Blue Flowers are synonymous for putting on nights with some of the best up and coming artists in an intimate setting in Chiswick, West London.
Starting back in 2004 Blue Flowers has played host to early shows for some of the biggest names in British music such as Adele, Florence and the Machine, Laura Marling, Jamie T and Mumford & Sons. Along with Lianne La Havas, The Maccabees and many more of today’s big names Blue Flowers quickly established themselves as one of the most important music curators sourcing and nurturing talent.
Among one of their most memorable nights was one back in 2012, where their Christmas special featured James Bay, George Ezra, Sam Smith and Laura Mvula all on the same night. All artists have since been shortlisted for either the Brits Critics’ Choice Awards or the BBC’s ‘Sound Of…’ poll and gone on to achieve a wealth of success.
Moving away from its Chiswick home, Blue Flowers hosts Michael Kiwanuka here at Cadogan Hall as part of what will be an annual event. In Autumn 2014, acclaimed young Londoner Michael Kiwanuka returned to the studio to commence work on his second album. Those sessions have now reached their conclusion, with full details to be announced imminently for a Spring 2016 release. We can’t tell you much just yet, but what we can tell you is that it’s been well worth the wait. It’s the sound of a man reborn, and the sound of an artist truly discovering himself.
Michael has recently taken a rare step out of the studio to support his old touring pals Alabama Shakes across Europe, and now readies himself for the big stage all to himself. There is a fond history between the supportive Blue Flowers crew and Michael with him previously performing at the club night twice back in 2011. So this very special night should act as the finest possible introduction to the magic of his new material.
