I know, I know, another London gig JAG. But it is for charity, so if you don't read this you must be a big fan of cancer. You heartless bastard.
The Concert:MK presents:
CANCER RESEARCH FUNDRAISER:
We have a frankly brilliant collection of artists together for one night to help raise some money for a very good cause, so get involved and bring some friends!
Hailed as ‘brilliantly original’ by Mojo and ‘super-talented' by the Telegraph, Gwyneth Herbert is at the vanguard of a new generation of genre-defying singer-songwriters. With one foot in the jazz world and one somewhere in the future, her latest full-length release 'All the Ghosts' is populated by a living, breathing cast of beaten-down dreamers, jaded city-dwellers, and women in a quandary, and has the critics in a fizz, scrambling for comparisons with Lennon and McCartney, Nina Simone, the Kinks and Tom Waits.
Winner of EMI Publishing's Most Promising Artist 2010 Award. Compared at times to Paul Weller, The Coral, Turin Brakes and Parachutes-era Coldplay, Danny's songs display craft and wordplay beyond his years. Danny creates dark and atmospheric sounds that represent the underlying themes of loneliness, pain, and the disaster that comes with love.
Extraordinary; all original; able to calm the most disorderly of minds - you could forgive one as young as singer/guitarist Natalie McCool for buckling under the praise of musical touchstones such as Mark Radcliffe and Chris Martin, but unabashed, she has forged on, winning a 'Make It Break It' award along her way.
happy, acoustic, poppy, funky upbeatness... yum yum!
All this, plus the master of ceremonies Nathan Penlington, for just £5. And it's for charity. GET INVOLVED!
