BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter, Ace will be showcasing four unsigned UK R&B artists, alongside five special guests, around various UK cities this November as part of Everything R&B Live.

The series of shows will help develop the artist’s knowledge and connections within the live music industry and enhance their performance skills, as well as introducing them to new audiences.

They’ll be stopping by The Lubber Fiend in Newcastle on Monday 21st November with Newcastle-based singer-songwriter and soul artist Maxine and Sheffield’s R&B artist and producer TENN being selected as the emerging artists to perform at the show.

Joining the touring artists at each hometown date will be soulful vocalist Shak Omar (Liverpool), punchy pop star meets classical pianist Lois Rae (Manchester), the BBC Introducing tipped Jamilah (Newcastle), and Wolverhampton native Cariss Auburn (Birmingham). 

Ace adds, “We had a staggering amount of submissions from so many incredible R&B artists and vocalists from all over the UK and If I could take them all on tour with us I would but, we’ve managed to whittle it down to a number we believe not only showcases the amazing R&B talent we have in the UK, but also shines a light on the underrepresented cities making outstanding R&B music throughout the UK. I’m so excited to be bringing the first Everything R&B Tour to the masses, it’s going to be a moment you won’t want to miss” 

Tickets for the event are available here.
