Hair of the Dog featuring: Kev Gray & The Gravy Train + Morganway + Nele Needs a Holiday + Alex Lozano + Jasmine Beth
An eclectic line up of alt and indie, where guitars give way to synths and synths give way to the stripped back simplicity of a lone acoustic.
Exciting and varied come in and see some of the UK (and beyond's) newest artists.
Tonight in the Basement Bar:
Kev Gray & The Gravy Train
Formed in Tokyo in late 2008, The Gravy Train are a multi-culti live outfit from Britain, Canada, Japan and the US. A feature band during "UK-Japan Year 2008", The Gravy Train quickly established themselves as a top local act by securing a sellout Saturday night at the iconic rockabilly hangout, Crocodile Club, in Shibuya with their regular UK-Japan Night.
The band have a tour of the US planned in summer 2017 in collaboration with a new video for the yoga-inspired bossa nova track, ‘Dirty Downward Dog’ and a conservation commissioned song about "finning" called The Last Shark. Dates are yet to be announced.
In terms of live performance, songwriting, groove, versatility and vocal quality, we believe The Gravy Train has the most to offer to any live audience.
"Morganway deliver beautiful harmonies that
bring alt-country right to the forefront of the
americana and country scene."
- Maverick Magazine
Morganway’s fiery brand of alt-country is all driving riffs, charismatic five-part harmonies, emotional songwriting and compelling live performances. Straight out of North Norfolk’s rural outback, the five-piece was started by twins Callum (acoustic guitar, lead vocals) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar), and features Yve Mary B (lead vocals), Matt Brocklehurst (keyboard) and Simon Tinmouth (drums).
The band’s distinctive Americana glow wears its heart on music that’s raw, melodic, sincere, full of energy and yearning for the open road.
Nele Needs a Holiday
Nele Needs A Holiday is a London-based Belgian princess singing about the "tragedies of daily life". Songs like "I Love You But I Google Other People" or "I Really Wish I Was A Bitch".
"alex lozano plays folk and blues ditties"
Jasmine's passion for music started with studying classical piano at the age of nine and spending hours lost in her parents' vinyl collection. As a teenager, she developed an eclectic range of tastes, listening to everything, from Chopin to the Bill Evans Trio to the great singer-songwriters of the '60s and '70s - Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Tom Waits and James Taylor.
However, it was not until years later, while living in South London, that she picked up the guitar and started to sing. Within eight months, she played her first gig at an underground record store, and she hasn't looked back since.
Jasmine's singing and songwriting have gained increasing critical and public attention and have been recognised through several awards. In 2014, she was a finalist in the Australian Songwriting Competition. In 2010, she won Second Prize in both the Sydney Singer-Songwriter Competition and the Kommotion Singer-Songwriter Contest. In 2009, she won the Bermagui Seaside Music Competition and was invited to record at Pirate Studios. She was also a semi-finalist in the 2009 U.K. Songwriting Competition.
Jasmine released her eponymous debut EP in early 2012 with launch gigs at The Basement, Sydney and The Wesley Anne, Melbourne, and an extensive regional tour.
Since then, she's toured the UK and Europe twice, and has started to make her presence known on the festival circuit, with appearances at the Illawarra Folk Festival, the Wingham Acoustic Festival, the Northern Beaches Music Festival, the Bonnie Doon Festival, the Pfeiffer Wines Festival and others.
