POW! The POWder Room

10 Mar 2018 - 11 Mar 2018

A music extravaganza featuring a diverse array of fabulous artists spanning the generations and held at the UK’s best small venue.

An evening proudly celebrating great women in music past and present, as well as new artists looking to the future pushing boundaries and genres. The night will feature soul legend, Linda Lewis, one of Britain's most respected and talented singer songwriters, whose career spans more than four decades. With her five-octave vocal range, she has fused folk, soul, pop and reggae into a unique signature sound that is now an integral part of the pop music landscape.

Tipped as one to watch, Black Gold Buffalo, play ahead of the release of their debut album. Formed in 2014, they honed their style playing shows around London’s East End, then spent a year perfecting the production. Keziah Stilwell’s distinctive, fiery, often harrowing voice, combines with Marc Hayward’s, glistening, desert evoking guitar licks, which fuse with Hannah Holland and Joy Joseph’s throbbing rhythm section of new waves basslines, heavy 4/4 dance floor and afrobeats. Their first single Pearls Deep blends deviant rock 'n' roll with a brooding edge, an atmospheric return rich in allusion and dark artistry.’   

They are joined by electronic musician Daisy Emily Warne, pianist and vocalist Emily Watts, composer and performer Lillian Henley and jazz artists Sabina Desir  and  Lizzie Bell. The house band consist of Frances Knight (piano), Josefina Cupido (percussion) and Alex Keen (bass).  Jo Wallace, Jessica Lauren and Bernadette Hawkes are behind the decks.
