Tracing Arcs (Hip Hop Tracks)


Home: Ramsgate / Liverpool, Kent / Merseyside UK   

When you hear the lush, seductive vocals of Fran Kapelle of Trading Arcs, an edgy film noir starts rolling in your head. Classy Trip Hop beats, elaborate Jazz chords and deep upright basses sketch out the subtle exotica of a femme fatale. This British band is backed by the musical mastery of base player Terry Pack, who’s worked with The Enid, Johnny Marr, and other iconic UK and European Jazz artists. Highly regarded since the 90s, the Arcs appeared on the “best of” for Future Music magazine, and scored for art installations, The Loop Dance Co. and theatres in London and Milan.


Since the mid 90s, the Tracing Arcs have admirably mixed styles and genres with great success, including Miles' electric period, the fragility of David Sylvian, the adventures of Eno, Hassel and Brook, and the Jazz/Dub of John Martyn. The Arcs have headlined at numerous festivals like The Powerhaus, Create Festival, and have played support to bands like Olive and The Cranes. They’ve written music for theatre and contemporary dance at The Riverside Theatre and other theatres in London, SE England and Milan.

Vocalist and lyricist Fran Kapelle has worked as a session and backing singer with artists like Brian Kennedy, Ian Shaw, An Emotional Fish, Eddie Reader, Mary Coughlan, and Carol Grimes, and for the film “The Commitments.” Guest musician Terry Pack was previously a bass player with The Enid, and has done session work with many great Jazz artists.
