Through our music choice we hope to encourage a tranquil, mellow morning atmosphere, typically playing light classical or opera before 11am and then pick up tempo with Latin music or jazz which moves to acoustic and other cool genres in the afternoon.         If you want to listen to some of the new music we have recently selected just click on the radio at the top right of the page. 

We’ve supported talented grass root musicians (many of whom haven’t even been signed yet) for many years now and we allow them to reach and develop an audience through Caffè Nero.

Our Artist of the Month holds intimate free of charge gigs in our cafes across the UK, has exposure in our cafes via leaflets and posters and of course we play their music every afternoon during their month!

There is always something interesting and exciting happening with our music programme so check out what’s going on at the moment below 

Artist of the month

Leddra Chapman

Leddra picked up a guitar and wrote her first song before she became a teenager; what followed has been the growth, development and evolution of a young singer-songwriter building to a point in December 2009 where she released her first album ‘Telling Tales’. This was play listed by Radio 2 and received great acclaim and lead to a successful UK tour.

The beginning of 2013 heralded two new Leddra Chapman releases. First was a unique collaboration with The Body Shop and Teenage Cancer Trust: ‘Beauty With Heart’. A single penned by Leddra at the request of the partnership, the single was a charity release that garnered much acclaim. Hot on the heels of this release was a new EP entitled ‘The Crowds and Cocktails’. Lead-track ‘All About You’ was to become a live favourite and a staple on BBC Radio 2 who B-listed the song for an extended period of time and also made the track ‘Single of the Week’ at the station. To bring all this activity to a close Leddra played her biggest sold out London headline show to date at the prestigious Dingwalls venue in Camden Lock. 2013 came to a close for Leddra with a couple of hand-selected festival appearances and then the young singer songwriter decamped to the studio to record ‘My Mother’s Mind’.

The album is now being previewed in Caffè Nero and plans are already moving at a pace for the album release in 2014. Leddra will be playing in selected Caffe Nero’s through 2014 as well as the prestigious Cornbury Music Festival early in July.
