Courtney Askey Album Launch

2Funky Music Cafe, 23A New Park Street, Leicester

The release of the debut album, 'Oh! Softly Goes'.

“Leicester’s favourite Gothic-Folk Noir girl”, Courtney Askey, plays lo-fi, grungy, folk-tinged alternative music. Based in Leicester, she has lived, produced and performed works in England, Paris and Hong Kong.

Previously solo, she now plays as a self titled four piece. Drawing on influences from 1920s decadence through to 1990s grunge, Courtney’s ‘honey-coated’ vocals draw in and mesmerise the listener. She has been prolifically writing, performing and recording music since 2010.

Supports:

We Three And The Death Rattle "UK-based indie rock band We Three And The Death Rattle showcases all that is compelling about rock ‘n’ roll by incorporating noise/garage rock, blues, and punk and steamrolling it into a striking and seismic sound that is stark, intense, driving, and tuneful."

Hula Girls Lo-fi/indie/punk/garage noisy and energetic bangers to make you do a little dance.

Nancy Dawkins Music Beautiful melodic singer songwriter Nancy Dawkins will be opening the evening. "Nancy Dawkins, her voice is to die for and her writing craft is phenomenal" ... Dean Jackson, BBC Radio
