Originalrock.net is streaming live on Facebook a pre-recorded experience in aid of Mind

https://www.mind.org.uk/  https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/originalrock).

The show will take place on Sunday 5th July 2020, 6pm – 10pm on Facebook live (https://www.facebook.com/OriginalRock247/ https://www.facebook.com/events/2044282545705769/) and will include some of the biggest emerging talents the music industry has on offer right now. 

Bristol quartet Phoxjaw are also offering a signed vinyl of their latest album ‘Royal Swan’ coming out this Friday, to one lucky winner who donates! 

North London artist Natalie Shay has been added to the line up with pop/rock 3-piece The UMA’s frontman Phil Marsh performing a solo set and Leeds’ punk trio High Visions’ Zyggy performing a special acoustic set. Also announced for the evening is Newcastle’s newcomer Andrew Cushin.

Pop/rock 3-piece The UMA have just released their brand new single Fire. The thumping euphoric verses are led by frontman Phil Marsh’s soaring vocals, and build into the anthemic chorus with vigour. The track is paramount to The UMA, as it’s the first song they wrote as a band.


Combining bombastic double-time beats, memorable choruses, and introspective lyrics with a DIY attitude and work ethic, High Visions are the hybrid pop-meets-skate-punk band you never knew you were waiting for. The band have just released their new EP ‘A First Date With Imposter Syndrome’.


Natalie Shay is a 21 year old multi award-winning‚ indie pop/rock artist from North London. Natalie’s latest EP ‘Naked’ was released earlier this year (https://open.spotify.com/album/3cM6ffZsFGmuaoykAFHFUy) and her music video for ‘People Like Me’ has achieved near on 30,000 views on YouTube.


Shay’s talents have found herself performing to sold-out audiences at some of London’s most iconic and renown venues‚ including The Roundhouse‚ Ronnie Scotts and Brooklyn Bowl‚ O2.

Newcastle’s 20-year-old newcomer Andrew Cushin is quickly building a reputation in an old school, word-of-mouth style. His latest single ‘Waiting for the Rain’


has already gone down a treat with fans. The track was posted on social media and it quickly amassed 20,000 views without any promotion or him having any existing profile. It even captured the attention of Noel Gallagher, who praised Andrew’s ‘great natural voice.’

These acts are all added alongside the already announced up and coming alternative pop artist GIRLI who will be performing alongside Southampton alternative rock band Toreador.  Southend’s  Asylums will also be showcasing a set on the evening as well as Layla Kaylif who will be performing her latest single ‘As I Am’.  What’s more, some artists/bands will also answer all of your questions in a special Q & A during the Facebook live stream. 

Mind’s message is simple, ‘for better mental health’ and right now it is even more important to support charities such this one with the UK’s lockdown taking its toll throughout the nation.

Solent Mind, the leading mental health charity across Hampshire, will also benefit from the money raised. The charity makes sure anyone with a mental health problem has somewhere to turn for advice and support within the area. They offer a range of high quality services that aim to improve mental wellbeing and we campaign to raise awareness and improve understanding of mental health. Solent Mind are there so that no one in our diverse community has to face a mental health problem alone. For more information visit http://www.solentmind.org.uk/.

£10 could allow Mind to send essential information booklets about mental health to 40 people and if you donate https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/originalrock that sum of money OriginalRock.net will send you the whole pre-recorded evening for you to keep.
