Fever presents a special showcase of local musical talent.
Taking over the Prince of Wales comes Local Sounds, an evening of new musical talent, perfect for culture vultures who’d like to boast they’ve really heard of these guys first. It’s all part of Fever’s platform to support the most exciting new artists in town.
On Thursday, November 21st, this exciting event will host a series of up-and-coming musicians for a chilled-out evening of emerging talent. Alongside some seriously good live music, you’ll also get a free drink (wine, beer, or a soft drink). Tickets are on sale now, and here’s who you’ll be seeing!
Our main artist for the night is Brixton native Jessica Wilde, who’s launching her new single ‘Out Of My Ooo’ at Local Sounds – hours before it officially drops on Spotify. An established singer-songwriter who’s co-written with the likes of Rudimental, she’s certainly taken the Wilde side to success, which involves a session in Ne-Yo’s Hollywood recording studio minutes after surviving a car crash. Fusing jazz, soul, and hip hop in an enticing musical blend, her tracks have already been featured on BBCR1xtra and Spotify’s ‘New Music Fridays’, so catch her before she’s all over the airwaves!
Sultry R&B vocals are the hallmark of songwriter Laura Roy, who mixes them with catchy pop hooks to create a unique sound. It’s been quite the journey from her native Nova Scotia to London, and since she’s made all this effort, you really ought to give her a listen.
Marrying a heavy focus on storytelling with a rich, blues-infused sound, EBSON has been described as “a rising phoenix bringing order to the streets”. High praise indeed, and with his keen ear for epic, multi-layered arrangements, EBSON will bring a distinctive new sound to your night.
Last, but by no means least, we have AHYNHA, who’ll be DJing throughout the night. Despite lessons from concert pianist Ariana Prussner, AHYNHA’s true music education came from endless nights at London’s illegal raves throughout the noughties. Primarily focusing on house, she also dabbles in old skool hip-hop, jungle, and world music – and already has an album in the works for 2020.
It all takes place upstairs at the brilliant Prince of Wales in Brixton, a perfect place to take in these fabulous upcoming acts. The sounds of London’s best undiscovered talent will waft through the evening air, so get yourself down to Local Sounds to discover your new favourite artist!
