It may only be the second Absent Kelly Emerging show of the year, but we’re not holding back on the fantastic new talent!
The evening’s headliner is Laced. This up and coming quartet from Amersham play a unique fusion of indie and jazz that makes them stand out from the crowd! The undeniable groove of their songs, topped by truly captivating vocals is inspired and is turning heads all over the South East.
Promising art-rock talent, Ben Lester will be joining us with his band. With fantastic reviews from press, promoters and radio, we’re sure Ben is set for big things, especially after featuring on BBC Radio London and being championed by BBC Introducing.
London based Frayed will be providing support. They may only be young, but this four piece are already making waves with their feel good, no frills, indie rock ‘n’ roll! With grungy elements, these guys are far from a sickly sweet, jangly indie band, and have a real edge.
Liverpudlian indie rockers Lotus Bay will be there too. The prog influenced four piece have already gained quite a name for themselves with their laid back rock, and this signature sound has seen them bag slots at legendary venues like the Zanzibar Club.
Indie/folk singer-songwriter Giulio Beltramo will be opening the show. Despite him being relatively new to the London scene, Giulio’s laid back yet uplifting sound is sure to see him go far!
