Breaking York Special!

Tadcaster based singer/songwriter Bryony Drake is coming to the Two Rivers Radio broadcast lounge to play tracks from her new as yet unreleased EP plus a few extras. Live and exclusive to Breaking York and Two Rivers Radio

Bryony’s vocal style is unique – which is difficult to achieve when there are so many great vocalists out there. Her penchant for wrapping the emotional conundrum inside a dystopian enigma leaves your ears burning with a mixture of why me and a desire to stop the world and fix it.
You’ll fall in love with the characters in her songs as they wrench at your heart strings and stir your compassion for an artist whose talent is under appreciated – still unsigned Bryony is a vocal ruby surrounded by lyrical diamonds set in 18 carat gold.

Tune into Breaking York between midday – 1pm today!

Breaking York Mini-tour

Exciting new platform for originals performers in York

Blueskies is at it again!

It’s tough to get an audience, get heard and get your music out there, let alone be ‘noticed’, well here’s a novel attempt. Blueskies has set up three gigs, on three consecutive nights with the SAME bands! Sounds bonkers?

We asked Graham Blueskies why? Surely no one is going to buy tickets to three consecutive nights to hear the same music?

He responded with.
‘I’ve seen people go to a covers festival for three days and listen to a dozen versions of their ‘favourite’ songs, but no, you’re right, and that is not my thinking. I’d say who travels? No one needs to walk more than 100 meters in York to find great music, so I decided I’d take the music to them. I’ve selected locations that are not too close together and the purpose is to put the bands in front of different audiences – not the same one.

Remember November – 15th – 17th the gigs are 15th Victoria Vaults – 16th Acomb W.M.C. and 17th Clarence Club C.I.U.

Another innovation is that the members of the bands playing get 50% of the £7 ticket price. Blueskies has long been a believer in empowerment and encouragement. Money is important, but that inspires few, creativity and being a part of it inspires all.

Full details on each gig can be found on the Facebook event pages
