The line up
One the most respected and influential characters of the spoken word scene, Kate returns to OneTaste after her nationwide tour with the recently signed ‘Sound of Rum’. Her debut book and CD ‘Patterns’ will be available with a live recording, over an hour of poems and over 40 written. Kate will be going for a throat operation the next day so this is the last chance to hear her with her current Tempestual nodules.

One third of Park Bench Poet and also one of the masterminds behind Natty's music for the past few years, Bear is now branching out into his own solo material. We are so excited to be debuting this at OneTaste. Feel good vibes all night long whenever Bear is on stage.

A former member of Elova, the superbly talented Tanya Auclair graces the stage with her highly anticipated solo material. Tanya’s warm intimate mix of DIY drums, layers of vocals, intricate uke, guitar melodies and touches of
electronica promises to be something never before heard and never forgotten.

After selling out the National Theatre with his superb one man show ‘The 14th Tale’ and after finishing his nationwide tour of his new piece ‘Untitled’, the fantastic Inua Ellams kicks off his next tour ‘Candy Coated Living Room Tour’. To pre-launch his 4th book entitled “Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars”, Inua will be reading a selection of poems from the book. An early Christmas treat for all of us!

Kate Tempest's hip-hop 3 piece will be performing a beatsy acoustic set, mixing spoken word with raw grooves from Archie Marsh and Ferry Lawrenson. Not to be missed.

“Carlsberg don’t do live Christmas Carol Singing’ … but OneTaste friggin do!”
Fresh from supporting Aloe Blacc at the Jazz Cafe, the beautiful Stac will lead the OneTaste choir into a medley of Christmas Carols to ignite the festive spirit in us. As always when these ladies get together, this promises to be something very special and very unique.
