On the winning song, Dave Stewart said: “The gentle piano approach to the song is alluring, the second verse in this song is lyrically strong, honest and compelling with her vocal intensifying just enough to feel her anger and get the listener emotionally involved. I chose this song because of the honesty in the vocals and the lyrics mixed with the minimalist approach to the recording, God is there in the space between the notes.“
Songs of War is organised by Soundcheque and sponsored by Hard Rock Cafe London, in support of War Child UK and in partnership with BASCA, SYNCR Music and Virgin Radio UK

8.10pm – Nadia Sheikh
Picture an amalgamation of delicate vocals and ominous indie rock. Vocal lines that shift from airy to powerful in the split of a second. Nadia Sheikh is a genre chameleon that mixes strong indie rock tracks with timeless pop tunes and heartfelt acoustic songs. Quirky melodies and catchy choruses that stick with you. With an impressive cultural background, the half British, half Spanish artist has the power to captivate you with her haunting voice.
With a debut EP and an array of singles, Nadia is set to make her mark on the music scene. The last year has seen Nadia release a collaboration with Jamie Morrison (soul of Pop Morrison and drummer in Stereophonics), being tipped as one of This Feeling’s ‘Big in 2018’ artists, perform all around the UK and Spain, and the Isle of Wight Festival.
With an upcoming performance at FIB (Benicassim festival) and a new set of songs ready to go into the studio, 2018 can’t seem anything but exciting.
8.35pm – Bad Day Blues Band
From recording in Abbey Road to wowing the crowds at The Isle of Wight Festival, BDBB are ferocious live performers and showmen, dedicated to
giving audiences an experience they’ll never forget. Pushing boundaries and merging genres from blues to rock to country and
soul, smelting them into a unique style that can only be BDBB.

Bad Day are playing many of the major popular music UK festivals in 2018 such as The Isle of Wight Festival, Black Deer festival and Pennfest, showing their appeal reaches way beyond the genre their name lends itself to. Rock and roll at it’s coolest.
Their new record The Abbey Road Session reached number 5 in the iTunes blues chart on the day of it’s release. It was produced by Chris Bolster (Paul McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo fighters etc) at Abbey Road studios.
9pm – Anita
Take your need to label everything you listen to and bin it. Anita Sylph comes from years of expressions through jazz, grunge, metal, pop punk, prog and (therefore) eclectic vocals. After hitting several stages in London and collaborations with Lost Outrider’s synthwave vibes and the industrial project , there she is with multi-instrumentalist Koby Israelite, with whom she created the experimental rock duo “Nunheads”.
She left the outskirts of Milan in 2015 to pursue her music career and feed her hunger for new sounds and concepts.
Anita Sylph is music of passion, not to please everyone’s taste, but sure thing you’ll be raptured by the quality of her motley skills and personality.
