Sofar Sounds, Songs From a Room, is an events company that put on secret events in unique locations, globally. Originating from two friends who were fed up of their friends going to gigs and using their phones and having to pay extortionate amounts for drinks. They invited their friends round with some alcohol, had them sat on the floor and listened to an unknown artist perform for them, and from there, Sofar Sounds was born. This month alone, they are holding 400 events globally.

The Liverpool event saw four artists come together for a night of genre bending music. Christie Bratherton, a local lass with a sound similar to that of Birdie, Edgar Jones, described as a Liverpool Legend, Brixton Alley, a three piece from a ‘bit further south than Coventry’ and Trails of Cato, a folk band featuring two Welshman and a Yorkshireman. Each act stunned audiences for a variety of reasons, each act was completely different and a refreshing change from the last. The intimacy of the gig allowed audience/act interaction to be in full swing, with the audience really getting a feel of why the artist’s do what they do.

Christie Bratherton offered a moving start to what was set to be a phenomenal evening. During her set, the audience was awash with a relaxed tones and peaceful vibes. To follow her music and her upcoming releases, check out her Facebook at Christie-Music. Liverpool legend Edgar Jones followed with his scouse humour and upbeat country sounds. Edgar brought a refreshing smile to the room from the very moment he was on stage interacting with the audience in his own scouse way, to meowing through a song about his cat.

Following the break, Brixton Alley, a three-piece indie band awoke the audience into fits of laughter and dancing. You can check them out on all social medias and to create a rapport with the audience whilst playing in the city for the first time, they played a stripped back cover of ‘Pumped Up Kicks’, a well known indie classic, yet still managed to maintain their own style. The best way to describe the trio of best friends is a cross over between George Ezra, Johnny Cash and Elle King – paving the way for a new vibe in the music industry. Catch the song that helped name them, ‘Simple Sally’ on Spotify now.

To finish what was an incredible night of music, folk band Trials of Cato joined the stage whereby they conducted two instrumentals of a relaxing vibe gearing the audience up for their journey home and a welsh summery song which cheered everyone up. They have an album out next week and if you want to keep up with updates, you can sign up to their mailing list from their website.

Sofar Sounds Liverpool are back in the city with more events in the future. To keep up to date with music events, follow them on social media, Facebook – liverpoolsofarsounds, Twitter – @sofarliverpool, and Instagram – sofarsoundsliverpool.
