Bryony Sier 7PM
Bryony Sier is an acclaimed singer-songwriter from South Wales. Still only in her early twenties, the soulful power and maturity of Bryony’s voice has already caught the attention of some of the biggest names in the music industry. She has worked with everyone from American folk legends Molly Tuttle and Rachel Baiman to producers and songwriters like Charlie Francis (High Llamas, R.E.M.), Amy Wadge (Lewis Watson, Ed Sheeran) and Rick Wakeman. Over recent years Bryony has regularly played on regional and national radio (e.g. for Bethan Elfyn, BBC Radio 1) and she has performed everywhere from Swn Festival and HUB Festival to Between the Trees and Tadstock Festival (Oxford). Her unique sound/vibe draws upon a wide variety of influences but is shaped especially by her love of American folk, blues, soul, gospel and country music. She is also a big fan of contemporary artists such as Sigrid and Tom Odell. Bryony is currently working on a new EP which is due for release in spring/summer 2019.

Hailing from the cultural and creative melting pot that is England’s capital city, Mangoseed comprise four musicians of Trinidadian, Jamaican, Australian and Irish descent. Perhaps no surprise, then, that this multinational troupe produce an enthralling fusion of global sounds, mashing up ska and soca, jungle and funk, rock and punk, all of it high-energy and unfailingly danceable. Originally formed by vocalist Nicholai La Barrie and guitarist Karlos Coleman, Mangoseed became a fully functioning act via the additions of Richard Hardy on bass and Sam Campbell on drums, configuring a pulsating punky-reggae repertoire that was captured on their self-released 2014 album, ‘Basquiat’, which earned impossible-to-really-nail-down comparisons ranging from Bad Brains to Massive Attack. What’s not up for debate, though, is the thrilling energy of Mangoseed’s live performances, as demonstrated by the band shining on bills alongside Alabama Three and Manu Chao, in addition to regularly delighting a loyal fanbase around and beyond their Brixton homes. The new year comes as the group have a slew of fresh material to release – starting with the delicious ‘Lucy’ – tracks that are sure to form the bedrock of Mangoseed’s growth into a mighty musical force.
