EP release day!
Friday 4th May was my EP launch party at Coast Cafe in Worthing and the turnout was great! There were roughly 75 people there showing their support for me and the other performers or which I am eternally grateful for.
First up we had Anabel Mather, a singer from Storrington who has recently been accepted into Berklee College in America which is the equivalent of Oxford and Cambridge but for music in the U.S. I can’t thank her enough for all the time and effort she put in to support me and learn all the backing vocals for my original music too. I’m so lucky to have her as a friend.
Next up we had Jacob Trafford who is a singer songwriter from Worthing. Honestly, I had never met him before the event. I only asked him to do it hours before the gig as someone had pulled out last minute. He filled the space outstandingly and I’m super excited to hear his EP which will be out at the end of May. So keep your eyes out!
Next up we had the wonderful Lisa Lo. Though they have only been together for 2 months, their Soul, jazz vibe was gorgeous. In their band they have Lisa on vocals, Dylan on bass, Oscar on drums and Brandon on guitar. I’m looking forward to hearing more of them in the future.
I want to say the biggest of thanks to my band. We had Luke on drums and he has been accepted into the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) to study for university. There was Henry on Bass for most the set (he also played guitar for a few songs too) he has also been accepted to study guitar at ACM in September along with Leo who has also been accepted. Leo had also played a big part in my EP as he played all the bass and electric guitar for it, so huge thanks to him! Anabel was also singing with me on the night for which I am super grateful. These people are the most hard working and dedicated people I know and I cannot thank them enough for learning the 16 song set in such short notice; I cannot wait to see what they all will go onto to produce in the future and am privileged to be able to play with such a talented group of people.
Lastly I want to thank you all for supporting me and taking the time out your day to come to my event, listen to my EP, for purchasing /streaming my EP, giving me and the other acts really great feedback and for sharing on social media. You have no idea how much this helps and gives us the power to continue making music.
On that note, go and listen to my EP Ignite on any platform you want now and be sure to let me know what your favourite song is! Just search Xoe-B!
