Rarely does an artist like Chris Pureka come along. In an age of fleeting success and temporary notions, Pureka is an artist of substance, armed with a sharp eye for oft-missed details and an emotional intelligence that can switch from withering to compelling with a subtle inflection. Now, with her third studio album How I Learned To See In the Dark, Pureka adds some bold new elements to the soli…d foundation she has been building throughout her ever-escalating eight-year career.
Kalandra is a folk/rock band based in Liverpool, consisting of musicians from England, The Isle of Man and Norway. Led by vocalist and songwriter Katrine Stenbekk, Kalandra’s music draws influences from Norse and Celtic folk songs with a powerful mix of unforgettable melodies, dark themes and heavy arrangements.
Paris-born Tiki Black was raised in France and Cameroon and currently lives in Manchester and her music reflects her very multicultural background. Her passion for words and music sustained her during challenging teenage years when family hardship forced her to become self reliant very early on, and her lyrics reflect her many and varied experiences. Her songs, sung in English, French and her native Douala, with piano accompaniment, never fail to move audiences.
Tom Freeman O’Rourke has been a part of Liverpool’s music scene for more years now than he cares to remember….! He has played with several bands and musicians over the years and can be found gigging regularly in and around Liverpool with the raunchy “Balls Band”. In quieter moments he enjoys gigging solo, armed with just his acoustic guitar and a bag full of songs, some old and new, but all wonderfully performed.
