We are all in the basement, but some of us are looking up at the stars… Stargazing is all about spotting those stellar new artists and giving them a place to shine each month. Expect some unlikely constellations where talent might be the only thing they have in common. And all from the subterranean comfort of the charming Green Note basement.
Tonight featuring Alex Fox + Dolly Mavies + Maddie Morris
Hailing from Essex, Alex Fox allies traditional songwriting and arrangements with contemporary themes – not too surprising given his background of classical piano and growing up in alternative and indie rock bands. Add his unique, soaring vocals and a dynamic mix is achieved.
Alex Fox has been compared to Morrissey, The Divine Comedy, Rae Morris and many more wide-ranging artists, though no comparison has ever really hit the nail on the head. We believe this is why people come back to watch and listen again and again – there is no one quite like Alex Fox‘
Dolly Mavies is a Singer/Songwriter based between Oxford and London; with Welsh roots and soulful sounds, Dolly’s music captivates, with haunting vocals and ambient tones. Her combination of folk, soul and acoustic guitar create an emotive and poetic soundscape channelling life, love and loss.
Dolly Mavies has been likened to artists such as: Florence and the Machine, London Grammar and Daughter.
Maddie is a contemporary folk artist who writes and preforms her own music, her inspirations include Joni Mitchell, Ani Difranco, and Anais Mitchell. Her most recent EP entitled ‘walking forward’ tackles issues surrounding woman’s rights, LGBT activism and mental illness. Her music is insightful, haunting and poetic.
