8:00pm STEPHEN MURPHY


Stephen Murphy is a British singer/songwriter based in South London. He grew up heavily inspired by artists such as Jeff Buckley, The Beatles, R.E.M and Bruce Springsteen, which he channels in his music. He started performing regularly in 2018 in London after a lot of interest in his sets at open mic events, at which he played originals and covers on both piano and guitar. In Summer 2021, he was part of the summer sessions at Pear Tree Cafe in which he performed every Friday night in Battersea Park. He released an E.P on Spotify in 2019 called “Novelty” which included his first single “Nancy”. He is currently writing and recording his first album which is due late 2021.

8:30pm LUKE GITTINGS


Luke Gittins is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist from Chippenham. Recently, Luke learned the Ed Sheeran song “Afterglow” which he did in a matter of minutes after it was posted on Ed’s social media. Luke immediately posted his version on his own social media and Ed Sheeran watched it! Luke then attended an Ed Sheeran concert on August 25th, 2021 at the HMV 100th anniversary show at HMV Empire in Coventry. Ed spotted Luke in the crowd, pointed to him, and said: “SO I uhhh, so I released a song at Christmas. By the way, I thoroughly enjoyed your cover, I thought it was wonderful. ”Ed then explained to the audience …” I was like – I saw, this guy did an amazing cover of this song. I actually, when I watched it, was like ahh man he kinda sings it better than I do. But anyway, I really liked it – it was beautiful.” A fitting tribute to the talented upcoming artist, Luke Gittins.

9:30pm JAMIE RAFFERTY


Jamie is a 22-year-old singer/songwriter from Scotland. He grew up – and still lives – in an ancient mining village nestled in the countryside called Croy, which having once attracted Irish immigrants lies some 30 minutes away from the city lights of Glasgow in the west and Edinburgh in the east. Its railway line with four arches pivots between these 2 major cities, offering a gateway to the wilder and increasingly awe-inspiring landscapes of Northern Scotland. Raised in this small and close-knit community, Jamie grew up in the shadow of Croy Hill which rises above a vast stone Quarry. Labouring by day, he learned to play many instruments in his spare time, driven by the desire to express the music coursing through his blood.

The first instrument he learned was the drums at an early age, whilst simultaneously listening to the bygone era of the local brass band known as the Croy Silver Band – subsequently picking up the piano, bass, electric and acoustic guitars. Wishing he had experienced the classic songwriting era of Laurel Canyon, which sits just above Santa Monica in L.A. he is a mature and reflective soul on young shoulders. Credibly delivering both soaring guitar anthems and intimate ballads, Jamie writes about what he knows – stories, memories passed down, and the heartfelt ever-changing moods and questions about love, life, and hope. Jamie’s appearance at The Bedford will be a solo acoustic set.
