Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Robomagic is leading the fight for more female talent. Today the live promotion company announced that it’s created a special showcase night called ROAR.
Beginning 18 April and running monthly through 13 June at The Pickle Factory in London, the event will feature a talented all-female line-up of musicians.
ROAR follow in the footsteps of Finding the Female Headliner, a monthly showcase that was held at Birthdays in North London in 2015. Events like these are intended to address the lack of female artists as headliners on festival bills.
“We want to carry on being part of the change, offering a platform for emerging female talent to perform at events specifically designed to help them grow and reach new audiences,” said Robomagic promoter Chloe Gamble.
With women’s issues at the forefront thanks to International Woman’s Day and 100 Years of Woman, Robomagic believes it’s more important than ever that female artists have a platform to be seen and heard.
“Helping them on the road to becoming more established artistes is very important to me as it will inevitably lead to adding more equality to the headline talent pool often referred to by major event and festival bookers,” added Gamble.
With April’s launch event on the horizon, get ready for a night of music from four talented ladies that’s sure to knock your socks off!
South London singer-songwriter SueLily is set to perform. Seeing music as a fluid method of self-expression she prefers not to be boxed into a specific genre. While constructing personal narratives through her music, SueLily’s sound can best be described as a gentle merging of Neo-soul, hip hop and jazz.
Also on ROAR’s first bill is the vivacious Sophie Faith, another uniquely talented singer-songwriter. Audiences find her music is instantly infectious and on stage she has the ability to convey even the most seemingly insignificant emotional nuances.
Rounding out the evening’s line-up are the soulful voices of 22-year-old Saie from South East London and BaggE, who also weaves RnB elements in her sound, as well as a DJ set from L U C Y.
So come enjoy some incredible music while supporting emerging female artists at ROAR! It’s a great chance to see these headliner-worthy women who are sure to become stars one day.
