Folk This is a monthly showcase presenting the best Folk, Blues and Soul artists London has to offer. This showcase features….
Robert J. Hunter
Dirty rhythm and blues from the depths of Alderney, based in London. Island born Robert J. Hunter combines his gruff and powerful voice with the wild thud of overdriven blues guitar. His powerful debut album, ’Songs for the Weary’, received blues chart success and critical acclaim and the single release, ‘Demons’, reached number one in the UK iTunes Blues Chart.
Izzie-Lou Thatcher Music
Isobel is a singer-songwriter originally from Salisbury, Wiltshire but currently living in South London, whose voice has been compared to artists such as KT Tunstall and Bonnie Raitt. Izzie-Lou accompanies her singing with tuneful acoustic guitar, with strong chord patterns and catchy tunes. Having being brought up around the blues music from a young age, Izzie-Lou cites the blues as her main musical influence. However, she incorporates pop, indie, soul and ambient into her music as well as the blues. This gives Izzie-Lou’s songwriting an unusual yet infectious edge.
