    DEANS OWENS & The Southerners | NATALIE SHAY | CHASING SUMMER

    Doors 19:00 Live 19:15

    DEAN OWENS & THE SOUTHERNERS | Saturday 08 June 2019 | Thrilled to welcome AMAUK Winner 2019 Best Song with The Southerners, Thomas Collison AMA UK 2018 Instrumentalist of The Year and renowned guitarist Jim Maving. 

    Dean Owens & The Southerners

    Award winning Scottish singer songwriter Dean Owens is widely hailed as one of UK’s finest troubadours, with fans including Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh and BBC legend "Whispering" Bob Harris.

    The title track of his most recent, widely acclaimed album, Southern Wind, won the UK Song of the Year Award at the 2019 Americana Music Association UK Awards.

    Fresh from a 2 month USA tour, Dean is delighted to be joining forces with the formidable talents of Tom Collison (Instrumentalist of the Year 2018 (AMA-UK)) and renowned guitarist Jim Maving. – collectively Dean Owens and The Southerners.

    Armed with a searingly soulful voice, skilfully crafted songs and earworm inducing melodies, Dean is a spellbinding and hugely engaging live performer, with a hurricane of stories, songs and banter. Dean’s music conjures the wild romanticism of the open road, distilling the Scottish and Americana into a unique blend of celtic spirit, country soul. The unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s storytellers.

    A Dean Owens gig isn’t just about the songs though. Dean is also a witty raconteur, with anecdotes about his travels and the songs – from an 8 album solo career, and his days with Scotland’s original Americana band, the Felsons - peppered throughout his set. His performance crosses genres, as he takes his audience from tears to laughter to rocking out in the course of just a few songs.

    MORGANWAY | SHELLY FAIRCHILD

    Doors 19:00 Live 19:30

    MORGANWAY

    A six-piece from East Anglia founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Throughout their early years the boys played in various bands but struggled to find a box to fit into. Too rock for folk, too pop for indie, too indie for country, or so it seemed. Choosing to follow their instincts rather than convention, they became Morganway and suddenly people started listening.
     
    Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matthew Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting. They've built this into a live show that in one moment is classic rock and the next mystical folk, catching the attention of Whispering Bob Harris and many others in the rising British Americana scene. Their collective obsession with ‘70s West Coast rock is also met with a love of Brit Rock, folk and modern Americana.
    Described as “One of Britain’s most exciting unsigned bands...they are going places.”

    "This band are truly something special and surely destined for much bigger things, they generate such electricity and atmosphere and tonight was
    an absolute pleasure to watch.”
    Chris Farlie (W21 Music, Buckle & Boots 2018 review)

    "Heralding euphoric choruses and electric riffs of Fleetwood Mac and The Strokes, the harmonies of icons ELO meeting The Magic Numbers somewhere along the way, and the modern female vocal of Haim, Morganway are quite the tour de force soup, but let’s be frank here: this Norfolk outfit doesn’t sound like anyone else."
    - Never Enough Notes

    SHELLY FAIRCHILD | Saturday 21 September 2019 | Rescheduled from June 08 | Soulful, gospel-tinged brand of alternative country | Signed to major label Columbia for debut album Ride with top 40 hit. | Toured with Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Tim McGraw | Current 2017 album Buffalo featuring guest vocalists inc Lucie Silvas, Fairground Saints, K.S.

    CARTER SAMPSON | SARAH PEACOCK | tba

    Doors 18:45 Live 19:15

    CARTER SAMPSON | Saturday 26 October 2019 | LRB is Lucky and privileged, the self penned 'Queen of Oklahoma' who walks on the 'Wilder Side' is headlining our End of Year Showdown. No surprise Okie-born singer/songwriter Carter is blessed by a musical family legacy that includes talents like Roy Orbison.

