Immerse yourself in the swirling landscapes and enchanting melodies of MJ Guider

Melissa Guion will be at Roadburn performing as part of the Thou Artist In Residence extravaganza, which we are already breathlessly anticipating. However, we’re thrilled to announce that she will also be performing her own set – aided and abetted by live collaborators – under the moniker, MJ Guider.

If you’re unfamiliar with the hypnotic fayre of her 2016 release, Precious Systems, then the good news is that there’s just about 11 weeks before Roadburn to get yourself up to speed. Immerse yourself in the swirling landscapes and enchanting melodies on offer; lay back in the stream of lush instrumentation and let it wash over you. MJ Guider’s output is a multilayered offering, and yet remains delicately sparse at times.

Of her Roadburn performance, Melissa comments:

“Being invited to Tilburg to play Roadburn is an amazing honor. After a great first tour at the end of 2018 supporting dear friends / brilliant freaks / Roadburn 2019 artist-in-residence Thou, it’s incredible to have the opportunity to bring this music across the ocean with live collaborators Emily McWilliams and Mike Wilkinson – two extraordinary musicians whose work I’ve long admired. What a dream to be a part of this sonically diverse and progressive festival alongside so many excellent artists in this year’s line-up. It’s going to be magical…”

MJ Guider will perform on Sunday, 14 April at Roadburn Festival.
