Kyla Brox, along with a four piece backing band of the highest order, features at this Sunday’s Blues Session in the Hope Tavern.

Kyla’s voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer’s art; turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis.

Born in Lancashire in 1980, she was the late product of the marriage between Victor (Caiaphas in the original cast recording of Jesus Christ Superstar) and Annette (the ‘maid by the fire’ in the same.

Kyla joined the family business in 1992, singing with Victor on stage at Band On The Wall at the age of 12, and performing with his regular touring group shortly afterwards.

In 2000, she accompanied her father on an extensive tour of Australia and in 2001, back in Manchester, she formed a duo with Danny Blomeley and from there the Kyla Brox Band was born

They plied their trade in Victor’s old stomping grounds in North West pubs and clubs, before a career-making performance at Colne Blues Festival in 2002 sealed Kyla’s reputation as the first lady of the British blues.

The Holton le Moor show starts at 4pm and the door charge is £8.
