The Howl & The Hum – Fri 19 Feb

The Howl & The Hum are an essential live act, having appeared at The Great Escape and SXSW, as well as selling-out The Scala in London. Their debut LP “Human Contact” is full of songs drawn from across the emotional spectrum, where wonderful lyrics and ambitious songwriting combine with both musical restraint and epic, horizon-sized choruses to create a wonderful debut record. It has been produced by Jolyon Thomas (Royal Blood, Slaves, U2) and recorded at Big Jelly Studios in Kent. Get tickets for their 2021 headline show here.

Pokey LaFarge – Wed 21 Apr

Pokey LaFarge is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, recording artist, poet and actor living in Los Angeles. Raised on a healthy diet of blues, bluegrass, ragtime, Western swing and old- time country, the Illinois native writes timeless, multi-hued songs that reflect his refined good taste, as well as the wide variety of influences and rhythms he’s absorbed over a decade-plus spent traveling and performing around the globe. Grab a ticket for his upcoming show at Islington Assembly Hall here.

Indigo Girls – Wed 19 Aug

The Indigo Girls are among the most enduring musical outfits to emerge from the late ‘80s women singer/songwriter scene and to a lesser degree the later iteration of the Athens, Georgia scene that birthed R.E.M., Love Tractor, and Widespread Panic. On their 16th studio album, Indigo Girls tell their origin story. They have reunited with their strongest backing band to date to create Look Long – a stirring and eclectic collection of songs that finds the duo of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers chronicling their personal upbringings with more specificity and focus than they have on any previous song-cycle. They return to London for two special shows in August, book your tickets here.
