Maariyah Nawab-Khan + THÉA

Maariyah Nawab-Khan + THÉA

Franco-American singer-songwriter THÉA makes jazz and soul music with a hint of folk and pop.

THÉA has always been surrounded by music. Between her mom’s Gospel and her dad’s love for jazz, she developed a passion for soul. At an early age, she entered a music program to remedy her shyness. There she learned to play several instruments (guitar, piano and drums) and encouraged to compose music of her own. She also learned about performing, in gigs throughout the year. Reveling in the colours and textures of music, she fell in love in particular with performance and composition.

From the beginning, THÉA was supported by her brother, house artist JAW. When she was 13, he gave gave her a mixer to produce her own songs. She soon began the first of many collaborations, notably with producers/DJs Agoria and Rose Ryot. In 2013 she was a special guest for French trio dOP’s set at France’s largest electronic music festival, Les Plages Éléctroniques in Cannes, in front of a crowd of 14 000. At fifteen, she released ‘Drink’, co-written with lyricist Lydia Golding. It appeared on JAW’s Midtown album, marking her official start as a singer-songwriter.

She moved to London in 2017 to study songwriting and expand her horizons. Today, THÉA wants to see how far she can go.

She’s already realised a number of dreams, like co-writing with The Dunwells, and performing with dOP again, this #me in the famous London nightclub, Fabric. She’s involved in many projects, such as co-writing an electronic EP with DJ Benoit Perbal, and working on her debut album Tea And The Biscuits. In 2019, she’ll be performing with her band all over London.

John Adams + Sam Gifford and The Innocent + MARK NOBLE + Kitty O'Neal

John Adams + Sam Gifford and The Innocent + MARK NOBLE + Kitty O'Neal

Sunday night’s live band line up;

ONLY £5 OTD

John Adams

A truly homegrown talent, John began his career busking on the streets, using the money to pay for his first release, fittingly entitled
"The Pavement is My Stage".

After the album reached No.7 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts he took a leap of faith and left his job as a Mathematics Teacher.

That gamble paid off and John has gone on to support household names such as:

  • Take That

  • Lemar

  • Stoo􏰀he

  • T'Pau

• Katherine Jenkin􏰀

"Sam Gifford and The Innocent" are a five piece indie and alternative rock band based in London. The band is fronted by singer/songwriter Sam Gifford.

Kitty O’Neal is a singer-songwriter from the U.K. In 2017, Kitty released two EPs, 'A Home' and 'OK', both receiving radio play on BBC Introducing and attracting venues in the South of England where she has supported household folk names Maz O'Connor and Meadowlark. Mixing her folk influences heard in 'A Home' with a love of RnB and electronic sound in 'OK', she is releasing an album in 2018 ahead of her UK summer tour which promises to encapsulate both of these moods in a unique and ever-evolving sound. Kitty's poignant songwriting, paired with a distinct emotive performance, alongside her band makes for a captivating and vibrant live experience, filled with both soulful melancholy and groove.

INDIE/ROCK - RYSE + The Mocking Jays + Guests

INDIE/ROCK - RYSE + The Mocking Jays + Guests

Wednesday Special - Only £5 OTD bar open until midnight

RYSE

With lyrics fuelled from obsessions with the darker side of modern technology, to the class divide and spiritual existence, RYSE write from the heart and head, directly to their fans.

Since forming the band has performed across the UK and throughout the capital, including dates at some of the South-East’s most iconic venues (such as London’s The Fiddler’s Elbow, O2 Academy Islington, and Guildford’s Boileroom). 

After signing to 'Little Bear Records', (an independent record label co-founded by RYSE's Ricky Cooksie) 2018 will see the band playing shows nationwide, alongside radio appearances, interviews and further single releases, making sure they are one to watch in the months ahead.

Hailing from Nottingham, The Mocking Jays are a five-piece pop-rock band that have effortlessly created a deft balance of pop sensibility and rock and roll swagger that, since forming in 2014, has allowed them to rapidly make a name for themselves, both within their native East Midlands, and across the UK.

Though crucial early support from the likes of 6Music and BBC Introducing, as well as festival appearances at the likes of Y-Not, have done nothing to hamper the band’s reputation, it’s largely down to the inherent appeal of their own brand of idiosyncratic indie-pop.

Falling somewhere in between the ballsy freneticism of bands like Kasabian and the pop pomp of Clean Bandit, it’s a dichotomy both accessible and irresistible and best summed up in the band’s own accurate words as Sexy, Funky, Dirty, Pop.

