London Callin' Presents: Nick Welsh + Louise Distras + J.D. Smith + DEF Digby
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Tipped as the voice of punk‘s next generation, Louise Distras plays a socially conscious and insightful brand of protest poetry that, in a spiritual sense, is also firmly descended from the Clash bloodline. Having released debut album ‘Dreams From the Factory Floor’ only this September, she is already gaining wide-spread acclaim, and was hailed by The Guardian as “putting punk and protest back into the mainstream”.

JD Smith is a rockabilly whirlwind, whipping in a good measure of country and punk on the slide guitar. He describes his music as Bruce Springsteen mixed up with Johnny Cash who laughed with Dylan while listening to Iggy Pop. These songs conjure-up the years of Bill Haley, Gene Vincent and Buddy Holly, no wonder he's called his album 'A Jukebox Riot'.

DEF Digby are a Dub / Rock five piece, formed in 2012 as a celebration of their love for music, and a gift to all the people who encouraged them to put their talents on paper and stage. Largely influenced by the timeless sounds of Reggae, this band are both traditional and modern; fusing psychedelic soundscapes with dub and three part layered vocal harmonies.
In their infancy they have graced the stages of Strummercamp, the infamous 100 Club, and various clubs and venues all over the country.
