Hannah Aldridge is back and she's celebrating the 10 Year Anniversary of her debut album "Razorwire".

Hannah grew up on the muddy banks of Muscle Shoals—her birthright is music and Alabama. A reckoning between her coming-to-age in the South and a lifetime of trying to create an identity outside of it, her songs strike a delicate balance between rebellion and self-discovery. With a voice equal parts gritty and melodic, Hannah took to the road, entertaining crowds in ten countries and three continents with her acclaimed debut album Razor Wire, superb follow-up Gold Rush and Live in Black and White - a beautifully captured live album recorded in London, England.

In 2023 Aldridge expanded her artistic vision with the ambitious, cinematic Dream of America, which was released on Swedish alternative indie label, Icons Creating Evil Art. It peers through the lens of fading Hollywood starlets, charming psychopaths and weary vagabonds - navigating society's underbelly through dark, romantic vignettes.

Her music treads a fine line between the genial charm of Americana, and the raw, hypnotic and occasionally electronic stylings of what some might like to call 'noir indie pop'. Deploying a charming blend of power and vulnerability, Aldridge delivers her stories with all the conviction of a church bell ringing out through the streets of a small Alabama town.

Hailing from the vibrant and rich music scene of Melbourne AUS, Katie Bates has a heart steeped in great and spirited American music - from The Flying Burrito Brothers and The Band to Nirvana. But there's many other things at play in Katie's music. With heavy influence of the grunge and grit of artists such as PJ Harvey, Garbage and Audioslave and aims to blend both her love for Americana/alt-country with alt rock and grunge. Music you can both two-step and head bang to.

"Sultry, intriguing and provocative, with a sound that turns satisfyingly, defiantly snarling, evoking PJ Harvey." - Sophie Hamley, Sunburnt Country

A500 Music aim to present quality live music in a friendly and intimate environment.

We seat our audience at tables in a cabaret style and because we always hope to be near capacity, we allocate seating to our guests according to when they purchased their tickets.

By inviting you to bring your own drink, we are making the evening an inexpensive as well as enjoyable experience.

Unfortunately drinking glasses will no longer be available on the night but we will still be providing free hot drinks.

Coming up

We are currently talking to artists and putting together our program of music for next year, so stay tuned for exciting news of acts old and new who will be coming to Fulford in 2025
