Dirty Stop Outs @ The Murderers, Morganway, Maya Law, Lucy Grubb 18 March 2016

The gigs keep on coming thick and fast in Norwich Music City UK and the latest Dirty Stop Outs once again highlighted the incredible talent in the city and with the girls very well represented by Lucy Grubb, Maya Law, and Yve Mary B in Morganway.


The Murderers top bar was unusually chatty with office workers winding down at the end of the week but it was a shame this spilled over into Lucy’s set but she still had most people paying close attention to her beautiful voice and songs. There’s another chance to catch her at the Arts Centre next weekend for the sellout gig with The Thinking Men and The Vagaband for Tilting Sky.

This was finally my chance at long last to hear Maya Law for the first time, there has been much talk of this young new talent (just 16 I believe) who did really well at the recent Next Big Thing final, and I was not disappointed.  There’s a hint of reggae in her songs but despite some nervous laughter between songs during them she was powerful and sounded full of quiet confidence and came across as really likeable.  I loved the lyrics, strong and independent with a healthy attitude.

It was great to see Morganway here in a louder venue, their spacious songs and Yve’s voice sounded absolutely magnificent, despite Yve suffering with a cold.  Their sound filled the air and if any chatter remained it was not noticed with these soaring melodies and vocals.



Many thanks to Dirty Stop Outs, and Rob who did an excellent job on sound.


In previous days I also saw a number of gigs in pubs around the city, Sam Kelly’s Station House for Fine City Blues at The Murderers, Olinski at Cactus Cafe Bar, the mighty Rebel Lion at The Owl Sanctuary, plus Milly Hirst and Joe Quinn for BFR at The Plasterers. Joe played a superb and hypnotic solo set of 45 minutes or so, one of the longest solo performances I think I have heard from him, whilst Milly was as exquisite as ever showcasing a handful of new songs too.
