Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
“Hailing from SW London Sharlette is a talented singer/songwriter bringing her contemporary soulful pop sounds to the masses. Currently recording her EP which is due for release soon, Sharlette can be found performing at various venues in and around London including Roof Gardens, Ronnie Scott’s (upstairs) and further afield having performed at Amsterdam Coffee Festival just last year! With her influences ranging from Etta James to George Michael she delivers with a stunning bluesy powerhouse vocal, coupled with hypnotic soulful rock sounds on the guitar, that also just graces you with elements of jazz funk.
Having begun her career only several months ago and already headlined her own sell out shows (Ice Bar, August 2014 and Freedom,October 2014, Sanctum Hotel, Cinema Room August 2015) among other accomplishments, big things can be expected from this artist who aims to reach out and touch audiences with her heartfelt, selfpenned tracks”
Country/Rock singer songwriter Emily Faye is young, passionate and determined for the world to hear her music. Her first single is due for release in March and Album late 2016.
“I’m a 16 year old singer songwriter born and bred in London playing original music on my acoustic guitar. Ever since my dad played me Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton when I was 11, I was inspired to teach myself guitar and write my own music, creating a career around my love for stripped back music.”
“Artist To Watch 2014” ~ No Depression While it’s not every day that a songwriter makes it from the shadows of open mic nights to the high wattage, real deal scene, Joe Nolan’s old soul lyrics and striking vocals suggest that the odds of breaking through are in his favour.
Joe Nolan’s distinctive and intimate vocals stack the deck. From theramin tremors to raw howls, his range of expression reaches extremes. He delivers bandaged fragility and raw rage with equal impact. The songs are fervent, pressing and intense, attuned at once to the world of youthful melodramas in which Joe, an artist in his early 20s lives, and an older, deeper level of human experience. Insight into the latter has nothing to do with age.
The strength of his debut record, Goodbye Cinderella (2011), earned a nomination for Canadian Folk Music Award Emerging Artist of the Year, a record deal, and a chance to record in Nashville with some of the most respected names in the business, included Colin Linden, Marco Giovino (Robert Plant, Norah Jones) and John Whynot (Lucinda Williams, Blue Rodeo). Even in the spotlight, the lyrical contours of Joe Nolan’s confessions retain their mystery. Tornado, a collection of songs that befit a rising star in the songwriting world.
“A remarkable collection of slowburning melancholia.” ~ Exclaim
“The Edmonton singersongwriter will try to sweep you off your feet with his woozy ditties, groggy vocals and lyrics about the rush of lust, the vagaries of love, and late-night/early-morning drives.” ~ Edmonton Journal
“Viewing the world from a battered heart and through beautifully bloodshot, halfmast eyes.” ~ Calgary Herald
“This is one twister you won’t mind getting caught up in.” ~ New Canadian Music
“Nolan is raw talent through and through.” ~ No Depression
“You’ve been looking for just this: a warmth against January’s sting, a voice for every kind of heartache, a reason to be excited about local music. Joe Nolan is your man.” ~ The Gateway
“Nolan’s thing is taking off, and it is strong.” ~ Globe & Mail
Evering is an acoustic duo formed by Scottish singer-songwriters Chris Yendell and Dawn Coulshed with the common goal of creating an original sound within an indie / folk genre.

After releasing their debut EP titled Running Circles, playing The Great Escape and some other UK festivals last year, Evering have already received coverage from BBC Introducing and XFM in what looks to be a promising year for the band. “Great track with a bursting talent & energy” Dave Rowntree (XFM) “Folk at its best” Fortitude Magazine
