Seven Miles Out has had a longstanding association with the Stockport based Wellspring Homeless charity hosting music evenings and events to raise funds for the charity.
On Friday 7th December Seven Miles Out Records presented an evening of amazing music in the beautiful surroundings of St Mary’s Parish Church headlined by BARRATT to celebrate the release of his debut single ‘Home’.
The evening was hosted in association with Fab Music Store who supplied all the technical equipment free of charge. The event was free to attend with voluntary donations to The Wellspring and drew an audience of over 200 people.
Opening the evening was Dr Uke frontman Howard Harcourt who performed a mesmerising set which included a stunning version of Song to the Siren accompanied on ukulele. Howard’s voice has such an emotional quality and he always draws you into his performance.
Next up was young singer-songwriter Liv May accompanied by her Dad Phil Mealey on guitar. Liv May has a beautiful warm tone to her voice and a startling maturity beyond her years likening her to a young Karen Carpenter or Jacqui Abbott. With her engaging voice and classic songwriting style, Liv May is a talent just waiting to be discovered.
KAMES led by the talented Kamey McNamara with James on bass and Charlotte on saxophone entertained everyone with a great set. Kames give their songs a classic timeless feel and bring a feel good factor to all their performances.
The headline act BARRATT performed an uplifting set with his band that resonated throughout the lofty heights of St Mary’s Church. BARRATT’s songs have an intensity that demand your attention, harnessing powerful energy and raw emotion in equal measure. Included in the set were tracks from the Barratt CD ‘Into Your Arms’, ‘Waiting’ and the anthemic debut single ‘Home’.
The evening was such a success that there are plans to showcase more local live performers at St Mary’s Church in 2019.
