Radio City Sessions return for Autumn/Winter 2022

TAE Live and The Jackson Line are delighted to announce the return of their highly anticipated Radio City Sessions songwriter rounds.

Having enjoyed a hugely successful debut in autumn 2021, the Radio City Sessions have hosted some of the hottest songwriting talent in the UK country scene. The third season of the sessions will, for the first time, be welcoming some of the most exciting writers from the USA, as well as homegrown, UK based artists. These intimate sessions lift a curtain on behind-the-scenes secrets from some of the most popular hits.

Writers rounds and country music have gone hand in hand for decades, with The Bluebird Café in Nashville their spiritual home. Now, with a limited audience only, people are able to enjoy this ‘listening room’ experience in the birthplace of radio. Often only with a guitar or keyboard and their voice, these stripped back performances leave no place to hide, and often show the deepest emotions of the writers themselves.

“Keith (lead vocals for The Jackson Line) and I got together last year to work out how we could continue to expand the reach of country music in Essex. Having had such a great response to Tennessee Fields, we were sure there was a market for more country events in the county and songwriters sessions are such a fantastic way of engaging an audience and immersing them in the sparkle of country music. The team at Hot Box are equally as committed to supporting all genres of music, and it’s fantastic to be able to bring these evenings back for a third season!” Georgie Thorogood, TAE Live

Hot Box Live is the primary venue for live music in Chelmsford. With a bar stocking over 600 spirits, retro decor and a top-class sound system, this quirky location adds authenticity and a sprinkle of magic to any live performance.

Hosted by local country band The Jackson Line, the Radio City Sessions frequently bring laughter, tears and audience participation to Chelmsford, leaving every guest with a smile on their face at the end of the evening. They will be joined in October by an international trio of ladies – American artist Erin Bowman, Canadian born Tara Henton and UK artist Emilia Quinn will bring a sprinkle of glamour, award winning songwriting and emotive vocals to Hot Box for the first event of autumn 2022.

TAE Live is a new promotions company, founded by the team behind Tennessee Fields Festival, who are dedicated to bringing top class country music to Essex, as well as supporting local and emerging artists and songwriters.
