Soundcrash presents Ghostpoet live at the Hackney Empire. Obaro Ejimiwe, aka Ghostpoet, laughs when he remembers how Gilles Peterson "took a risk on a random maverick" back in 2010 by signing him to the Radio 1 DJ's Brownswood imprint. Within a year, that risk paid off: Ghostpoet's debut album, Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, marked him out as one of the most distinct, uncategorisable and forward-thinking voices to emerge in British music this decade, and it was rewarded with a surprise Mercury Prize nomination in 2011. It was a sudden rise for a man who for whom news of a record deal came in the same week that he was made redundant from his office job in insurance. Two years on, having moved on from Brownswood to PIAS, Ghostpoet's creativity has blossomed even more. On his second album, Some Say I So I Say Light, he pushes even further in all directions than on Peanut Butter Blues, mixing the abstract and the concrete with uncanny skill. With his live shows causing a stir wherever they go we can't wait to see what he has in store for us at the stunning Hackney Empire in October.

+ Very Special Guest
John Mayall was, as a child, influenced by such greats as Leadbelly, Albert Ammons, Pinetop Smith, and Eddie Lang. From the age of 13 he taught himself to play and develop his own style with the aid of a neighbour's piano, borrowed guitars, and secondhand harmonicas. John met his soulmate in Eric Clapton, who had quit the Yardbirds in favour of playing the blues. This historic union culminated in the first hit album for John’s band, the Bluesbreakers, and resulted in worldwide legendary status. A succession of great musicians defined their artistic roots under John's leadership, and he became well known for discovering new talent. As sidemen left to form their own groups, others took their places. Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood became Fleetwood Mac. Andy Fraser formed Free, and Mick Taylor joined the Rolling Stones. As Eric Clapton has stated, "John Mayall has actually run an incredibly great school for musicians."
Boogie Woogie. Jools Holland needs little introduction. In 1973 he met up with Chris Difford and Glenn Tilbrook and formed Squeeze and with hits like 'Cool for Cats' and 'Up the Junction' Squeeze achieved spectacular success.

This has evolved into a powerful and disciplined twelve-piece band, capable of selling out hundreds of shows a year all over Britain and Europe.
Kate's singing career started at the age of 15 when she spent two years singing with the all-women barber shop group 'The City Charmers', resulting in a wealth of attention which included appearing in the 1990 LWT Arts Festival and winning Sky TV's Star Search. On leaving school Kate began her jazz apprenticeship singing in bars an jazz clubs around Bologna and London until she was 19, when she returned to education, studying English at Birmingham University. Her studies, however, were increasingly fitting around an escalating demand for her singing, including regular spots at Birmingham's main jazz clubs, including 'Ronnie Scott's' and regular trips down to London to take up such invitations as singing with the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra in Regents Park in 1996 and enjoying regular spots at Lenny Beige's infamous 'Regency Rooms', at 'Madame Jo Jo's' and at the likes of 'L'Odeon', 'Quaglino's' and 'Mezzo'.
