Brooklyn-based and husky-voiced Mary-Elaine Jenkins sings bluesy American folk music simmering in slow-burn attitude like a lightly-spiced bourbon. This is much-needed escapism back to a time when America represented hope-fuelled abandon and wild adventure rather than today’s confounding ‘road to domestos‘.
Give ‘The Americans‘ a listen – it sounds like the theme song to a potential new Soprano’s spin-off series about Meadow Soprano’s attempts to escape the shadows of her family. Love letter to the legendary Mr. Pop, ‘Iggy‘, is another highlight from Mary-Elaine’s brilliant ‘Hold Still’ album…
“Iggy, Oh Iggy, I wanna be your sweet 16, even though I’m almost 29…” growls Mary-Elaine tongue-in-cheek, “Iggy, if you wanted to be my dog, I’d make you never wanna stray…”
Next up is The Young, playing their awesome acoustic version of their indie rock. They’ve been keeping active during lockdown beings lead singer Alfie and George, their bass player live together, so that means lots of music to keep them going. They are influenced by Oasis and the Stone Roses, so if they’re your type of band, tune in and check ’em out …

The show is hosted by Simona Martini. This will be a really interesting virtual meet that you won’t want to miss.
