About our upcoming artists...
Jay Johnson is an award-winning musician and singer-songwriter who moved to London before his teenage years, and began making music from a young age. Jay’s naturally curious mind led him to start learning the cello. He then taught himself how to play the guitar a few years after. Jay started listening to artists such as Bob Dylan, Paolo Nutini and Ben Howard from his early teens, and as a result their influences can often be seen in his original works.
Two singer-songwriters from opposite ends of the globe crossed paths in England and blended their voices in harmony to become O&O, a musical duo comprised of Colorado-native, multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Obadiah Jones, and Israeli vocalist, Orian Peled. The two met while studying for a Music BA at Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) where they had the unique opportunity of a one-on-one songwriting session with Sir Paul. Following shows in NYC and Nashville, O&O bring their retro-Americana sound to London.
The Sea Kings
The Sea Kings are an acoustic duo from Cornwall; now living in London. Drawing on influences from their home county, they write and perform songs about lighthouses, local legends and the landscape they grew up in. Over time, their set has grown to include many thrilling covers of well-known songs, performed lustily on guitar and percussion with harmony vocals. They have performed at numerous events, including Glastonbury Festival 2013-16, and have provided support for Joan Armatrading, Chris Wood and Rodney Branigan. A self-titled debut album is available through their website.
The Cash Cows rework your favourite tunes from across the last century in a quirky style that keep guessing and everyone entertained. With more than 10 years' experience, their unique style of playing classic songs is guaranteed to intrigue and delight any audience. Their repertoire covers everything from Gershwin to Oasis, Bob Dylan to Beyoncé and Elvis to S Club. It’s upbeat, happy, dancing music in a skiffle, rockabilly, jazz style.
Previous Broadgate Live artists
Belle and the Busker are fronted by singers Cíara Rafferty and Daniel Spiller.They have been described as contemporary country/folk, but if you dig a little deeper you'll find an Irish singer mixing melodic songwriting with mellifluous harmonies and slick musicianship.The duo have been championed by Janice Long on BBC Radio 2 with several plays of their track Takes Two which has also been a feature on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio London.
Hollie Rogers is a singer, songwriter and guitarist with an incredibly powerful voice. Her live performances consistently receive outstanding reviews. With the backing of BBC Introducing and two stunning studio albums under her belt, Hollie has supported acts such as Suzanne Vega, Paolo Nutini and Ben Howard. Often playing with a full backing band or as a duo with Thomas Holder (pictured) on double bass, Hollie’s live shows are not to be missed. Recently, her fan base recently came together to crowdfund a new release: The Body To Ground EP which is due out April 2017.
Like a scientist, Tom experiments with bringing different textures and instruments into clubs and onto dance floors to surprise and excite audiences. Synthesisers, electric bongos, drum machines and violins have all featured at one point or another.
Underpinning the performance is a constant cycle of music production needed to keep things fresh and interesting for the instruments, which sometimes lead and sometimes accompany. From busking on the streets of Berlin, playing in bars and filling clubs to headlining festivals... Savaggio lives on. What does the future hold? Not a clamour for fame, but a hunger to keep probing what makes people get down. To keep asking questions of the norm. To keep practising and perfecting an art that knows no boundaries.
Prepare to be challenged and positively moved as you experience the infectious creativity of Sherika Sherard. With a voice like velvet to deliver her positive outlook on life, this singer-songwriter never fails to warm the hearts of listeners. Her rhymes speak with the authority of a seasoned wordsmith within tunes that are destined to become hugely familiar to anyone with an ear for melody and an emotional core.
Recently legendary British soul and R&B singer Seal fell victim to her charm and decided to pay Sherika a surprise visit on the Southbank, where she is known to regularly busk. Together they performed Marvin Gaye’s I Heard It Through The Grapevine and Seal's hit Kiss From A Rose. The duet was streamed live on Seal’s Facebook and was broadcast on ITV News.
