INDYA & Secrets Of Mariana Live at Percy's Cafe Bar, Whitchurch

What's happening?

POW Promotions and Percy's Cafe Bar proudly presents...
Indya (Meaning gorgeous person) was devised by Natalie Indya West in January 2015.
Natalie studied music & Dance at The Brit school of Performing Arts & Technology. A major Focus within her BTech Diploma course was Micheal Jackson, and Fred Astair. Natalie performed in Musicals FAME, The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, Barry Manilows Copacabana! & Jack The Ripper. She had also danced behind various artists on the Brit Awards, as well as being in music videos for Busted, and One Direction (Thats What I go to School For). Natalie furthered her Musical skills at CPA Romford, Essex studying for a professional diploma in Musical Theatre, and performed at professional Panto Cinderella & Jack and the beanstalk.
After being advised that she had a fantastic ROCK voice on stage, Natalie decided to kick off her own Music Career with Rock Band INDYA.
With a heavy influence of Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Deep Purple, Madonna, Micheal jackson, Amy Winehouse, Marilyn Manson & Joe Bonamassa Natalie set out to incorporate all influential styles into her own Taboo Rock n Roll Music. She studied Blues roots such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Rory Gallagher & Eric Johnson. She then studied SKA and Reggae with influences from Bob Marley, ub40, Johnny Nash, Big Youth, Sister Nancy, Tanya Stephens, Madness..... she also integrates these trends into her records. Not only does Natalie songwrite, but she also produces quite a lot of her own music. One of her biggest fav Bands of all time was Ace of Base, hence the synth sounds in Indya's records.
Indya has gone on to gig with the likes of Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds, Space, EMF, Toploader, The Soap Girls, Dorja and has had the privilege of supporting Republica twice in the same year (2017) Natalie has collated with and written for MC NEAT (Ignite It) & Sunny Andrea - Goddess(Peter Andre sister in law) on the side of her rock career as experimentations. Other pop songs include Supergirl, Chemical Reaction, Rich Boy, If you Don't Want Me, and Rewind Love.
Indya has played Festivals such as Camden Rocks, Glastonbudget, Girls That Rock Festival plus lots of live sessions on BBC Radio Kent. Indya are also regular players at METALWORKS in Camden. She also performed at Winterwonderland & had a Live interview on BBC Radio London. Indya has frequent plays on Kerrang!Radio, BBC, Metal Mayhem, Total Rock, Team Rock, Radio X amongst hundreds of other stations.
The start of Indya’s Rock Career didn't quite go as planned, after being slung out & barred at her own gig in Stratford at The Cart & Horses Venue (Home of Iron Maiden) for having a podium dancer on one of the speakers! But its Rock & Roll, and what the venue didn't realise was at the time, this was part of the musical act.
Her music video "Tha final Line" features Johnny Doom from Kerrang!Radio and has had spins on Rolling Stone & MTV.
Indya has featured in powerplay Rock Magazine, Moshville Times, Daily Star, National press, With Guitars, Planet Mosh and hundreds more. Her single "Insane Love" was bigged up by Celebrity Jodie Marsh in an online video. An essex acquaintance having lived in Romford for 3 years.
With a Glamorous Look, Big Curly Hair, sparkles, fluff and Leopard Print, Indya is certainly an entertainer. She dances on stage to her own music with an African street style. Her talent is of prowess. Indya is joined sometimes (mainly at bigger shows and festivals) by her glam rock chick girlfriends. Performing with Indya is one huge party!
The band lineup consists of:
Natalie Indya West- Songwriter/ Vocals
Save Blackjack- Bass
Joel Day- Drums
Andy Basiola- Guitar
With special guests...
Secrets of Mariana
Secrets of Mariana are a five piece melodic metal band hailing from Birmingham, UK - the home of heavy metal. Combining huge catchy riffs, beefy drum tones and a voice that effortlessly flits between aggressive screams to soft melodies, Secrets of Mariana create a vibrant and refreshing sound.
Their debut EP "Reach" made an impressive impact, with tracks such as "Chinese Whispers" setting the tone of what to expect. In complete contrast, the group's ballad "Lost" is a particular fan favourite boasting haunting lyrics and beautifully written melodies .
The follow up release, "No Escape", (released in 2016) was highly anticipated amongst fans, who packed out The Flapper in Birmingham for the band's EP release show. Showing a heavier side still rich with melody, driven by bold guitars and energetic drums, "No Escape" shows the bands growth and development in their song writing abilities. Main single "Eat Me Alive" is a power house anthem that continues to showcase the bands talent and goes down a storm at shows.
The band have aimed to capture their sound the best they can on CD but nothing can beat the pure intensity and passion of a Secrets of Mariana live performance. They have played alongside some of the best up and coming bands on the live circuit including, The Loved and Lost, I Saw The World Burn, Lost Alone and Sertraline, taking the stage by storm and making a lasting impression on their audience.
Secrets Of Mariana are:-
Amy - Vocals
Ash - Guitar
Matt - Guitar
Adam - Bass
Nick - Drums & Backing Vocals
For fans of: Marmozets, Flyleaf, Killswitch Engage and Finch.
