Danni Nicholls is one of UK's finest singer songwriters and a big favourite with us folks at LRB. Her blend of smoky soul, & heart wrenching alt-country delivered with power and subtlety is something to behold.
This time she will be headlining with a full band including musical maestro Max Milligan on guitar and will be showcasing new songs from her forthcoming album recorded and produced with some of Nashville's top musicians
"[Danni] slips effortlessly between smoky soul, folk-pop and heart-wrenching alt-country, all in a rich voice somewhere between [Emmylou] Harris and Alison Krauss."
This is sure to be a musical treat!
Kelley McRae Duo with Matt Castelein . New EP Easy on My Mind debut at No 16 on European American Charts.
Drawing comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, the duo’s music is wide ranging - comprising haunting ballads, tender love songs, and energetic guitar driven songs full of hope. Paste Magazine’s 4 Star review raves “Kelley moves effortlessly from the mournful tones of the plantation to the celebratory swing of the saloon, from songs of loss and decay to hymns of love and grace.” Acclaimed film director Wim Wenders told the San Francisco Chronicle that Kelley’s songs move him to tears, and BBC Radio’s Bob Harris calls the songs ‘brilliant.’
Colchester singer-songwriter Rhiannon Mair is an exciting and energetic live performer with an edgy style and great stage presence. A hybrid of Alanis Morrisette and KT Tunstall, but with her own distinctive voice and vocal delivery.
