Meet 21-year old Matt. He’s our new presenter. Described by The Guardian as ‘the next bright young sensation’, multi-award winning comedian Matt Richardson has quickly become one of the most exciting new acts on the comedy circuit. Last year he won Best Show at Dave’s Comedy Festival and will embark on his first headline solo tour in Autumn. Bringing bags of confidence and his cheeky smile, we can’t wait for you all to meet him!
Having racked up an impressive 160,000 hits on YouTube in the last two months, Pop/Rnb 4 piece Relics are the ones to watch. These lads look / sound great and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to Showcase Live for their first gig, ever! Check out their Chris Brown cover below:
Last month Showcase Live went to Capital’s Summertime Ball to talk to the artists about new music, showcases and advice. Check it out:
Check out this awesome new band, The Future Kicks! They’ll be performing at Showcase Live very soon and you’re going to love them.
They’re a brand new band with a difference. They weren’t put together; they all play instruments and they’re here to get people excited!
Originally from Newcastle and Carlisle, the band recently moved to London and have been working with top writers and producers. Formed of singer Zen Blythe, brothers Ben and Cru Fox, guitarist Bri Wildey and drummer Andy Bainbridge, they are a collective of artists, skaters and dancers.
Last year BBC Radio 1 described the band as “the next kings of pop” after they played the stations Big Weekend festival in Carlisle.
The newly formed Times Red are a 3 piece ensemble comprising Scott Ritchie (Lead Vocal and Guitar), Staz Nair (Keys & Vocal) and Luke White (Loop pedal, beat-boxer & Vocal). This exciting trio combine live instruments with tight harmonies on stage that bring a sound that has been described as ‘The Script meets Bruno Mars’. It has received great reviews from publishers and A&R’s alike.
Showcase Live is five years old and we are ready for a party!!
Five acts and some very special guests will be heading to Under The Bridge on 20 February and lets just say we’re excited! Head over to the Shows page for the full lineup
So January is that time of year where all these “Ones To Watch” lists pop up. Well here at Showcase Live we want to predict our own two successes for the year.
Domino Go a.k.a. Karl and Timz. What’s not to love about this lovable troublesome duo? Breathtaking vocals, incredible songwriting and amazing musicianship. They’ve been working on their debut album with Atlantic Records for the last two years and having heard a sneak peak – we reckon these boys will be ruling the airwaves in 2012.
We’ve worked with Lawson a lot over the last year and are predicting big things for them. They signed to Polydor last year and have already supported The Wanted, Will Young and Avril Lavigne on tour. Look out for their debut album coming in 2012.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, The Kixx will no longer be appearing at Showcase Live on 21 November. We’re now very pleased to announce that Alex Buchanan joins the lineup. Currently playing the lead in Thriller Live, Alex will be making his Showcase Live debut and previewing some of his own solo material. Originally from Manchester, he has been writing and producing his debut album with names such as Pete Boxsta Martin, Bressie, Pantha, Dantae Johnson and Jermaine Riley.
