HACKNEY WONDERLAND 2017 REVUE (French traduction in comments)

 

Comment on Facebook

"Comme le veut le talent, BLESS. accélère le rythme et apporte une dimension de fête au festival Wonderland. Les cinq musiciens mélangent le son ska et punk d'une superbe manière. Le titre '' Halloween '' fait danser tout le monde tout en enveloppant la salle de l'atmosphère si spécifique a cette fin de mois d'octobre. C'est punchy et le rythme se renouvelle constamment, faisant bouger la foule et le groupe. Ce n'est certes pas la dernière fois que nous entendrons verrons BLESS., une surprise extrêmement agréable avec une vraie originalité. Même leur énergie sur scène est à la fois disparate et harmonieuse sous l'impulsion d'un chanteur qui pourrait être le cousin assagi d'Iggy Pop. A écouter absolument aussi, "Loser "et" Karaoke King ". Vous y prendrez une belle dose d'humour et de musique."

Great review, both in french and english!

New Moon: A Night of New Music

New Moon: A Night of New Music

Oct 30, 7:30pm - Oct 30, 11:00pm

The Half Moon Putney
93 Lower Richmond Road
London,  SW15 1EU Map

A night of new music and discovery. Singer-songwriters, bands, poets, performance artists...

Only £2.50 entry. Food served until 10pm. Doors open 7:30pm.

Hosted by Signature Brew

Here is our Line-Up:

Damon Coles

Influenced mainly from bands of the late 1960's; Damon's music would fall under a rock/pop/blues genre. As well as upbeat rock,
he also writes more mellow songs and a few ballads. Artists of today comparable would be Paolo Nutini, Jack Savoretti & maybe a touch of Ed Sheeran on a few numbers. With have a deep affection for the blues, and though his music is not in that genre there
is an undercurrent of blues in all that he writes.

His new single "She Was a Woman" has just been released with a full band recording and is available on Spotify, AppleMusic
& iTunes.

Ember Swift

Ember Swift is a Canadian musician and songwriter who has released 12 albums and 1 DVD project since 1996 through her own independent label “Few’ll Ignite Sound.” Her most recent album "Sticks & Stones" (2017) is a collection of work in three categories: Songs for Adults; Songs for Kids; and finally Songs for Adults w/ Kids, a community she feels deserves some separate recognition! This new body of work culminated over the past five years since becoming a mother of two in 2012 and 2013, respectively.

This is Ember's third release since moving to Beijing in 2008 and it demonstrates how music can serve as a bridge between the two divergent cultures: East and West. Fluent in Mandarin and French, Ember sings in all three languages (including English). With the inclusion of the Chinese traditional instrument (erhu) alongside of Western contemporary instruments, the performance and sound are both entertaining and unique. Couple this with Ember's signature elastic-jazz vocals, eclectic music styles, and poignant, astute lyrics, and this "folk" artist becomes hard to categorize but impossible to forget.

Styles on this album include jazz, folk, gypsy, rock, R&B, electronic, pop, folk and even Klezmer. She will be performing solo in London, and travelling with copies of her most recent few releases.

Jean Marlow

Isabel is a singer-songwriter, who has been based in New York City for the past four years. Her style of music is soul-indie pop and classic rock music. Isabel tries to present her love for soul into my music, particularly because the genre highlights so much emotion. She wants her listeners to enter into a world that she's created, social norms transitioning into personal feelings and observations.
She dropped her EP 'Spin' earlier this year and is working on making new music now that she is back in her home city, London.

BLESS.

BLESS. is a project formed from the remains of London indie scene favourites, The Supernovas and Dirty Nelly.

Their distinct sound hails influences that range from 90s Britpop, to soul, ska, 60s rock and psychedelia. Much less wise than their well-ironed shirts might let you believe, the Londoners swing a pop and punk energy to the image of the explosive Irish singer Joei Silvester. For indie enthusiasts, he jokingly describes their music: “It’s like if Dr Feelgood and the Dexys Midnight Runners had a fight, which was refereed by The Specials and judged by The Clash.” Supported by the Joe Strummer Foundation, the Fab Five made their debut in the UK in 2015 with the EP « Music Comes First » and performed on numerous stages, from Glastonbury 2016 to the 100 Club of London’s West End. Their track « Daddy Didn’t Make It as a Rockstar » was even featured in the official Glastonbury program and dubbed a « classic of our time » The quintet just released their new stalker-rock creeper single « Easy Lover », coinciding with a new tour and support show at the Roundhouse with Frank Turner.

Garden Party

Garden party is a brand new indie/rock outfit comprised of London uni students.

After releasing an EP with 4 originals in 2017, garden party went on to win their university battle bands - recieving invites to perform at their university festivals and headlined at their summer ball.
They will be showcasing a brand new track at their half moon debut.

The band's first album, 'Time For Change' is available on iTunes and and shows the band's diverse range of influences from mod, ska, punk, rock and blues. Their amazing EP 'Hits The Sky' was released in February 2014 to critical acclaim and has won the 'Best EP for 2014' from Galaxy Entertainment and a new EP, 'In A Daze' was released in October 2015 to excellent reviews, and in 2016 'Changes' featured new vocalist Chris. 2017 will bring at least one album's worth of material and some exciting news.
