Event description

Description

A Nashville style writers round in the heart of London, bringing the best new and established songwriting talents together for a night of live music and the stories behind their songs.

Two Ways Home will be hosting this event with:

Olivia Lane:

Olivia Lane is dynamic, smart, funny and above all, an entertainer. Much of her confidence is rooted in her Texas upbringing. Her mother was a local Texas country singer that inspired her to sing and start writing songs at age 16. Olivia ultimately landed in Nashville, where her self-titled debut EP stirred interest beyond Music Row in 2016. Olivia bids influence to Linda Ronstadt and Carole King with the production and energy of Shania Twain. “If I have to categorize myself I’d have to say I’m pop country. Growing up I was a musical melting pot, but country music always had the lyrics that drew me in." Most recently, Lane has been writing and recording new music with plans to release one song at a time directly to her fans, which Lane did with her last release of 'Devil and You' and is continuing to do with 'You Got Me.'

Jake Morrell:

Jake Morrell could have come straight out of Nashville, or even from the Californian sunshine, as his music suggests; but Jake is from Norfolk, England!


Jake was ‘discovered’ by Dermot O’Leary, who featured him on his Radio 2 Show. One influential listener just so happened to be Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis, who immediately asked Jake to perform at the iconic festival.

Jake recorded his debut single with London based producer Brett Shaw (Florence & The Machine, The Kooks & Dry the River). The song entitled "Wire and Thorns" reached No.2 in the iTunes country charts on the first day of release.
 This led to Jake being invited to perform at this year’s Country 2 Country festival, where he premiered his first major single, the appropriately titled ‘Englishman (Trying to Write a Country Song)’ – written with the Grammy-winning writer/producer Kipper. 


The reaction to the song put Jake firmly in line as one of the country’s favourite new male artists in the genre.This lead to a string of both solo and band shows and festivals throughout the summer with Jake showing himself to be as irresistible as a solo act as he is with his band.

The most exciting new development, however, is the new music that Jake has now recorded to launch the next phase of his career. This is led by a joyous forthcoming single, ‘Home’, written and produced with Rolling Stones keyboardist, Matt Clifford. With an evocative mix of Mumford & Sons, Eagles and even Springsteen, ‘Home’ is the definitive track that firmly stamps Jake Morrell’s name across the UK country music scene.

‘Home’ is due to be released in early November.

With a gig history that reads like a road atlas, Jake and the band have truly honed their craft and always leave you feeling joyous and wanting more!

Foreign Affairs:

wherever they go”Essentially Pop

Following the critically-acclaimed release of their latest single ‘Faded’, Bristol-based duo Foreign Affairs are set to release their highly-anticipated EP ‘The Old Fire Station’ on November 30th. Having established themselves as one of the most captivating live acts in recent years, supporting the likes of Frankie Ballard, Aaron Watson, Striking Matches, Margo Price and Larkin Poe, brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell have been hard at work in the studio and are excited to release the 6-track project, their first body of work since ‘The First’ EP back in 2015. Showcasing their gritty, powerful brand of Americana/Folk, ‘The Old Fire Station’ sets them up for a hugely successful 2019.

Weaving a range of influences with seamless harmonies and undeniably infectious melodies, the new EP displays the duo’s immense diversity and wide-spread appeal. Whether it’s the innocent, piano-led style of ‘I Won’t Let Go’, the punchy, indie-folk infused ‘Faded’ or the gentle, traditional-country sound of ‘Baby Come Home’, every track delivers on quality and great authenticity.

The duo broke onto the British music scene back in 2015 with the release of ‘Sell My Soul’, which received support from BBC Radio and landed them a spot at Glastonbury Festival. Since then, they’ve performed at the likes of Country2Country at The O2, Buckle & Boots Festival, Summertyne Festival and more, becoming a must-see act at events all over the UK. The powerful voice of Lawrence and the flawless harmonies from Adam, combined with their wonderfully intricate style of songwriting, has grabbed attention far and wide, and it’s no surprise that they were nominated as British Country Music’s Duo Of The Year for 2018.
