~~FAY HALLAM is a hugely respected Hammond organist, singer and songwriter, with over 10 albums to her credit and a career already spanning over thirty years.
She first came to prominence in Wolverhampton Mod-popsters, Makin' Time, in the early 1980's, along with a pre-Charlatans Martin Blunt.
She and Martin, along with drummer John Brookes, then went on to form The Gift Horses, which were the embryonic beginnings of The Charlatans, which Martin and John then went on to form.

Fay’s next project was being the vocalist and organist in the now legendary, Prime Movers. This took on a rockier more progressive sound, including the 'Earth Church' LP, which was hailed by the now-defunct Sounds Music Weekly, as LP of the year.
Since then, Fay has gone on to make over 10 albums, as Phaze, The Fay Hallam Trinity, and then as a solo artist, initially on the Blow Up label, with her 2015 album release, "Corona". Her second solo album release, "House Of Now" was released on Well Suspect Records in October 2016, received rave reviews, and gained airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC London.

Most recently, Fay collaborated with Swedish number 1 selling artist Magnus Carlson on his 2018 album, A Nordic Soul, co-writing two numbers with Magnus, including the single, “Now That It’s Over”, produced by ex-Paul Weller bassist, Andy Lewis. (Andy also now plays bass for Fay in both the studio and her live band, as well as handling production duties) This single received huge airplay on BBC Radio 2, and was played back-to-back, and championed by Craig Charles, on his BBC 6 Music Funk & Soul Show. Fay also played the organ and sang in Magnus’s live band, for his sell-out Swedish tour, in the summer of 2018.

Always with one eye on keeping things fresh, and developing her ever-evolving sound, Fay's current live incarnation, The Fay Hallam Group, comprising of Andy Lewis on bass, her son Josh Day on piano, Kieran McAleer on drums, Jim Bishop on guitar, and the brand new brass section of Angus Law on sax and Kenneth Yarham on trumpet, have just completed their latest album, "Propeller", which is due for release on Well Suspect Records in Spring 2019, accompanied by a string of live UK shows, beginning in February, right through to April.

Fay's current live set features songs from her entire back-catalogue, from classic Makin' Time favourites, right up to the present day.

Seeing The Fay Hallam Group live, expect an energetic and fun, Hammond organ and brass-driven, rhythm and soul-based journey through Fay's critically acclaimed musical career.

SUPPORT:
MISS PERCEPTIONS - Some ex members of Trambeat now with a brand new band, new songs and a new sound! Expect an uplifting, dynamic and big Soul sound guaranteed to make you wanna shuffle your feet!

THE ADAPTONES - This is a special one off reunion! They were a hugely popular instrumental band on the Mod scene over the last 10 years or so led by Paul Brown's dynamic keyboards sound. The crowd usually sing the lyrics!
