Award winning Canadian-British singer-songwriter Fiona Bevan and longtime friend and collaborator Adam Beattie spent lockdown together playing music and streaming songs to the world from their gorgeous London base, the Red Velvet theatre they created.
Now, they’re inviting online and real-life audiences to experience the feeling, spirit and companionship of those original events at the Chapel of The Royal Foundation Of St Katharine, East London, which will be beautifully lit and luxuriously decorated like their lockdown den for a series of extra-special, intimate live shows called Red Velvet Sessions.
The sessions will host four hugely talented artists – Fiona Bevan, Gabriel Moreno, Samantha Whates, and Adam Beattie – over the four evenings between 9-12 December 2020.
There are exclusive in-person tickets available and an opportunity for those at home to stream the shows within their very own walls – DIY burgundy velvet walls and fairy lights are encouraged.
The Red Velvet Sessions will be streamed live through a rare, rich high-definition, multi-camera setup that promises an experience almost as good as being the church yourself. Early bird tickets are on sale now starting at £9.21 and available here.
Due to release her eagerly anticipated album in 2021, Fiona Bevan might not be a household name yet, but her songs certainly are. A hitmaking writer, she’s worked with Kylie Minogue on the current number 1 album, plus Lewis Capaldi, Matthew E. White and Natalie Prass, Tom Walker, Steps, Aurora and many more. Her collaboration with Ed Sheeran, ‘Little Things’ – became a number 1 hit in 13 countries for One Direction.
Red Velvet Sessions was born of Bevan’s longing to experience live music again following the pause of pop culture in 2020. She and Adam Beattie found creative salvation performing their new songs to a brand new online audience during lockdown, and resolved to share that experience with people in the real world as soon as they were able. The Red Velvet Sessions may just manage to make you not hate 2020, right before the year is out.
