Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
Anin Rose is a German Pop artist based in London.Writing from an early age, she has been influenced by true musicians like Sting, Joni Mitchell and John Legend, but has always been drawn to write catchy melodies, hooks and singalong choruses. Her newest release “Need You” is available on all major platforms and showcases her power vocals accompanied by a dynamical production mixing modern sounds and choir arrangements. When Anin is not writing, she is musical director of the London International Gospel Choir with whom she regularly sings for TV (BBC) or Radio (BBC 2). You can find her playing sets at various venues in London, from the intimate restaurant (Jazzgir) to full size music venues (93 Feet East) or writing choral arrangements for other original artists! For her new EP release she is currently sourcing support through Kickstarter, so new material is on the way!
Luna Lake’s music takes inspiration from the likes of Finley Quaye and Paolo Nutini. There are hints of psychedelia in the music, drawing from Tame Impala and Mac Demarco. It blends soothing chorus infused guitars with creatively flowing drums and soulful bass lines. The new record will introduce fresh sounds, such as the Fender Rhodes, warm synthesisers, tape delays and phasers.
Jessica Pruneau is a French Canadian country-folk singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Quebec, Canada, she has travelled around the world and is currently based out of London, UK. Her North American country roots and her international journeys have shaped her unique and fresh folk-traveller style. On stage, she has a natural and very personal way to introduce and perform her songs with sensitivity, sincerity and humour.
Her well-received debut EP ‘Love’s on Track’ was released in September 2016 and her first French radio single ‘Où tu veux’ debuted on French Canadian charts. She was on the Blind Auditions of The Voice (Quebec) in 2015 and has performed in Australia, England, France, Ireland, Spain, Mexico and the United States as well as in several country music festivals in Quebec.
She recently performed at the notorious Capitole de Québec theatre in Québec City and supported Nashville country star Robby Johnson on his “Don’t Look Back” Quebec tour in 2016. In 2017, she supported renown French Canadian artists such as Zachary Richard, Patrick Normand, Vincent Vallières and Luce Dufault. In summer 2018, she will be performing at the Festival Western de St-Tite, one of Canada’s biggest country festivals.
Grand Prize Winner for MTV’s “Steal The Spotlight” Contest, and with three feature film placements including “American Pie: Book Of Love” and “I Hate Valentine’s Day”, Melinda Ortner has been performing all over the world garnering attention with her sound that’s often compared to a mix of artists like Amy Winehouse, Adele, and Regina Spektor. She recently wrote and performed on rapper “Shirt’s” single “Vanity Fair”, which reached over half a million plays on Spotify recently.
Melinda has won “Best Of Sundance” at the Sundance Film Festival twice in a row, and has performed at the pre-VMA’s opening for Cobra Starship, Miguel, and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. She was chosen as one of 15 songwriters of the year for ASCAP’s “Johnny Mercer Project” that takes place at Northwestern University in Chicago. With her second EP on the way, Melinda has over 100K views for her single “Heartbeats” on YouTube which can be heard in American Pie: Book Of Love.
She recently was cast as the lead in a short film also lending her song “Maybe” as the recurring theme melody for the film.
Phoebe has been writing and performing original music from a young age working her way through local music venues. She made her first appearance on Radio Oxford just before her 15th birthday with a live performance of her song ‘Angel.’ However, she was already moving away from the folk/pop genre towards the more soul inspired sound that would take her to the Grand Final of Open Mic UK at the Birmingham NEC and her biggest audience so far. The songs she sang in the competition, ‘Another Sad Song’ and ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears,’ both won Rocket Fuel Awards for Best Original Song, the latter also being selected for the final of the UK Songwriting Competition. In 2017 she moved to London and in 2018 she will take her show as far north as Edinburgh but began with gigs in Southend, London and Banbury, where she will return in October to play the main stage of the Folk Festival to support Fairport Convention. Phoebe is working on a new EP with the amazing musicians she has started working with in London and continues to add to her catalogue of songs. Her next release will be a single ‘Autumn Leaves’ which will be available soon.
