What makes a singer great? How much is talent and how much skill? Tracey Thorn, musician and author of the bestselling memoir Bedsit Disco Queen, recalling her life in indie pop duo Everything But The Girl, returns with Naked at the Albert Hall: The Inside Story of Singing. The possessor of one of the most distinctive voices in music, she draws on her own experiences and those of fellow singers to consider the art of singing, from opera to Auto Tune.

Former Haçienda DJ Dave Haslam’s new book, Life After Dark: A History of British Nightclubs & Music Venues, explores how these places can come to define a town or a generation. At this event, Tracey and Dave will share and discuss their favourite songs, chosen to illuminate material from their books and key moments in their lives. The evening will include a Q&A and book signing.
