See them LIVE again

Posted on January 29th, 2024 by Ray Jones

On Wednesday, we had a storming 6th Anniversary party in the heart of London at St Martin-in-the-Fields.

With over 500 guests filling the Crypt, 3 acts comprising of 6 phenomenal artists, and live music like you’ve never heard before, it was a night for the history books.


“It was an epic Talentbanq gig, and the London music scene for independent artists is thriving, thanks to Talentbanq and their roster.” – DC Brown


Rachel Croft opened the night with her unique, genre-bending style, delivering a powerhouse performance to invigorate the audience. Next, Eddy Smith and the 507 with the TALENTBANQ All-Star band gave a whirlwind of a show, demonstrating both joint and individual forces in the UK Americana scene. His All-Star guests included Ed Tattersall, Alex Francis, Isabella Coulstock and Rachel Croft.

Lisa Canny brought the show home, the Celtic songstress owned the stage and the night with a blistering set featuring both released and unreleased songs. Canny also took the opportunity to announce her latest gig at the Fiddler’s Elbow on June 6th.

In February 2016, Sophie’s life changed when she connected with musician Simon Jaccard, known as “octopus man” for his multi-instrumentalist talents.
