip. In 2012 she released her second solo album entitled Silencio and this was followed up by “Something Shines” which came out on Drag City in 2014 and critically acclaimed Finding Me Finding you in 2017.
Laetitia Sadier and her Source Ensemble (Emma, Nina and Xavier) are heading back out on the road to promote their Drag City released album ‘Finding Me Finding You.’
Support: Marker Starling
After recording and performing for many years under the name of Mantler, Toronto’s Chris A. Cummings changed his band name to Marker Starling in 2012. A solo performer for much of his career, Cummings was frequently seen playing Melancholy Party Jams on a Wurltizer electric piano, with drum machine accompaniment.
Cummings has collaborated with the German band Von Spar, contributing vocals and lyrics to four songs on their album STREET LIFE. His song “Deep Background” was recorded by Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadier and appears on her most recent solo record FIND ME FINDING YOU.
