Description

The coming together of two friends on the Loves stage promises to be a VERY special night of intimate and unique music.

Robert Vincent, Americana Music Association UK’s 2021 Artist of the year and 2021 UK Album of the year.

Since his debut album ‘Life in Easy Steps’ in 2013, Robert Vincent from Liverpool has been one of the most acclaimed new voices in Americana, Country and Folk. Having received the inaugural Emerging Artist Award from ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris in 2016 – who described Vincent as “absolutely magnetic”, Robert was then invited onto BBC4’s ‘Old Grey Whistle Test: For One Night Only’. That performance marked a real breakthrough for Vincent, establishing him as one of the UK’s leading lights in Americana and propelling him to #1 in the iTunes Country chart.

On Robert’s latest offering ‘In This Town You’re Owned’, he returns with his most relevant album to date, produced by Brit Award winning Ethan Johns – who has won acclaim for his production work with, amongst others, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon, The Boxer Rebellion, The Staves, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Tom Jones. What a great result for Robert and Ethan Johns scooping Album of the Year. Overall fantastic achievements for Robert. What an unbelievable climb it’s been after so many years of writing and recording.

Robert has performed extensively across the UK, Europe and the USA alongside such classic artists as Elvis Costello, Robert Plant, James Blunt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Paul Carrack.

‘He’s The Real Deal’ –  Bob Harris OBE (BBC RADIO 2)   

‘A Phenomenal Spiritual Listen’ – Sunday Times Album Review

Matt Owens, British born singer-songwriter and musician Matt Owens first came to prominence as a founder member of indie-folk band Noah and the Whale.

Releasing four albums, Noah and the Whale achieved huge success in the UK and overseas, selling over one million albums in the UK alone. The band toured the world between 2006 and 2015, playing hundreds of festivals, including Austin City Limits, Fuji Rocks and Lollapalooza, as well as touring with the likes of Arcade Fire, Bahamas, and Laura Marling.

February 2019 saw the release of Matt’s debut solo album, “Whiskey and Orchids” to widespread critical acclaim including a 5 star review in Maverick Magazine. Nigel Stonier produced the album which featured Tom Waits’ drummer Michael Blair, Thea Gilmore, Carleigh Aikins from Bahamas, and Robert Vincent.

The album’s already received substantial Radio play from BBC 6 Music, 5 LIVE, BBC Scotland and BBC Wales. A UK Tour supporting Thea Gilmore followed in May, (with Matt also playing in her band) and this summer he played over 25 festivals as far flung as the West Coast of Ireland and north Scotland including Glastonbury Festival after which he supports Robert Vincent on his Autumn UK Tour.
