DUSTY POP ENTERTAINMENT & FUNNEL MUSIC PRESENTS ** Sam Wilde ** + The Desert __________________ ‘Sam Wilde is a Leeds based Singer/songwriter. His songwriting shows the influence of his time growing up in Manchester and is modernised by the rugged personality of his voice and strikingly delivered lyricism. The result is a sound that is finely poised between alternative and blues rock with roots of gentle Americana – all brought together through clear instrumental proficiency and intoxicating unpredictability, but most of all, every note and every word is infused with an inimitable passion, his voice occupying a special space between a tender whisper and a savage roar.’ __________________ DOORS 7.30PM | £6ADV | DUSTYPOP.COM

Chalk-Pit Records Official Leeds Launch Party >> Oporto >> Thursday 24th January 201 LINE UP: Green Gardens / Violet Contours / Sunflower Thieves ADV TIX'S £5 @ https://www.seetickets.com/tour/leeds-launch-party Chalkpit Records announce official Leeds Launch Show "Since heading up North in September, Chalkpit Records have been breaking onto the Leeds music scene in a major way. Working with emerging artists, Chalkpit announced their arrival with their debut promotional show back in October. Now they are back and ready to celebrate their official launch at Oporto on Thursday the 24th of January. Its been a busy 3 months for the label, they’ve been in the studio nurturing an exciting new project for the new year, and there are no plans of stopping any time soon. This is just the start of the Chalkpit Records takeover. Chalkpit Records’ very own Silas Gregory said: “Leeds has been fantastic to us so far, its such a vibe. 2019 is looking like a brilliant year for emerging music and we have lots of great plans already in place to support those artists.” The special Launch Night will play host to some of the North’s hottest acts right now, with the event headlined by the incredibly talented Green Gardens. Support comes from tropical indie outfit Violet Contours and sunflower thieves. With the evening’s stellar line-up and limited ticket availability, we suggest you secure your tickets sooner rather than later. Don’t miss out on the chance to treat your ears to some of the best new music coming out of Leeds." Head of Chalkpit Records’ Northern region, Glynn Parkinson said: “Since we launched back in September we’ve been working hard to integrate ourselves into the local scene and I’m very happy to say so far it’s been a huge success. The support we’ve had from the scene has been amazing and our launch show in January is just the start for 2019.”

AK Patterson has been dubbed ‘a woman possessed’, disappearing to a place of fierce enchantment when she sings. At the heart of each performance is her unique vocal style. One that evolved from her upbringing in a jazz-centric household, and influences from Bjork, Jeff Buckley, Ella Fitzgerald and Portuguese Fado musicians. Learning the subtleties and characteristics in each voice has helped her carve her own, which moves easily between sensitive to thrilling attack and moments of melismatic Eastern promise.

We are very pleased to bring to you, our very own monthly happening; 'Shadowlark present... Contact.' For one night each month, we'll be commandeering 'the good ship' Oporto, Call Lane, Leeds and playing with some of our favourite local and not so local artists, chosen especially by us. The first one's gonna be on Wednesday 30th January and is extra special, as we'll all be celebrating Independent Venue Week 2019 too. Exhibit A: Very Large Array; feat. Shadowlark / The Silver Reserve / Lazy Day (solo) // *Lazy Day (solo)* Earlier this year we shared some tour dates with a band called Lazy Day. We loved them, so we asked Tilly to come and open the first night for us... Lazy Day began life in 2014 as the solo bedroom project of Tilly Scantlebury. Self-recording her tracks on Garageband and making them available online, she quickly gained attention and praise from respected music websites and blogs. Their debut EP 'Ribbons' was released in September 2017 and was played by Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music. -- http://www.lazydaylazyday.com -- *The Silver Reserve* One of our favourite moments of Bluedot Festival 2017 was sitting in the sun watching TSR, just great... Matthew Sturgess, who performs as 'The Silver Reserve', plays delicate, sparse music on a classical guitar with songs about out-of-body experiences, monogamy, small-town community Facebook pages and much more. Backed by his band they create dense, layered atmospherics around the tender songs at their core. It's music that doesn't rush and takes its sweet, sad time to unfurl and sneak under the skin. -- http://www.thesilverreserve.com -- *Shadowlark* And there'll be us... -- http://uk.warnerchappell.com/artist-details/1544 -- Doors open at 7:30pm and tickets are £5adv. You can find them here, among other places: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/shadowlark-presents-tickets-52550479900 We hope you'll join us from the start, gotta catch the right atmosphere ;) Big love Ellen, Chris and James x x x
