I went backstage at the O2 Academy to meet Charlie & Lucy straight after their support performance on tour with Snarky Puppy.

We talked Charlie’s unusual, incredible playing style & many-stringed guitar varieties, and Lucy’s journey to jazz singer & solo artist after years backing Rod Stewart in Las Vegas.

I also spoke with Bristol-based Americana singer/songwriter Elles Bailey about her rigorous touring schedule, balancing carbon footprints on intercontinental tours & how surprisingly sweet it is that her brother’s office uses her album as its hold music.
