Welcome To NightShades!

We’re two West London based singers/songwriters who believe that there’s still a place for songs combining strong melodies and memorable lyrics – if we can communicate that in under four minutes then that’s a result for us and the audience! We both write, sing and play guitar but we’re not so good at describing our kind of music – a bit of jazz, a bit of modern folk, some unplugged rock, you’ll just have to listen and decide for yourself, but judging by some of the reactions we get at gigs people do seem to like what we do.

Having been writing and playing together for some time now we’re returning to live performance with a new ‘unplugged’ repertoire, with guest musicians stepping in from time to time – so if you have any suggestions for possible venues, we’d be really pleased to hear from you – just send us a message!

Most of all, we hope that you’ll enjoy what you hear – we believe we write the kinds of songs you’ll want to hear, so please check out our music and videos on our ‘Media’ page? All the best and hope we’ll get to meet at a gig near you sometime!
Chris and Sam
