A "Big Sing" in support of mental health charity "SANE"

Caffè Nero Terminal 2 - Saturday 27 February 11.00

Singer-songwriter, Melissa James, is making a bid to unite those affected by depression, and other mental health illnesses, through song. The singer - whose latest single Live Again was inspired by stories of mental health suffering - has been prompted to organise a “Big Sing” for UK-based mental health charity, SANE in order to promote awareness of mental health issues.

The soulful-folk singer, is inviting anyone and everyone who is willing and interested in joining the “Big Sing” to gather together as a group at Caffe Nero’s Heathrow branch to publicly perform backing vocals on “Live Again” alongside Melissa as part of the project called “Sing4SANE”. The singing event aims to raise awareness of, and money for, the charity SANE.

Caffè Nero - home of live music:

Caffè Nero in Terminal 2 Arrivals will be home to exciting live music on various dates throughout February. Enjoy some good food and be entertained at the same time. Unless otherwise stated, performances start at 10.30am.

Hannah Scott - 7 February 11.00

Hannah Scott

Much of the inspiration behind Hannah Scott’s music can be found in her affinity with Italy. A year living and working in Tuscany in her late teens provided the backdrop to her early work. She subsequently spent nine months travelling back and forth to the hilltop villages of Liguria to record her well-received EP Still Static.

Now she has finally found her musical home at Stefano Della Casa’s London-based label, Casa Music - or, as she puts it, her “own little corner of Italy”.

Hayley McKay - 13 February 11.30

Hayley McKay is an extraordinarily gifted and time served singer and songwriter from darlington, UK, who has immersed herself in music and performing arts throughout her young life.

In summer 2015, Hayley performed and wrote in Nashville, and returned to the UK to perform at Glastonbury opening the Toad Hall stage. She then went onto supporting legendary guitarist Albert Lee on his UK tour at The Sage and The Lowry.

Hayley performs her own material, as well as a wide range of covers, dependant on the type of gig she has. In 2015, she recorded an album at Astar studios with Mercury prize nominated producer Andy Ross, the album features 8 original compositions that draw upon Hayley's traditional roots while embracing a soulful pop sensibility to achieve her new British country sound.

Hayley is currently working on her original songs including a single release, and has some very exciting gigs coming up in 2016. She has recently been performing at Ronnie Scotts and The Troubadour, and performed on London Live TV."

Selena S - 14 February 12 noon

Selena S

Selena began singing regularly at school and church events and was rocked by the staggeringly positive responses to her voice. Encouraged strongly by her choir teacher, she began giving a career in music serious thought. After graduation, she picked up the guitar and focused on writing songs. “It was a huge challenge at first, but somehow it all came together my last year of college.”

In 2006, Selena independently released her debut self-titled album. After a nearly 10-year hiatus, Selena has released her latest single “Waiting in Vain,” a reimagined version of Bob Marley’s classic. Now that she resides in one of the most creative capitals in the world, Selena Seballo is ready to take the music world by storm.

Joe Waller - 20 February 11.00

Joe Waller

A massive lover of soulful singer-songwriters from a young age Joe would sing along to every track in the car on the way to school or a football match. When he turned 20 years old he thought about learning to play an instrument and one drunk Christmas evening bought a guitar for £65. Learning to play it began with a couple of minutes a day and progressed to more but he just couldn’t get to grips with remembering each chord. Only when he began singing while playing did the learning became easy.

6 months after buying that guitar he played his first gig to a crowd of 100 people supporting a friend’s band. That’s when he fell in love with music and with performing. Often referred to as a natural, Joe winces because he knows the huge amount of work he’s put into learning each new song and the literal blood spillage from practising so much.

Genia - 26 February 12.30

Genia

GéNIA made her London debut as a concert pianist in the Park Lane Group Young Artist Series, which was followed by concert tours in the UK, Europe and USA. Recent London performance venues include the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Southbank Centre, Olympia, Kings Place, St.John's Smith Square and St Martin in the Fields. GéNIA features as a soloist on the soundtracks of award-winning films "Paradise Grove" and "Bookcruncher" and her recordings and live interviews are regularly broadcast on BBC TV and Radio including BBC London Radio and BBC Proms. GéNIA often supports charitable causes; most recently she gave a gala concert for UNICEF. Her classical repertoire is diverse and virtuosically astonishing.

Melissa James - 27 February 12 noon

Melissa James

Stripped Back is the intimate and bold new release from London-based singer-songwriter Melissa James.

A return to the recording studio over the summer has produced an EP of acoustic songs which allows the stories behind the lyrics to unfold through the music. Her singing is beautifully accompanied by Tom Gamble’s guitar and Arthur Lea’s piano.

The stories told by Melissa’s songs – co-written with her collaborator, Ross Lorraine – tell of growth and hurt. Her first release since her 2012 debut Day Dawns, Stripped Back is a collection of candidly emotional songs whose combined effect is heartfelt and raw.
