PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Faithettes began life as the band of multi-platinum-selling, Brit Award winning artist Paloma Faith. They have toured the world for over 7+ years, performing hundreds of shows worldwide including Glastonbury Pyramid Stage, Montreux Jazz Festival, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and countless sellout arena shows. They have made global TV appearances including The Late Show with David Letterman, and both Jools Holland’s Hootenanny and Later. Now they step confidently into the limelight in between tours with Paloma. They perform a killer set of soul and pop covers, fusing the taut energy of 60s RnB with the raw sweetness of 70s Soul, and have the tightness and vibe of one of the world's top live bands.

Faithettes fuse the taut energy of 60s RnB with the raw sweetness of 70s soul. Having began life as the backing band for multi-platinum-selling, Brit award-winning artist Paloma Faith, Faithettes have played hundreds of shows together, and luckily for us have decided to keep playing together in-between tours.
Like Paloma, many successful artists choose to showcase their band (Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds, Bob Marley’s Wailers, Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band), but not since The JBs (James Brown’s band) has a backing group stepped so confidently out of the shadows and into the spotlight.

Faithettes’ debut single ‘Me and My Baby’ was a dreamy, rose-tinted homage to 60s Christmas nostalgia, complete with stomping Motown bass and reverb-drenched ‘Wall-Of-Sound’ production. However, in a break from the 60s girl band tradition, all three singers stand as equals, switching effortlessly between soulful leads and rich harmonies.

Faithettes’ debut single was playlisted for three consecutive weeks on BBC Radio 2, and the Official Charts featured Faithettes in their contenders for Christmas number one 2016. 
The singers performed their arrangement of Silent Night live on ITV on Christmas Eve 2016, as part of ITV’s Christmas Carols broadcast.
