No Quarter @ Notting Hill Arts Club
21 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3JQ London
When you look like the artistic twin of an Emile Bernard painting, chances are there's a paint stroke of something special.
Frontman Paolo Fornasari is the latest indie poet to capture your imagination on stage.
Dressed like a suave scally from a Dickens novel and taking the post impressionist artist of Emile as his stage name, this modern vintage mash up makes for a unique sound.
With stripped down romance and quality like Villagers, and a raw voice joining ranks with the likes of Woodkid, Emile Bernard offers quirky poetry with tints of dark electronica (Charlie Matthews-Spindle Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazar)
Better known as a French Post-Impressionist painter who had artistic friendships with Van Gogh, Gauguin and Cézanne, Emile has recently reappeared on the London scene as an indie singer/songwriter and he is now working on his solo debut EP Bye-Bye Baby Blue
His upcoming self-released single 'The Way' has been played on XFM X-posure by John Kennedy, BBC London on the Gary Crowley show and on Amazing Radio by Ruth Barnes and Bella Union's Simon Raymonde.
The song 'Friends In Time' has been featured in Tom Robinson's BBC Introducing Mixtape
