Aziza & Finguz
Breakbeat soul duo Aziza & Finguz featuring Steel City music legend musician/producer Chris Finguz (Bare Knuckle Soul, UKJs, Afropean) and solo artist/singer Jessica Aziza. Over the summer of 2021, they dropped their debut EP “One By One” on new Sheffield label Sounds Like This Records, showcasing Aziza’s incredibly powerful vocals. It’s a collection of dark breakbeats/broken beats/drum & bass meets edgy soul/r’n’b vocals and it goes off. Especially live. They rocked stages at Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival in 2021 and 2022, and Gilles Peterson’s We Out Here Festival in August 2021 with their 4 piece live outfit which is heavy on the bass/beats. This is Aziza & Finguz’s debut performance at Dorothy Pax so get down early to check out some speaker-shaking Steel City breakbeat soul.

The band’s compelling sound is an amalgamation of Folk, Rock, Country and Doowop. The December Flowers’ seeds were planted in 2017 when talented singer/songwriter Gemma Gray and Lead Guitarist Joel Robson started performing as a duo on the Sheffield folk circuit. They were joined in 2018 by Shane Surgey and his Wurlitzer Piano after he watched them play at Sheffield’s Tramlines festival. With drummer Sam Doughertys addition in 2019, The December Flowers bloomed into existence. Since then, the December Flowers have performed across various venues in South Yorkshire.
