A native of Jersey, which has helped to influence his introspective style of writing. Maximilian’s love of music bloomed in his teenage years after digging through bargain bins in local record shops which inspired him to start playing in bands on the small island. The island soon felt too small for him however and he moved to Brighton where he has lived ever since, frequently collaborating with some of the scene’s most familiar faces including Martha Eve and Hutch as well as supporting acts passing through like Naima Bock and Porchlight. https://linktr.ee/maximilianmusic
+ Woody Green:Woody Green, the Brighton-based maestro of ‘poetry rock,’ is set to mesmerize with his upcoming single, ‘The Greatest Collection Of Local Antiques,’ scheduled for release on January 31 via Strong Island Recordings.
With a 5-piece band, Green’s compositions are simple, unusual and timeless. Characterised by avant-garde cello, brass and the lyrical juxtaposition of the mundane with the surreal. His verses, reminiscent of Cohen’s, wield profound symbolism and metaphor, creating a canvas of introspection in each song. Drawing inspiration from the awkward strangeness of Aldous Harding, Woody Green offers an unsettling elegance, weaving grace and discomfort into a haunting enigma wrapped in poetic melodies. Stay tuned for his EP arriving in April, as Woody continues to carve his own unique space.
+ Harry Hayes: Harry Hayes is a prolific Lewes-based songwriter and producer. For a long time a (mostly) solitary home-recording project, he is finally hitting the stage to perform with a 4 piece band featuring members Plantoid, The Stanford Family Band and SHBBP. Confidently swaying between gentle country ballads and soaring rock crescendos, at the heart of Hayes’ music is always the expression of classic and direct songwriting. Heavily influenced by the ethos and sound of the 1960s Laurel Canyon folk scene, Hayes plays with conventions and expectations to create something a little obtuse but always just within reach.
The venue is only accessible via a flight of stairs however they can offer access via a back door at street level to the venue if mobility is an issue or you use a wheelchair. There are 3 large steps via this route so assistance to gain access and to exit the venue would be required. We can arrange this if you contact us in advance of a show. Please bear in mind that they can only allow access in between bands due to sound issues. Two disabled toilets upstairs, both gender neutral.

If strobe lighting is an issue or if standing for long periods of time is an issue, please contact us in advance. They can provide chairs in the venue although if the event is very busy this will impede visibility. If you wish to make use of a chair to view a gig, we advise arriving early to secure a position.
