Time Out Rising Stars: Antigoni + Natalie Shay + Harry Pane + The Rews + Flight Brigade + Nuala Bennett-Wilford at The Jazz Cafe

Time Out Rising Stars W/ Antigoni + Natalie Shay + Harry Pane + The Rews + Flight Brigade + Nuala Bennett-Wilford

As an up and coming singer and songwriter with a natural writing talent, Antigoni Buxton’s deep gravelly voice is recognizable within seconds of hearing it and impossible not to be impressed by. So, get ready to be wowed by her wonderful, modern approach to blues and soul with vocals well beyond her young age of 19.

Natalie Shay 
Singer/songwriter Natalie Shay may be only 17 but she’s no stranger to playing venues across London (having played at The Roundhouse, The 100 club, and Hyde Park) or sharing the stage with the Sex Pistols. As a two-time winner of the ‘Mayor of London, Gigs: Big Busk’ competition, winner of ‘Open Mic UK’ and of ‘The Guardian Future8 2014 Music Award’, to name but a few, she also knows how to pick up an award or two. Once you hear her perform her folk-pop songs, you’ll understand why.
Harry Pane
As a folk/blues singer/songwriter with a soulful and emotive voice, Harry Pane is influenced by John Martyn, Damien Rice, Bob Dylan and Xavier Rudd. Championed by BBC Introducing London and Amazing Radio, he is one to look out for. Get ready for stories that touch close to the heart, tumbling guitar riffs, slide-guitar and a ‘stomping’ pulse.
The Rews
Creating a genuine buzz on the UK/Ireland music scene following the release of their debut single ‘Can You Feel It’, songstress Shauna Tohill and beat-maker Collette Williams are a high-energy London-based alternative pop/rock female duo to keep your eye on. Separately the girls are hugely talented (Shauna has just spent the last 18 months touring as guest vocalist with Snow Patrol, while Collette can be seen drumming in the video for Gabrielle Aplin’s current hit single ‘Sweet Nothing’), but together they are a match made in heaven!
Flight Brigade
Brought together by their musical parents, Ollie, Miriam and Dorry have gone on to produce one of Britain’s most exciting bands that has won plaudits across the industry for its classic songwriting, blend of musical styles and electric live performances. These guys might have an electro/rock underpinning, but with a synthesizer and strings in the mix they and their music are a refreshing eclectic mix unlike any other band.
Nuala Bennett-Wilford
From performing gritty soul/rock belters and poppy sing-a-long tunes to softer blues and folk numbers, the lyrical content of Nuala Bennett-Wilford’s songs are always of the utmost importance. Performing one song at this event, she will, as usual, be accompanied by nothing but her guitar and a whole load of emotion.
