For International Women's Day, Lady Nade has curated a special Sound Lounge celebration where she will be joined by Katey Brooks, Holly Carter and Katie Nicholas for a sensational in-the-round night of songs and stories.

Lady Nade is continuing her rise as a multi-award winning eclectic Folk and Americana singer-songwriter. Her songs carry messages of love, loss, hope, relationships, friendships and the positive connection between music, well-being, mental health and community.

She pours creativity into every song, often lavishing them with a recipe to match.

Her third album ‘Willing’ entered both the official Folk and Americana charts on its release. With the title track Single winning ‘UK song of the Year’ in the 2022 UK Americana Awards. Gaining plaudits on Ralph McLean (Northern Ireland & BBC Radio Ulster), Clive Anderson (Loose Ends, BBC Radio 4), Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2 and 6), Cerys Matthews (BBC Radio 2 and Radio 6).

Her upcoming fourth album ‘Conversations’ explores self expression,community, breaking the norm, vulnerability, identity & recovery. Lady Nade has always advocated the positive connection between music and well-being using her platform to raise awareness, support and practice equality and collaboration.

Well-being and mental health is sown into everything she does. Named one of Bristol's most influential women, she creates a communal experience that everyone can enter into on their own terms, performing in venues across her native city of Bristol, her work developed into a calling to connect with her fans on a deeper level and help lead them through life’s complicated tapestry with the healing power of music.

Holly Carter won Instrumentalist of the Year 2023 at the UK Americana Music Awards and has a further nomination for 2024. Well known at the Sound Lounge for her performances alongside Hannah White and Michele Stodart, Holly has established a reputation as one of Bristol's leading fingerstyle guitarists and one of the UK's only professional pedal steel players. Holly is also a gifted songwriter and solo performer. Her songs weave joyously catchy melodies with lyrics that pay homage to a diverse collection of musical and personal heroes including Gillian Welch, Paul Simon and The Manic Street Preachers.

Katey Brooks is a rebellious artist that resists formula and defies classification with a sound blending folk, blues, soul and country. Boasting famous admirers including Joss Stone, Katey has recorded with Bill Wyman (ex-Rolling Stones) and Paloma Faith at Abbey Road for BBC2's Children In Need single and has shared the bill with a host of big names including Texas, Nick Mulvey and Mike and The Mechanics. Her last album, Revolute was released in 2019 to worldwide acclaim.

Katie Nicholas is an award winning singer-songwriter from Liverpool. Her EP, Feather, released in 2023 showcases her as a distinctive folk artist, skilful guitarist and fearless in bending any genre to suit her message. Her sound is reminiscent of timeless artists like Eva Cassidy, Joni Mitchell, Kate Rusby and Katie Melua. Katie was showcased by Whispering Bob Harris on his 'Under The Apple Tree' event in Nashville.and last year sold out her first headline show at the Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room.

With soothing words and melodies that nourish the mind and body though life's complicated tapestry, weaving folk into Americana, her performances are like a reunion.

    Continuing to champion the positive connection between music, well-being and the importance of equality and diversity within the arts. Lady Nade’s nominated song, ‘Ain’t One Thing’, promotes positive body image, anti-bullying and anti-shaming through musical expression. The release continues to be a huge success reaching the hearts of so many gaining airplay on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC Radio Wiltshire and BBC Radio Bristol as well as several online publications including Folk Radio, Americana-UK, Black Ballad UK and Holler.

    Lady Nade started writing poems and songs as a form of healing from grief, performing in venues across her native city of Bristol, her work developed into a calling to connect with her fans on a deeper level and help lead them through life’s complicated tapestry with the healing power of music.

  • Katey Brooks

    Katey Brooks

    Contemporary Folk

    For better or worse, it’s hard to imagine a songwriter with a deeper well of life experience to spill onto her lyric-sheet. Katey’s troubled childhood in a religious cult, her debilitating illness in her twenties and the shattering loss of her mother and her best friend: all were blows that might have swallowed up a lesser character. But music was the balm, and it was always made on her terms – evidenced by Katey’s early decision to reject a place at the star-making BRIT School and walk her own path.

    First steps on Bristol’s open-mic scene pricked up ears. Show-stealing performances at Glastonbury, WOMAD and the Paralympics spread the word. Top-dollar recording sessions with Brian May, Bill Wyman, Paloma Faith and Joss Stone were offset by guitar-slinging gigs in squats, dive-bars and the occupied West Bank, where raw songs were born amongst the rubble.

    Now, following up 2016’s acclaimed I Fought Lovers EP, all of Katey’s scars and redemptions are poured undiluted into the new material of REVOLUTE, inviting all who hear it to wear their pasts on their sleeves without shame. Written and self-produced by Katey herself – with a beautiful and intimate mix from Paul Quinn – these eleven songs run the gamut of genre, but are bound together by their emotional honesty. The standard is set by opener Never Gonna Let Her Go: haunted yet rousing, this gospel-soul single hums with defiance as Katey kicks out against past shamings for her sexuality.

    All Of Me is a wrench of a breakup ballad, pairing sparse guitar with intimate vocals, and slow-burning to a gospel-flavoured conclusion. We The People offers a moody stomp and a salute to a lover who’s moved on, while Golden Gun is a glowering standout, with choppy guitars and a lyric full of emotional violence, Katey’s voice soaring as the song escapes its moorings.

    Already released as a single to blanket acclaim, In Your Arms is an intimate moment, with Katey’s almost-operatic voice and shimmering guitar locked in unison. The Sweetest Things has folky fingerpicking and a nakedly honest vocal that reminds us that “sometimes the sweetest things were meant to pass you by”. And on an album of personal truths, Katey isn’t afraid to turn her observational powers on the social landscape, with the impassioned soul of Burn It Down reminding women in the #MeToo era that victimhood is not their fault.

    Jeremiah is a beautiful piano-led ballad that sails to the stars, while Call Out is a stunning moment of quiet defiance (“Don’t let anybody take you down”). Even as the album plays out, there’s no let-up in emotional intensity. In Light Of You combines ethereal guitar with treasured memories of a departed loved one – then throws a curveball as it breaks into a double-time groove. Finally, there’s traditional standard Trouble So Hard, here utterly owned by Katey, with ghostly chords and a vocal that never stops building.

    REVOLUTE isn’t just an album – it’s an awakening for both artist and listener. And as Katey embarks on a tour of select venues throughout late-2019, the wider music scene will be watching the rise of this once-a-generation talent. “Completing these tracks is not only the closure of a difficult chapter for me,” she says, “but the exciting beginning of something new, with my freedom finally found…”
