Hackney Weekend 2012


24 Jun 2012 BBC Introducing Stage

Big voice. Big talent

For many, singer songwriter Kersha Bailey's Hackney set will be a refuge of calm amidst the amazing madness. The self-taught guitarist produces dynamic acoustic jazz and indie soul with a vocal that we can only describe as delicious.

Citing her range of influences from the more obvious Jill Scott to Prince, Coldplay and even the Foo Fighters, Kersha is a box of tricks when performing live alongside her band.

Her vocal runs and ad-libs are even more impressive in front of a crowd as previous audiences at London's Jazz Cafe, Ronnie Scotts and Hackney Empire will testify.
