Sam Brookes At The Borderline
DHP Family presents: Sam Brookes London based songsmith Sam Brookes is one of the UK alt-folks best kept secrets. His acclaimed 2014 album Kairos was tipped by The Independent for a Mercury Prize nomination, received support from the likes of Dermot OLeary on BBC Radio 2 and granted Sam the opportunity to perform at Live In Hyde Park. Sam is currently writing and recording new material for a forthcoming album and will be performing at only a handful of shows in 2017 to road test new material and perform current favourites. Sams singing career began at an early age, filling the rafters of Her Majesty the Queens private chapel, as a chorister. Now his unmistakable, soaring vocal combined with crafty arrangements, deft guitar-playing and arresting lyrics delivers an aural patchwork that has been positively likened to Wild Beasts, Bon Iver, Nick Drake and Tim Buckley. Sam is also the featured vocalist on the Basement Jaxx single What A Difference Your Love Makes and has collaborated and toured with the likes of Lucy Rose and Newton Faulkner. In 2017, Sam will return with new material, starting with a new single in March and a UK tour in April/May. www.sam-brookes.com www.facebook.com/sambrookesmusic Tickets on sale now via Ticketweb, Alt Tickets, See Tickets + more!

Hannah Lou Clark In Brighton + Ella & Realms
Love Thy Neighbour Presents.... HANNAH LOU CLARK Hannah Lou Clark has announced her brand new EP The Heart And All Its Sin will be released through Quatre Femmes Records / PIAS on March 24th. Hannah has also unveiled the first single, Dont Sweat It, which was premiered on Huw Stephens BBC Radio 1 show. The Heart And All Its Sin has been mixed and co-produced by Tarek Musa from Spring King and is a collection of songs exploring the complexities of love and loss. Hannah has laid her soul bare in these songs in a way that others would never do.Dont Sweat It bravely addresses the yearnings of the heart in times of turmoil; with lines like champagne takes the edge off me she can see that whilst giving into our vices cant help the heart heal, it can be a welcome distraction. Recorded in Urchin Studios, The Heart And All Its Sin, focus has been on giving space to the guitar, creating emotion and drama by exercising restraint. With the encouragement of Tarek and appreciation of artists such as Steve Reich, Hannah has also developed the drum machine side of things, creating her own loops from a variety of recorded sounds. The Heart And All Its Sin points to a painful understanding of what drives and degrades real love. Having shared stages in 2016 with the likes of Ezra Furman, Thurston Moore and Gaz Coombes as well as headlining her own tours, Hannah Lou Clark is excited to announce details of her 2017 tour. PLUS SUPPORT ELLA - Amsterdam\'s ELLA has a flair for mixing the dark cavernous ambient moods and quixotic pop levity that is often sparked by unconventional angles and ideas. http://www.ellabyebye.com/ REALMS - Realms offer an ethereal awakening to their sound, poetic and loud with an angelic voice cutting through.

Be Nothing pres Hand Habits plus special guests tba Meg Duffy, aka Hand Habits, is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Upstate New York. She has been putting her time in on the road and in the studio over the past two years with pacific northwest band Mega Bog, and the Kevin Morby Band, making an impression on everyone she comes across with her natural charisma and uncharted talent as a multi-instrumentalist. But letWildly Idle (Humble Before The Void) be her open invitation to the world to step inside and take a much deeper look into who Duffy actually is. Tracked in an Upstate New York living room, then finished in her current home in Los Angeles it is appropriate that this album was recorded by Meg herself for Meg, who has an acute ear for detail, has touched every corner, has seen every vision til its end. Because of this, Wildly Idle feels incredibly intimate, like a secret between her and the listener. It hits soft, like warm water, and before you know it it is all around you a bath, and Megs whisper has made its way inside you. Like many bedroom-debuts before it (The Microphones, Jessica Pratt, Little Wings, Grouper) let this be the first of many to come, for Meg has music in her touch and this is only the beginning. But let us not look to the future now, but instead stand alongside her, our trust in her will, both humble before the void, with her first chorus as the mission statement; hold you like a flower, hold you like an hour glass.- Kevin Morby Sign up for the mailing list: eepurl.com/swSLX Upcoming Be Nothing Shows Porridge Radio The Shacklewell Arms 19 Mar Our Girl The Waiting Room 22 Mar LVL UP Green Door Store 5 Apr Elvis Depressedly + TV Girl The Joker 23 Apr Hoops Green Door Store 9 May Ryley Walker Komedia 29 May TOPS The Joker 5 Jun

