Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
In late 2015 after 3 albums, 1000’s of gigs and festival appearances with ‘The Ben Eaton Trio’ Ben relocated from Australia to London. In late 2016 he started tracking for his new project in Lyre Studios in London. Taking a different approach of using a stripped back ‘Live’ attitude, keeping instrumentation and overdubs minimal, and using his recent move to the UK as inspiration, the fresh tracks open a new chapter in his solo career. The 5 track release which resulted titled “Mountaintop’ is brimming with the fire and virtuosic guitar flair which has become his trademark. Tackling such diverse topics as politics, religion, sex, death and hope ‘Mountaintop’ is scheduled for release at the end of the year
Zurich are a 3-piece Alternative Rock Band from Oxford, UK. They play widescreen post-punk with a nod to the darker side of 80’s electronic pop. Having earned an impressive live reputation through national tours and festival slots around the UK, the band comprise of Adrian Banks (Bass & Vocals), Chris Gillett (Guitar & Vocals) and Leigh Taylor (Drums & Samples).
Zurich released their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Small Wars’ in late 2015, receiving extensive support from BBC6, as well as from radio stations all over the world, and are currently working on their highly anticipated follow-up due in early 2018. The band is also set to release their next single “Where You’ve Been”, while embarking on their first tour of Asia.
Georgie Keller, the homegrown UK talent behind infectious track ‘BUZZ’, is between Germany and London at the moment. He’s constantly on the go: seeking experiences, places to be, people to meet. His kinetic, good time, positivity-laced music bubbles out of him, propelled by a desire to push himself to be the best he can be. “My music is fresh, it’s Pop but very current, influenced by Hip Hop and Rap. BUZZ is about being in that situation where you have a strong connection with another person and being able to hear the unintentional excitement in their voice whenever they speak. And therefore finding yourself in a dream like state reeling off all these things you could do for them, all the places you could go together and telling them straight up that you’ve figured them out and that they don’t need to hide it anymore. It’s a feel good track that i think most people out there can relate to.
Alberto Ballico is an Italian ex-professional footballer turned singer/song writer and pianist.
He discovered his music talent at the tender age of 10, when he started playing the French Horn in his local brass band. It was also during this time that he started his rudimentary studies in music theory. At age 19 Alberto’s generous parents bought him a very fine black upright piano, on which he began to explore song writing. A couple of years later in February 1998, full of determination and self-belief, Alberto decided to emigrate to London to further familiarise himself with the English Language and broaden his horizons.
In London he continued his music studies and improved his musicianship skills by taking further music courses, including studying for a BA in Music at Goldsmith University. He played and sang in different college\cover bands but only in the last year (2017) he has been focusing exclusively in his solo career as a musician .
Alberto is a very open-minded, positive and enthusiastic individual, who is eager to share his energy and thoughts through music with the current generation.
The Tomicks are a new rock n’ roll band inspired to recapture the magic of pop music from the ’60s and ’70s. Our first EP is out now.
