Variety Cafe: Eddie Smith and the 507

Variety Café is a series of free lunchtime concerts supported by Kingston University. The programme offers an exciting mixture of emerging artists and alumni of Kingston University's music department.

Eddy Smith & The 507 write, arrange and produce their music together. They are a soulful blend of Blues, Rock and Pop with musicians from varying musical backgrounds. Their influences range from Ray Charles and Otis Redding, to Joe Cocker and The Eagles. Their music has been played on radio stations all over the UK, including those at the BBC. Strangers (Since I've Been Loving You) was featured on the cover CD of the internationally sold The Blues Mag - they were included in the magazine's "Bands To Watch" section. Since the release of their debut single, Eddy Smith and The 507 have been booked for headline shows at popular London venues, such as The Bedroom Bar, The Big Easy, and The Troubadour Cafè. They have also made main-stage appearances this summer at Clarence Park Festival and Wilkestock, opening up for bands such as The Subways and The Mystery Jets.

Eddy Smith and the 507 have beaten thousands of acts to be named the UK's best Unsigned band of 2015.
