Dannielle Lewis / Blue Milk / Rosie Nimo / Emma Jane / Davy Cowan
Dannielle Lewis Thurs 21st Jan 2021
From the West coast of Wales, Danielle Lewis emerges with a delicate blend of ethereal folk guided by a saintly soundscape of voice. Her writing is raw yet complex but
it’s her voice that has a hugely powerful yet haunting grace. Danielle’s EP ‘ Live Forever ‘ released in 2018 was a bold swerve in direction but one that strengthened her authenticity. Following the release, Cian Ciaran of Super Furry Animals remixed the title track of the EP. Danielle concluded the year with a UK tour.
On March 8th 2019 Danielle proudly announced her empowering new single ‘ A Woman Like You ‘. Expanding on her indie folk roots, ‘ AWLY ‘ is reminiscent of a tender Karen Carpenter vocal coupled with a timeless and ethereal dream pop feel.
Her latest singles ‘ Life of Worth ‘ and ‘ Flower ‘ delve into new territory leaving her audience suspended with anticipation.
Blue Milk Thurs 21st Jan. 2021
Blue Milk /Roo Geddes & Neil Sutcliffe /Mairi McGillivray /Janice Burns & Jon Doran /Emma Jane / Roswell – Zoё Wren & Jasmine Watkiss.
Glasgow-based Blue Milk are a one-of-a-kind roots group harking back to traditional turn-of-the-century Delta Blues and 60’s – 70’s electric Blues Rock.
Taking its name from the classic Captain Beefheart album Safe As Milk, Blue Milk are heavily influenced by the slide guitar style of Ry Cooder and inspired by Blues legends such as Muddy Waters, Junior Kimborough and Lightnin Hopkins.
The band deliver a brand of Blues which is entirely their own. The dynamic 4-piece boasts dirty, electric slide guitar and rousing melodies from Jonny Mac (guitar, vocals) the wailing howl of Leo S. Glaister’s harmonica, powerfully resonant undertones from Ike Malinki (bass guitar, backing vocals) and infectious grooves from Taylor Whyte (drums, backing vocals).
Blue Milk deliver deeply compelling Blues, charged with intense sincerity and relentless energy. As modern bluesmen, they channel the raw spirit of Blues in its most authentic form, whilst simultaneously bringing a driven twist to the genre.
