Songwriters’ Circle is a Nashville style ‘in-the-round’ live gig that sees three talented singer-songwriters doing what they do best on the first Saturday of every month!
The next Songwriters’ Circle is on Sat 1st Dec at 8.30pm and we are delighted to have some VERY local musicians Richard Lobb, Nick Holywell-Walker and Haley Glennie-Smith joining us.
Haley has been a regular on the London acoustic scene since moving back to the big smoke after a decade in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. She has had the pleasure of working on a series of inspiring music projects including contributing interpretations of two Robert Johnson blues songs to the soundtrack of Stephen Woolley’s feature film ‘Stoned’ – a biopic about Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, and performing the end title song of ‘Sugarhouse’ a British film scored by composer, Michael Price. She is the vocal soloist for the BBC’s orchestral show, Planet Earth in Concert, touring the USA, UK and most recently performing at the Sydney Opera House with the Metropolitan Orchestra.
Nick Holywell-Walker is frontman for 30,000 Days, a cinematic rock outfit consisting of himself and ‘anyone else necessary to get the right sound’. 2009′s debut album ‘Life and Time of Everyone Ever’ distills the songs of more than 15 years writing. Nick makes his living by day as a commercial writer for TV, and before this spent 11 years as keyboard player in seminal UK band Killing Joke. His dark but sweetly melodic take on songwriting makes him one of London’s best kept secrets.
In recent years, Richard has played Wembley Stadium (twice), toured with Emmylou Harris, Kasabian, U2 and Noel Gallagher with The Hours, Lucie Silvas, Simon Lynge. In the past two years, Richard has focused his creative energy closer to home, making his own album (The Hospital for Broken Things) and two babies – delivering the most recent himself in the bathroom!
