Arabella Emmeleine

Arabella Emmeleine combines rhythmic vocals with observational undertones, causing anyone in earshot to follow her every word. Her powerful yet almost vulnerable guitar playing completes every song effortlessly. Charismatic, charming and a true realist.


After extensive touring as a session guitarist, London/Brighton songwriter Lec has gone solo with his own brand of modern folk, fused with hints of blues and soul. The launch party for his debut single ‘Coming Your Way’ is on Friday 8th February at The Harrison, Kings Cross. The song is heartfelt and warm, with evocative lyrics and gritty but refined guitar work. For fans of Jeff Buckley, Tallest Man on Earth, and Bob Dylan.

Lisa Nora
