WK Presents: Morganway plus Special Guests
15 Feb 2020 7:45pm
Whiskey Kisses is proud to present the fantastic Morganway! Bringing their elecrtifying energy to the Santiago Bar stage, the 6 piece band is sure to bring an amazing night. With special guests Kira Mac and Isobel Holly ready to captivate everyone in the venue with their immense talent, join us for this evening of top notch music!
Morganway are a six-piece from East Anglia founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Throughout their early years the boys played in various bands but struggled to find a box to fit into. Too rock for folk, too pop for indie, too indie for country, or so it seemed. Choosing to follow their instincts rather than convention, they became Morganway and suddenly people started listening.
Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matt Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting. They've built this into a live show that in one moment is classic rock and the next mystical folk, catching the attention of Whispering Bob Harris and many others in the rising British Americana scene. Their collective obsession with ‘70s West Coast rock is also met with a love of Brit Rock, folk and modern Americana.
Kira Mac is an up and coming country singer/songwriter, she has performed on stages such as the o2 in London and gigged at venues across the country, whilst studying Music at the British institute of modern music in Manchester.
she is also currently working in the prestigious parr street studios on her original songs for her upcoming EP “Storm on the horizon” due to be released November this year.
Kira has played at a number of festivals this year after being invited to play and share the stage with huge UK country music artists such as Gary Quinn and Ward Thomas.
She has a lot of great things coming up she will be supporting Thorne Hill, on tour in November and also next march she will be supporting Nashville based country artist Caitlin on her UK tour.
She is set to be on festivals all around the country again next year which will all lead up to her 2 week tour In Nashville next June, to play festivals and shows at the legendary bluebird, tooties orchid lounge and Station Inn and to take the next step in her musical career.
Hailing from Bath, Isobel Holly is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter, whose exciting blend of country, rock and soul makes for a truly captivating live performance. Influences such as Fleetwood Mac and Carrie Underwood are reflected in her heartfelt song-writing and powerful vocals. This February, see her play live as part of her UK Tour on the back of her debut album release. She'll be sharing the stage with her incredible band, all of whom study alongside her at the Royal Northern College of Music. Expect intense guitar solo sections combined with delicate lyricism.
