The Kings of R&B: Joe + Ginuwine + Tank + 112

  • Critics choice

This ’90s R&B revue features three male vocal acts from the golden era of the slow jam. Joe, known for tunes including 'I Wanna Know', has just released a back-to-basics new album intended to 'inspire today's generation to become R&B artists' – which is big of him. Lascivious 'Pony' star Ginuwine (real name, incredibly, Elgin Baylor Lumpkin), Tank and the reunited 112 join him on the bill.

Jessie Ware

  • Critics choice

A silky-voiced London singer who's tapped straight into the UK bass scene, Ware has collaborated with some of the smartest cats out there including Sampha, Joker, SBTRKT and Julio Bashmore. Her smooth R&B debut, 'Devotion', was one of Time Out's top ten albums of 2012, and the follow-up 'Tough Love' is sounding pretty special too. If you didn't get tickets to her intimate church launch shows for the new album, then make sure to catch the singer at this big gig on her home turf in

Empirical

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Few can match the maturity and coherence of this young band's incredibly lucid vision of what an acoustic jazz band should sound like today. Empirical are one of the most exciting ensembles on the current jazz scene, combining four young and incredibly talented musicians: saxophonist Nathaniel Facey, vibraphonist Lewis Wright, drummer Shaney Forbes and bassist Tom Farmer, who all display unrivalled zest and verve for the music. A must-see.

Fat White Family

  • Critics choice

Anyone remember The Metros, Peckham's straggly, sub-Libertine punk 'n' roll group? Well, through a strange alchemical process – via stints as The Saudis and Meat Divine, and gaining and losing members along the way – they've turned into one of London's most exciting young bands. Tonight Fat White Family perform from their totally screwed up debut album 'Champagne Holocaust' and drag their weird and wonderful dark psychedelia, which takes in Butthole Surfers and The Birthday

Alice Russell

  • Critics choice

This fine-voiced, intense UK soulstress fronts the Quantic Soul Orchestra and Bah Samba, and is in general puzzlingly undersung. Tonight she plays from her most recent album 'To Dust'.

Laura Marling

  • Critics choice

The elegant folk songstress plays a very low-key London date with her band (none of this 'solo acoustic' nonsense). Marling may look fragile, but she has a voice that resonates with depth and maturity, a great back catalogue of affecting songs, and a new album coming out in March. Tickets are available via a ballot – head here quick for your chance to buy one.

First Aid Kit

  • Critics choice

Recently tipped by none other than David Cameron, the Söderberg sisters return to London to ply their charming, lushly harmonised, narrative alt folk and country, with a set that'll likely lean on their new album 'Stay Gold'. Keep an eye out in the audience for Dave and Sam.

Wild Worlds

Artful Badger performs a heady mix of big party shindigs with live performance, music, theatre and interactive goings-on. They headlined last year's Vault Festival and are back this year with 'Wild Worlds, which promises 'breath-taking breakages... and anti-gravity time travellers'. Their residency at the festival culminates in the Love and Lightening Valentines Ball.

Jessie J

  • Critics choice

Motormouth, songwriter, ex-talent show judge and vocal acrobat Jessica Cornish arrives in London with a bang to perform her high-energy dance-pop and soulful, electronic R&B. Whatever you might think of her occasional habit of bludgeoning songs to death with her vocal cords, she is undeniably a top performer with a huge pair of lungs and the confidence to match.

The Nest Collective

  • Free

Mercury-nominated folk kingpin Sam Lee heads up this group of roots music enthusiasts, who are ‘curating’ a regular slot at this year’s Vault Festival. Every Wednesday and Sunday you’ll hear rising acoustic artists playing free showcases, and on February 12 and 26 there are late-night ceilidh parties (entry: £11.50) featuring the Ceilidh Liberation Front and Fitty Gomash.

Neneh Cherry

  • Critics choice

Late-’80s superstar Neneh Cherry is back in the game, creatively revitalised by a recent collaboration with Scandinavian avant-jazz band The Thing. Tonight she's singing songs from her first solo album this millennium, a collaboration with the brilliant electronic duo Rocketnumbernine (and produced by Four Tet). It's called 'Blank Project', and it sounds fantastic – don't miss its distorted but funky synth workouts live.

Hozier

Young and brooding Dublin singer Andrew Hozier-Byrne – who's rapidly rising and starting to sell out venues astonishingly quickly – juggles folk, soul and blues.
