Tuesday 7th May – Michaela Fedeczko
Soul singer Michaela has worked alongside top musicians in a variety of projects all over the country and overseas. After a hugely successful launch gig for her debut single ‘Nothing’ she has embarked on her solo project. Performing a mixture of her own compositions, including her newly released single ‘Leave her sleeping’, alongside a carefully chosen set of old soul, jazz and catchy pop arrangements. For this duo appearance her glistening soul vocals will be complimented by Sean Snook on Guitar. Come and enjoy an evening of live music and delicious food and wine at The Cellar Wine Bar.
In another life when I toured around the US I was always amazed at the talent that performed in local bars and restaurants, sometimes to only a handful of people. Some of them, the performers that is, went on to become famous, think of Otis Redding and Little Richard from Macon Georgia Jamesetta Hawkins (Etta James) born to a 14 year old black prostitute in Los Angeles before going to live with her grandmother in San Francisco, a really suspicious start that.
The list is endless, but they all had to start somewhere. Since we at The Cellar started our music nights on a Tuesday over 2 years ago, I am thrilled by some of the local artists who appear. No they don’t come on stage with smoke machines and a 10 piece orchestra, they carry their own equipment and PA, even our very own 8 stone Alice who sings soul with such emotion that it belies her age and is backed by her boyfriend Harrisen on guitar.
Louise and John who are Sax in the City sing and play with an intensity and feeling that I feel privileged to hear. These and others are local artists with so much talent that they deserve a much larger audience and maybe one evening a modern day Ahmet Ertegun or Herb Abramson who together founded Atlantic Records in 1947 will visit The Cellar. In the meantime enjoy them while you can…..
