Longy & The Gospel Trash.jpg

LONGY is heading to Ipswich and bringing the Gospel Trash with him!

Coming to you from the seaside town of Southend-on-Sea in Essex, LONGY brings a mix of gut wrenching and carefully crafted lyrics to his self-proclaimed genre of music in the form of ‘Gospel Trash’. Characterised by a heavy beat, big guitars, and a wall of keys and trumpet topped off with cinematic lyrics, his sound mashes genres such as classical and jazz, hip hop with renaissance, rock and rhyme. With influences ranging from Bruce Springsteen, Buddy Holly, Nina Simone and Sam Cooke to Richard Ashcroft and Damien Rice, LONGY has a soulful and authentic sound that is typically built around a blues structure just either side of the pentatonic scale.
