About this event:

Live From the Living Room, Burrowbridge

Jake Martin’s sound is a distinctively energetic and engaging blend of brash acoustic punk, and melodic indie folk. He intelligently blends tales of life, love, and the road, with dark satire, politics, and his own cheeky brand of cider fuelled humour. Add Jake’s witty ability to captivate and animate any room of strangers, his memorable sing along anthems, and the occasional bit of furniture climbing, and the result is an electrifying ‘every show like it’s the last’ performance.

B-Sydes (AKA Ben Sydes) became a solo singer-songwriter after becoming disillusioned with the unpredictability of playing in band after band. He decided to strike out on his own in 2009 and is yet to look back. His first EP Handshakes Turn to Headlocks (2010) proved to be a sampler of what he was capable of. This was followed up shortly after with his second EP Wrecked Vessels (2011), a release that showed all the progression you would expect from an artist growing both in confidence and stature.

Live From The Living Room stemmed from hosting a house show for Nick Parker a couple of years ago. The thought behind it being to give local and touring acts the chance to do something a little different and get up close and personal with their audience.

All shows are entry by fair donation, and all money taken goes straight to the acts – you’re also welcome to bring your own refreshments, too. In the past 12 months they’ve hosted acts as diverse as full-on Punk bands, to ex-Glastonbury headliners. All are welcome to attend, just drop them a line via their Facebook page here to let them know you’re coming.
