Here is our Line-Up:
Wilford Social is a London based band made up of Bethie Hungerford (vocals), Mark Wilkins (guitar and vocals), Andre Roese (bass), and Carlos Basilisco (cajon and percussion).
The band played at Camp Bestival and Towersey Folk Festival as well as various venues in London in 2017. Recent shows include the Bedford in Balham and the Looking Glass in Hackney.
Mark’s musical background is in the rock and indie scene where he has played in bands at London’s dirtiest live venues. Bethie is from the other side of the musical tracks, where she trained as a classical singer specialising in Renaissance and Early Baroque music. Mark and Bethie have found a middle ground in writing and playing acoustic, harmony-driven songs drawing from a shared love of the singer-songwriter tradition. Andre and Carlos make up the rhythm section. Their backgrounds in Brazilian and Flamenco music have influenced the rhythms and grooves of the songs. Wilford Social’s music has been described as “indie-folk” and a modern acoustic version of Fleetwood Mac. A debut album of original songs is on its way.
Having gigged locally since the age of fifteen in and around Shropshire, Coryndon Bell is a singer-songwriter now based in London. Coryndon blends captivating guitar lines with passionate lyrics, taking inspiration from a wide range of bands and artists including John Mayer, David Gray, Cat Stevens, The Kooks, Arcade Fire and many more. Bell's debut EP 'Way Back Home' was released under Joe Bell on November 1 2015. The EP gained radio play on BBC Introducing on Radio Shropshire, with BBC Introducing DJ Jolon Kemp-Walker stating he 'fell in love' with one of the songs on the EP, 'Lightspeed.' Since then, Coryndon has been gradually building on his online fanbase, as well as performing across London and writing. Recently Coryndon finished 3rd in the Loco Music singer-songwriter competition and has played at venues across London such as the Fiddler's Elbow, Apples and Pears Bar and the Half-Moon in Putney. Coryndon released his first single 'Bangkok' in October 2017 and plans to release more music in 2018.
