The Live Music Project: Saturday 25 January 2014

The first Live Music Project Gig of 2014, takes place on Saturday 25 January, we are delighted to be joined by  Indi & the Vegas, Tom Craven, Rae Kelly and Starseedz, the doors open at 7.30pm and as always this is a FREE event.

Headlining are Indi and the Vegas, a highly charismatic and enjoyable band that perform a mix of original songs and covers that will leave you begging for more. Describing themselves as “Queen meeting Prince and jamming through the Red Hot Chilli Peppers greatest hits!”  Indi’s guitar playing and vocal ability is spellbinding and a real treat to watch.

Also performing is Tom Craven; from sing-alongs to heartfelt ballads, Tom has an intense emotion to his vocals and his music has subtle elements towards indie and folk, but his real strength lies in his storytelling and confidence/presence on stage. An honest & bold acoustic troubadour!

Endorsed by Ovation guitars and having toured California amongst gigs throughout the UK and Europe from the age of 20, Tom (Now 27) continues to steadily make his mark with his “ability to blend acoustics and rock in a unique way; creating a perfect blend of music for all ages”. With two amateur demo’s and a 5-track début EP ‘Unseen Angel’ released in 2008, Tom’s repertoire has been classed as “a bold, enigmatic collection of songs from a heartfelt and ultimately honest talent”.

As the Watford Observer stated in 2009 – “Tom’s soulful acoustic sound translates beautifully into both his powerful ballads and upbeat melodic tracks. Catchy songs about life, love and everything in between mean that this talented young musician is definitely one to watch”.

Rae Kelly is a Dublin-born singer/songwriter now based in St Albans, Hertfordshire. Her charming blend of alternative pop and evocative lyrics endear her to audiences.  Rae has played venues including The Alban Arena, Proud Galleries Camden and the Elgiva Theatre in Chesham. In July 2012 she was delighted to be invited to play a 90 minute set at the ZMF Festival in Freiburg, Germany that featured performances from Janelle Monae and Patti Smith.

Her début EP, ‘Render all your thoughts’ was well received by local radio stations and has featured on BBC Introducing.

“Rae Kelly’s blend of jazz, pop and thought provoking lyrics provides a slightly alternative musical intrigue…her music takes on a unique sound that meanders through sultry melodies and catchy upbeat rhythms.” – Jamie Day, The Review

Starseedz, are a St. Albans based duo have 2 members, Catrine O’Neill (Vocals, guitar) and Jon Willoughby (Guitars, backing vocals), who’s combined song writing brings together a range of influences, the result being vibey and atmospheric. Catrine’s breathy bittersweet vocals lend themselves to Jonathan’s mellifluous guitars and musical interpretation.

Fortunately, Starseedz was born when Catrine and Jon fell hopelessly in love. The band has played the London circuit under the previous name Spacechik. They have played at the music industry soccer six charity celebrity football tournament and their music has been featured on lifestyle T.V series “freespirit”. They have grabbed the attention of a few industry insiders Echo, Mushroom and a few independents but a recording contract still remains elusive. Not to be put off, they are going boldly where everyone has been before and putting their music on the web where a lot more people can search for it, stumble on it, listen to it and perhaps want to hear more?

Their first album ‘Starchild’ was released in early 2012, created from the love energy surrounding the two and is very honest and soul bearing. They are now releasing their second album ‘MerKaba’ and are playing venues in Hertfordshire and North London. Both albums are available on their website, as well as itunes, amazon and all major download sites.
