On 15 March over 150 people from the music and fashion industries attended K West Live the new monthly music gig held at K West in Shepherds Bush, a Bushstock Festival venue.
Headliner and rising star, Rothwell, a young British singer-songwriter from Bristol, billed by Metro as an ‘Up-and-coming star’ and favoured by BBC Radio’s 1’s Best New Pop show, shone with her upbeat stage presence and strong, harmonious vocals.
Richard Maule’s powerful voice and heartfelt lyrics charmed the crowd who were thrilled to hear his soon to be released ‘Lift Me Up’ single. Richard and his talented band are an act not to be missed and have a busy line up this summer playing at festivals such as Smoked and Uncut.
Guitar trio SEN3 were also a sure winner when they took to the stage to get the crowd going with emotive harmonies, contemporary beat-culture and heavy riffs.
