On Thursday it was the Acoustic Duo with Laura-Jayne Hunter at Oddfellows Mellor, Friday the Trio with Laura K at the John Gilbert, and finally The Trio with Jade at the Bird in Hand in St Helens.

Jade will now be disappearing for a while, after next weekend's wedding booking. She's now at 7 months pregnancy, so the excellent Laura-Jayne Hunter will be fronting the band over the summer

Laura Jayne Hunter - Indie Lounge

etchells school etchells school

Many of you will have experienced the fabulous voice and stage presence of our deputy vocalist Laura-Jayne Hunter (Looby). What you won't know is that Laura-Jayne is a professional vocal coach, and can be booked to perform both as a solo act or with an excellent acoustic guitarist (John Emsley).

This service, under the name 'Indie Lounge' was developed predominantly to indulge her love of indie music. Smooth vocals accompanied by John’s delicate arrangements of indie classics combine their love of performing live with a passion for sharing great music. Alternative versions of indie songs make a beautiful accompaniment to a wedding reception, as an atmospheric background to a corporate event, lounge bar or restaurant. Acoustic and chill-out versions of songs from Doves, Amy Winehouse, Pulp and The Cure are just some of the names to grace Indie Lounge’s set list.

Laura-Jayne continuously updates and adds songs to Indie Lounge, presenting a varied mix of past and present-day indie, pop and rock.

No backing tracks are used.
