We welcome our Favourite Label, Tru Thoughts to take over our venue for second time. And what a treat they have given us...
Combining a classic yet truly distinctive soul voice with a love of bass and eclectic future beats, each new release from Harleighblu is a revelation. Signed to Tru Thoughts - a match made in musical heaven - Harleighblu has been likened to Erykah Badu and AlunaGeorge in the same breath; her hugely charismatic style has been championed by MistaJam, who was so taken with her 2013 debut single “Enough Now” that he crowned it his ‘Jam Hot’ single of the week, kicking off heavy and escalating support from tastemakers all over the world.
"The most promising English Soul voice" - Les Inrocks
"The new queen of Hip Hop Soul" - MistaJam
Werkha is Tom A. Leah, a Mancunian in Glasgow, via rural Cumbria.
First adopting the alias in 2012, Tom’s time so far as Werkha has seen him craft a singular sonic portfolio; exploring a vast array of live instrumentation, band arrangement, electronic production, DJ and remix work.
Like his busy schedule, Werkha’s productions demonstrate an infectious energy, curiosity, and enthusiasm for exploring the ways in which sound can traverse time and space, taking in transatlantic jazz and soul, diasporic West African percussion, trembling Chinese guzhengs, rolling Lancashire hillsides and vibrating urban tenements.
