LONEY DEAR hits all the right buttons with his beautifully crafted songs about love and depair and everyday anxiety. A one man band with nine members, Loney, Dear is the alter ego of multi-instrumentalist and DIY expert Emil Svanngen. The beautiful acoustics of St Giles will provide the perfect environment for Emil’s unique voice and personal style of delivery.
