Club Velocity: Sean McGowan / Burnt Tomorrow / Jake Morley


Once again, we are excited to be an o cial partner for Independent Venue Week 2018! This is a nationwide celebration of independent music venues and a chance to highlight how important they are in our communities. We are proud to be the only venue in Reading taking part. How are we marking the occasion? With a triple bill of Club Velocity, of course! 

SEAN MCGOWAN - raised on a diet of The Clash, The Jam, Specials, Billy Bragg and other such politically-charged, punk-ignited British pop, 24 year old Southampton-born troubadour Seán McGowan had been playing up and down the UK for five years, and DIY released three EPs (given away / sold on a “pay what you want” basis at shows), before catching the ears of the music industry at 2013’s Great Escape festival. An appearances on Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury that year saw Seán exposed to his biggest audience yet, and touring / playing shows with artists the likes of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, The Rifles, Beans On Toast and Frank Turner. 2015 saw Seán on the road pretty solidly supporting 'Skinny Lister', and 2016 has proved to be the most exciting yet. Supporting 'Recreations' and 'Grace Petrie' in the first half of the year. The second half saw the release of his single 'No Show' and resulted in a small full band sold-out UK tour. 2017 is up for grabs with new single 'Apple Core' and a month long solo UK headline tour. 

JAKE MORLEY - Ace/great/fab singer songwriter from London. He is certainly something else! Very Charismatic, warm and a fantastic singer and guitar player.  "Jake Morley and his impressive band more than have what it takes… an ambitious pop sound that is every bit as bright and sparkly as the main player himself - 4 stars" says Janice Long, Radio 2. "Jake Morley is not just your average bloke with guitar, he stuns crowds with his unique style and is always a show stealer" - says Tom Robinson, 6Music.
