We’re delighted to hear award-winning artist and Brighter Sound residency alumni Natalie McCool will be supporting Nordic pop star AURORA in London next week.
Natalie was chosen by Youth Music to join AURORA and singer-songwriter Rhys Lewis at an intimate gig at the Courtyard Theatre next Mon 8 Apr as part of this year’s Give a Gig Week.
“I was so excited when I found out I’d be supporting Aurora – an artist who I think has a real uniqueness and talent. The #GiveAGig scheme is a brilliant idea that’s a bit different from charity gigs I’ve played before – it’s £5 to enter the raffle for tickets, and all donations go to charity! I think it’s a really great initiative that puts the focus on artists giving something back, and gives the audience a chance to donate to a great cause.” – Natalie McCool
Natalie has worked with Brighter Sound for a number of years now, both as a participant and a practitioner. Since taking part in our Wall of Sounds residency Beth Orton back in 2015, she has gone on to lead a number of our projects for young musicians, including our regular Sing City songwriting sessions, our Make Noise library gigs and her own Both Sides Now residency in Liverpool.
Natalie recently performed at a Sofar Sounds gig in partnership with Brighter Sound and the People’s History Museum where she performed her newly released track Woman’s World, created especially for International Women’s Day.
