Public Address nights at the West End Centre are back and this March we have a cracking line-up for you...

 

Maddie Morris
Maddie Morris is an artist who strives to make a difference in the world. Bold, insightful and refreshingly unique, they take traditional song in new directions to shine a light on contemporary issues. 

Folk songs have always told stories, but how Maddie makes their mark is by turning this storytelling into action. Described by Jim Moray as “leading the next generation of socially conscious songwriters”, they use their work to highlight inequality, challenge viewpoints and provide an inclusive space for shared experiences.

Whether they’re turning a centuries-old ballad on its head or writing something new, Maddie places their focus on drawing out true meaning rather than being true to tradition. Their debut studio album, Skin, (release in February 2024) is a beautifully crafted collection of songs which amplifies the stories of those often marginalised by society. Passionately political, yet gently understated, this is music that deftly treads the path between art and activism.

Emilie Lierre
Emilie Lierre's low-toned, soulful, singing voice has a truly commanding presence. 

Backed up by the alluring chimes of her trustee ukulele, the charisma that exudes from Emilie’s performance is truly electrifying!
A nomad by nature, born in Manchester, brought up in Portsmouth, but comfortable anywhere, Emilie Lierre's album 'The Wanderer' takes the listener on a journey of their own through her thoughts on life, love and the world around us.
