A UNIQUE LIVE MUSIC EXPERIENCE.
WE LOVE SOULFUL MUSIC.
And so do you! That’s probably why you’re reading this. You miss authentic, raw, soulful music, and maybe you have a passion for supporting women in music like we do. Either way, we look forward to having you at a show :)
Our shows feature original songs by female soul singer-songwriters inspired by influences including Lauryn Hill, Amy Winehouse, Tracy Chapman, India Arie, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lianne la Havas, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott etc. Each artist covers one of their songs also every show.
It's about creating for our audiences and our artists alike, the best experience possible in enjoying this style of stripped back music so we encourage a listening policy whilst artists are on.
We love banter though! So we have a break mid-show and a proper show hostess so there’s never a dull moment really!
Soul Stripped Sessions debuted 16th March 2017 at Salon Noir, Upstairs at l'escargot in Soho with an incredible sell-out show! We are proud to say, this has remained a consistent trait across all our monthly events since! So we created a second night... Soul Stripped Piano sessions in Sept 2017. Another sell-out success with our return audiences telling us the atmosphere, quality of music and hosting are what they love the most about these nights.
Our Piano sessions feature Impressive voices and a Grand Piano in one of London’s best kept secret venues! It’s a night of goosebump-ey voices and truly captivating pin-drop moments with artists that draw inspiration from the likes Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, Alicia Keys, Sarah Bareilles, Emeli Sande, Sarah Mclachlan etc.
2018 & 2019 has seen Soul Stripped Sessions break across cities nationwide starting with our successful debut show in Brighton at Komedia (August 2018), back August 2019.
September 2019 brings our Bristol debut show, with an international platform as the future objective. A brand that represents respect for women in music and inspires creatives everywhere. Our nights encourage spreading Joy and good vibes!
Soul Stripped Sessions as a music event, is a concept to help maximise the live music experience for listeners and artists that share a specific taste in music genre. SSS celebrates music culture and influences.
