Classic mix of alternative-country and folk combined into reflective music. Thoughtful singer/songwriter with strong influences from many eras.
Ben Roberts is a solo singer/songwriter with a unique vocal tone, after supporting the likes of Gabrielle Aplin and Newton Faulkner, Ben has started to sell out his headline shows in London as well as playing major festivals including Glastonbury and BoardMasters. Ben has recorded two lives sessions with BBC Introducing and a Mahogany Session. With an upcoming EP release taking influences from Tom Walker, Rag 'N' Bone Man and Ben Howard, Ben is looking to attract interest from record labels.
Martin Yates is a UK singer/songwriter. With a natural gift for music, Martin learned his craft for not only singing, but also performing and songwriting by the time he was 18. Martin describes his songwriting process as a therapeutic journey in which he tells stories of love, loss and loneliness. In September 2015, Martin began working on his debut EP, collaborating with songwriters and producers throughout the country and the world.
Friends from school, alt rockers Flashfires began making waves in and around the London music scene, playing shows with established acts like The Hoosiers, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Ash, The Rifles, FLYTE, The Subways & JUDAS.
They received radio airplay on both of the UK's biggest stations, BBC Radio 1 and Radio 2, for their songs Manshark and Shy. Their single Shy lead Radio 2 DJ Jo Whiley to comment 'Much promise me thinks', attracting attention from Linda Serk who invited them to an interview on BBC Introducing.
Multiple trips to Sacramento, California at J Street Recorders Studio has taught them new songwriting skills and saw them record over two albums worth of songs.
Legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page previously accepted an invitation to watch Flashfires at London’s Water Rats, later offering advice to the band giving them that spark needed to pursue their future.
