About this Event

This month...

____

Kete Bowers

Kete Bowers is a singer / songwriter born in Liverpool. His music crosses many genres from Rock, Folk, Americana and Blues. Kete's new critically acclaimed album Paper Ships was recorded in Toronto, Canada in September 2018 at The Cowboy Junkies Studio "The Hanger" produced by Michael Timmins and mastered by Peter J Moore.

"Like Cohen before him, Bowers is magnificent proof that melancholy and torment can produce great music and resonant lyrics, there may be ghosts behind us but Paper Ships encourages us to take their hands and walk with them towards the light." Mike Davies, folking.com

"Listening to Bowers' rich voice you'd swear he was as Texan as Guy Clark or Townes Van Zandt. Paper Ships is a classic slice of Americana". Uncut Magazine 2019. ******

Neal Hoffmann

“It’s a long time since I have heard a set of songs I wanted to hear over and over again, but this is such a set” Judy Dyble

“A real find on this stunning debut solo album…a breath of fresh air…Crosby, Stills & Nash sprang to mind…one of the very best voices you’ve not yet heard. Rectify that real soon” ★★★★★ MAVERICK

“Hoffmann is a superb singer/writer and producer…in terms of songs a Jimmy Webb for today” FOLKING

“Lyrically sophisticated … the supremely atmospheric Maybe Arizona draws you nicely in…” SOUND ON SOUND

“Neal Hoffmann bursts onto the singer-songwriter radar…highly original and lusciously arranged compositions…delivered with genre-defying originality” Fatea Magazine

Iago Banet

Iago Banet was born in Galicia in the north-west of Spain. At the age of seventeen, having been a music-addict for many years, he found a classical guitar at home and taught himself chords. That year, Banet was given his first electric guitar. Shortly after, he began to form bands with friends and play gigs.

In 2014, Banet moved to London in search of new avenues, challenges and projects to develop his career. He formed the rockabilly band The Boo-Hoos, and recorded an EP which was the Spotlight on September 2015’s issue of Blues Magazine. The band performed at venues and festivals across the UK. He has also played as session musician on projects including Old Street Blues (Blues) and Karen Grace (Folk), JFK Blue (Rock) with which he has recorded two albums, Rough Round the Edges and Out of the Blue, amongst others.

Banet is currently playing with Deep Blue Sea with which has recorded a live album Live it up, which was featured in both Blues in Britain and Blues Matters. They are currently recording a new studio album.

In addition to this, Banet is building his project as a solo instrumentalist, inspired by the work of Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel, and he has just recorded his first album A Sunset Wine, which he is currently showcasing at venues across the UK.
