Lead singer of brit-pop heroes The Bluetones, and now successful solo artist to boot, Mark Morriss has been playing the musical field for the last decade and-a-half, seeing him recently described as a 'unique take on the role of the modern day singer-songwriter.' The Point .
In the intimate surrounding of the wonderful Luminaire, this should be a night to remember.
"After making music for the last 15 years with the band South, Jamie McDonald thought it only right that his own songs see the light of day. Jamie has amassed a talented group of musicians and friends over the years, and so bringing a band together was logical as South take their extended hiatus. His Band are: Jamie McDonald (vocals, guitars), George Hider (guitars), Joel Cadbury (bass), Ascher Nathan (keyboards) and Sam Chappell (drums). Somewhere between The Lemonheads and The Bees (with a hint of The Verve), Jamie McDonald anchors his sound with a British grooviness, married with a direct pop sensibility."
Sam is tipped as the best new songwriter for some time in the UK, he was signed on the first meeting he had with British publishers Notting Hill and has spent the last year writing for various Notting Hill artists which currently include Dizzee Rascal and Robbie Williams .
Sams song " Brighter day " was featured heavily in Channel fours hit show "Hollyoaks", and he has appeared regularly on Radio Manchester. Sam has emerged from the studio recording his debut album with drummer / producer Steve White and is taking his songwriting skills to the people. With influences ranging from soul to Reggae, Sam simply has star quality, catch him early.