     

    "Sometimes in life you make your own luck, so pick up this album from Carter Sampson and you will surely be rewarded." -highwayqueens.com

    Carter Sampson's fourth full-length album Wilder Side is a soulful and soft country masterpiece.  The Oklahoma City singer-songwriter has a penchant for penning songs that don't need bluster or bombast to tell a powerful story.  Focusing on themes of heartbreak and the open road, Wilder Side is the kind of pure country record that has far more in common with classic releases from the likes of Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris than it does with anything one will find on country radio.  Fellow Oklahoma artists Ali Harter and John Moreland made appearances on the record lending their distinctive voices, perfectly complementing Sampson's beautifully sorrowful vocals.  And that more than anything is what drives this record, Sampson's breathtaking voice.  This record is haunting and mesmerizing and simply beautiful.

    "Add her high quality song writing and gorgeous vocals and she is no longer a promising country singer songwriter but one who can now be talked about as being one of the very best around. If 'Wilder side' sowed the seeds this tremendous album brings that talent into full bloom." -americanrootsuk.com

    "Lucky proves that there is plenty of ground to cover even when the terrain is smooth. It also proves that Sampson is in it for the long haul and deserves all the success that will continue to come her way." -nodepression.com

    SARAH PEACOCK | Saturday 26 October 2019 | Award winning rock n roll and southern soul | 1.2 million miles, 2,800 shows, and fourteen years of flying solo is quite a road trip. Sarah Peacock bridges gaps between Country, Blues, Americana, and Rock-N-Roll. Her music is raw, truth telling, and fiercely unique

    Held hostage by her record label at 21, the troubadour life came with a rude awakening for the young Georgia native. Peacock made her home in a ‘92 Volvo with her dog and a guitar, and for nearly seven years earned a living in the corner shadows of American dive bars. 

    The tables turned in 2011 when an anonymous fan helped Peacock buy out of her recording contract. Since then, she has released six additional albums and won multiple awards for her songwriting. “Hurricane” won Best Song in the American Songwriting Awards, and “Beautiful” was a winner with International Unsigned Only. “The Cool Kids,” and “Are We There Yet” have nominated her for Best Female Artist and Best Song in a number of songwriting competitions. Peacock was also named Listening Room Network’s Artist of the Year. 

    In 2013, Peacock released her self-produced album, Albuquerque Sky, recorded in hotel rooms across the country while maintaining her rigorous 250 show tour schedule. Albuquerque Sky was followed by a season of goodbyes, tremendous growth, and challenges, and became the catalyst for her next album, Dream On (2016). “This record helped me get un-stuck. I had a collection of live recordings which became Dream On. After such a creative dry spell, I knew I needed to hit the road and stay out a while – reconnect with my fans,” says a determined Peacock. “I found this old silver eagle tour bus in Austin, TX. I was so enchanted with it, and the renovation process really reigniting my troubadour flame. So I bought my very first bus. Oh, what a feeling!” But less than 4 months later, she would watch it burn to the ground at a California truck stop. 

    One of Peacock’s fans voluntarily initiated a fundraiser, which is what kept her on the road. Another fan, so touched by her story, donated his motor home so that her tour could go on. That special connection between Sarah Peacock and her fans is what gives her the strength to continue overcoming. “You have to be unstoppable, even when you don’t believe you are.” That’s the modus operandi for the now half Tennessean, half Texan road warrior.  
    Sarah Peacock is active in the anti-bullying community, and her song, “The Cool Kids” has become a powerful anti-bullying anthem. Its message has taken on a life of its own. As she travels the country, Peacock shares her story in schools, empowering young people to embody her message of kindness and love. 
    Peacock is also an animal lover and tours with her pups as often as she can. Her late road dog, Gibson, was one of the first canines to receive a prosthetic mitral valve in a clinical trial at CSU in Ft. Collins, CO in May of 2017. Unfortunately, Gibson passed away. To honor his memory, Peacock recently formed her own 501(c)3, The Band Waggin,’ benefiting various animal health and rescue programs throughout the United States. 

    After completing two EP’s for Nashville label, American Roots Records, Peacock plans to release a full length album on her own label in 2019. Sarah Peacock is the truest definition of a self-made overcomer, hustler, and DIY machine. She’s got a remarkable knack for finding beauty in the ashes, and there’s no denying the future is looking bright for this tenacious up and comer.
