NEW ROOTS PRESENTS… Lee Southall (The Coral) with support from Ady Johnson (solo)

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, LEE SOUTHALL brings a wealth of experience to his solo acoustic performance. As a founder member of eclectic Liverpool band The Coral, he’s already enjoyed a career that spans seven albums; a Mercury Prize nomination and a Music Producers Guild album of the year. His solo work hinges on finely crafted songwriting and virtuoso acoustic ability. Folk, pop, blues and country thread their way through songs that move from the melodic intricacy of Bert Jansch or Davey Graham, through to the raw sparseness of Karen Dalton or Townes Van Zandt. Currently residing on the West Yorkshire moors, Lee’s recently supported the likes of Blue Rose Code, Ryley Walker and Laura Marling at venues across the North.

London based singer songwriter ADY JOHNSON has shared the stage with the likes of Willy Mason and Ben Howard. His accomplished, finely crafted style filters the distinctly English tones of Ray Davies and Steve Marriot through a classic, soulful acoustic folk style. His most recent release was recorded with Mercury nominated/ BBC award winning producer Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Tom Robinson) and brings together the soulful delivery and intimacy of Ady’s live performances.

“…if this is his musical CV – he’s got the job.”
