He has written music both the Beatles and Oasis would have been proud to put their names to. All three of tonight’s offerings are completely original and out in front is Juju of Candy Says.
Formerly Little Fish releasing her first album with Custard/Universal then having moved on Juju created Candy Says from which ‘Not Kings‘ was produced. This music was used in the award winning film, Burn Burn Burn. A recent music review declared she has the best voice in Oxford…which when you consider Oxford is the home of Gaz Coombes of Supergrass and Thom Yorke. Praise, yep, and an honest observation too. This show will sell out well ahead of time…be warned!

Sylva Kay: spotted busking in Chesham outside Little Orchard in May 2016 and convinced by her music, Rew (their chef and my son) came over to tell me of her. She plays guitar, loops her voice and creates her own sound…there’s something of the quality of her voice which I’ve heard in one of the most extraordinary musicians I know, Juju (Little Fish/Candy Says) I know you’ll be intrigued by this girl; she brings real feeling and mood to her show and coming all the way from Oxford to see us…let’s see a big show of faces for both acts.
