Celebrating the best of emerging country music stars from both the UK and USA, bringing a taste of Nashville to Canary Wharf, the East Wintergarden welcomes Lucy May, Red Sky July and Jess and The Bandits – all in one night and all live!
JESS AND THE BANDITS
Following successful tours with Boyzone and The Overtones, her own songs playlisted on BBC Radio 2 and her rendition of ‘Wichita Lineman’ on Terry Wogan’s Sunday morning show that had fans going crazy, Texan born Jessica Clemmons burst onto the UK Country scene in 2012 with The Bandits. Jessica’s sassy voice is a powerhouse that can demolish houses but just as easily float like a butterfly. The Bandits lay down a breezy country rock groove with infectious energy and sincerity that warrants further attention.
RED SKY JULY
Ally Mcerlaine, Shelly Poole (previously one half of million-selling duo Alisha’s Attic) with former model Charity Hair make up Red Sky July. Their music is a mix of hazy, alt country and Americana inflected sound. They have garnered much critical acclaim and media support since their debut album 2012 release. Their first UK tour in 2013 included T in the Park and guest slots with Deacon Blue, James Walsh (Starsailor) and Jools Holland at his sold out performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Their new album, released late last year, received outstanding reviews along with major airplay and appearances on Radio 2 and Radio Scotland. The album reached #3 in the official UK Country album chart. Since then they have performed with guest Nashville singer/songwriter Beth Nielsen Chapman and the legendary Steve Earle, Sheryl Crow and the renowned 10cc.
British country-pop singer Lucy May is already a big hit on Radio 2 and Sir Terry Wogan has tipped her to be the next big UK country star. Lucy’s raw talent was noticed by the company behind hits for LeAnn Rimes, Keith Urban and Kylie which lead to her debut single Paper Heart being produced by Greg Fitzgerald who has with Kylie, Madonna, and Jessica Simpson.
