Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
Ciara Vizzard is a singer songwriter with a pop/melodic soul twist. With Irish and American roots, her music tells a story of human interaction, which touches on the nuances of relationships and the emotions that drive us.
Writing songs since a young age, Ciara has only really developed her songwriting and singing since her late teens. Currently active on the live music scene, she is also working on the release of her EP ‘Fearless’.
Zach Johnson is an Indie/Folk singer-songwriter. Over the past year he has been performing all around the South East, appearing at Trinity Folk Festival, Bracknell Festival and The Big Feastival, among many others. He released his debut EP, The Last Days of June, in late 2016.
Sorrel Nation is a singer/songwriter from the UK who has been writing and performing since the age of 13, and at 15 recorded and released her first EP.
Sorrel made a name for herself performing at live music venues across London, but recently moved to Australia where she released her latest EP ‘Kids On The Run’. Sorrel’s passion for music shows in her heartfelt performances and powerful songs, and according to Ditto Music is “someone you need to put on your radar”
She has been working with acclaimed British producer Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse, Paloma Faith, Guy Sebastian) and have created what they believe to be Sorrel’s best work so far.
“When she opens up with her angst-ridden upper register… the result is stunning.”

Enchanting voyage through an imagery of dreamy indie folk – Calling Blue Jay is the musical alias of London-based singer songwriter Marieke De Keukelaere. Combining mesmerising vocals with reflective lyrics, her aim is to expose complexities and move the soul.
From singing stories in the car as a child to travelling on her own through Asia, being on the way had always been a great source of inspiration. Out of these travel diaries and a short encounter with the arts, Calling Blue Jay was born. Armed with scraps of paper she felt the need to capture whatever floated her way.
In 2011 she left her hometown in Belgium and crossed the sea to London where she recorded her first mini EP ‘SunStroke’ and, later on, joined baroque-pop ensemble Edwardia as a singer-lyricist. Whilst gigging around the London acoustic circuit, she kept on developing her own sound, leading to her debut album ‘Woods’, which she self-released in 2015.
Calling Blue Jay’s music can be described as atmospheric indie folk, a sound that is simultaneously delicate, powerful and bittersweet. Combining a fingerpicking guitar style with haunting vocal harmonies, her performances are known to be intimate and captivating.
Currently preparing for a second album and with new music videos coming up, 2017 is set to be an exciting year.
Paul Lynch is somebody who tries to listen to as great a range of songs and artists as possible to continue to create interesting and unique songs diverging from the normal formulas.
Every gig features a trumpet, voice, loop pedal and guitar. Paul Lynch’s songs use interesting lyrics and rhythms that you would not usually see in your every day gig!
