For our March edition on Sun 20th we have the fantastic Travis Shaw. Saltburn singer Travis was recently invited to do a coveted From The Glasshouse session at the Sage up in Gateshead and he put together an absolutely spellbinding set, reworking his original material to just guitar & piano, letting the raw emotion of his lyrics shine through. We can’t wait to see Travis bring this special show to Teesside for the first time.
Also playing is the fantastic Melanie Baker. Hailing from the beautiful Lake District, Melanie’s two self-released EPs “Dreamer” (2018) and “Broken” (2020) have got over a million streams on Spotify alone and received radio play from BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 1. Fresh new artist Will Keam completes the bill – a debut show from a guys with bags of potential.
April‘s offering on Sun 10th comes from Brooklyn-based singer songwriter Annie Keating as part of her full European tour. Annie will be playing her sublime alt-country americana with a blistering four-piece band – a must for fans of Lucinda Williams, John Prine and Bonny Rait. Talent spotted by BBC Radio’s Bob Harris, she has performed at leading festivals – Take Root (Netherlands), Glasgow Americana Festival, Maverick (UK), Buscadero (Italy) NXNE and The Brooklyn Americana Fest. Sharing the bill with the likes of John Hiatt and Bon Iver, Annie has toured internationally in a dozen countries and in 2021 released a fifteen song tour de force – her 10th album “Bristol County Tides” – that shows her at the peak of her powers.
In May we have the magical Nel Unlit launching their brand new album ‘Ephemera; or, Tosh and the girl’ with a stellar supporting cast including Faithful Johannes, Harriet Bradshaw & Benjamin Amos. The band officially formed in 2016 from past and present members of Sullivan and Gold, Dilettante, Dressed Like Wolves, Pellethead, General Sherman and Hold Music and began releasing music through DIY label Spooker Rekkids, based in the attic of musical institution Westgarth Social Club. Singles “Fireflies” and “Apple” earned the band critical acclaim, radio play on BBC Radio 6, track of the week on BBC Tees and comparisons to Nick Drake, Richard Dawson, Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver.
