About The Events
Emerging artist Jenny Colquitt encompasses a unique combination of Americana, indie and folk rock and pop.
Winner of the 2021/2022 FATEA ‘Female artist of the Year’ award and the 2020/2021 GSMC Award for best female solo singer/songwriter,Jenny’s music is described as fit for film and storytelling at its finest.
2022 saw her make her debut appearance at music festivals such as Glastonbury, Cornbury and Beardy Folk Festival.
She has a voice that uniquely combines the melodic undertones of artists such as Eva Cassidy and the rawness of Alanis Morissette.
She writes with soul, lyrical vulnerability and style to accompany her musicality both through keys and guitar. Jenny is the lead singer/songwriter of Americana Rock band ELY, another emerging act on the British music scene.
We are pleased to announce special guest Craig Gould will be supporting Jenny on the night!
Ain’t No Place to Hide is a musical masterpiece. There is no doubt that Craig is an accomplished artist, combining Folk & Americana with a hint of Country to create a real audio delight” – Music News Monthly
A brief history…
Craig Gould combines his “Beautiful songwriting” (Simon Fowler, Ocean Colour Scene) and “Powerful voice” (Mark Chadwick, Levellers) to entwine his listeners within his “Wonderfully crafted tales” (BBC Introducing)
Craig spent a decade of his earlier years in a band called Carousel Circus, playing on the bill with some fantastic established acts (Ocean Colour Scene, Levellers, The Rifles, Example, The Undertones, Bez from Happy Monday’s, Oysterband, Saw Doctors, 3 Daft Monkeys, Home Service, Flogging Molly, Maximo Park) at some of the UK’s greatest venues and festivals (Birmingham Symphony Hall, Camden Assembly, Islington Academy, Liverpool Cavern Club, Solfest, Bearded Theory, Timber). It was during this time that Craig’s talent for songwriting and storytelling truly came alive. Thunderous live shows and numerous live radio performances on BBC Introducing and Kerrang! Radio established Craig as one of the hottest new songwriters in the UK. He also beat Chuck Norris at darts with a Shanghai finish***
In 2014 he left the band to concentrate on a promising management career, but this progression came at a cost. In 2016 Craig collapsed at work and was later diagnosed with a severe mental breakdown and PTSD, a ‘burnout’ result after years of work within various management roles. It was in these darkest of times that Craig re-discovered his love for music. Songwriting became a tool to process what had happened. It helped him move forward and left him with a collection of songs offering insight and inspiration.
Fast forward to 2020 (Not the best year for a comeback!) and Craig was energised to perform and determined to inspire change. After 6 years away from the scene he took to the stage at the Nottingham Contemporary to open for indie band “The Swines” (fronted by Scott Bugg, brother of Jake Bugg) and to announce the launch of the Craig Gould Music Project – using his music to drive positive change towards mental health care within the UK.
