Wow! I really do like his sound, and I'm not just saying that because it's you. Of course, I'm paying attention to attitude, and he's not too far from yours. I listened to 3 songs; he's terrific!

Thanks Really nice understated guitar and 'fragile' vocal. Less is more!!! Enjoyed the show on Soho btw

Substance Live: The Future Of The North

Substance Live: The Future Of The North

Dec 9, 5:00pm - Dec 9, 11:00pm

Hull City Hall
67 Carr Lane
Kingston upon Hull,  HU1 3RQ Map

Substance Live is a music festival celebrating the future of the north through the music of some of our most innovative and forward-thinking artists.

The festival includes the politically charged post-punk of Nadine Shah, the psychedelic dream pop of Jane Weaver, an electronic/brass band intergalactic odyssey courtesy of Hannah Peel, the performance art punk of LONE Taxidermist, all female four piece PINS, sister doom duo CHAMBERS and the homegrown freak folk of The Dyr Sister.

The evening is hosted by 6Music’s and Radio 3’s Elizabeth Alker.

This is a celebration of the diverse and ground-breaking talent that the North always has and always will produce.

Tickets >

Suitability – 16+


Abusing, evading and obliterating 20 years of whimsical pop trends, Jane Weaver's experience as a truly independent and resilient female songwriter/ sound carrier commands respect and inspiration on equal measure.


Armed with a uniquely rich and soulful voice, paired with her effortlessly eloquent and arresting lyrics, Nadine Shah has earned a reputation as a rising, uncompromising talent.


Electronic artist, arranger and composer Hannah Peel's work combines the tremendously deep, rich power of traditional brass with the uplifting arpeggiated patterns and unearthly sound textures of analogue synthesizers.


PINS are at the vanguard of the New Wave of British guitar Rock and Roll firing out noisy, textured pop – a heady mix of Hole, Jesus and Mary Chain and Beach House. The all female five piece were formed in Manchester in 2011 and signed to the iconic Bella Union label. They are a melodic northern powerhouse!


CHAMBERS are a two piece sister doom band from Hull and Leeds. The name in itself is a reflection of their desire to peek inside Pandora’s Box. When you think of a chamber it makes you wonder: What’s inside? What does it look like? What’s it for? The duo are signed to Nottingham based label I’m Not From London Records.

The duo have been named a ‘a hard hitting, unforgiving duo” by Radio 1, whilst Alt Press describe their sound as “a noise-rock sensibility where Girls Against Boys, Deap Vally and Placebo are protecting their favourite bar from horders of hipster vermin and gentrified scum”.


Fresh from the twisted machinations and fertile imagination of Cumbrian-born, London-dwelling artist and seer Natalie Sharp has created LONE Taxidermist. A chaotic realm of poisonous cocktails, thwarted lust. 6am dancehalls and a cast of characters standing on the verge of epiphany.


Hailing from the City of Hull, England, Sally Currie AKA The Dyr Sister is a multi-instrumental cervine beat mistress who conjures up surreal tales with the aid of viola, synth, her voice and an array of DIY samples.

In the Round: Nadine Shah

In the Round: Nadine Shah

Feb 2, 7:00pm - Feb 2, 11:00pm

Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road
London,  NW1 8EH Map

Hypnotic, powerful and completely arresting, Nadine Shah tackles themes of immigration and Islamaphobia through her shimmering post-punk in this intimate seated show, part of our In the Round series.

Shah’s singular, darkly powerful voice and bleak, yet compassionate lyrics have earned the Geordie a fierce reputation as an uncompromising talent. Drawing comparisons to the likes of PJ Harvey and Siouxsie Sioux, she is a commanding presence live – her sparse, sombre vocals cutting through a backdrop of grinding guitars, rasping saxes and driving basslines.

Born to a Norwegian mother and a Pakistani father, the singer-songwriter takes influences from Nina Simone, Scott Walker, poet Philip Larkin and even artist Frida Kahlo. Constantly challenging her listeners, she explores and dissects topics such as mental health, relationships, and on her most recent recording, the highly acclaimed ‘Holiday Destination’ (2017), Islamaphobia and the unfolding refugee crisis, while the brilliant, gritty hit single, ‘Out the Way’ is a biting and scathing contemplation of the rise of global nationalism.

'She can make almost anything sound remarkable…her sharp, incisive rock songs shimmer with a ripe theatricality every time she opens her mouth' - Pitchfork
