TWO BIG SUMMER SHOWS THIS WEEK WITH DAMO SUZUKI & LIAM BAILEY!

DAMO SUZUKI
The Soundhouse & Wake up promotions are delighted to present this never-to-be-repeated show with the legendary Damo Suzuki on Thursday 3rd August!

Damo will perform with a specially formed band of local ‘sound carriers’ as he likes to refer to them for what will be a one-off performance. Local sound carriers will be Echolocation & guests.

Damo Suzuki, the Japanese musician, is best known as the former singer of the legendary German krautrock band CAN. He fronted the band during their highly productive period between 1970-73, when CAN delivered albums such as Tago Mago, Future Days and Ego Bamyasi.
CAN are one of the fore-fathers of krautrock and it’s a genre of music that continues to inspire so many of todays artists.

This will be a unique and never to be repeated event

LIAM BAILEY
The phenomenal voice and talent of Liam Bailey is at the venue on Friday 4th August!

Walking in the blues-soaked, jam-hardened, stage-aged footsteps of the real soul greats, Liam Bailey carries all the authenticity of a true original. An intense, deeply engaging and enigmatic solo artist, Liam has found a wide audience through major collaborations such as 2011’s top 5 Blind Faith alongside Chase and Status and 2013’s summer smash Soon Come with Shy FX, well supported by David Rodigan, Zane Lowe and Annie Mac.

A genuine and uncompromising talent, he released his first two EPs on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness Records, one of only a few artists given a home by the indisputable queen of 21st century UK soul. Although his subsequent relationship with Polydor was short-lived, which included some time working with Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse, Fugees, Fergie, Estelle), Liam has had no problem in finding labels willing to release various impeccable singles, whilst collaborating with artists as diverse as Delilah and DJ Fresh. He eventually released his masterful and fully formed debut album Definitely Now on Flying Buddha/Sony.

In between touring with Chase & Status, Liam has been gaining momentum as a solo artist, including a jaw-droppingly beautiful performance on Jools Holland in September 2015. Now he is shaping up for what could be his most significant year yet, with tantalising studio sessions with Gorillaz and new material out.
