HOT VOX Presents: Luchi // Catching Mangoes // Menaura // The Collars // Jo Jardim
Situated smack bang in the middle of Soho, the Spice of Life has had a blend of iconic names through its doors over its long history. Now, HOT VOX brings some of the hottest names on the scene to soundtrack your perfect night in Soho.
Luchi (aka Lucia Carmignani) is a London-based 23 year old singer-songwriter originally from Italy. Luchi started writing her own songs from a very young age and worked on her first tracks with label Vinile/Myrope, for six years. Determined to challenge herself and get out of her comfort zone, in the summer of 2018, she moved to London to study music and collaborate with international artists. Her first year in London concludes with a repertoire of original music that mixes her pop/soul background with some new electronic elements.
Catching Mangoes are a three-piece rock band, George, Max and Dan, based in Brighton, UK. After forming in around 2016, they have played relentlessly around the UK and have recently recorded their debut album ‘Kevin’s Town’ in Brighton.
The album follows the tale of a young boy named Kevin on his adventures, escaping his home town in search of the truth about himself and his fellow townsfolk. In trying to figure out the mystery surrounding his long-lost father, Kevin comes to realise that only he can save his town from a terrible fate.
With influences ranging from Radiohead to Deafheaven, Menaura strives to blend the atmospheric, ambient and experimental in a rock context to create an intense and beautiful escape for the listener. The band is made up of a mix of sentimental Scandinavians, heartbroken Englishmen and a melancholic Pole, all brought together among the bricks and mortar of west London. With the different backgrounds and attitudes contributing to a colourful entirety, there is also a strong unity in the purpose of the band – to spread the message of hope and love through loads of effects and reverb.
The Collars are a two-piece Jangle Rock Band from Fleet, Hampshire. It consists of Ross Davidson on Lead Vocals and Guitar and Lucas Buck on drums.
They have been together, writing many songs since early 2019. All the songs are Mixed and Mastered by Lucas and are all recorded in his bedroom. Ross writes the song’s melodies, lyrics and arranges them. The two of them take inspiration from artists such as The Beach Boys, The Smiths, and The Style Council. The pair of them create a very unique stage presence. The frontman, donning a 70s dagger collar shirt sings very literal lyrics. The lyrics attempt to portray — the theme of sadness, heartbreak, and the current state of the world.
Jo is a singer songwriter from Surrey, his acoustic style is matched with his personal lyrical content about life and love
McMullen Real Ales and a variety of world beers, delicious wines, spirits and classic cocktails
