Tonight we have an evening of great live music from:
Teresa Storch began busking in the Boston subways, after getting laid-off from a job. She has since become a performer of riveting strength and emotional power, has released three studio albums, and toured for over 10 years. Her soulful songwriting balances on the fence between folk and jazz, drawing comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Shawn Colvin
Switzerland punches above its weight in a lot of departments: chocolate, cheese,
wristwatches, tennis stars. But when it comes to putting pop acts on the
international map, the country has not had much to shout about – until now.
Miracle Four is about to change all that. The new girl group comprising Alena,
Amber, Arina and Emilia hail from the Alpine Rhine Valley where they have
won over audiences with a refreshing blend of youthful talent and sophisticated
musicianship. Further afield, their social media presence has helped to secure
them a recording contract with the German label NB Germany, although the
deal very nearly ended before it had begun.
NB Germany’s social media team first spotted the group on Instagram,
prompting the label’s CEO Daniel Loitz to send an email expressing interest in
seeing them play live. The message landed in the group’s junk mail folder
where it sat, unseen, for about a month. Eventually, Loitz messaged them again
via Instagram, urging them to check their emails. Finally, contact was made,
and Loitz flew out to see their very next gig, at a youth club in a town called
Mels. The gig was tiny but Loitz could see a huge potential.
“In this era of online streaming and social media, it doesn’t matter where a
group comes from,” Loitz says. “It’s what they can do. Do they write their own
songs and play their instruments? Are they authentic? I was looking for a group
that could have universal appeal and make evergreen music. I could see their
Commanding attention with powerful soulful vocals and virtuosic guitar work, Blake Bastion crafts music that is both cinematic and cathartic, fusing worldly influences with rousing folk rock. The fast rising 29-year-old singer-songwriter and guitarist from Brighton has developed his own distinctive sound from performing in the streets and touring the UK, Europe and East Africa over the past two years.
Newly formed indie band from West London. Formed at the London College of Music consisting of Sophia Brenan, Jack Charles, Jack Phillips and Cameron Molyviatis. The band are currently falling into the indie music scene in and around london and working on a debut EP.
Reading based indie-pop duo, Ciircus Street, are firmly putting their stamp on the current world of popular music. Consisting of Sam Brett (vocals/ guitar) and Jim Crowder (vocals/ keyboard), the duo was formed one night in Oxford after walking past the city’s ‘Circus Street’. Both the boys agreed it would make a good band name, but it wasn’t until later that night when they attended a gig and knocked back a few drinks, that the pair decided to form a duo.
Whilst Sam and Jim list notable artists such as James Morrison, Jack Johnson and Ed Sheeran as their inspirations, when it comes to writing music, the pair admit that they are in fact influenced significantly by each other. Consequently, it is clear to see the chemistry between the two which bounces off each other, forming Ciircus Street’s individual sound. Think attitude-filled, acoustic guitar mixed with perfectly harmonising vocals – uniquely described in the past as a mixture of ‘salt and honey’, displaying the contrasting, yet compatible nature of their voices.
