What an amazing Lazy Sunday we have for you on January 31st! Grammy Award nominee Amy Wadge and young genius troubadour Luke Jackson.

Amy Wadge, is one of the UK’s most prolific contemporary songwriters.

Over recent years, she has accumulated numerous cuts with emerging artists such as Lewis Watson, (Warner), Shannon Saunders, (Caroline) and Cyril Hahn, (PMR). She is currently co-writing with both new and established talent alike including; Janelle Monáe, Birdy, Keith Urban, Ms. Dynamite, Aquilo, Zak Abel, Dua Lipa, Aston Merrygold, Mahalia, Thomas J Speight and many more.

Amy’s most notable success to date comes from her long established writing partnership with, Ed Sheeran.

Thinking Out Loud, was the third single from Ed’s second album, the triple Grammy nominated, X, (Multiply). It went to No. 1 in the UK chart in November 2014 after spending 19 weeks in the Top 40, breaking the record for the longest ever ascent to the peak position. The track went platinum later that month and returned to the No. 1 spot for a second time in December 2014.

Lazy Sundays Presents: The Round @ Tower of Song

 

Songwriters in the Round at Tower of Song January 19th, 8PM

Next Sunday the 19th, I’ll be sat in a row with these three fantastic songwriters at Tower of Song sharing our songs and stories with you! I’m very excited about this gig as it’s a first for me. As you know, I usually feature one act for my Lazy Sundays gigs, but wanted to start up something similar to the Bluebird North gigs that I used to love when I lived in Canada.

The first in the round gig that I attended was in MontreaI on February 19th, 2005! It featured Ron Sexsmith, Joel Plaskett, Blair Packham, Marc Dery, and Ginette Ahier! What a fantastic show. It was about more than just the music, but a feeling of connection between the artists and the audience through the stories they told about their songs. A wonderful night! I hope you’ll join us and make this yet another Lazy Sunday to remember! See you there!
