Never miss another 'The Leisure Society' show
Indie-folk-chamberpop maestros The Leisure Society is essentially the brainchild of songwriter and film score composer Nick Hemming.
Coming from the same canon as The Divine Comedy and the Mull Historical Society, Nick's gentle indie anthems revel in acoustic guitars, pianos, harps and infectious melodies. They have earnt themselves two Ivor Novello award nominations, whilst the heart-warming and beautiful single 'The Last Of The Melting Snow' was proclaimed Guy Garvey's (Elbow) favourite song of 2009 and Radio 2's Radcliffe & Maconie promptly made it their 'record of the week'.
The band continue to release sublime material, with their 4th release in 2015; 'The Fine Art Of Hanging On'.

London-born songstress Alessi Laurent-Marke called herself Alessi's Ark to avoid any confusion with the Alessi Brothers. She started drumming at the age of 11, and left school at 16 to persue her passion for music. She has supported artists such as Laura Marling, Mariee Sioux, Emilíana Torrini and Cerys Matthews. She has a beautiful crooning voice, and produces tender, melodic folk-pop.