Jamie Lenman - Thekla - 29.04.17
JAMIE LENMAN www.jamielenman.com Jamie Lenman is best known as the singer, guitarist and songwriter for underground heroes Reuben, who toured and released relentlessly for most of the noughties. Their combination of brutal riffs, heartfelt melodies and frank, intelligent lyrics, together with their explosive live shows and innovative promo videos won them a hard core of dedicated fans and respect amongst peers and critics alike. After a string of independent singles, regularly voted top of the MTV2 charts, the band released two albums with Xtra Mile (Frank Turner, Future Of The Left, Against Me!) and joined bands like Biffy Clyro, Fightstar and Billy Talent on tours around the UK and Europe. Upon their return, they founded their own label, Hideous Records, through which they released a live DVD documentary and their third, critically acclaimed album, In Nothing We Trust. Eventually, the pressure of being in the band as well as running their own label and working full time jobs became too much, and they called it a day in 2008, releasing a posthumous rarities collection through Xtra Mile in 2009. Now, after an absence of five years, Jamie Lenman returns to the UK music scene with his colossal double album Muscle Memory, a twenty three-track behemoth ready to bend the mind of the willing listener. Recorded over two years with INWT producer Sean Genockey, Muscle Memory splits the trademark Reuben sound in two, with one disc focussing on melody and other focussing on riffery. Lenman, who has spent his time since the end of the band working as a professional illustrator, has brought all his skills to bear on the lavish artwork accompanying the record, released through Xtra Mile the week Lenman turned 31.

Eddi Reader + Adam Holmes Tuesday 2nd May 2017 Doors 19:30 14+ show ----- Eddi Reader grew up in Glasgow and Irvine, Scotland and it was in those towns that she learned to use music as a vehicle for communicating with others through busking and performing at the local folk clubs. In the early 1980s, Eddi travelled around Europe with circus and performance artists before moving to London where she quickly became a sought after session vocalist. She famously harmonized with Annie Lennox touring with the Eurythmics, after her time with successful punk outfit Gang of Four. It was the short-lived but warmly remembered Fairground Attraction that really brought her into the limelight and to the attention of a much wider audience. The single Perfect and parent album First of a Million Kisses both topped the British charts. However, it was her subsequent albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. Her unerring instinct for fine material, whether self penned, collaborative or a carefully chosen cover version resulted in Mirmama (1992), Eddi Reader (1994), Candyfloss & Medicine (1996), Angels & Electricity (1998), Simple Soul (2001) Through these years Eddi based herself in London, but in 2001 she decided to move home to Glasgow where she recorded the classic Songs Of Robert Burns album released to international acclaim in 2003. Awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to singing, she took her Burns songs on tour all over the world and found connections to the bard everywhere from Kolkata, India to Sydney, Australia. In 2006 she released Peacetime on Rough Trade Records featuring the finest traditional players in the United Kingdom and produced by Folk Musician of The Year, John McCusker. Constant touring with her band has created a magical organic chemistry between Eddi and her players and the results of this relationship can be found on her most recent release. Love Is The Way, Eddi Readers seventh solo album, was released in March 2009 on Rough Trade Records. Produced by Eddi herself, it is her best work so far. Recorded in a matter of days with her band in Glasgow, the record has captured the award winning songstress in her finest form. Songs written with her long time writing partner Boo Hewerdine, songs written with her life partner John Douglas (The Trashcan Sinatras) and a song from the magical Irish singer/songwriter Declan ORourke as well as a rare Brian Wilson composition, an Eddi/Fleetwood Mac mash up, and a wonderful song from Dublin songwriter Jack Maher. 2010 saw Eddi play sold out shows promoting Love Is The Way all over the world. It also brought Eddis Hollywood movie debut as she featured in Richard Linklaters, Me And Orson Welles with Zak Efron and Clare Danes. Eddi plays a chanteuse in the movie and is featured singing Lets Pretend That Theres A Moon with the Jools Holland Orchestra. The original soundtrack features another two performances from Eddi. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings joyous life to all forms of song. Her taste in co-writers, writers, songs and players is impeccable and anything with her name on it is guaranteed musical treasure. Whilst the perfection of her technique is widely acknowledged, what sets Reader apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance; her ability not only to move the listener but to connect her experience to that of her audience. Her passion and instinct move people in a way reminiscent of those who have influenced her work. Her rare blend of meltingly true vocals and towering romanticism combine with an astute and pragmatic nature to make her a unique and powerful figure in contemporary British music. She has effortlessly developed into one of popular musics most thrilling and affecting performers.
