OneTaste is 7 in December.
It doesn’t feel that long ago that we hosted our first show in the Tavistock room at the top of The Bedford with Jamie Woon, Newton Faulkner, Paradox, Jono McCleery and Pepe Belmonte! What a night.
300 odd shows later, we have decided nothing would make us happier than to get back to
our roots and celebrate all the amazing artists that we have had the pleasure of listening to over the years.
We like the idea of a big show with SURPRISES, presents and amazing MUSIC & POETRY. Sounds good?
We’d LOVE you to join us!

We remember first seeing the Noisettes perform at a squat party in Leyton about 6 years ago…! Shingai Shoniwa literally blew us away.
Two years on from a second album Wild Young Hearts, awash with stomping electro-rock and galloping funk grooves, the London duo are set to return with their third album, a set of sleek pop songs steeped in soul, dizzy on disco and harking back to the days of blues and jazz greats.
Described as ‘the best live band in Britain’ by The Guardian, a recent London show saw Shoniwa charge in to the audience playing guitar and singing, clinging to a ladder suspended from the ceiling, a nod to the circus skills she learnt in her teens.
Many a person has stated: “With the Noisettes, it is always best to expect the unexpected” and for our 7th Birthday you had better hold on to your hats for one hell of a ride!

ESKA‘s voice that has been already heard by millions. As
a vocalist, ESKA’s legendary virtuosity has attracted the attentions of a host of acclaimed artists – the likes of Tony Allen and David Sylvian, to name a couple. Her vocal arrangements have credits on 3 Mercury-nominated albums. For her solo project, she chose to work alongside one of her most recent collaborators, artist-producer Matthew Herbert. As a conductor, ESKA has lead a 150-voice choir for Bobby McFerrin and is Music Director for Goldsmiths (London University) Vocal Ensemble who have performed with Matthew Herbert’s Big Band.
She is one super busy lady, with the most amazing voice to boot and by goodness we are so happy and excited to have her celebrate our 7th Birthday with us!

Born and raised in Manchester, Gideon Conn spent the greater part of his formative years ensconced in a state of daydream. After four years of sculptural bliss at fine art college, he over extended his self in an attempt to succeed in the construction industry as a labourer. The work was hard. He endured for eight months then packed it in to be an artist and musician and hasn’t looked back.
He’ll quite happily to sing to anyone, anywhere.
“There’s a song for every occasion and each song has its own identity and place within the repertoire. It all depends on what you’re feeling.”

Having been thrown out of school at the age of 14 for setting fire to her music teacher (he didn’t meet her unusually high standards) the artist formerly known as Stacey Dowdeswell, somehow managed to wangle a scholarship to the infamous Brit School (an institution that has so far managed to churn out the likes of Amy Winehouse, Kate Nash and Jamie Woon) and her path in life, it seemed, was set.
