HARK! The Sound of Stories
The Hughes & Hughes Sessions
HJM Bradshaw is a singer-songwriter based in Teesside, having also been regular cellist for North East artists Tom Joshua, Nel Unlit, and Elaine Palmer, as well as Mercury Prize nominated John Bramwell (I Am Kloot), for a number of years. She has an eclectic mix of influences both musical and literary, including solo artists such as Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling, Carole King, Carole Bayer Sager, as well as poets Sylvia Plath, Frank O’Hara and Simon Armitage. Bradshaw’s songs combine wistful, often confessional lyrics with folk-tinged guitar, and delicate vocals reminiscent of both folk and older music hall styles.
Performances will be paired with poetry readings from Teesside writer, podcaster, performer and former BBC Tees DJ Bob Fischer, and emerging poet (and current law student) Zafira Nelson-Ashley.
