Didn’t get enough culture over the long weekend? Keen to perfect the stand back, chin scratch and sigh that artists and art types seem to be so great at? Want to fill your ears with incredible vocals, phenomenal bass and a genre you can’t quite pinpoint but seem to fall in love with all the same? Then this Friday, Newcastle’s favourite gallery (well it’s my favourite and I’m writing this so I can say what I want) the Lock Up have you covered. Bass and Voice duo Bravo Victor are wrapping up their most recent tour in style with a special one off show this Friday evening, at the Lock Up Art space on Hunter Street.
Although quite unorthodox in their approach on paper, Bravo Victor encompass a true mash of genres, with jazz traditionalist and bassist Jonathan Burgess colliding with classically trained pop enthusiast Sophie Aked, to form something truly incredible.
Bravo Victor’s sound is always exactly what and where it needs to be, to fuel both Jonathan’s passion for a traditionalist outfit as well as providing a haven for Sophie’s heart on sleeve vulnerability that shines through in both her performance and her writing.
Their self titled debut EP released in May earlier this year, is a refined body of work, and encompasses a variety of stylings paying homage to both the modern and traditionalist approaches to their sound. Word has it however, that they have some exciting news for those lucky enough to be in attendance, you should definitely make sure you are one of those people.
