As part of the PureGold season, we present the final degree shows from students on the MMus in Popular Music.
With performances by:
Half-Polish, half-Ecuadorian singer, guitarist, producer, and actor based in London. Every time he performs, he takes his listeners on an emotional rollercoaster ride. It would be difficult to match Yaszczuk with any contemporary radio scene but a very determined soul could finally position him somewhere at the crossroads of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, and Ben Howard, with a little back alley towards rap.
Through his music, Yaszczuk tells stories with characters in them, although these are often far from good and merry. They invite audiences to experience grotesque, mystery and darkness in the context of love and passion. As the artist himself says, ‘what happens in those stories, stays in those stories.’
Mark Hegan is an Alternative singer/songwriter hailing from the seaside town of Bangor, Northern Ireland. With previous musical endeavours garnering the artist airtime on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 1 Introducing, Mark promises to pack a punch when it comes to performing songs filled with rousing lyrics and soaring melodies fit for stadium sing-alongs. Now currently based in London, Mark's future looks bright with the release of his debut single, "Skyward" in August 2019.
Valeria Pozzo is an Italian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who draws upon elements of jazz, pop and folk. With her songs Valeria opens a window into herself and shares something very personal and real. Her deeply emotive, authentic and captivating voice is an emotive catalyst. It triggers thoughts, feelings and memories.
