NELL BRYDEN+ ROBERT LANE

**Please note this a rescheduled date. Tickets for the original date of 17th January will still remain valid**

Nell Bryden sings from the heart and shoots from the hip. The blonde bombshell from Brooklyn has the urban lifestyle in her blood, the country/folk spirit of Americana in her soul, and the great American songbook in her head.

She’s a native New Yorker with a fondness for old-time music and vintage clothes, who’s seen the world and absorbed its musical influences: country and jazz, blues and soul, and more besides. You can hear as much of it – or as little – as you care to find in her music. Because, for all its familiar scents and flavours, her songs are distinctly her own.

Following the release of her second album, ‘Shake the Tree’, earlier this year, Nell has picked up regular Radio 2 rotation, as well slots at Bestival, Guilfest and BBC Proms in the Park.

Nell will tour supporting Jools Holland in December 2012, including a prestigious slot at the Royal Albert Hall, and returns in January 2013 for her first UK headlining dates in support of the new album.

“While such a seal of approval might suggest that Bryden is in the same league as Katie Melua or Duffy, she possesses a lot more depth than those artists have so far appeared capable of mining.” – BBC
