Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
MAN AND MAKER
Formed in 2017, Man and Maker is a project created by the Welsh singer songwriter, Will Gray. Now based in London, the project is founded on a single, simple idea. To document and follow a man who loves making music. Man and Maker has made a name for himself in the local south west London open mic scene and will be gigging further a field in 2018. Will releases powerful, melodic, and narrative driven music once a month under the guise of Man and Maker with the hope of releasing multiple EP’s in the new year.
Rebecca Riedtmann writes and plays captivating Americana with soulful blues undertones. She has guested and played live on radio shows, performed on BBC 1, written in collaboration with a wealth of successful artists, and played venues across the country and internationally.
Hailing from the unsung Northern City of Bradford, Singersongwriter Andy Ruddy is the product of a rich, unearthed music scene in his hometown. His debut album ‘Everything Is In Order’ reached a high of number 6 in the Itunes Singer-Songwriter Album charts and has been described as ‘a spectacular montage of contemporary indie folk and a chronological coming of age album’ (Virtuoso Sounds). Andy’s second album is recorded and due for release in 2018.
ANTON & THE COLTS
Frontman of Anton & The Colts and solo artist, Anton has brought his music from Glasgow to Dallas, Paris, Switzerland to London and back again. Living proof that success does not necessarily mean compromise, Anton has taken the music he loves – blues, country, folk, rock n roll – and shaped them into a potent, fresh, yet reassuringly familiar brew.
Blessed with a smoky, whiskey-soaked voice redolent of the great soul singers of Stax & Muscle Shoals, and armed with just an acoustic guitar & harmonica, Anton adds incisive lyrics to sweet melodies to create something that can reduce a rowdy bar to awed silence or rouse the most sedate venue to fever pitch.
Anton joined forces with The Colts in early 2014. Since then, they have played hundreds of gigs all over the country, hitting the UK festival circuit (Celtic Connections, the Merchant City Festival, Eden, Belladrum), playing sold out shows at Glasgow’s King Tut’s, Stereo & Nice & Sleazy’s and recording their first EP (6:45 & 450 Down).
Recent support slots with John Wheeler (Hayseed Dixie) & Ben Ottewell (Gomez) are, Anton hopes, just the start of bigger and better things. He is currently demoing songs for the debut Anton & The Colts album which is slated for release early ’18.
