Nick Ellis – Nick has built up a loyal fan base in the city and beyond with his regular trips across the M62. Signed to Mellowtone Records, he’s recently released his 3rd album in 2 years, Adult Fiction, following swiftly on the heels of Daylight Ghosts and Grace and Danger.
Again, the songwriting craft and the melody’s all important, Nick blends streetscape narrative-noir with a classic British acoustic approach. Using a blend of rhythmic attack and finger-quick lucidity, his sound has been described as “a conversation between Elvis Costello and John Martyn.”.
Of his songwriting, Nick says, “I see my songs as chapters and scenes. My albums as movies and books. Except in this film, the stories are true.”.
Toria Garbutt – Toria’s unique blend of pure punk heritage and unapologetic spoken word confessions make her one of the most vital and visceral voices in the country.
Hailing from Knottingley, she burst onto the scene through A Firm Of Poets in summer 2014 and released début album 'Hot Plastic Moon' via Nymphs & Thugs in May.
2016 has so far seen Toria grace the stage at Festival No.6, join Dr John Cooper Clarke as a support act and establish an army of fans that continues to flourish.
"Toria's words are silk javelins. Frank explorations of self, outpourings of a joyfully pained mind. She means it. Cos she's lived it. I love that girl" Mike Garry
Roy – Roy’s making his third Oddjob appearance, so we must be doing something right. Memorably, he appeared on stage in a gasmask on that first occasion. That’s a daring bit of stagecraft for a guy who’s a storyteller, a raconteur, a little bit comedian, a little bit poet, a little bit happy, a little bit sad. Continuing the blue theme, he’s an Evertonian and his love/hate relationship with the club does occasionally feature in his work. But Roy’s about the bigger picture and his observations on the world he sees around him, the life he’s led, have earned him support slots on the same bill as the legendary Michael Head. So, it’s only right that Roy comes back to help us kick off a top night of music from the banks of the Royal Blue Mersey.
