About this Event

Some wonderful story tellers for this gig...

____

William Poyer

Driving Americana from a Welshman via Mexico. William Poyer is a singer/songwriter with a genuine attention to the craft. William left his native UK in 2013 on a journey of discovery, looking to hone a sound that was unique to him. Three years of living in Mexico helped him find the the sound he was searching for and during this period he developed the stunning collection of songs that would go on to become his debut album.

William's songs have been described as a blend of real life storytelling with an intimate folk sensibility, driven by strong rhythms and melodic hooks. The sound of Americana from a boy from Wales via Mexico. Grounded by real life experiences and melodic truths .

Philip Marino

Raised in a cornfield-surrounded suburb of Chicago, Illinois, Philip Marino brings the Midwestern values of honesty, authenticity, and persistence to his music and, he hopes, to his life. Influenced at a young age by the likes of John Mellencamp, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, the music Marino makes today is a mix of storytelling and soul-searching.

Currently based in Essex, England, Marino has played shows on many well-known stages from London to Norwich (and many places in between) since 2011 (e.g., The Islington, Proud Camden, The Harrison, The Monarch, Colchester Arts Centre, Hertford Corn Exchange, Live at Little Rabbit Barn, Cambridge Folk Club, John Peel Centre for Creative Arts, Ipswich Music Day). His songs have been played on radio stations around the world, including BBC radio throughout the United Kingdom. On his 3rd CD (‘Days Like These’ - released in 2017) Marino worked with platinum-selling producer and singer-songwriter Simone Felice (the producer for The Lumineers, Vance Joy, and Bat For Lashes) and with James Felice from the well-known American folk band The Felice Brothers.

“Marino continues to show just why he's bubbling on the edge of a commercial breakthrough.” - Maverick Magazine

“A wonderfully cultured singer-songwriter, the likes of whom we need to lend more support. 8 out of 10.” - AmericanaUK

“Strong earthy vocals, with a searingly passionate approach to his austere soul searching songs. Honest music for dishonest times.” - Acoustic Magazine

Matthew Shepherd

Hailed as one of the most exciting new singer-songwriters on the acoustic music scene, Matthew Shepherd is a 24 year-old singer-songwriter who has been delighting audiences in London, Essex and beyond with his collection of self penned songs. His debut studio album ‘Top of the tree’ was released in June 2015 and only took a day for the album to break into the iTunes Top 100 Singer/Songwriter Album Chart. His songs cover the happiness and heartbreak of love, with his warm, intimate and delicate style.

In 2016, Matthew released an Acoustic EP entitled ‘The Sea’, which reached the Acoustic Magazine’s Top 10 Best New Music of September 2016. Matthew also embarked on an extensive national tour which included dates at Ronnie Scott’s and 3 dates on the Isle of Wight.

With club and concert performances plus 2 European tours under his belt, Matthew released his second studio album ‘Waiting Up At Night’ in July 2018 – warm, gentle and affecting folk music from the heart.
