We really are very fortunate to be able to welcome Luke back to club. He truly is one of the folk scene's rising stars. With a bold, distinctive voice and a sweet, percussive guitar style, since Luke last visited us, he has won the prestigious Fatea “Male Artist of the Year” twice! I think you can see why from the videos. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
"Every so often a new voice emerges, one so stunning that it knocks you sideways. Jackson has been compared to a young Richard Thompson and for once these are not empty words" – Acoustic Magazine
"One of the great voices of the new youngsters on the folk scene – and a terrific songwriter too" – Mike Harding
"He has a stage presence that many artists would kill for and a voice and guitar style that make you think that he’s a sixty year veteran who happens to have discovered the fountain of eternal youth" – Fatea Magazine
Born in London and living in Hertfordshire, Lauren Rich is a singer-songwriter who certainly knows how to weave her distinctive voice around an effective acoustic chord pattern. With a taste for harmony and autobiographical lyrics that mean her songs border on country, Lauren is an artist with a bright future. It’s little wonder that she is turning so many heads. Having performed at many prestigious London venues and playing live during radio interviews with BBC London and BBC Three Counties, her knack for catchy, acoustic melodies is clearly catching on.
"Absolutely beautiful!" – Gaby Roslin, BBC London