THE MOTOWN JAM  -  The Motor City Revue (House Band) playing classic Motown, Soul and Stax + DJ's

DOG RACE

South London 4-piece band Dog Race make indie music infused with electronic production elements. Don't miss them performing

BONDS are a 3-piece post punk band from the UK South Coast. Our songs are short, fast and hooky with a post punk sound. Imagine The Pixies songs played by The Cure, and you’re not far off.


Future West is the musical brainchild of Irish/London based multi-instrumentalist/producer Francis Watters. Since conceiving the project in 2016 Francis has self-recorded and released 2017’s debut record “Holy Shit… Here Come The Future West” as well as co-recording/engineering/mixing the very limited 7’ vinyl run of 2016’s “Call Me stupid” and 2018’s “Radio Town”. After recently relocating to London and turning Future West into a solo venture, Francis has gifted the project with two very diverse live shows. The first being a completely stripped back powerful, emotive acoustic set full of dynamic twists and turns and the second being a more electronic/pop outing. Brandishing an acoustic guitar and synth whilst accompanied with a speaker full of beats, loops & samples, Francis delivers to you, his own unique brand of dark/chill/bedroom pop via “Future West”.

Connah Evans is an upbeat solo pop act, who crafts music with a unique blend of heart felt lyrics and upbeat memorable melodies. Connah is a multi instrumentalist playing drums, guitar, piano and even the didgeridoo. His productions sparkle, putting his incredibly moreish and honest songs, centre stage.

The Summer of 2016 saw Connah playing some amazing Festivals with the BBC, including Liverpool Sound City, Truck Festival and Festival No. 6 to name just a few. 

“Connah shows off an up-beat sound more akin to Circa Waves or The 1975” - Virtuoso Sounds

“Hyperactive and effortlessly catchy!” - Charlie Ashcroft, Amazing Radio

“It’s impossible to not like that" - Adam Walton, BBC Introducing Wales

INKA LINDA

Inka Linda is an intuitive guide, poet and speaker, and host of Restless Future-an international creative community open mic event she co-founded to encourage people from all walks of life to celebrate the power of creative vulnerability. Born to a Malawian/Zambian mother and Finnish father yet having lived in the Philippines and Canada, her upbringing inspires her work to reflect humanity's spiritual interconnectedness and the massive shift in consciousness our planet is currently experiencing. In addition to her community work and art, she is also an advocate for Blood Love, a movement to counter-act widespread stigma against female menstruation and promote the universal ancient powers of the womb.



REALI-T

Making music since the age of 15, Reali-T moved from London to the North East for university and quickly made a name for himself as one of the best rappers in the region. Famed for his quick witted, tongue-in-cheek lyricism that delivers poignant messages with a side of humorous punchlines, Reali-T’s style draws inspiration from the golden era of hip-hop – reminiscent of heralded MCs like Biggie Smalls, Tupac, NAS and Eminem.

Reali-T’s momentum shows no sign of stopping in 2019, after recently performing at his O2 Academy headline show in Newcastle on 28th September 2018. Reali-T is without doubt one of the hottest artists in the North East right now, soon to be one of the hottest in the UK.

Holispark in London + guests One Last Daybreak & Temporal Comet

DON’T MISS THIS ONE!

HOLISPARK
Since 2015, Holispark is the burning spark, the "Sacred Fire" that unites us, 5 musiciens from Lille, North France: Manon, Roch, Max, Kévin & Nico in an alternative rock band; into a family.

Just out of the GOLDEN GARDEN TOUR, an intense tour of more than 50 dates that propelled us through the most prestigious music venues of Hauts-de-France (The Pierre Mauroy Stadium, The Zenith of Lille) through Belgium and the Netherlands, we continue to defend ever further our new album 'SONIC BLOOM' released 2 February 2018. We will take the road in February 2019 across Europe and the United Kingdom for the longest and most ambitious tour that we have undertaken so far!
See you in London !!

TEMPORAL COMET
Temporal Comet is a mix of indie synthwave, with dark, atmospheric synths and vocal loops. The lyrics are intriguing and the visuals powerful. Poignant and potent songs for 2019... and beyond.

People often correctly identify these influences - Bowie, Portishead, the XX, Talking Heads. Of course there are many more!

ONE LAST DAYBREAK
"This band stumbled into Emo Nite not knowing what emo was and came out like 'Hey, we should start a band!'" - The State of the Scene.
