Friday Live: Nuadha Quartet

"World jazz with an endearing Scots lilt, featuring strong themes, passionate sax and Jaco-style electric bass." The Independent.

Through playing together over the past three years Nuadha Quartet have established a wide-ranging approach to music yet still produce a distinctive ‘Nuadha’ sound. While the emphasis is on memorable tunes the band also draws influence from Brazilian, Moroccan and Gaelic cultures.

Based in the Welsh Borders, Nuadha Quartet was put together in 2016 by Colin Tully, composer of cult classic film, Gregory’s Girl and ex-John Martyn sideman, Chris Egan on tenor and soprano sax, Carles Riba on electric bass and Pedro Brown on drums and percussion. Brazilian rhythms, a shamelessly melodic approach with a dash of Celtic seasoning are blended to create an appetising jazz stew.

Friday Live: Luke De-Sciscio

Luke De-Sciscio is a UK singer-songwriter whose music sounds like it was transported from a different era of songwriting. Poetically intense and sonically intimate, his releases are recorded almost exclusively live. 

Luke's thirst for authenticity draws from the age old adage; 'the truth will set you free.' This mantra which underpins the entirety of his catalogue takes no fuller flight than on 2019's critically acclaimed 'Good Bye Folk Boy'. This 11 track journey was recorded sequentially over the space of 2 months, with each song being recorded on the day it was written.  Shortly after the digital release of 'Good Bye Folk Boy’, a collaboration between Vinyl Moon and Luke De-Sciscio was announced that will finally bring Luke De-Sciscio's music to vinyl.   

 ‘Good Bye Folk Boy” has received critical acclaim.  The Indie Folx awarded the album 4.3/5 stars describing 'Good Bye Folk Boy' as the epitome of the genre. We All Want Someone To Shout For championed the record claiming 'this is why we do what we do.' To pre-order the Good Bye Folk Boy album head to: https://lukedesciscio.bandcamp.com/

Saturday Shenanigans: The Mighty Vipers

The Mighty Vipers is an eight-piece party machine from the north of England. A composite of brass band culture mixed with the protest activism of punk rock, driven forward with a reggae-inspired groove. 

“Like a steamroller of sound; smashing you round the face with a wet kipper while you make your best sex face” – Express and Star

Just like the black, sooty stuff that fuelled the industrial revolution, the Vipers are miners of kinetic frenzy, both onstage and off, creating a unified sea of sweat, smiles and celebration. Set your brain into defragmentation mode and let the soul man your human.

“Mighty Vipers are a new ska band from Shrewsbury and their album Elemental is a great take on all the bits of the ska story from Rocksteady and Calypso to Punk Ska. Also great lyrics and melodies – It’s hard to disagree with that having heard Chasing the Sun” – Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6 Music

Nightingales Watch Present: Luna Bec

Folk duo Nightingales Watch return to the globe this March, this time presenting Luna Bec

"the beginning of a bright future for this truly great singer-songwriter" - She Makes Music 

Luna Bec is a rare artist who is able to share their soul and include you in the experience. Her style is authentic, raw and vulnerable; her songs explore the human condition from the intimate to the universal. 

"Relatable and inspirational" - Get Into This

A multi-instrumentalist, her music has taken a journey of many turns through jazz, funk, and ancient Georgian folksong. Like some of her early musical influences Nina Simone, Simon & Garfunkel and Bob Dylan, her passion for social justice often finds its way into her music. 

Her second single "Power To Change," is a haunting and uplifting call to arms on the theme of the climate crisis, along with its powerful video of the youth strikers.

"Stunning" - Loud Women 

In support of Extinction Rebellion.

Saturday Shenanigans: True Strays

The True Strays are a vintage loving, blues fuelled, dirty rock and roll band. Their live shows are a joyous hoedown of huge bass driven riffs, a howling tornado of resonator guitar, cacophonous drums and soaring Hammond organ.

“Rising stars of the UK Americana scene” – The List

Influences span the history of modern music with great admiration for the delta blues of the 40s and 50s, British Invasion and Psychedelic Rock of the 60s and 70s, Southern Rock and Soul and modern age Punk, Rock and Blues artists. Blues music is at the heart of everything they do but their sound isn’t bound to those rules or that genre.

Influences include greats like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf, Jimi Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac, The Doors and Pink Floyd and more recent punk and rock and roll bands like Nirvana, QOTSA and Idles.

“A hip-shaking barrage of blues rock n roll.”  Clunk Magazine

 “Their creations have vitality, it’s more than just words and music, they pack a real punch and make you sit up and take notice…” – Blues & Roots Radio

“One of the names to look out for” - Metro

Saturday Shenanigans: The Grahams

The Grahams are New York grown, Nashville based couple Alyssa and Doug Graham. With stellar songwriting and bold arrangements, the new record is a love letter to the timeless pop albums Alyssa and Doug grew up with, harkening back to a time when Brian Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, The Ronettes and Diana Ross & The Supremes ruled the airwaves.

The 2015 follow-up, Glory Bound, influenced by the couple’s train adventure all over America, was declared, “easily one of the best Americana albums of the year” - No Depression. Rattle the Hocks, a film directed by North Mississippi Allstars’ Cody Dickinson, chronicled the journey and became an international film-festival favorite.

With their new album, comes a new sound. Kids Like Us, is a love letter to timeless pop albums, harkening back to when Brian Wilson & Dusty Springfield ruled the airwaves. Written during a wild motorcycle ride along Route 66, at the height of the 2016 election season, the chaotic stimulus they witnessed was channeled into bold, aching melodies that grew out of motel-room whispers and studio experimentation. “Everything about Route 66 – the neon signs, motels, cars, the menus – are stuck in a different time,” Alyssa says. As a result, the music has moments of fantasy & the supernatural. It’s big, lush, ambitious & profoundly satisfying with its own unique alt pop sensibility.
