-- THIS SHOW HAS NOW SOLD OUT --

Support from Nia Wyn and Heir 

Karima has toured the UK and Europe extensively with her captivating performances – She has graced the major stages supporting such artists as Paul Simon/ The Stereophonics / Jack Savoretti / Patti Smith and Amy Winehouse

Having begun playing drums at 13, Karima Francis self-taught guitar and songwriting at the age of 18. Not long after, her legendary debut The Author was released on independent record label Kitchenware Records, produced by the gifted Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paulo Nutini). She was named as a number one act to watch in 2009 by the Observer. The Author effortlessly found common ground with Francis’s audiences. It’s a song-driven album, entwined with melodic textures and innovative musical progressions. This emotionally rich album was met with critical acclaim for both her vocals and songwriting. Francis’s performance on BBC’s iconic music show ‘Later with Jools Holland’ in 2010, was the icing on the cake for the Author’s success. 

In 2012 Francis returned with her second album ‘The Remedy’ produced by Flood (U2, PJ Harvey, Smashing Pumpkins). Prior to the release, Francis spent some time in LA where she wrote her most crowd-pleasing single ‘Wherever I go’ with the likes of Linda Perry. Released on Vertigo records, the Remedy’s blossoming betterment proved just how prolific Francis is as an artist. 

Karima Francis self-released her third album ‘Black’ in 2015 produced by Dan Austin [Doves / Cherry Ghost / Kid Wave]. Black’s ambient sounds went hand in hand with Francis’s astonishing vocals. 

Francis is now experimenting with new sonics and wider musical arrangements, whilst in focus on production and writing her fourth album, making us all eager of what's yet to come…

Little India

Little India

Yara Magarino Presents: Little India, Marius Bear

Little India (Canada)Little India is a band consisting of four friends whose success unfolded unexpectedly after coming together to play music just four years ago in Vancouver, Canada. Their worldly influence is heard through unique hooks and samples, and can be credited to the combination of their South African and Canadian heritages with a strong British influence. In their short yet explosive career, their sound has been described as nostalgic rock with 80’s pop influences. Jon Siddall (CBC Music) explains it as “The Cure meets Talking Heads.” By implementing the perfect harmony of pop rock and electronic sampling, their ever-changing sound keeps listeners on their toes and allows for experimentation in the character of each song, all the while keeping you dancing.

Marius Bear (Switzerland)Raw, unpolished and rocky she sounds, that deep male voice. Literally a bear of a man presents himself to us – the most powerful voice, that Switzerland ever had to offer. Marius’ voice reminds us of no one less than the world famous legend Joe Cocker. With his charisma and the depth within his voice, Marius captivates his audience completely and gives it a whiff of his wild and soft soul. That catchy Soul Pop Rock goes deep under your skin, leaves you with goosebumps and is an absolute must for each music loving individual.

*FIRST LONDON HEADLINE SHOW FOR 2 YEARS*

Born and raised in the coastal town of Bournemouth, UK, Charlie Hole’s story began when he heard Damien Rice’s ‘O’ at the tender age of 14. From that first listen, his desire to reach the same emotional depths became clear; realising his ability to create emotive and fearless tracks, learning and evolving throughout.

After a chance meeting with the well-respected guitarist and producer, Jim Cregan (Rod Stewart, Katie Melua, Family), the pair began working closely together, with Jim mentoring Charlie and teaching him about the world of songwriting while always pushing him to develop his own style and sound. Finding comfort in beautifully crafted words over effortless melodies, Charlie Hole is one of the most exciting young singer songwriters around. Coined by Rod Stewart as an emerging talent with a gift for writing ‘beautiful songs’, Charlie has always been destined for great things.

With a brave and honest voice, tackling relatable subject matters for all audiences, Charlie Hole shares his personal stories of broken dreams and lost love in the pursuit of happiness through his powerful and commanding songwriting. With inspirations ranging from legends such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, Charlie has been writing music and touring his songs across the UK and Europe for over 10 years, playing well over 1000 gigs, and has supported notable artists such as Billy Ocean and Steve Harley.

Charlie has also taken his live shows to an intimate level, doing a Living Room Tour of fans houses to only a handful of guests. The tour was close to his heart as he is heavily involved with Sofar Sounds, after bringing the monthly events to his hometown of Bournemouth.
