Stories are the reason you listen to songs, Django Rhinestone has plenty to sell like a traveling circus of tales that take you someplace else.
But are the stories some sort of snake oil or are they real? You’ll have to decide: it’s a long tradition of country music to blur the two.
Snake oil at its best makes you feel like you’ve found the answer, Django Rhinestone might be it.
Django Rhinestone will be supported by a set each from songwriters Fox Rivera and Evie Moran.
Described as “a superb new voice” by BBC Radio Merseyside’s Dave Monks, Fox Rivera is a Liverpool based songwriter who released his debut EP ‘The Stranger’ in January 2021. Influenced by folk legends such as John Martyn and Nick Drake he combines finger picking guitar with heartfelt vocals into songs full of the emotional highs and lows of life. Primarily a guitarist, Fox went solo after a flatmate heard him singing through the bedroom wall and asked who it was. Selected to be played on radio by Jermaine Foster via BBC Introducing in May, Fox is currently finishing off his next batch of songs to be debuted across the northwest and beyond throughout 2021.
Described by Getintothis as having ‘the voice to light up your life’, Evie Moran is a 19 year old singer-songwriter from Liverpool. With delicate vocals and an intimate style, Evie’s stripped back sets often have the effect of quieting a room and captivating an audience. Reflecting influences like Billie Marten and The Staves, her carefully crafted originals tell stories of love, dreams and nature. Evie has previously appeared at events including Folk on the Dock Festival, Threshold Festival and FOCUS Wales and has received much support from BBC Introducing Merseyside. Evie’s new single 'Dream' is out now on Bandcamp and streaming platforms.
Prior to this performance, complimentary food and drinks will be available to ticket holders from 40 mins prior to the advertised performance start time.
