BeX Greg Haver 010

BeX wickham 3

The Wickham festival kicked of on Thursday 3rd August, with a sell out crowd and artists line up over the four days, with something for everyone with headline acts KT Tunstall & 10cc on Thursday, Friday the crowd enjoyed Seth Lakeman and Show of Hands and Saturday the Oyster Band and The Leverllers took to the main stage.

It was then the turn of Country Americana singer songwriter BeX and her band taking to the second main stage at ‘Wickham’ on the Hapi Festival stage (main-stage 2) playing alongside Gibb Todd, Ray Cooper & John Otway, with headline act Goat Roper Rodeo Band closing the evening. BeX and her band performed songs from her debut album ‘Story So Far, this was her debut festival performance and to be honest she couldn’t of asked for a better festival to launch on, the set was bright, energetic with some real catchy tunes with great lyrical content with a strong energy from her band, with Guy Hassell on base, Richard Wood on guitar and Kyle Fenton on drums and percussion – starting the set with her debut singe ‘Time to stop the rain’, which was quite fitting as the day was full of bright sunshine, which was not the case at the start of the festival.

The set was for 45 minutes, and with a very warm and enthusiastic crowd of several hundred people packing the big top to see the performance from this Country Americana artist, but with a little of pop rock in for good measure. For BeX first festival performance, I would say a great start to the festival scene and we’ll be looking forward to the next show….

Before the Wickham Festival BeX graced the BBC introducing stage for Cowes Week at Sheperds Wharf, she performed songs from her debut album with a stripped back acoustic set, with Jamie Woodford joining the band on stage with added percussion, with the Wickham festival set being a full band performance, it was a great contrast…. BeX performed on the BBC stage at 5pm, with again a very enthusiastic crowd, especially with BeX fan base and network several people travelled a long way to catch the singer songwriter perform at Cowes for the BBC.

The next stop for the UK singer songwriter is with the BBC once again, with a house band invite from BBC Radio Kent, performing on the James Whale show. This artist has a real presence with a very strong backing from her musicians, certainly moving in the right direction and energy.

BeX Image, has come a long way in the past 12 months, building her sound and song structure which captured the attention of Mr Greg Haver (Manic St Preachers, Melanie C producer).

BeX is in the studios at Modern World from the 10th -16th September, to record her debut EP with Greg, BeX is accompanied by great guest musicians, from the very top of the tree; Nick Nasmyth Keyboards & Piano (Manic St Preachers, Melanie C), Andy Taylor Acoustic & Electric guitar (Nicky Wire – Manic St Preachers & Portishead), Greg Haver Producer (Drums & Percussion).
 
Bex will record 3 track EP, all original songs co-written with her writing partners the sound and songs are going to be wonderful, capturing her natural ability to deliver powerful vocal, but also to capture her vulnerable side looking inside the artist from a different perspective. This is not all, BeX will be captured on film the whole week, with the independent film company ”Little Earth” from Dundee Scotland, this will be more of a journey capturing the real beauty of the artist within the studio environment, this will transcend into interviews with the whole team as the week goes on. The final part will be on Saturday working in some beautiful locations across the Gloucestershire countryside, for BeX promo….. as the journey unfolds.
 
I will keep you all updated on the progress of BeX, but one thing is for sure the ride is going to be a great journey watching BeX grow into the artist, we all know she can be!!
