Four emerging Gen Z artists will perform at the House of Papa night on 29 September, at an intimate gig venue in North London to usher in the return of live music. Performances will be broadcast globally via reunited members of the ByteSquad TikTok house, for people everywhere to enjoy good times again with Papa John’s.

Hotly tipped and hot off the summer festival circuit, the House of Papa line-up includes:

Headliner BaggE @baggeofficial

North London neo-soulstress, who blends classic soul song writing with modern, cutting-edge ideas and lyricism, BaggE bounces back onto the live scene after being bed bound and out of the studio with Covid during the pandemic.  Her third live performance since restrictions eased at the House of Papa will see her perform ‘Hush’ - her first ever song released on SoundCloud.

Her big soul vibes don’t just end at the House of Papa night either.  She is also the campaign artist for Papa John’s Fresh Soul campaign where, together with Brother Music, she co-wrote the campaign track.

Cathy Jain @cathyyjain

Fresh from Latitude this summer, hotly-tipped 17-year-old Cathy will be treating the crowd at House of Papa to the sounds of her hazy, sun-kissed, R&B-tinged alt-pop. Building layer after layer of vocal harmonies and instrumentation into a genre-mix that’s both explorative and psychedelic, Cathy showcases the singular voice and slick bedroom production skills behind her upcoming EP release ‘Artificial’ on 5 November.

A big fan of playing live, Cathy will also perform her debut single ‘Cool Kid’ which was hailed as Taylor Swift-inspired through its confessional storytelling.

Finn Askew @FinnAskew

Whether performing live to festival crowds or busking in his Somerset hometown, 20-year-old Finn channels his energy into genre-defying bedroom-produced music. Arguably the best thing to come out of the countryside since Kerry and Kurtan, Finn got his big break globally when Taeyong from K-Pop group CRAVITY shared his debut single, ‘Roses’, in January, which helped him to rack up 15 million Spotify streams in just six months.

Brooke Coombe @brookecombe

Scottish rising star Brooke will be performing live at the House of Papa before supporting Miles Kane’s 2022 UK tour. The songstress has rapidly gone from performing covers in her bedroom to being drafted in last minute to perform an Artic Monkeys’ cover at Parr Street with The Coral, James Skelly & Blossoms.  

Fresh from performing a sold out show at Glasgow’s King Tuts Brooke will be putting her confidence to the metal again as she performs for the House of Papa crowd.

ByteSquad members Shauni, Jake, Em and Loz will be reuniting at the House of Papa gig night for one night only, to get the party started with other UK and international TikTokers participating virtually, broadcasting the party live as the first coordinated global TikTok house party of its kind.

 

Performances and after-party highlights from Papa John’s House of Papa will also be shared online via music partner NME, from 6pm on 5 October, and on Papa John’s UK YouTube channel.
