Very happy to annouce that the amazing Bryde will coming to The Marshall Rooms.
Bryde established her ethereal indie-rock sound early on, working with producers such as Jolyon Thomas ( Royal Blood) and Bill Ryder-Jones (Hooton Tennis Club, Saint Saviour) Early radio support has reflected this coming from the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1, 6music, playlist on BBC Radio Wales and supported by Maz on Radio X. 2016 was a whirlwind year on the live circuit for Bryde: opening for Rufus Wainwright, well-received sets at Dot To Dot, Green Man and Swn, two sold-out London headliners, debut shows in New York and Los Angeles and UK headline tours. 2017 has reached new heights with packed shows at Live at Leeds and The Great Escape, sold out shows and her first shows in Europe. The co-produced debut album mixed by Catherine J Marks (Big Moon, The Amazons) is due in early 2018 with influences of Radiohead, Warpaint and Jeff Buckley evident.
Don Kipper play the ‘Traditional Music of North-East London’. Their music evokes the sound of this corner of the city where a vast array of cultures and peoples live. They’re a band bound by friendship and who together explore a love of the music that surrounds them. They're equally happy taking an intimate audience on a musical journey through Europe as they are taking their feet on a frantic journey around the dancefloor.

It’s a strange story. A folk-rock band – signed to Moshi Moshi, beloved of BBC 6 Music, support act to Adele – nearly make it in the business, but not quite.

Then, in 2017, he produces the album of his career – with the help of some school children, and a group of first year students from Leeds.
