Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
There’s something fascinatingly powerful about Tabi Gazele and her music. Whether it’s her pop and soul musical styling, her hypnotic stage presence or her raspy yet flawless vocals, one thing for certain is that Tabi is an artist who is hard to ignore.
Hailing from a musical family, Nigerian-Australian singer and songwriter Tabi was destined to use music to affect people in a profound way. A graduate of the Australian Institute of Music, Tabi made a name for herself as an in demand session musician and backing vocalist, touring extensively with ARIA award winning pop star Jessica Mauboy before taking the leap to establishing herself as an artist. Perfecting her performance skills and striking stage presence, all the while keeping pen to paper writing pop influenced catchy melodies, Tabi couples the fierce energy of soulful singers such as Tina Turner and Whitney Houston with the pop sensibility of Emeli Sande to create a vibrant musical experience.
In 2017, Tabi featured on 2 tracks, “Soul Glo” and “Devil On My Shoulder” from multi-platinum Australian hip-hop group Bliss n Eso’s 6th Studio Album ‘Off The Grid”. Spending the past two years working on her original music in both London — and Sydney — where she created and released the EP “Remembering Brenda” a tribute to late great South African singer, Brenda Fassie with her brother, Timomatic which premiered on Spindle Magazine – 2018 is set to be a big year kicking off with Tabi being selected as a featured performer on BBC One’s brand new talent show, ‘All Together Now’.
Flamboyant, fun and unapologetically soulful, Tabi Gazele is an artist whose music perfectly balances the raw honesty of soul music with contemporary pop plus a sprinkle of Afro. With a magnetic presence and a passion to move people through music, Tabi is here and ready to pounce on the music industry with power and grace, as only she can
Mairead is a modern country singer who was born and raised in Country Tyrone, Northern Ireland where Irish folk and Country music was always a huge part of her culture and family life. She has a love for Irish / American Folk and Country music and takes inspiration from artists such as Christy Moore, Cara Dillion, Alison Krauss, Leanne Rimes, Miranda Lambert and Randy Travis. Her Irish folk twist on modern country music is what sets her apart from other artists in the current market. Mairead is currently working hard developing her music in the studio, recording and writing with other artists and is excited to share her music with the ever growing Irish and British Country Music scene in 2018.
Hailing for Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, Amy Montgomery is a young singer/songwriter with the most mesmerising vocal sound which channels the spirit of Janis Joplin and Grace Slick. Amy is nothing if not diverse in her musical approach and her bohemian style effuses all the classic hallmarks of the late 60’s beatnik culture. Her songwriting turns emotions like sadness, grief, anger, abandonment into expression and creativity and highlights how vulnerability can actually be a gateway to growth.
Her self-made recordings with local producer and musician Michael Mormecha, fuse styles ranging from eastern tinged alt-rock, poignant story telling though to energetic soul and blues. Safe is not a word in her vocabulary. Amy’s unique voice has been carved from relentless busking throughout Ireland and her new single Dangerous will be released worldwide via 7Hz Recordings/ADA on March 2nd 2018. The release will be accompanied by the “b” side Terminal Velocity which showcases a daring approach to electronica via its cinematic and atmospheric sound scape.
Cassie Holt is a lifetime singer/songwriter from Dallas,
Texas with a voice of gold. With influences such as Etta James,
Billie Holiday, Aretha Franklin, and Erykah Badu, her style is definitely unique and infused with soul. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover cause you will definitely miss this jewel. CBS local named her “One of the Top Five Female Vocalists in North Texas”.
Cassie has gigged monthly at an array of venues and events, for more than half of her life.
She has graced most of the legendary venues that the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex has to offer: The Granada, Texas Theater, The Kessler Theater, Fair Park, and many more. Her and The Lost Souls did a month long residency at House of Blues Dallas, even opening for Grammy winning Fantastic Negrito. As a solo act, she completed a residency with Downtown Dallas, Inc. She has played numerous private parties and events, including the 50th birthday party of the world famous body building, Ronnie Coleman (Coleman Classic), and was picked for P Diddy/Revolt TV’s “Local Love Tour” when it came to Dallas. She has sung both “The National Anthem” and “God Bless America” at Texas Ranger games.
Cassie’s raw conviction and open soul allows her to capture moments and place them all in her music. Her
background and struggles propel her drive and resonate
within every note she sings.
Having a library of multi-genre music under her belt infused with a gritty soulfulness, she is a force to be reckoned with. She has collaborated with Grammy award winning producers S1, Ty Macklin, and Madukwu Chinwah, as well as Billboard/Dove winning producer, J.Rhodes. Working side by side with these heavy hitters, Cassie has been able to create art and give her all to each canvas of music. With her recent move to Los Angeles, she has teamed up with writer/producer Will Henshall to continue building and expanding her body of work. She has already hit the ground running within her new songwriting community, and has no plans to slow down. Miss Holt has a relentless work ethic and knows what she wants. Her laser point-like pursuance is guiding her into the hearts of many of her new collaborators and fans. She hopes to continue to build more relationships just like these, and expand her journey worldwide.
