Sad House Daddy presents Bottles Of Blues, a new weekly live show held every Thursday in East London at Biddle Bros. Entry is FREE and here’s this week’s line-up:
9.00pm JOSH COTTERILL
Wrapped in a bed of dark ambient melancholy sits the husky vocal of British singer/songwriter Josh Cotterill, influenced by artists such as Ben Howard, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley. After moving from Shropshire to London when he was eighteen years old Josh spent some time taking in what the city had to offer and adapting to the fast paced nature of urban life. He has written songs about what he’s seen around him, such as the exquisite ‘Lost In The City’.
9.40pm THE WOLFE SISTERS
The Wolfe Sisters is a collective of musicians based on the songs of Gavin Pearce, who specialises in folk and country influenced tunes with a dark lyrical slant. Guest musicians including Veronica Thompson, Louise Riley, Shimrit Elisar, Rasp Thorne and Nicola Cunningham provide feature vocal harmonies on some songs, which are beautifully interwoven with the haunting strings of Sophie Loyer on violin and Sarah Gill on cello.
10.20pm BEN HEMMING
BEN HEMMING is a London based singer/songwriter born and raised in the rural midlands. He spent much of his youth hammering away at an old six-string guitar and honing the gothic Americana blues sound that has become his calling card. His debut album “Broken Man” was released last year to great reviews from the blues community, including The Blues Magazine, Blues Blast Magazine and Blues Rock Review, and included a song recorded at the famous Third Man recording booth in Nashville. Playing tonight with his band, featuring Raff Ruocco on double bass and Eric Young on drums.
“His holler is passionate one minute, world-weary the next as he recalls the blues of the Mississippi delta while capturing the spirit of the beat poets on the road” – The Blues Magazine
