BIRMINGHAM SHOW ANNOUNCED - SAT 16TH JUNE w/ CHARLOTTE CARPENTER

Charlotte Carpenter is the perfect embodiment of the blues; out there, doing it on her own, taking her music and stories to the people across the UK and Europe, managing her own affairs, choosing her own destiny. This isn’t some ‘strong woman’ cliché, this is a nominative determinism; place a piece of wood in her hand and she will use it to craft something of value to the world around her.

Self-releasing her 4th EP  ‘Shelter’ and on vinyl for the very first time, it’s dynamic and cinematic scope and vision was one of her best creations yet. Alongside blues stomper “Fire” which landed a TV sync on Sky One and ran for a total 6 weeks on the Virgin Radio playlist, Charlotte is winning acclaim from the likes of Louder Than War, Total Guitar, NME, Classic Rock alongside radio play BBC1, BBC 2 & 6 Music.

She has toured extensively across the UK and Europe with the likes of Marika HackmanAlessi’s Ark, George Ezra, Jarrod Dickenson and Hunter Hayes and for 2018 she’s heading out to Europe and USA to coincide with a series of single releases.

“a distinctly different kind of singer/songwriter sound, and one that makes for an enthralling listen.” Best Fit

“Charlotte Carpenter is a storyteller, a young artist capable of applying an enormous impact.” CLASH

“sliding guitar licks, percussive thumps and Carpenter’s own fiery, soulful vocals.” NME

“An Independent artist to the core, Charlotte’s star is rising” TOTAL GUITAR

 

 

BIRMINGHAM SHOW WITH FENNE LILY ANNOUNCED

Matt Millard announces home show at Birmingham's The Cuban Embassy on Mon 16th April supporting Fenne Lily as part of her 'On Hold' Album release tour. 

FENNE LILY

Not many young artists can count up a massive 20 million+ Spotify streams off the back of the first song they’ve ever written, but then again, not many young artists are Fenne Lily. Raised in the wilds of rural Dorset, the 20-year-old talent first picked up the guitar aged fifteen and quickly found she was a natural.

Just one year later and she’d written the delicate but powerful ‘Top To Toe’, which deftly tackled social anxiety over softly picked guitar; a song about bleak adolescence that almost everyone could relate to. Self-released, it saw the young unknown attract global attention for her sublime songwriting ability and sharp emotional intelligence, as well as her gifted way with melody. British fashion house Burberry came knocking on her door and asked her to perform for them in Paris, thanks to the song’s subtle channelling of Laura Marling, as well as the swooning sound of Angel OlsenSharon Van Etten and underground 1960s psychedelic greats like Linda Perhacs.

Fenne’s sound was elegant, addictive and blowing up the hype machine. Now, though, she’s gearing up to release her debut album and proving she’s much more than your typical acoustic songwriter.
