Soul Snippets

North East guitar hero Lloyd Wright is now performing with South Shields pop/soul diva Lulu James and over the past couple of weeks the band have appeared on Later With Jools. Admittedly Lloyd's guitar plays second fiddle (!) to Lulu's legs and larynx but, nevertheless it's good seeing the boy get the exposure he deserves. Check it out here (The band are on circa 16 and 42 mins into the program).

Another North East soul singer emerging from the pack is Sam Dickinson who impressed at Hoochie earlier this year. Sam's first album is due for release on June 3. Details here.
