HOME Sound Sessions 2021

Saturday 11 December 2021

Join us for an evening of celebration and good vibes as three Black artists from across the North West take centre stage to perform back-to-back performances.  

 

Taking to the stage will be multi-faceted vocal artist Yemi Bolatiwa. The London-born soul singer is a frequent face of Manchester’s live music scene and was recently played on Radio 1 with performances on BBC Introducing Manchester and BBC 1Xtra. As a live act, she writes and performs tracks with RnB melodies, deep soulful vox over Hip-hop, DnB & Garage inspired grooves. 

SheBeKeke likes to turn her poems into songs. Not all words can live on the page. Someone called her sound “gospel folk” once but she isn’t too sure if she agrees. She has supported artists such as Kae Tempest, The Last Poets, Saul Williams and OSHUN. Her work has been presented at high profile venues and platforms such as Tate Modern, Blue Dot Festival and Glastonbury’s Rum Shack Stage. 

Nigerian born, Manchester-based, alternative Soul & Pop artist Zahyón is a singer/songwriter and musician whose approach to music has already positioned him as ‘one to watch’ amongst music industry players. His debut single ‘Amen’ was featured on BBC Introducing, while single releases like ‘Captured My heart’ and ’Calvary’ showcase his versatility as an artist and have featured on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 4. Zahyón’s talents have recently gained him a spot on The Voice UK on ITV, coached by none other than the legend himself Sir Tom Jones.
