Fay Hallam: a hugely respected Hammond organist, singer and songwriter, with over 10 albums to her credit.

Reaching prominence in the 1980’s with Wolverhampton’s ‘Makin’ Time’, Fay and Martin Blunt, with drummer John Brookes and ex-Prisoners frontman, Graham Day, then formed The Gift Horses – leading to Martin and John then forming The Charlatans.

Fay re-joined Graham, along with Prisoners bassist Allan Crockford and ex-Daggermen drummer Simon Howard, to form The Prime Movers.  This had a rockier, more progressive sound, with the ‘Earth Church‘ LP, hailed as LP of the year.

Fay has made over 10 albums, as Phaze, The Fay Hallam Trinity, and then as a solo artist; with her first 2015 album release, “Corona”.

Her second solo album, “House Of Now” (October 2016), received rave reviews, gaining airplay on BBC 6 Music and BBC London.

Always with a fresh and evolving sound, The Fay Hallam Group, comprising ex-Paul Weller collaborator Andy Lewis (bass), son Josh Day (piano), Kieran McAleer (drums), Jim Bishop (guitar), Angus Law (sax) and Kenneth Yarham (trumpet), have just completed their latest album, “Propeller” – released in April 2019.

Fay’s live set features songs from her entire back-catalogue, from classic Makin’ Time favourites, to the present day.

Expect an energetic, fun, Hammond organ and brass-driven, rhythm and soul-based journey through Fay’s critically acclaimed musical career!
