THE BASEMENT SESSIONS at Green Note is a 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…. Anne-Marie Sanderson + Alx Green + more tbc
Anne-Marie Sanderson is a British singer-songwriter, recently returned to the UK after five years in America, where she released two EPs and toured up and down the west coast. Her most recent EP, Shadows & Sparks, explores twin-opposite themes of light-dark, mystery-certainty, love-loss, with songs arranged for a luscious chamber-folk ensemble.
Following in the tradition of timeless singer-songwriters, her music is often compared to that of Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, but fans and critics alike recognise that Anne-Marie Sanderson is all her own.
Alx Green is a singer-songwriter from Chester in the North West of England. Seamlessly fusing modern folk music with dynamic vocals, invigorating melodies and percussive finger-tapping his songs have a fresh new feel but retain that classic songwriter sound.
Alx has released several demo EP’s and embarked on a successful three month European tour in 2015. His first studio EP was released in 2016 and got to number 2 in the iTunes Singer/Songwriter pre-order charts. The tracks have also seen radio play on BBC Radio 2, BBC 6Music, BBC Radio Merseyside and BBC Introducing being labelled as ‘Sublime sounds’.
