OCEAN COLOUR SCENE
3rd Aug 2024
Iconic singer-songwriter Richard Ashcroft will headline a show in the stunning grounds of Audley End in Saffron Walden, Essex on Sat 3rd August 2024, with very special guests Ocean Colour Scene and Tom Meighan.
Richard Ashcroft is a two-time Ivor Novello winner (Songwriter of the Year in 1998 and Outstanding Contribution to British Music in 2019) who has released five Top 5 solo albums, including the #1 debut 'Alone With Everybody'.
He first came to attention with The Verve, with who he released one of the biggest albums of the era in the shape of 'Urban Hymns' (the UK's 18th biggest selling album of all-time) as well as a succession of anthems which remain staples of his live set today, including 'The Drugs Don't Work', 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'Lucky Man' and 'Sonnet'. His most recent album, ‘Acoustic Hymns’, was released in 2022 and reached No.2 in the UK Album Chart.
Ocean Colour Scene, consisting of frontman Simon Fowler, guitarist Steve Cradock and drummer Oscar Harrison, have notched up ten albums of influential and commercially successful hits since their formation in 1989. Three of these – 1996’s ‘Moseley Shoals’, 1997’s ‘Marchin’ Already’, and 1999’s ‘One From The Modern’ went Top 5, and included a run of nine successive Top 20 singles commencing with 1996’s The Riverboat Song.
Tom Meighan is the former vocalist of the alternative rock powerhouse Kasabian. Meighan’s signature frenetic energy and powerful baritone have kept his name in the mouths of British music fans since he came onto the scene in 1997. Meighan has since pursued his own solo musical endeavours with a focus on rehabilitation and emotional honesty, releasing his debut solo album ‘The Reckoning’ earlier this year to critical acclaim.
