Saturday 21st September 2019
Cambridge 4-piece SAFFRA blend their favourite pop and R&B influences with the sounds of jazz and neo-soul. Blending inspiration from Moonchild, Blue Lab Beats, Yussef Kamaal, old school hip hop and the groove of contemporary dance music, SAFFRA keep people dancing whilst serving up a treat for the ears.
Dollhouse are a 5-piece band from London. Their influences vary by their membership, but this mix means that their live performances will swing from classic-Beatles to more contemporary artists such as Warpaint and The Strokes. They have one original song out now, called 'Fifty Years' and plan to release more this summer. More information about the band can be found on their Facebook and Instagram pages.
Hailing from Suffolk, Yoji is a soulful pop singer and pianist. Inspired by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and Lauryn Hill, Yoji mainly writes heartfelt songs from experience and has won song writing awards such as Fame Music & Coffee House Sessions, iluvlive and Future Breakers. Yoji has released two EPs and her songs have been played nationally on radio hosted by Marvin Humes Capital FM & Heart FM and this year she has been featured on Tom Robinson’s Fresh On the Net and played on 6 Music. BBC Introducing in Suffolk have been great supporters of Yoji, playing her music regularly and invited her to perform at a showcase. Tipped by the East Anglian Daily Times & the Ipswich Star to be a ‘future chart success’, she is set to take the charts by storm with her new single. YOJI is bringing all the feels with ‘Satellite’, a metaphor for being there for each other in a digital age and a reminder to stay connected with friends. ‘Satellite’ features a beautiful choral arrangement sang by singers from London Gospel Community Choir which uplifts the song and signifies care in unity. Teaming up with The Samaritans YOJI is raising awareness for mental health and also donating the proceeds of all streams and downloads to the charity. Yoji recently completed a Masters in Popular Music at Goldsmiths where she wrote and self produced her latest singles ‘Twinkle Star’ & ‘Satellite’.
