The Live Music Project is back for its first gig night of 2015 with a fantastic lineup featuring some amazing new acts and some LMP favorites, we hope you can join us for what is guaranteed to be a foot stomping night of quality music.
Silverspace began jamming at the very beginning of 2000 and describe themselves as ‘THE hippy trippy jam band for the 21st century!’ Fusing together elements of each musician’s influences, from Trance to Space-Rock to Dub-Funk and beyond, the Silverspace Sound is a psychedelic melting-pot of free-spirited improvisation blended into a unique set of tunes around which their live set and recordings are based.
The Maida Vales welcome you to the strange and confusing world of Paul Littler, Jo Abraso, Matteo Cervellin and Arturs Reirs. Four lads on a musical mission to fill your heads with melodic madness and musical genius.
Their refreshing approach to music sees The Maida Vales avoid the usual suspect sounds that we’ve all heard time and time again. Instead, the band favour the more eccentric tones and feel good numbers of the early Stones and Kinks, Ska skanking Upsetters and the raucous onstage madness of The Libertines.
Navaro is an act built around the writing of Steve Austin and Pete White. Their most recent album ‘Heartlands’ features the distinctive vocal blend they share with UK Country artist, Beth Navaro from whom the act takes its name. Three friends with distinctive voices formed a band together around 7 years ago. Their blend of country/folk tinged acoustic music led to an indie record deal, two albums, critical acclaim and numerous gigs and festival appearances.
The Portraits are husband and wife alternative folk duo Jeremy & Lorraine Millington who played Glastonbury Festival 2014 and have been spun on BBC 6 Music.
The duo were crowned Best International Artist 2011 by respected U.S. station Radio Crystal Blue, and their fifth studio album, ‘Life In Sepia’, was released on CD and download formats on 2nd December, 2013, with one song, Malala, a tribute to the Pakistani schoolgirl, played by Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music.
The Portraits are currently attempting to record 2000 voices across the UK for a life-saving single for Leukaemia – taking the real people of this country into the Top 40 with them, they hope! You can purchase a copy of the track here.
“An utterly entrancing live act… a sound that is gloriously uplifting and truly magical” – ANDY ROPEK, BLACKHEATH HALLS, LONDON
