About this Event

Alex Lipinski

“Played and sung with such vigour and conviction it just sweeps you up and carries you along” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

“Lipinski comes across like a star in waiting – one who possesses immense patience with the powers that be – who lets his voice & playing speak for themselves” – Huffington Post

“A killer album from Alex. You need this” (Rough Trade)

The first thing that hits you is the voice. Alex Lipinski’s caressing sympathy, full-throated resentment, and the raw rockabilly excitement of earliest Elvis have grabbed unwary listeners from the West Country to Krakow, Berlin and New York, since he first left Somerset to become a crucial habitué of Soho’s legendary, lost 12-Bar Club. He has followed in the footsteps of his hero Dylan to write in the Chelsea Hotel, and sung songs in the home of an admiring Liam Gallagher, who is a firm champion.

A brief tenure heading up Phoneys & The Freaks with Oasis’s Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs brought forth an EP, festival appearances and touring in the U.S and Italy. Lipinski’s latest album ‘ALEX’ was recorded and produced in Berlin by Anton Newcombe (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) and released on Anton’s ‘A’ Recordings label. Hailed by Newcombe as, “a young man worth my time and efforts. I appreciate his endless hard work and do it yourself ethics. Make no mistake, these songs have all the qualities of timeless music.”

Lipinski’s potential was obvious when he arrived with his guitar in Soho a decade ago. Relentless graft and restless experience see that potential now being fulfilled.

Matt Owens

British born singer-songwriter and musician Matt Owens first came to prominence as a founder member of indie-folk band Noah and the Whale. Releasing four albums, Noah and the Whale achieved huge success in the UK and overseas, selling over one million albums in the UK alone.

The band toured the world between 2006 and 2015, playing hundreds of festivals, including Austin City Limits, Fuji Rocks and Lollapalooza, as well as touring with the likes of Arcade Fire, Bahamas, and Laura Marling.

In 2016 Matt formed the band Little Mammoths, releasing the critically acclaimed debut album Phantom Dreams. The band tours the UK and Ireland on a regular basis, and was invited to play an unprecedented 6 sets at the 2017 Glastonbury Festival.

2019 will see the release of Matt’s debut solo album. It is an album that oozes Americana with its campfire storytelling told mainly on acoustic guitar and piano, reflecting the songwriting skills of some of Matt’s favourite artists Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell and Warren Zevon.

The new record, produced by Nigel Stonier and featuring Michael Blair (Tom Waits), Thea Gilmore, Carleigh Aikins (Bahamas) and Robert Vincent, has received critical acclaim upon it's release earlier this year.
