The Live Music Project is back in August with a rock/folk/indie vibe. Stolen Horse will be headlining the gig with support from Starseedz, Noel Cowley, Minnie Birch and Harry Phillips.
Musicians Teddy Pester, Ben Aylott and Ben Moore formed Stolen Horse in 2013 after meeting at the University of Herts. They came together sharing a similar vision for an alternative acoustic/folk band. Their musical influences include Fleet foxes, Seth Lakeman, Rory Gallagher and Bob Dylan to name a few, and they are currently mixing their debut EP, Two Ravens.
Starseedz are joining the line up on 30th August with their EP launch Little Bird. Starseedz are St. Albans based duo, Catrine O’Neill and Jon Willoughby, who’s combined song writing brings together a range of influences, the result being vibey and atmospheric.
Noel Cowley is a London based singer/songwriter. Noel’s understated vocals and instantly hummable tunes have been likened to Crowded House, Travis and Del Amitri. ’Wherever I Go’ from his new EP ‘Home Is Everywhere’ was played recently on BBC Radio 2.
Minnie Birch makes a welcome return to The Live Music Project. The singer songwriter from Hemel Hempstead makes ‘mend your heart songs’ which have been played on BBC introducing and Radio 2. She also opened for Joan Armatrading during her 2013 UK tour.
Harry Phillips is a 21 year old acoustic songwriter who will be making his Trestle debut. Originally from Aldbury, Hertfordshire Harry is now based in Somerset, Worcestershire, Berkhamsted and wherever else he ends up!
The Live Music Project is a community project run by volunteers and all the bands play free of charge. If you are interested in playing or volunteering at one of our live music events, please get in touch with Denise Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org
