The Showdown - Belle And The Busker
We stay local for our next LCM featured band the wonderful London based Belle and the Busker. At the very beating heart of the band are a duo, singer-songwriters Ciara Rafferty and Daniel Spiller. I had the great pleasure of meeting Daniel recently, thanks for the great introduction Russell John Swallow :) Our LCM #TrackOfTheDay is a great live version of 'The Showdown' recorded at the Pool Studio towards the end of last year. https://youtu.be/sJWE0a-uy9w
The band will be performing at The Pheasantry in Chelsea on the 25th April.
They have been described as contemporary country/folk but if you dig a little deeper you'll find an Irish singer mixing melodic songwriting with mellifluous harmonies and slick musicianship.
The band has been championed by Janice Long on BBC Radio 2 with several plays of their track 'Takes Two' which has also been a feature on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio London. You can hear them regularly busking along the Southbank and tube network in London.
The band is currently working on a unique recording project with a fabulous team of musicians and Label Producer Rupert Christie.
