Join us in London’s first Happy Cafe just off Brick Lane for a laidback evening showcasing jazz and soul performances from some of the UK’s most inspiring singer/songwriters.

Abimaro Gunnell
Confessional in nature and green in colour, Abimaro’s new material blends the freedom of the a cappella voice with electronics to musically capture the human heart and all its intricacies and complexities.

Amy Doyley
Having supported the likes of Gregory Porter, Roy Aires and Public Enemy, Amy Doyley is now forging her way as a solo artist in her own right, with the release of her debut album in 2017. Amy will take you on a journey through music, poetry, storytelling and visual images to demonstrate her personal take on freedom of expression.

Junior Williams
Junior Williams blends original sounds of soul, jazz blues and pop taking influence from Marvin Gaye, Louis Armstrong, Diana Washington and Adele.

Approximate end time: 8.00pm
Please note that this venue is not wheelchair accessible.
