Christine Walters - Live Art London

Christine Walters is a Performance Artist who paints the abstract of LIVE DJ music. Born in Indiana, schooled in Alabama and cultured in New York City, Walters is a self taught Artist and attributes her use of colours and images to Synesthesia.  her early inspiration was drawn from LIVE DJ sets at NYC’s Webster Hall back in 90’s.  Sound, either from a live DJ set, a crowded room or hum of a city have story to tell and Christine uses her Synesthesia to paint it.  Music is not just music, it's a medium that spills onto a surface. 

Kipp Boucher & The Current Fantasy

Inspired by the likes of Scott Walker, Margo Guryan and Randy Newman, Kipp Boucher’s arresting brand of piano-led soft rock does more than just hark back to the ‘simpler times’ of his songwriting heroes. Rather, it represents those facets of society that have remained complex. Pondering on various elements of the human experience, the 26-year-old’s lyrics dance between the earnest, the sardonic and the surreal to almost startling effect; touching on topics such as mental illness, mortality, and the growing nationalist sentiments of the western world. Flanked by his band The Current Fantasy, the Brighton born crooner’s live show sees him empty the contents of his emotional locker; with expansive Mellotrons, sultry saxophones, a swing of the hips and a tongue in the cheek. The band have just finished recording their new EP, coming later this year.
