Open Mic Session with Fabian
Featuring Burning Out (Acoustic)
After a successful debut hosting Chester’s best open mic session Fabian is back for some more and this time he’s bringing Chester indie outfit Burning Out in for a feature acoustic slot…
22 year old London-born singer-songwriter Fabian Belassie is rapidly becoming a name to watch out for. His reputation as a compelling performer has grown through regular appearances at open mic nights, acoustic shows and festivals around the north-west of England, where he has been at University for the last 3 years.
Inspired by the rich music heritage of the area – The Beatles, The Smiths, Stone Roses, Joy Division, New Order, Elbow as well as contemporary RnB and pop – Fabian writes from the heart about love, loss, longing and, most of all, hope. Whether playing piano or acoustic guitar, his rich, emotive voice is the glue that brings it all together.
Fabian has supported up-and-coming UK singers Lucy Rose and Billy Lockett and is due to start his 1st EP this Spring. Hear Fabian’s music and come and say hello atwww.facebook.com/FabianBelassieMusic
