An indie-folk trio from Manchester. Café Spice was born over a love of singing in harmony, beautifully crafted songs, plain naan and sausage rolls on a wet and windy night in a Glaswegian curry house called Café Spice. What on earth were we doing there? A story for another time…
Made up of Georgia Gage (Scotland), Niamh Feeney (Ireland) and Eleanor Lang (The North), Café Spice are a trio who create heavenly and Autumnal harmonies reminiscent of the Mamas & Papas whilst also sitting with the effortlessly sublime indie-folk of contemporaries such as The Staves or HAIM.
Fresh off a sold out gig at major touring stop, Jimmy’s in Manchester, Café Spice are embarking on their next adventure . They have some cracking live shows booked in for 2019 and more material emerging from the studio soon.
Their debut single 'Lauren', closely followed by their song 'Bn2' went down a treat among the indie-folk world. 'Lauren' made its radio premiere on Tom Robinson's BBC Radio 6 show and the live video of 'Lauren' was premiered by major folk music blog For Folk Sake. The trio are now squirrelling away devising more delectable delights for their listeners.
The three began their journey in the usual way, cutting their teeth in every small venue in Manchester including The Castle, Night and Day, The Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall, Fuel and The Whiskey Jar. One Summer they took their tunes to the Edinburgh Fringe and performed across the city including a main stage on Princess Street and the famous folk bar, The Captain’s Club. Having won a songwriting competition, they made a guest appearance at The Nantwich Words and Music Festival supporting Mark Radcliffe’s Galleon Blast - a hearty experience.
The three musicians each bring their own individual styles spanning jazz, blues, pop, country, traditional folk and funk. The result is a fantastic fusion and mixing pot of genres. A new sound woven from singing, harmony and clever songwriting.
