Old Paradise Yard Open Studios Evening


Old Paradise Yard is a secret community of artists, makers, craftspeople, musicians, writers and entrepreneurs. Open Studios is a chance to explore the space, meet like minds and discover new artists. Jam Sandwich Live is thrilled to be running the outdoor live music stage presenting exceptional young talent with the help of residents Old Paradise Audio and I’klectik creative space.

The old school building lies surrounding a garden minutes from the South Bank, the theatres of The Cut and The Palace of Westminster.

For this special evening, we’re introducing the incredible, raw & emotive Rory Gilmore, hot new jazz trio Zeñel, astounding young solo artist Ray Wills and to finish the evening mesmerising Amy Fitz Doyley.

Doors open 6pm / Music at 6.45pm

RSVP for this FREE evening of discovery.




In this concert you’ll be taken on a journey. Through music, poetry and  storytelling. Amy Fitz Doyley aims to demonstrate what freedom of expression and creativity looks and feels like to her.

After spending the past year performing & writing as part of collective The Se7en Ei8hts & supporting the likes of Gregory Porter, Roy Aires and Public Enemy in concert, Amy is now forging her way forward as a solo artist in her own right.

Check out this video of Amy’s cover of Mayer Hawthorne’s ‘Green Eyed Love’ from the Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2016.



18 year old Ray Wills is an emerging artist that will knock his audience off their feet with the combination of his intricate guitar playing and delicate yet powerful vocals…

Inspired by the likes of Jeff Buckley and and Bill Withers and following in the footsteps of his mother who was a jazz singer, Ray works tirelessly and strives to one day impact the music industry on a global scale.

An exciting young talent fresh out of sixth form, Ray Wills has ventured from his hometown of Reading to chase his ambitions of becoming a successful creative performer.


Rory’s unplugged performance at the last Old Church Sessions had the whole room silently captivated. He has been writing songs on and off since a young age in various bands and outfits, most notably Flags who he was with for five great years. The beginning of 2016 saw a return to writing and performing solo.
Raised on Nick Drake and John Martyn before graduating to Marilyn Manson and Marshall Mathers, the former are more evident in Rory’s music, although he has been known to spit a bar or two.
Look out over the coming months for a free release of a collection of songs via Facebook page and Soundcloud.

Zeñel is a hot new trio made up of Zoe Pascal (drums), Noah Stoneman (keys) and Laurence Wilkins (trumpet). Meeting through the young jazz scene in London, this trio (ages 15-16yrs) come together to create original music, applying their jazz improv nature to other more unorthodox influences, such as rock, electro, hip hop, folk and even AfroLusophone.

Their level of skill has earned them positions on the Top 10 Best UK Young Drummer of the Year (2015 & 2016) & finalist at BBC Young Musician Jazz Award 2016. Expect great things from these 3!
