London-based kiwi artist, Bridget Walsh, has launched a new series of events, showcasing womxn-led artists and projects. As part of a three month residency at East London venue, the Servant Jazz Quarters, Bridget’s new project, 10:32, is curating a series of three 'triangle’ shows, with each show featuring three bands/projects all being led or produced by womxn around the UK.
10:32 features Lyle Barton on keys, Radovan Brtko on drums, Digby Lovatt on bass and Bridget on vocals. 2018 saw the band debut at the Isle of Wight Festival, followed by a headline tour of Aotearoa, along with studio sessions in the UK, NZ and the USA. For fans of artists including D’Angelo, Hiatus Kaiyote, Kimbra, Tom Misch, Moonchild and more, 10:32’s booty-shaking soul-pop explores elements of hiphop, jazz, breakbeat, drum & bass, r&b and neo-soul, but isn’t afraid of a hardcore-style breakdown, or an extended synth solo.
Originally from Tāmaki Makaurau, Bridget has been touring with UK bands since 2013, taking the stage at a number of iconic global venues and festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Sono Centrum, Latitude, Estragon Club, Subsonic and the Edinburgh Fringe. Lyle is a Guildhall Jazz grad, who’s playing with emerging UK artists including Poppy Ajudha and Emma-Jean Thackray. Radovan is originally from Slovakia, where he started touring with bands in his early teens, and Digby performs around the world with artists including James Vickery, Sody and Kelis.
The first triangle event is on Tuesday 30th April at Servant Jazz Quarters in London, with a line-up featuring 10:32, Call Me Unique (Birmingham) and one more act TBA. More details can be found on Bridget’s facebook page: www.facebook.com/lovefrombridget
