Following their most special show in June with Nick Mulvey, Wake Up Gigs returns with performances from Only Girl and ROB.GREEN.
Only Girl is a soulful young artist, emerging from the DIY music scene of South East London, honing her own brand of emotional, understated pop, infused with R&B & gospel melodies. Her music began to take shape after being introduced to long term collaborators Zero 7, finding a strong songwriting connection with the duo, who went on to produce many of her early singles & feature her on their own releases.
To date she has has garnered widespread support across BBC Introducing London, Spotify, BBC Radio 1 & Radio 2 (recording a live session for Dermot O Leary), BBC6 Music and online tastemakers including Fader, Clash, Mahogany & Red Bull Music and featuring on releases with Zero 7, Kultur & Kitty Cash Love the Free mixtape.
Nottingham-based singer songwriter ROB.GREEN has drawn upon the varied genres of music he grew up with – including soul, RnB, indie and rock, to inform his own distinctive sound and style.
In 2017 Rob performed at the BBC Proms as part of Clare Teal's Swing No End Proms, which aired on BBC 6MUSIC, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Four television. He also supported Grammy Nominee Eric Bibb on the Netherlands leg of his Migration Blues Tour. This year Rob re-joins both artists on their respective tours, beginning with supporting Eric Bibb for eleven dates of his UK Tour April 2018.
