Birmingham Promoters present: ANNE-MARIE ALLEN + SPECIAL GUESTS Ages 18+ • Doors 7:00pm www.birminghampromoters.com
Anne-Marie Allen is a BBC Introducing artist. Her distinct vocal tone captivates audiences who enjoy soul, funk and blues with a hint of reggae and folk! Anne-Marie's unique musical style does not confine itself to one specific genre and she is a keen lover of William Onyeabor, Goat, and Tinariwen.
Anne-Marie's lyrics are honest about the human condition, yet her music has an upbeat vibe to keep audiences smiling. Anne-Marie's songs tell stories of freedom, capitalism, and human connection, presenting an occasional lucid lyrical landscape with relentlessly unforgiving bass lines and guitar rhythms! Anne-Marie's debut EP "Intuition" was released in May 2018, presenting a fresh new tone to the alternative music scene.
Her track “Zombie Paradise” was added to the Brum radio A list in April 2018 and was also selected to be played as part of the up and coming artists promotion for unsigned artists on Nova Radio station. Following the success of "Zombie Paradise" this track in addition to her track "Vibe Attracts a Tribe," was instantly selected by BBC Introducing and was played during two consecutive weeks on BBC radio West Midlands.
You can also hear Anne-Marie Allen's tiltle track for her EP "Intuition" on BBC radio West Midlands here:
D Jekyll and Glast Dance is a Punk-soul, Celtic funk and rocking reggae band. They deliver their performance whilst dressing like renegade Geography teachers.
Zee Khattak is a multi-instrumentalist, vintage music enthusiast and producer from Birmingham, UK. With diverse influences from the folk revival period of England and America, Zee has crafted a unique contemporary sound with hints of blues, rock and progressive genres. Often dark and brooding, his songwriting explores themes of loss, nostalgia and longing; reminiscent of the likes of Neil Young, Jackson C Frank and Kris Kristofferson.
His debut EP released on limited edition vinyl with Gray Sky Records has been described by label owner Michael Hession as ‘A great record that is timeless in both its sound and its message.’
With a self-produced debut album in production, Zee continues to craft his skills both in the studio and on-stage; with multiple collaborations in a variety of roles and diverse venues throughout England.
