THE BASEMENT SESSIONS at Green Note is a new monthly night, filled with brilliant up-and-coming artists that you need to hear. Set in the intimate Basement space within this much-loved venue, you’ll hear the best of what the UK acoustic scene has to offer!
This month featuring…. Ruth and Natasha Collett + Sherika Sherard + Harry Pane
RUTH & NATASHA COLLETT
Formerly part of folky four piece The Keepsakes, sisterly duo Ruth and Natasha Collett are now playing just the two of them. Expect melodic tunes and blood harmonies…
Prepare to be challenged and positively moved as you experience the infectious creativity of Sherika Sherard. With a voice like velvet to deliver her positive outlook on life, this Singer-Songwriter never fails to warm and the hearts of Listeners.
Very recently legendary British soul and R&B singer Seal fell victim to her charm and decided to pay Sherika a surprise visit on the Waterloo Southbank, where she is known to regularly busk. Together they performed Marvin Gaye’s ‘I Heard It Through The Grapevine’ and Seals smash hit ‘Kiss From A Rose’. The duet was streamed live on Seal’s Facebook and was broadcasted on ITV News. Seal also set up a one to one Facebook live interview with Sherika back at his hotel to ensure Sherika was given a proper introduction to his fans.
Her rhymes speak with the authority of a seasoned wordsmith within tunes that are destined to become hugely familiar to anyone with an ear for melody and an emotional core.
