Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
Nathalie Miranda is a full-fledged, soul belter, power-house vocalist with a 5 octave range. Notable for her unique, soulful voice, and high energy performances, this artist is definitely one to keep an eye on.
The voice and energy is distinctly Nathalie Miranda – the UK’s answer to the US Uber Divas.
And it’s her voice, this incredibly soulful, deep voice that makes her so unique.
“I quite like the way that I can surprise people when I sing! They’re not expecting the voice that comes out of me, to come out of me at all! I’m quite a shy person off stage, and I just come alive as soon as I get behind the mic. That’s the only way I can explain it!”
Nathalie’s biggest musical influence is Freddie Mercury, both vocally and in terms of performance. She is also greatly influenced by Prince, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, Whitney, Chaka Khan, and George Michael to name but a few.
She released her new three track collection of singles, ‘Bulletproof’, in early May 2017, and though these songs are more Pop-oriented, her influences are clear through her emotional and heartfelt performances.
Nathalie is also front woman to her own function band, The Breakfast Club, and also works with different covers bands around England.
Nathalie’s latest 3 track release ‘Bulletproof’ is now available to download on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and available for streaming on Spotify.
Dee Ajayi is noticeably in her own world of infinite energy; her aura desirable.
Graced with a captivating voice and an addictive stage presence, Dee Ajayi finds a sincere joy in sharing her soul through performance. Live work has seen Dee Ajayi on London’s renowned stage, KOKO, The Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham and festival stages across the UK. Dee Ajayi’s alluringly soulful voice can just as easily float through new school Neo-Soul, Acoustic, House and Pop as it can and old school R&B, Jazz and Blues.
In 2012 electronic music duo, Bondax, released “Only You Know”. The track featured Dee’s angelic vocal and so began the journey. In 2015 Dee Ajayi wrote and featured on Space Jump Salute’s “Breathe”. “Breathe” was signed and released with Mike Mago’s label, through Spinnin’ Records – the worlds leading electronic dance label. The collaboration reached the top 50 in the Beatport dance charts. Most recent collaborations include “Like An Animal” with fiery French dance duo Loge21 – supported by Martin Solveig.
Today Dee Ajayi is writing for innovative Deep and Tropical House producers, Hip Hop artists and of course herself! Currently in the developing stages of her process, Dee is formulating an organic body of sound that best captures her bright aura and healing intentions; with soul, jazz, reggae, funk and folk influences – Eryka Badu, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Jamie Woon and Anderson .Paak. Recently being invited onto BBC WM and London’s Reprezent FM, Dee Ajayi is beginning to turn heads and entice the ears of listeners across the UK. She has a beautiful presence that is revealed on and off stage, attracting a loyal audience.
ANDREAS S JENSEN
Danish born, London-based singer-songwriter and musician Andreas S Jensen’s debut album ‘Disturbed’ consists of 10 well crafted timeless classics, and a high standard continues throughout the album.
He writes catchy, alternative pop songs mentioning inspirations from artists like: David Bowie, Tom Petty, Elliot Smith, Jeff Buckley, Johnny Cash, Lou Reed, Elvis Costello and The Zombies….
Andreas has also written, produced and remixed songs for artists like; Sam & The Womp, Armand Van Helden, Kevin Lyttle, Rizzle Kicks, King Blues and Vybz Kartel, and has sold close to a million copies of his music worldwide.
Honing the best of Scandie melodic approach with British indie sensibilities, DISTURBED is playfully genre-mixing and journeys through Singer-Songwriter Pop, over Country, Indie Rock, and Electronics to 70’ish ballads, and Brecht style cabaret story telling.
Andreas doesn’t seem too worried about being “cool” or “current”. All he seems to care about is expressing what he feels and being emotionally true to the music he writes, and all this somehow transcends into high quality radio friendly music.
Andreas’ three singles Take My Heart And Go, Trust Is My Anchor and Only Die Once, was all supported by BBC 6 Music while the latter ones was featured on over 1000 other stations, blogs and online magazines.

The charity song was acknowledged by media across the globe, Harry is continuing to compose and release music such as his new EP – ‘Times New Roman’ – a gradual release of 5 original songs.
