Abi Wade

Abi Wade is a musical collaboration between limbs, strings and vocal chords. The cello is the backbone to her songs but she approaches her instrument in a unique way; using it as a percussive instrument by hitting it with sticks and beaters while plucking and bowing it, often simultaneously. Whilst playing the cello in this unconventional manner, she also uses her feet to add drum beats and samples. The only thing that stops her being the ultimate one woman band is the expansion to a two piece when playing live with a keyboard and drum pads added to the mix.
