Ever since performing at Henley Festival and the fantastic feedback she received, Purdy has longed to bring that same vibrance and standard of music to locals in Henley on a regular basis and for the past 3 months, has been doing just that to a sell out crowd.
Purdy's Pop-up as they have been coined are held on the first Saturday of every month a HOADS Studio in Henley-on-Thames. The jazz, blues, swing, crossover and pop sounds are set in a friendly, cosy atmosphere around round candle-lit tables to create a speak easy jazz club from another time.
The line-up is different each time, with Purdy inviting special guests each time from the crème de la crème of her musical friends. December 2nd Purdy's Pop-Up is host to arguably one of the finest jazz club in Europe; Chelsea's 606 Club. Head lining will be Georgina Jackson, fresh from supporting Radio 2's Clare Teal at The Royal Albert Hall. Joined by 606's founder, Steve Rubie and Purdy herself, Purdy is creating a night to remember for any local music fans.
Tickets are in short supply, so if you're unable to get a ticket for 2nd December, then fear not as Purdy returns for a New Years Eve Extravaganza with her Pop Up Family - Hugh Turner on guitar, Ralph Misraki on Bass and Stu Henderson on Trumpet Percussion and backing vocals. Seeing in 2018 with Purdy includes a complimentary glass of Prosecco & canapés upon arrival and promises an evening of sensational music, dancing and even a DJ who will take friends into the New Year in the style and vigour these nights have become known for. Early Bird tickets are now on sale from www.purdymusic.co.uk
As if this wasn't enough, Purdy has been busy releasing her new Double A-Side "Too in Love with Love" which is out now on limited edition numbered vinyl and digital download.
Both tracks were recorded in the same studio as The Beatles back in 1969 (Studio 2 at Abbey Road) with a 30 strong orchestra. The recording session can be seen in her new video of "How Did You Do That?".
When asked about the influences behind the tracks Purdy explains that "How did you do that" is about falling in love when you least expect it or even want to. It's the inner emotion of "How did you do that?" - but you don’t want it to stop - "Do it again". "Too in Love with Love" comes from "feeling a little hopeless about the world, realising just how much loveless behaviour we become exposed to from day to day, but when I sing this song it feels positive and reminds me and hopefully others not to give up on the thing that makes this life truly beautiful."
Purdy's track “Dream in Colour” from her album “Diamond in the Dust received almost 200,000 plays on Spotify with zero marketing budget. With influences such as Julie London, Peggy Lee and Nancy Sinatra, Purdy is also touring across the UK with her incredibly vibrant speakeasy Pop-ups. This all started due to a hugely well received launch night behind a little secret door in Purdy's home town of Henley-on-Thames. Tickets as well as Purdy's new tracks on vinyl and digital can be bought from the Purdy Store before general release on 20th October.
