Mornings would be so much harder without the radio and a cup of freshly brewed coffee and this combination of caffeine and music is enjoyed by people the whole world over.
The Coffee Music Project blends the coffee and music worlds into one, giving aspiring artists and songwriters a platform to share their passion for music and coffee culture, while raising money and awareness for Project Waterfall.
After several weeks of hard work and fantastic musical talent, it all came down to one night at the O2 Academy in Islington – the final
Semi-finalist Cat Maria – who’d never performed live until the project – warmed us all up with her song Like Coffee
and then the final round got underway.
Stand out performances came from Rothwell, with her sultry voice, acoustic musician Sam Brett and Rich Stephenson’s hilarious song Coffee Makes Me Do Things
However, it was Jessica Murae ft Ben Colman who had the crowd shouting and cheering and although there were just a few points in it, the judges seemed to agree, awarding them first place in the 2015 competition.
1st place – Jessica Murae ft Ben Colman
2nd place – Rich Stephenson
3rd place – Rothwell
The other talented finalists were:
- Belle and the Busker
- Joseph Lofthouse
- Rich Stephenson
- Sam Brett
Huge congratulations to Jessica and Ben
who will be performing at both the London and Amsterdam Coffee Festival, and to all of the finalists and judges for their hard work and dedication.
