MORCHEEBA [UK]

The British band was founded by Godfrey brothers – Ross (guitar) and Paul (electronics) – and singer Skye Edwards in 1995. They took the global music scene by storm with the successful debut album Who Can You Trust? (1996) and followed up with the albums Big Calm (1998) and Fragments of Freedom (2000). Three years later, Skye Edwards embarked on a solo career, and Daisy Martey replaced her as the lead singer. In this line-up, the band recorded The Antidote (2005). Shortly after, however, Martey left the band as well, and Morcheeba recorded the following album Dive Deep (2008) with guest vocalists from various genres (rock, pop, blues, rap). In 2010, the founding trio regrouped, with Skye Edwards returning to the band. Morcheeba’s latest effort is Blaze Away, released in June 2018. It is again the work of a duo – this time, it was Paul Godfrey who left the band. Morcheeba has sold more than 10 million CDs and has performed on main stages all over the world.

Morcheeba returns to the Czech Republic after 6 long years, and their Metronome Festival set is going to include songs from the new album, as well as time-tested fan favourites.
