The Shed challenges listeners with an ever-changing list of performers that the minds behind Smitty’s have curated to entertain and enlighten.

The Shed is always forward thinking, but most importantly, always good.
INMIRIAM is the new project from Ellie Rose Rusbridge inspired by the biblical story of poet and prophetess Miriam. Ellie's influences span a childhood steeped in scared choral music, traditional folk tunes from around the world and an adolescence that was soundtracked by Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Martha Wainwright. She recently completed an MMus in Creative Practice at Goldsmiths University where experimental pop and vocal music were at the forefront of her research and practice.
“Dusk-lit songs, strong and tender and sung in a voice that curls darkly at the edges in a way that’ll entice fans of Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor” – Time Out Magazine
“Some of the most honest music you are ever likely to hear in the capital... This particular singer’s vocals are just as resolute and unwavering as they are beautiful." -About Time Magazine
With support from Keeva:
When London-based recording artist Keeva quietly posted two songs online, she didn’t expect that they would attract the attention of Grammy-nominated production team Austin Jenkins and Josh Block (aka Niles City Sound), who immediately wanted to start working with the young singer-songwriter. The timeless feel of debut single Whiskey assimilates Keeva’s early love for the soul classics of her mother’s record collection, finessed by an ongoing obsession with the song-craft of country greats Willie Nelson and Patsy Cline – discerning tastes for a teenage girl growing up between Jordan, County Laois, and London.
