THE FOLLOWING BLOG POST WAS BROUGHT TO YOU BY LONDON SUMMER JAM
Jammers unite! Brace yourselves for the biggest news to rock LSJ’s world yet! As promised, we’re rocking and rolling out surprises in our lineup of performers for London Summer Jam!
Let's get the party of announcements started with three ace acts, from Britain and beyond! Fresh, fantastic, and totally prepped to pump up the JAM!
LSJ is thrilled to shout out the newest additions to a sensational roster of music artists slated to rock The Bedroom Bar at our debut festival on September 29, 2012.
Ready to blast the London Summer Jam Main Stage with brilliance and passion for music…
LSJ welcomes singer/songwriter/guitarist, international recording artist and performer, Malina Moye. A highly acclaimed American music sensation, Moye is renowned and celebrated for her astonishing level of musical artistry and skill. One of a kind star status is perfectly deserved for this lefty, upside-down guitar genius among us. Guitar World Magazine hailed Moye as the “female Jimi Hendrix” and “one of the Top Ten female guitarists in the world.” In her live shows she amps up the Funk, Rock and Soul to amazing levels, exhilarating and electrifying crowds all over the globe. Moye has garnered universal raves and props while touring with Robin Thicke, Boys II Men, Journey, as well as other industry powerhouses.
Blazing musical paths at every turn, Moye has a number of remarkable achievements under her Stratocaster strap.
Joining a prestigious group of music artists, she’s the first female lefty guitarist to be selected as a Fender Guitar endorsee and perform as a member of the elite lineup of the 2012 Experience Hendrix Tour.
Moye was the first African-American female to perform the American National Anthem at a major sporting event. The legend of Hendrix radiated as if the torch had been passed. Moye's performance, preserved on YouTube, was an incredibly inspirational tribute to her country.
She’s performed at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and now she’s headed for London to make more trailblazing history at our epic event, dubbed Britain's First Large-scale Music Jam Festival.
Malina Moye will Headline at London Summer Jam, commanding the LSJ Mass Jam Main Stage and leading the Grand Finale Mass Jam. Speaking with us today, she shared her enthusiasm for our festival event: “I love a great Jam, and something about leading a massive amount of people on one song sounds insanely wonderful and electrifying. London Summer Jam calling! Are you ready?”
Jammers, Malina Moye asked if you’re ready!
“Are y’all ready to fly?”
Moye is currently working on her newest album, Rock ‘N Roll Baby, set for an autumn 2012 release under the label of WCE Records, which she owns.
LSJ welcomes a super-popular British band from Wales, Something Personal. Describing themselves as “a colourfully melodic, driving and anthemic rock ‘n’ roll band with a hint of mellow drama,” they’re a resounding U.K. crowd favorite. The four-man band deliver an impressive abundance of original material, with musical influences ranging from Nirvana & AC/DC to The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Irresistible lead vocals & harmonies masterfully combined with commanding guitars and drums will enthrall LSJammers. Something Personal woos fans with both electric excitement and acoustic cuddles. Their beloved sound brings people together, and that plays to the heart of London Summer Jam.
Lead singer & guitarist, Jono Davies, spoke with us on behalf of the band about their sense of anticipation for LSJ: “We are SO looking forward to being part of the first ever London Summer Jam as it's bound to be such a unique and fun-filled event where music lovers from all over the globe can really come together by letting themselves go in music, simply by JAMMING. It's going to be really wholesome and interesting experiencing people from all cultures being united in one big Jam! We can't wait to play for this type of audience and we have high hopes that it's gonna be a real day to remember!”
LSJ welcomes singer/songwriter, guitar wizard, David Humeda, all the way from Monterrey, MX. A vibrant figure on the music scene in his homeland, Humeda shares a rich repertoire of original songs to embrace listeners. Strikingly naked vocals reveal a deep, soulful passion for life and a musical journey he invites all to join. Stylistic versatility is delivered throughout every performance and always sets the stage for a fascinating trip.
Highly accomplished musicianship - on both acoustic and electric guitars - earned Humeda the prestigious title of Official Fender/Guild Artist representing Mexico.
Humeda describes his latest recording project, a debut album entitled Little Needle, as "full of neo-soul and R&B roots, meeting with high-voltage guitars and melodic ballads."
Humeda shared with LSJ that performing his music along with his band at London Summer Jam has been “a dream” since learning about the festival via social media. “I’ve wanted to be part of your amazing event since the moment I read about it! I’ve connected with an awesome global network of music lovers through London Summer Jam. I’m really looking forward to experiencing the most massive way to communicate our beautiful language of music. Performing at LSJ will be great, and that added jamming dimension will take it all to an ultra-exciting level.”
Something Personal and David Humeda will be featured on LSJ’s Main Stage where they will perform fantastic, standard sets of their music. As a big bonus, they’ll dive into playing with the JAM theme and vibe of the festival, stoked by electric and acoustic energy. Songs that are ready-set-go PLUS on-the-fly Jams equal the BEST, most entertaining music dynamics of both worlds, and will be center-stage at London Summer Jam.
LSJ welcomes Malina Moye, Something Personal, and David Humeda! Massive thanks for joining our JAM FEST. What a lineup already, with more announcements to come!
