WAKE UP GIGS - sunday 3 june 2018 - omeara, se1, 13:00 - 16:00
nick mulvey + rob.green
We've been busy beavering away since December, working on our most special show, and are delighted that the incredible NICK MULVEY will be headlining our next show on Sunday 3 June. We've also moved to OMEARA and brought all the best bits of our previous shows with us.
Nick Mulvey is not only an amazing artist but the timing of this show feels particularly appropriate as he has became a father for the second time only a couple of weeks ago - so is more than familiar with all the joys that come with becoming a parent and the impact it can have on life including experiencing live music. Nick will be playing a short UK tour in May, including headlining his biggest show so far at the Royal Albert Hall and then a couple of weeks later we are lucky to have him play for us in the intimate surroundings of OMEARA. As if there weren't enough clues that this show was simply meant to be, his most recent album is called Wake Up Now - and we can't wait to welcome him to our stage. Nick will be joined by a supporting act on the bill, to be announced closer to the date of the show.
Nottingham-based singer songwriter ROB.GREEN has drawn upon the varied genres of music he grew up with – including soul, RnB, indie and rock, to inform his own distinctive sound and style.
In 2016, his self-titled ROB.GREEN EP debuted in the Top 40 of iTunes Album Chart in it's first week (and #3 in iTunes RnB Chart). He has won international critical acclaim for the innovative, continuous shot music video for Blue - the EP's debut single.
In 2016 alone, the self taught guitarist performed over 100 fixtures around the UK including; Y Not Festival, Victorious Festival, and gave an exclusive performance at the Apple Regent Street store to celebrate the EP's success as part of their #TodayatApple programme.
In 2017 Rob performed at the BBC Proms as part of Clare Teal's Swing No End Proms, which aired on BBC 6MUSIC, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Four television. He also supported Grammy Nominee Eric Bibb on the Netherlands leg of his Migration Blues Tour. This year Rob re-joins both artists on their respective tours, beginning with supporting Eric Bibb for eleven dates of his UK Tour April 2018.
BELIEF - Rob's latest single - immediately gained the attention of BBC Introducing's Dean Jackson. Receiving plays from Tom Robinson (BBC 6MUSIC) and Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) within one week of each other.
