The singer-songwriter who hails from London plays his pop and soul originals.
Roachford has become one of the most compelling and consistent rock and soul artists the UK has produced, since Cuddly Toy (a mainstay of radio airplay for over three decades) reached number four in the charts back in 1988. He has released 10 studio albums and several greatest hits collections, been sought-after as a songwriter by the likes of Michael Jackson, Joss Stone and Chaka Khan, and consistently toured on his own and with contemporaries including Terence Trent D’Arby and The Christians.
Roachford is someone who channels the energy of James Brown before going on stage each night, and who, on record, summons up the spirit of everyone from Al Green to Joe Cocker. When he sings, you listen.
Support on the night comes from soul artist Acantha Lang who’s songwriting is present on Grammy nominated Robert Randolph & The Family Band. Acantha’s debut EP was selected by Soul Tracks as their featured album of the month.
