Oxjam Oxford launch with My Grey Horse / Loud Mountains / Jordan O’Shea @ The Jericho Tavern, Oxford
Saturday 20 September 2014, 8:15 pm - 11:00 pm
Oxjam Oxford have announced the details for this years 2014 launch gig. The gig is the first in a month-long series of events leading up to their main takeover on Saturday 18 October.
My Grey Horse: Fresh from the road of their UK tour to promote their debut album I Still Don’t Understand and with their layered four-part harmonies, swirling guitars and sweeping melodies, My Grey Horse have casually drawn comparisons to The Shins, Grandaddy, and Pavement, yet all agree that they’re hard to place.
Loud Mountains: A five-piece Americana band, originally formed by American born brothers Kevin and Sean Duggan. Now based in Oxford, the band was completed by the arrival of British members Calum To, Tom Gill, and Ricky Eastwood. With close harmonies, infectious guitar riffs and toe tapping rhythms, Loud Mountains offers Americana with a twist, plenty of volume and more pop-hooks than you could shake a stick at.
Jordan O’Shea: A young melancholic singer-songwriter, who according to the BBC “writes music you can get lost to”. O’Shea released his first EP Her Name Was _French Cinema_ in August 2012, and shortly followed this with his critically acclaimed debut album Desperation, My Dear in January 2013. After supporting acts such as Sweet Baboo, Rachel Sermanni, and Luke Sital-Singh, O’Shea was compared to world-renowned acts such as Bon Iver and City and Colour, whilst being announced as The Huffington Post’s ‘Act of the Week’, and declared as a ‘multi- media renaissance man’ by MusicInOxford.
