Here is our Line-Up:
There is an innate intimacy to Ryan McNulty’s music- an outpouring of confessional songwriting that confides in the listener. As each song reveals a little more of a harboured memory or a lost lost love, what you are left with is the real feeling of a secret to keep.
Hailing from South London via Cornwall, his songs are laced with a fine mix of small town intimacy and big city despair. Recording modestly in studios and living rooms everywhere in between, his sound is honest and personal, recalling an era of the classic singer/songwriter.
Following his critically-acclaimed debut release ‘Feel’ in late February - featured on THE LINE OF BEST FIT and MUSIC WEEK amongst others - 21 year-old singer songwriter Dan Crossley grew up in suburban Telford, beginning to write songs as a young teenager - his lyrics reflecting his emotions and struggles throughout his childhood.
Needing an escape route from suburban life, Dan moved to London when he was 17 to pursue his music career full time. It seemed to have paid off, with his gossamer vocal quickly recognised and Dan being asked to perform at some of the most prestigious music venues in London including The Royal Albert Hall and the O2.
Dan followed on from his notable debut with another infectious pop banger ‘Nothing But Love’; a languid, electronic instrumental only serves to emphasise Dan’s optimistic lyrics and thoroughbred vocal, which was premiered on CLASH MAGAZINE. After the release of his second single, his debut EP ‘Feel’ was released in May, which premiered on WONDERLAND MAGAZINE. His single ‘Kryptonite’ was quickly picked up and supported by BBC Introducing and made the track of the week. This is a confident and polished step from a young artist that’s building a solid portfolio already as a one to watch.
21 year old unsigned singer/songwriter/producer from Portugal, currently based in London. RiTA moved to London from her native city of Porto to pursue a life in music. Having formed a full band, RiTA's next step is to continue growing her already impressive catalogue of songs.
Harizon is a young, upcoming rapper from Surrey who has recently released his first EP onto all major platforms including Spotify and iTunes. The EP, titled 'Another White Rapper EP' shows a rapper with a modern take on the Hip Hop genre.
With songs about himself, love, pain and many other themes, you can expect to hear meaningful and also comical lyrics - often accompanied with complex rhyme schemes & flows. His songs aren't always for the lighthearted, so be ready for some controversial lyricism and if you're easily offended you may want to cover your ears.
Be ready to be energised from the front of the stage all the way to the back of the room - and if you aren't ready to move, you may want to take a step back.
5 piece Pop/Soul band from Guildford producing original bangers.
