Friday Live: Mica Jane

Mica Jane is an Indie Folk singer songwriter.

Her culturally mixed background has inspired her to write music that infuses different walks of life. Though her core is Folk she doesn't shy away from incorporating the sounds of Reggae with charismatic bass lines and keeping an uplifting feel with African + Indie Rock inspired beats and grooves. She has hit the ground running with her newly formed four piece band touring around London, Guildford and Basingstoke. Aspiring to capture the poetic visceral power of Bob Marley’s lyrics combined with the fascinating and sweet melodies of the Staves, Mica Jane's warm and witty storytelling is not to be missed.

Their debut album, Bea, was released as a luxury gatefold vinyl edition via new label Adderwell Music in Nov 2017.

Spindle Ensemble features pianist and multi-instrumentalist Daniel Inzani, Caelia Lunniss (violin), Harriet Riley(tuned percussion) and Jo Silverston (cello).

“Spindle Ensemble Bea (Adderwell Music): represent the best of the latest swathe of modern classical to hit theartsdesk on Vinyl.” The Arts Desk

Friday Live: Wednesday's Wolves + support from Velvet Circus

Wednesday's Wolves are Chrissy Renker and Ysabelle Durant, a female contemporary folk duo from Oxfordshire. Both third culture kids, they met while at school in Sri Lanka although their musical collaboration didn't start until they had both finished University. They first started playing and writing original material together in 2013. Since forming the band they have been playing at venues around the UK, mainly London and Oxfordshire, and have performed on the same bill as Amber Run, Seafret, Flyte, Beth Rowley, and Iain Archer. In 2017 their song "Off This Earth" was played on BBC Radio 1 by DJ Huw Stephens who went on to select it as his BBC Introducing Tip Of The Week. They were also invited to perform at BBC Music Introducing Hosts Amplify 2017 in London. 

Their songs use simple guitar riffs and vocal harmonies combined with percussive instruments such as cajon and glockenspiel to create emotive and evocative music, usually with a melancholic edge. 

“…Chrissy and Ysabelle each have vocal textures reminiscent of a mix of Joan Baez and Natalie Merchant, and together are able to create some incredible harmonies”
- Top Five Records 2014
