Prepare to be challenged and positively moved as you experience the infectious creativity of Sherika Sherard. With a voice like velvet to deliver her robust persona this Artist never fails to warm the hearts of listeners. Born and raised in South London, it was after listening to Marvin Gaye that Sherika came to realise she also wanted to discover her deepest emotions through performance and songwriting. When finding her sound, Sherika says “Paolo Nutini told me to pick up the guitar and Nina Simone told me to reflect the current times”.
Dave Sears & Mike Brown
Having played solo around London folk bars mostly from Camden to Greenwich, Dave Sears’ music has been described as independent folk akin to Bert Jansch or John Martyn, mixed with the modern influences of Nick Cave or Jack White. Also, as half of folk rock duo ‘Yeti Love’ who've recently toured with Nick Oliveri (bassist of Queens of the Stone Age) on his ‘Death Acoustic’ Tour, Dave has been able to meet enough brilliant musicians on his travels to form ‘The Folk Thing’ a more bluesy, punchier take on his solo material.
Poppy Holmes grew up in South London listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Laura Marling and Noel Coward. She started writing songs at 11 years old and hasn’t stopped since. Come and watch this up-and-coming singer-songwriter writer perform her witty, poetic lyrics with smooth tones.
