8:00 pm CAITLIN AND OLLIE CLARK


Caitlin was born and raised in the new forest a few miles outside the seaside town Lymington. Her mother and uncle are both concert pianists, her father – a writer, and her brothers and sister – musicians and artists; she grew up surrounded by culture. Caitlin trained to be a jazz singer and got regular gigs at well-known London clubs and bars doing the classic standards and hanging around with incredible musicians and performers.

Inspired by everything from the iconic works of Amy Winehouse, Billie Holiday, and Aretha Franklin to the new and disruptive sounds of Pip Millet and Olivia Dean. Caitlin, 21, has become a skilled singer/songwriter described as ‘the Venus flytrap of soul and jazz with roots a mile deep’. Captivating on and off stage, she is known for being wildly musical and sharp-witted.

As well as being a strong vocal soloist, she plays flute, guitar and piano and can harmonise almost anything. She has written songs with Bruno Major (Lianne La Havas, MJ Cole) and Jimmy Napes (Sam Smith, Disclosure).

TONY MOORE


On Feb 1st 2021, Singer/Songwriter Tony Moore uploaded a live video performance of a new song he had just finished. It was called AWAKE, it lasted 9 mins, it had a lot of guitar solos, A LOT of guitar solos and the main vocal didn’t even come in till after 4 mins!

However, within days, the feedback was incredibly positive as thousands of views racked up alongside a growing list of enthusiastic and complimentary comments. Having broken all the ‘pop’ rules to create a musical work that now seemed to capture people’s imagination, Tony was struck by a thunderbolt of a thought. Could this be the opening track of a concept album…yet to be written ? Thus, in that moment, the idea was born and Tony immediately set to work.

The subject matter? Well, the year we had all just experienced. The many things he had witnessed, experienced and thought about. The dark drama mixed with the surreal madness of a world locked down merged with the many emotionally introspective thoughts about his life’s journey to that point. Things that many millions of people will have all thought, felt and experienced in their own ways. Awake, the album, was created chronologically with Tony recording each track as it was written. The songs built a picture of events as seen through his eyes at different times through the 12 months leading to this point. Tony knew that he wanted the album to invoke as many emotional responses from those that heard it as possible, so he allowed himself to be completely vulnerable about welcoming streams of consciousness and musical inspiration to dictate the mood of each song.

The only goal he set was to have everything finished by the end of March. Deadlines force a very strict work ethic and so began an obsessive two months of writing and recording that resulted in 15 brand new songs which uniquely reflected the spirit of the times we are in. It didn’t stop there, Tony also had a vision for AWAKE to be a very special live show that would stimulate audience’s senses with an audio/visual experience that allowed the music to really make a difference to those that came to a performance. On May 18th 2021, the show made it’s live debut at The Bedford in Balham, London to a packed house and a standing ovation. Despite the fact that the album isn’t even released, and no one knew the songs yet, everyone was captivated and felt the power of the music touch them.
