Purdy's Official New Single Launch - Thursday 25th April 2019

Thursday 25th April @ 8.00pm (Doors open at 7.00pm)

I am excited to be bringing my Purdy’s Pop Up to the heart of the West End with the launch of my next single ‘You Make Me Happy’.

This great night will open with my special guest performer ‘Waiting for Smith’ before I take to the stage with my amazing band to perform songs from my forthcoming album ‘Both Sides of The Clown’. I will also be joined by the fantastic artist called ‘Pilgrims Dream’. Jack Solomons is a wonderful, cool Moulin Rouge style venue and I look forward to sharing my new music here with you.

Purdy launched her debut album 'Diamond in the Dust' in 2016 on a UK tour supporting Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra  - including a finale show at the Royal Albert Hall, which gave rise to sensational reviews.

Often referred to as 'pop noir' with unmistakable Jazz undertones, Purdy’s distinctive sultry stylings and songwriting skills have led to collaborations with Jamiroquai’s Matt Johnson and Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse). Purdy's latest singles have been championed by Radio 2, BBC 6 music and BBC London.


Waiting For Smith’s songs are like the words in their name: of medium length, in plain English, with short gaps between. Most of all, they’re instantly familiar, as if you’ve heard them before in another room.

They have the groove of Dire Straits, the lyrics of Leonard Cohen, the piano of Billy of Joel and the jumping up and down of James Brown – all whisked in a Magimix and served piping hot with a sprig of basil.

By turns happy, catchy, poignant, funny, cool, romantic and angry – WFS write music you won’t be able to stop singing.

This summer they’re playing Wilderness, Latitude and a bunch of other festivals. They’ve had radio play all over the world – from London and Oxford to Melbourne and Toronto. Catch them while they’re humble.

Waiting For Smith - Once heard, never forgotten.


Based in London, Pilgrims' Dream is the project of singer/songwriter Rob Ouseley. 

Having played in the ten piece folk band Captain Kick And The Cowboy Ramblers in the early days of the West London Folk Scene, followed by 4 years serving as a Royal Marines Commando, Ouseley then suffered from 2 and a half years of debilitating, chronic illness which left him unable to sing and regularly bed-bound. Since overcoming this, he has concentrated on writing music and using recording software to create multi-instrument and multi-vocal part songs. 

Heavily influenced by 60's bands such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys as well as contemporary indie folk acts including Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes, Ouseley recently released his first single 'Ocean', which has seen him reach the finals of both the Hollywood Songwriting Contest and the prestigious American Songwriting Awards, and received international radio airplay.

Described as 'incredibly harmonious' by Indie Pop-Ups, and 'emotionally rich' with an 'ebullient and mesmerising sound' by Pop Culture Pipe Bomb, it contains lyrics that are both literal and metaphorical; they are about drowning, but they are also about being overwhelmed by various burdens in life. Written, recorded and produced by Ouseley, combining clear 60's influences as well as more modern folk influences, 'Ocean' is a debut that 'really pops in all the right ways' (Ear To The Ground Music).
