100 Wardour St presents New York’s renowned vocal group Naturally 7 live on stage on Wednesday 18th Oct!
Performing their only UK date of their Both Sides Now European Tour right in the heart of Soho, Naturally 7 will bring with them their unique, signature style called “vocal play” which according to group leader Roger Thomas is “the art of becoming an instrument using the human voice to create the sound”. The group simulate the sounds of an instrumental band using only their voices, mouths and distortion effects.
Having previously performed with Coldplay and Michael Bublé, the performance coincides with the European leg of their Both Sides Now tour, where they will perform hits from their seventh studio album of the same name. The album represents the ongoing development of the “band without a band”. The songs are driven by warm, rich harmonies and the unique ability to perform a variety of instruments using only their voices that Naturally 7 have become synonymous with.
The show will feature performances from their vast repertoire, including songs from their new album which features classics from Ewan MacColl’s ‘The First Time, Ever I Saw Your Face’ (as made popular by Roberta Flack) to Coldplay’s ‘Fix You’ and the title-track: Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both Sides Now’. The group will also perform their original song, which always closes their live-show: ‘Caught in the Moment’.
With support from DECOSTA BOYCE
Sly and The Family Stone, Funkadelic, D’Angelo and Prince are just a few of the influences UK soul singer Decosta Boyce cites as his inspirations for his latest album ‘Electrick Soul’. It’s an album flowing with banging melodies and funky grooves that just scream summer.
Born in Stevenage and brought up by his single mum, there was never a day that went by when music wasn’t playing in the background in their house. Raised on a diet of the soul greats such as Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye, this music was to play a prolific part in inspiring Decosta to be the artist he is today.
Decosta has landed amazing support slots for the likes of the Everly Brothers, Mica Paris, Beverley Knight, Texas and Roachford, to name just a few. He has also performed on ITV’s ‘Let It Shine’ playing guitar for Beverly Knight and become one of the main vocalists touring with the deeply respected British-American soul band Heatwave and on October 18th, will take to 100 Wardour St’s historic stage in support of Naturally 7!
Doors 7pm (house welcome drink from 7-8pm) / Special guest support act from 8pm / Naturally 7 stage time: 9pm
