Emeli Sandé said: “I’m honoured to be kicking off this fantastic series of ‘Sofar x Signia in aid of Help Musicians’ gigs.

DAN O’NEILL, SIGNIA CREATIVE
Dan O’Neill, Head of Signia Creative added: “Signia are thrilled to be partnering with Sofar Sounds and Help Musicians on this exciting series of shows.
“When the idea of this philanthropically focused, live gig series was first hatched by the team here at Signia Creative, we never dreamt we would have the pleasure of working with Emeli on our first show – so a big ‘thank you’ has to go to Emeli and her team for their support. We Love Music, We Help Musicians.”
“AS CEO OF SIGNIA IT GIVES ME GREAT PERSONAL PRIDE TO SEE THIS EXCITING, PHILANTHROPIC PROJECT COME TOGETHER WITH A SUCH GLITTERING STAR AS EMELI HEADLINING.”
CARNEGIE SMYTH, SIGNIA
Carnegie Smyth, CEO of Signia, said: “As CEO of Signia it gives me great personal pride to see this exciting, philanthropic project come together with a such glittering star as Emeli headlining.
“When we originally sat down with Dan and conceived the idea of ‘Signia Creative’ we all agreed on several things: We had to do things differently, we had to be authentic, we had to give something back to the creative communities we serve and, lastly, we should always be innovative. ‘Sofar x Signia in aid of Help Musicians’ ticks every box. I can’t wait for the show.”
Tom Lovett, Global Commercial Director at Sofar Sounds, said: ”Sofar Sounds is incredibly excited to help put on a gig in support of such a worthy cause.
