The Sheila Waterfield Band

£8.00

- December 3rd, 2018

Sheila’s sound is a unique blend of jazz, folk, soul and blues. She is an accomplished, award winning vocalist and a very popular performer at music venues and festivals. She is one of those impressive singers who can instill a beautiful warm delicacy into ballads and a lively, spirited energy into the blues. She received raving reviews for her performances at The Festival of Song Cheltenham, Jazz Live Grimsby and Big Band Festival Aberdeenshire.

Sheila has written, arranged and produced her forthcoming album ‘Every Sunrise’. The songs tell stories of loss, self discovery, hope, gratitude, love and belief. The title track is now available to download. Sheila is looking forward to releasing the album later this year.

We Are Leif

£8.00

- March 4th, 2019

Led by the songwriting team of vocalist Louise Victoria and drummer, Mark Whitlam, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Neo-Soul, R’n’B and Down Tempo genres.  Louise’s voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens.  Musically there are nods in the direction of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack and Lamb.

Oxley Meier Guitar Project

£8.00

- April 1st, 2019

Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of latin America to English pastoralism. Hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more! 

​For their live gigs, the Oxley-Meier Guitar Project aim to entertain by playing with a spontaneity and an intuitive interplay between them that keeps them fresh and fired up from gig to gig. The duo therefore comes to the performance with what they hope are the audiences anticipations: to expect the unexpected!
