We are excited to announce a Nashville inspired ‘In the round’ gig featuring three incredible artists:

Kezia Gill – Pulling influences from a wide range of genres including Folk & Irish, Country, Rock and Blues, her sound is completely unique. She performs all over the UK, as well as the world, including previous shows in Europe, Australia and America. Her individual and uncomparable style is not only evident in her original material, but laced throughout her wide repertoire of classic covers. With her impressive vocal range, energy on stage and multi-instrumental talent, she makes every song her own. Kezia also was Winner of Best Female at the 2019 British CMA Awards.

Hayley McKay– An accomplished and insightful songwriter, who effortlessly captures deep emotional sentiment with moving sincerity, she has co-written with twice Grammy-nominated songwriter Jan Buckingham (Whitney Houston) in Nashville, performed in Bob Harris’s home studio for his Under the Apple Tree sessions, and has supported Tom Jones, Albert Lee, Scouting for Girls, Martha Reeves and Hazel O’Connor. Hayley is releasing new material this year, and is especially looking forward to performing at The British Country Festival in September this year followed by C2C: Country-to-Country at the O2 Arena in London and Glastonbury when they return in 2022. Her next single Wild West will be released 2nd April on all digital platforms.

Biddy RonelleBiddy Ronelle is a singer songwriter based in the Midlands UK. Biddy’s debut EP came out on the 3rd January 2020 and reached #1 in the iTunes Country Album chart and also hit #58 in the All Genre chart to amazing reviews. A voice akin to Melissa Etheridge and Brandi Carlisle and strong hooks and anthemic chorus’s. Ridiculously new to the UK Americana scene, she has made quite an impression on the national scene. Biddy’s debut single “Raising Hell” reached #3 in the UK Country Charts and her follow up single “Run” reached the top 10 to critical acclaim. In 2020 Biddy’s debut EP “Aftershocks” hit #1 and the follow up single “Thrill” also hit #1 cementing her place in British country music.  

Music in the bar from Lockdown Country Radio DJ Scott Wetherill.
