Nick Luscombe's Flomotion Live celebrates it's third summer as part of the Voices Across The World Festival (the annual celebration of tradition, diversity and innovation in vocal music from across the globe) at London's Royal Opera House, with very special live sets from three young, London based female performers, each pushing soul music to new heights in the capital and beyond.
As Nick puts it: "I'm very excited about the night - it's a real all-star line up. Natalie Williams' brilliant vocals on one of my favourite Drum & Bass tracks of the last 5 years (Nu:tone's "System") blew me away when I first heard it, and everything I've heard from Fatima and Stac to date have been super cool and very creative. We are in for a memorable one for sure!"
Nick Luscombe and special guests will also be on hand to DJ throughout the evening. Interviews and music from each of the night's performers can be heard via www.flomotionradio.com soon.
Born and raised in Berlin to a Hungarian mother and British father, Natalie Williams realised her love for music, in particular jazz, at the age of 15, discovering her Dad’s (the poet John Hartley Williams) immense record collection. Her early influences included singers Nancy Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Aretha Franklin, and these legends inspired Natalie to pursue a career in singing. In 1997 she decided to take her passion further by moving to London to study at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music & Drama, becoming the first person to study both classical and jazz singing on the undergraduate course. She has gone on to tour extensively across the globe, whilst here in the UK has appeared as a featured artist with Goldie, Bugz In The Attic, The Heritage Orchestra, Shy FX and Nu:tone.
Natalie has released three albums to date, the last of which ("Secret Garden") has so far achieved 80,000 downloads. The first single from her soon to be released fourth album has already received great support from BBC 1Xtra and Kiss 100.
The artist otherwise known as Stacey Dowdeswell, began her career at the infamous Brit School (the same institution that spawned Amy Winehouse, Nash and former Flomotion performer Jamie Woon).
Her first release, "Balls Bounce", featured a stunning remix from Bonobo, and was followed up late last year with the anthemic "Glory". Her debut album, "Same Old Thing" features cameos from young trumpet genius Matthew Halsall, label mate Scrimshire, The Heritage Orchestra string section and Stac's very own 15 strong choir! Stac's biggest influences are Lewis Taylor, Erykah Badu and Jamie Lidell, but it's Stac's unique vocal style and song writing that makes her off-kilter and highly original soulful sound stand out.
After featuring on many of last year's biggest tracks including Shafiq Husayns 'Lil Girl', Floating Points 'Peroration Five', TettoryBad's 'Unite' , FunkinEven's 'Kleer' as well as live collaborations with I.G Culture's Zen Badizm workshop, The Floating Points Ensemble and not to mentioned a recent live P.A with Slum Village, its plain to see why the Swedish born London resident is in such high demand!
Featuring her full live band including FunkinEven!
We do hope that you will join us for what promises to be a truly memorable experience in a stunning setting.
