Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
Josh Taerk (pronounced TURK) recently released his new single “Learning To Let Go” online and to the Triple A Radio format in conjunction with his new EP Stages.
In 2016 Josh toured the U.S. where his latest single “Anywhere Love Took Us” was play-listed on Adult Top 40 radio. On tour, Josh and his band have opened for famed blues guitarist Robin Trower (Procol Harum), Kevin Costner & Modern West, Jon McLaughlin, and Austin Jones amongst others.
Josh was named one of the “Top 5 Live Acts” of 2015 by acclaimed music writer Jason Richie; and his last album Here’s To Change was chosen by Richie as one of the top 25 albums of the year. In May of 2015, the title track off HTC was play-listed on over 40 radio stations across the U.K.
Max Weinberg, drummer for Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, calls Josh “the most exciting new talent I have come across in years” and asked Josh to join him onstage at Summerfest 2011 to pay tribute to the late Clarence Clemons.
In April of 2011, Josh was chosen to play the Aspen Songwriters Festival hosted by John Oates (Hall & Oates). Oates recorded background vocals on 2 songs off Josh’s ‘Here’s To Change’ album and introduced Josh to producer Teddy Morgan (Guitar player & songwriter for Kevin Costner & Modern West).
Josh has also done 3 tours as key support throughout the U.K. (2012-2013), and 2 headlining U.K. university tours (2013 & 2015).
Dancing About Architecture – “What Josh seems expert at…is taking that bombastic nature out of the big rock machine, placing some grit and drive into pop and then lacing the two together via lyrical poeticism and deft dynamics.
Comic Pop Library – “The single has a light fresh feel to it…I really enjoy the message because sometimes some of us can’t let go of something and to move forward we need to, even though it might be difficult.”
Emily White will return to The Bedford for her first London full-band show on Thursday 11th of January.
The singer-songwriter, who has recently appeared on the London music scene after moving from the Midlands, draws influence from a wide range of styles and eras. Expect a unique blend which showcases an obvious love for jazz, soul and the quintessential songwriters of the 70s.
