A star-studded night of music and laughter in London to raise funds for the Organ Donation Charity Live Life Then Give Life.
Since her 1997 single ‘Torn’ propelled her from the popular Australian soap Neighbours to a successful international singing career, Natalie Imbruglia has sold over 12 million hit albums worldwide. Natalie’s latest work reflects the tutelage of a string of prestigious artists, writers and producers such as Chris Martin, Brian Eno, Ben Hillier (Blur, Depeche Mode, The Horrors) and Dave McCracken (Beyonce, Ian Brown). As a result, her latest sounds are raw, sassy, sexy, humorous, elegant and also deeply personal. Natalie is also a successful actress, model and a devoted charity campaigner.
As an observational stand-up Ed Byrne is unrivalled, turning colouful anecdotes into eloquent wit with aplomb. A Mock the Week favourite, Ed’s sparkling style has led to huge international acclaim, barnstorming performances and regular TV and radio appearances in the UK and the US.
Vancouver native Glenn is a cool, laid back performer who has been a headline act on the UK circuit and at festivals worldwide for several years. His material is surprisingly political and hard hitting for a man who gives the impression that he couldn’t care less about anything. Never afraid to spring a surprise or two, he adapts beautifully to an audience and has all the comedy tools at his fingertips.
The Yeah Yous:
With the release of the stunning 15 Minutes and Getting Up With You, The Yeah You's are off to a flying start. They are currently Album of the Week on Radio 2 with their debut offering LOOKING THROUGH YOU and attracting support from the likes of Chris Moyles who described their music as "So good it's Robbie William's Sing When You're Winning territory....'". Mojo music mag even described their debut album as "like a Greatest Hits" package. Signed to Universal Island records, the duo Mike Kintish and Nick Ingram, who met when former actor Nick auditioned for Mike's play, are set for big things over the next year with their upbeat melodic "you'll need a trained pyschotherapist to get these tunes out of your mind" pop
Mr Robin K:
Mr Robin K is practically one of the newest faces in comedy. After years of watching stand ups, writing songs and thinking to himself "If only I could combine a way to do both these things and make money from it" Robin K feels that he might just have discovered the answer. Formally a singer/songwriter trying to make it big on MySpace with teen angst filled piano ballads about love, he has now turned his clever lyrical delivery, diverse musical style and razor sharp wit (if not cut throat it is certainly like a five day old Bic) to the art of musical comedy. Heralded as "A Tim Minchin in the making" (minus the big hair and eyeliner) Robin K is making his debut performance tonight, on his 25th birthday no less and hopes that this is the start of something special.
Singer/Songwriter Susanna Cork is hotly tipped as one of the UK’s rising stars. With her incredible vocal talent and ability to give life to a lyric, it’s plain to see why Cameron Mackintosh chose Susanna to play the role of Fantine in the West End’s Les Miserables.
Susanna has always enjoyed singing the melodies and lyrics of the worlds greatest songwriters, but her ultimate goal has always been to use ‘that voice’ on her own songs, drawing from her own emotions.
Now, 2 years spent developing her own original sound, Susanna is busy recording her debut album and signed to 24/7 Management. How does the album sound? Like Susanna’s voice – very honest. Susanna will soon be out ‘on the road’ performing her latest songs. Please drop by her myspace site at www.myspace.com/susannacork to check out future gig dates - free downloads coming soon.
