Lumière’s style of music merges acoustic folk and slow soul with a penchant for storytelling. Her songs are stories, detailing how many times the heart can be broken and mended. Making each song her own story, she writes about others and herself, the lines blurred where each begins. Singing about lost loves and broken hearts, you can’t help but find Lumière’s songs are about you too as she serenades you, playing you earnest words from an earnest heart.
Band members: Lumiere (vocal, guitar)
Marrying the rich tones of Ella Fitzgerald with the performance styles of Phyllis Hyman, there is a classic elegance in the young singer Missbee. She is a unique creation of jazz sensation, fusing soul and latin twists with old-skool jazz. Sweeping from sad to soulful, Missbee’s musical influences draw on a range of emotions to form a complete sound. Her nonsensical scatting and beautiful melodies wake up the ears with their colour. She is a definitive, new voice not only for Jazz fans but lovers of original music.
Band Members: Missbee (vocal), Carl Harris (vocal), Keeling Lee (guitar)
