In need of an upgrade to your Friday nights? Look no further than 60 Million Postcards as they host another iteration of We Broke Free, this week featuring Bristol-based Stevie Parker and local girl Jazz Morley. This is set to be an atmospheric evening exploiting to the fullest extent the intimate setting of 60 Million Postcards, with both artist delivering an ambiance that is sure to keep the audience gripped for the entirety of the evening.
Stevie Parker, leading on from her recent release earlier this month in the form of introspective single ‘Without You’, is certain to impress with her elegant blend of thoughtfully composed lyrics and melodic harmonies. Still in the early stages of her career, Parker has been tipped by NME as a rising star and, on the basis and credibility of this statement is a talent not to miss, particularly when playing a venue as small as 60 Million. She successfully manages to command her own characteristic style of electronic-pop and captures qualities reminiscent of chart topping artists the likes of The XX, HAIM and CHVRCHES.
Likewise, Jazz Morley tonally channels her influences to produce a Jessie Ware/Foy Vance-esque sound that will undoubtedly complement that of Parker and result in the two amplifying the mood, allowing them to play the audience off of each other with little-to-no break in the proceedings.
Having played to the crowds of Guilfest and How the Lights Get In, Jazz Morley is a name than too often passes under the radar, leaving her playing to audiences all too small for a talent as great as hers. The 28 year old has received acclaim from publications including Time Out London, Elle and Nylon Magazine, with the latter championing her as an artist that “you shouldn’t have to go through life without listening to.”
Need more be said then? These are two artists that undoubtedly should not be missed, so head down to 60 Million Postcards this Friday and make the best decision you will make this week.
This Friday the 17th – music starts from 9pm.
