“Haunting and soulful singer songwriter ” Time Out, London. You can follow Jazz on Spotify for new music and playlists.https://open.spotify.com/artist/3oRBiqxwxW8BYQdWYtktZo
jasminerodgers sitting Jasmine Rodgers…what can I say…we love her, she’s played here  for many a year now….she is very special …‘her grassroots music reflected both quality composition and ease of delivery.  It was a pleasure to hear the song ‘Seamless’ from her eponymously titled 2010 solo album performed live. Jasmine offers a distinctive blend of touching melodic material, executed with ethereal musical beauty.  The notable set highlight was the melancholy ‘Drinking’, a song she has also performed with dad Paul Rodgers and brother Steve’. Did I tell you? She’s from Rock Royalty..daughter to Paul Rodgers of Free and Bad company..and this life long exposure to music shines out of Jasmine like a bright light….and NOW…she’s bringing a new album…years in the making and now its here…so be sure to witness it’s second outing following a star studded SOLD OUT ALBUM launch party…which I’m going to!

Sat 19/12/15  Kezia & Three Pilgrims

: I hear exciting things about this girl. ‘Kezia stopped me in my tracks. She has a truly beautiful voice, like Anne Briggs but Cornish’ said Neil Halstead ..and “I think she is exceptional – one of the most original and exciting artists to come out of Cornwall” no less than Ralph McTell! Kezia  Kezia is a singer/songwriter who’s sound drifts between folk and blues with a tinge of country. Her lyric based songs are accompanied by thoughtful melodies on the guitar and piano. Kezia’s mature voice sings heartfelt lyrics of matters that many can relate to, conveying a certain melancholy that is heard throughout her music. & Three Pilgrims3pilgrims Our favourite party people whom we love so much have already played three times this year…it’s like the Traveling Wilberies ..musicians  whom have formed bringing all their combined talent, experience and beautiful sounds in a new band.
