Black History Month Celebration – a live music event with Nottingham Contemporary
The University of Nottingham and Nottingham Contemporary present a celebration music event for Black History Month
Joy Mumford’s beautifully melodic songs and carefully crafted lyrics show not only the true depth of Mumford as an artist, but the whimsical and humorous side of her personality. Her unique soul-folk vocal style combined with a strong love for expressing her personal experiences through writing has racked up an impressive number of YouTube video views – over 1,300,000 since creating her channel in 2010. Having performed at many big venues and festivals such as Dot To Dot, Barn on The Farm, and Splendour Festival, Joy is currently in the process of writing and recording her second EP.
Daisy Godfrey is Nottingham based artist who blends together Pop, RnB and Jazz music with the alternative twist from her guitarist Ryan Cornall. Her music and lyrics are based around the topics of Love, Heartache and Positivity. Daisy also takes influences from Lauryn Hill, Etta James and Amy Winehouse which together creates a smooth emotional and modern sound.
Often referred to as an unknown genre, toying and playing with peoples minds whilst still providing meaningful songs, If you are a fan of Bon Iver, Ben Howard, or even Matthew and the Atlas, you won’t be disappointed with Sawyer.
“Sawyer shares some depth and style with other singers of the same genre, like Iron and Wine. Saying that, I’d also compare the EP to other less obvious choices including Daughter and Alt-J, because of the ominous and raw feel of the tracks, with an added undertone of subtle, wavering electronic feels.” – Leftlion Magazine.
