More information about the bands:
Matt Sheehan is a young singer-songwriter from Birmingham who delivers a uniqueness and a maturity that is beyond his years, and a performance that can leave a large audience at a standstill. Influenced by the likes of Ben Howard,Michael Kiwanuka,Benjamin Francis LeftwichandMarcus Foster. Look out for his debut EP set to be released very soon.
Sam Evans is an Acoustic Singer Songwriter from the South West of England. He has performed many gigs in his region and has recently been venturing other areas including Romania to widen his fan base. Sam has a unique musical style, which has an upbeat, summery vibe which is closely linked to his love of adventures, and the outdoors. All songs will be originals so if you want something different to the Mainstream you hear on the Radio, then he's definitley worth a listen. Sam will also be joined by Reece Hughes and Jon Parry who are fellow friends/musicians. They will be performing more soulful, relaxed songs in 3 part harmonies.
Brought up just outside of Guildford (Surrey), Jasmine is a 17 year old singer/songwriter who has been performing regularly on the local music circuit in and around the Surrey area.
Coming from a very musical background, Jasmine has been writing songs since the age of 5 and has been playing guitar for nearly as long. As a classically trained singer and pianist, she is very comfortable performing at all venues, from small local pubs through to charity gigs (e.g. 'Shooting Star Chase', 'Oxfam' and 'Cancer Research UK') to large festivals (such as Redfest). She also dabbles in lighting and PA, and has also started to take an interest and work in the studio environment both acting as a session musician, and recording/mixing.
As well as regular shows around the Surrey area, Jasmine has been busy recording material for an EP to be released early 2013, and has a single available on iTunes which has been featured on BBC Surrey and BBC Sussex radio.
With an array of festivals and gigs in the running, Jasmine has been described as "... definitely one to watch in 2013" with her music being described as having "... a musical sway (that) could be compared to the likes of Katie Tunstall, Jack Johnson, and even maybe a hit of Beach Boys..."
Through out my life I have constantly struggled to fit in, alienated as a child and through my teenage years. During my time in school music teachers told me that I could sing, and they often asked me to take part in musical projects. At the age of sixteen I found myself lost in a very dark and scary place, and couldn’t find my way out. This was when I truly discovered music, I realised that in just a few words feelings could be described, that a simple melody could stir an emotion, this was when I picked up a guitar for the first time, and my true passion for song writing began.
For the last two years I have been attending open mics, meeting and working with other very talented musicians. After turning eighteen in April, I’ve been working hard to reach a wider audience of people and share my music.
My music reflects my struggles, my experiences, and sometimes stories of the people around me. I don’t believe there is anything better than live music, so passionate, so real, so honest! I hope to reach people with my music and help them in the same way it has helped me, in a world in which we can all feel a stranger sometimes. Music knows no prejudice, it does not judge and it is with you always during the lows and the highs.
