See seven amazing artists and get a free drink on usHighlights:
The sounds of Nashville are coming to town and whether you’re a Stetson-wearing-cowboy-wannabe or just a lover of great music, you can enjoy a great night at our UK Country gig on Tuesday February 28.
In association with W21 Music, we’ve selected seven brilliant artists from the vibrant UK Country music scene for your aural pleasure.
See these exciting acts perform at the legendary Jazz Cafe for just £10 and you can even have your first drink on us if you get there before 8pm.
Living in London, you may not have a pair of cowboy boots and a lasso lying around (or maybe you do and we're pretty jealous if that's the case) but that doesn't mean you can't appreciate a little bit of southern charm. If you love your music live and you want to experience the new wave Country phenomenon our fair city has to offer, we've got one doozy of a night planned for you.
We’ve teamed up with W21 Music to assemble a lineup of the very finest acts that will have you stomping your feet and shouting yeehaw at our favourite Camden haunt, The Jazz Cafe. Witness the Country revolution that's happening right now and see some of the Brits that are playing their part in this evolution of sound. Tickets are just £10 and if you turn up before 8pm, we'll throw in your first drink too.
- The Southern Companion
Although The Southern Companion is a new name to most people, the band's collective CV is long and varied. Their sound carries with it the weight of extensive touring and studio experience gained through years as session players for a wide range of other artists such as Rumer, Lana Del Ray, James Morrison, Lulu, Pete Townsend (The Who) and Jon Allen.
Following on from the debut album 'Short Stories and Tall Tales', the latest record '1000 Days of Rain' sees the band comfortably established in their own British take on the Americana/Country genre.
- Holloway Road
The first thing you notice about UK duo Holloway Road’s live performance is that it doesn’t look like country music; they’re more baseball caps and trainers than Stetsons and boots. But the sound they make sits somewhere between the country-pop chart and the Nashville songwriting they both grew up listening to.
Voted UK Country Duo of the Year (2016), they haven’t been afraid to gain momentum while learning their craft - having played the Martin stage at CMA Fest 2015, performed for the Country to Country (C2C) crowds on two consecutive years, written with Jacob Bryant (John & Jacob), partied with Kacey Musgraves, and landed both their EPs in the iTunes country top ten thanks to radio play across the UK for their single ‘Little Harder’ - success in a growing international country scene is increasingly becoming part of the Holloway Road story.
- Thorne Hill
Thorne Hill brings UK Country Music to its feet, with this, his acclaimed debut album 'No More Holding Back'. A collection of self-penned contemporary Country songs that will take you on a journey through life, love, heartbreak and hope. With lyrics that resonate and strike the heart, it is no surprise that he is fast becoming one of the hottest Country singer-songwriters in the UK. Thorne teams up with top US Producer Justin Johnson, together with the UK’s hottest Musicians, to bring a refreshingly new and exciting sound to Country Music.
Thorne is no stranger to the stage, having sung professionally from an early age, enabling him to tour internationally and hone his craft, playing to audiences of a few thousand at a time, as well as a handful at more intimate gatherings.
- Backwoods Creek
Backwoods Creek are a seven-piece Country band based in Guildford – Surrey, taking influences from Country greats such as: Zac Brown Band, Aaron Watson, Brad Paisley, Justin Moore and more. Their debut EP 'Stories From The Dirt Roads' presents the diversity in their song writing style and musicianship. From the modern elements of Country-Pop in ‘Do As I Say’ and ‘Feel The Burn’, to the more traditional old school sound Country in ‘Freedom On Wheels’ and ‘Lonely House’, balancing the best of both worlds. Having produced, engineered and mixed the EP themselves they completely understand their own creative vision and direction for their sound.
- Liv Austen
Few are as excited about the boom of British country music as London-based, Norwegian-born singer and songwriter Liv Austen. Just as she moved to London and started performing her own songs, the love for the genre was growing quickly. Liv's two independently released EPs gained a lot of attention from fans, musicians, and reviewers.
She is now considered a main player on the UK country scene with performances at festivals like C2C, airplay on BBC Radio 2 and a single written by Ben Earle of The Shires to her name.
Ceri-Rose was born in the British countryside and grew up listening to music from all walks of life courtesy of her parents, whose varying tastes gave her the opportunity to experience a magical medley of genres which have greatly influenced her development as a singer-songwriter. Having spent most of her childhood singing her way around the house and through school, she started writing her own material for fun as a teenager and was incredibly excited to release her debut EP "Highway of Dreams" earlier this year.
- Beth Thornton
Beth didn't start songwriting until around 15 years old. When people would ask her how she got into it, they always think her answer is funny: 'Bon Jovi'. Not many 15-year-old girls were listening to an '80s rock band at the time but they released a Nashville influenced album and she couldn't get enough! She loved the songwriting, lyrics, and catchy hooks. It introduced her to the world of country. Dixie Chicks, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley anything like them and she was addicted to how listening to that kind of music made her feel.
She decided she wanted to learn guitar so she could play these songs. Her brother played so she asked him to give her lesson. It lasted 10 minutes before they had a huge argument. So she taught herself.
