Well, we suppose it was bound to happen at some point – and this is it. Liverpool Acoustic is putting on a show, and you’re all invited!
We’ve got an exciting line-up for you, with five acts in one night.
Stephen Langstaff was described by Glasswerk.co.uk as having ‘The voice of an angel with the power of a Tsunami’. Of late Stephen has played to sell-out crowds at the Liverpool Carling Academy 2, and is the first non-signed artist to headline the Carling Academy 1. The Liverpool Acoustic Live gig is a rare chance to see Stephen performing in the intimate View Two Gallery – a gig not to be missed! www.stephenlangstaff.co.uk
Lizzie Nunnery is an award-winning playwright, and a highly accomplished singer and songwriter. Liverpool.com reviewed her current EP by saying ‘Clever songs, beautifully recorded, perfectly delivered. Who says you can’t have it all?’ Come along and experience nu-folk at its best. www.lizzienunnery.co.uk
Ali Ingle says “Life’s not so beautiful without a soundtrack” so he writes his own! Hailing from Widnes, Ali is active on the local acoustic scene and has been know to arrange his own open mic nights too. As a performer he impresses wherever he plays. www.myspace.com/aliingle
Luke Jackson is a genuine star in the making. No – scratch that – he’s a star now! His powerful, distinct voice, his confident guitar playing, and his mature songwriting all belie the fact that he’s only 14! Up in the northwest from his native Canterbury for two gigs in Manchester on Saturday we couldn’t resist offering him a place on the bill for the very first Liverpool Acoustic Live show. Listen to his songs on his MySpace and youTube sites then come along and experience it for real. www.myspace.com/lukepauljackson
MelloFolk is a new collective bringing together some of Liverpool’s best musicians and performers, featuring Stuart Todd and Stan Ambrose.
