"SOLIHULL FESTIVAL LAUNCH PAD FOR SPACE ODIC SAMURAI"

Issued: 7 September 2010

SOLIHULL FESTIVAL LAUNCH PAD FOR SPACE ODIC SAMURAI

A melodic band of Celtic and samurai warriors from the Midlands are promising a performance of cosmic proportions at this month's Solihull Festival.

Space Odic Samurai will be aiming for the stars with the launch of their debut album 'The Eye' at Solihull Theatre Arts Complex on Friday, September 24.

The group have risen from the nucleus of former New Age pioneers China Doll whose '80s song successes included the international chart hit Turkish Delight, which went on to be voted BRMB Radio Record of the Year.

They will be performing original songs and classic rock, soul and jazz covers, infused with Celtic and Oriental rhythms and an idiosyncratic vocal style, from the new CD. The event proceeds are to go to the band's adopted charity Acorns Children's Hospice.

Lead singer Fay Goodman, who is also a world-leading martial artist under the guise o The Lady Samurai, will be joined by Martin Lucas (aka The Celturian) on acoustic guitar, and Hughie Thomas on saxophone, clarinet and flute.

As one of the UK's most versatile singer-songwriters, composers and instrumentalists, Fay Goodman not only fronted China Doll but has also sung and played instruments from the piano and guitar to the Japanese koto and shakuhachi for her own worldwide CD recordings, through her Birmingham-based production company Goodmedia.

Martin Lucas is a self-taught maestro of the acoustic guitar, whose dexterity and panache have won countless fans in the UK and America. His latest classical work 'Visions' has been recognised with a top-twenty chart certification from the International Association of Independent Recording Artists (IAIRA). BBC Radio WM has praised him as “the only person who makes the guitar sing like an orchestra”.

Fay Goodman, who will also be giving a Tessen fan demonstration, said: “Think beautiful instrumentals followed by quirky folk music and round this off with inspiring
ballads and you are half way to appreciating the music of Space Odic Samurai.

“Solihull Festival will provide the perfect launch pad for our newly formed band in terms of showing people who we are and what we are about. We can promise a wonderful evening of music and entertainment for all the family.”

Tickets, priced at £8 each, are available from Solihull Arts Complex, Central Library, Homer Road, Solihull B91 3RG (Tel: 0121 704 6962).
