Rosen is a cyberpunk band fusing rock, metal, hip-hop, electronic and classical music to create the perfect storm.
The name is taken from Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, which is set in a dystopian cyberpunk world.
The cyberpunk genre depicts society as High Tech Low Life, so naturally that is the title of Rosen’s debut single that touches on social media and narcissism.
And Now This
AND NOW THIS first met up on the London open-mic jam circuit playing in improvised line-ups at music pubs in London. They have developed their own distinctive sound, influenced by Blues, Country, Rock and anything else they like the sound of. They write their own material and recently recorded three original songs at Panic Button Studios. These were released online earlier this year. They have all played in other local bands including Idle Hands, JellyBelly, Amps at Eleven, Methyl Blue, Shadow, Remedy and Lost Tempers.
AND NOW THIS line up: Putney local, Alan Curson - guitar, vocals Sunbury’s finest, Duncan Gurney - guitar Kingston hit man, Richard Garnish - drums Native New Yorker, Allen Gahn - bass, vocals
23 year old Joshua Ziggy has been crafting & maturing his sound for several years to create a theme that balances love, loss, hope and all that ties within, as a result of forever drifting between. With his supporting band Joshua Ziggy intends to come in to 2018 with fresh new material for his live Indie-Pop performances.
Furthermore, with new music to be released come in later in the year.

Since 2010, Tom Hannah has been the lyricist and spoken word artist for Chico Chica. Tom Hannah now brings his highly original one man show - a combination of latin jazz guitar and light hearted verse touching subjects as diverse as online dating, vanity, marriage, safaris, demolition, ambition, hypochondria and courting techniques.
Larkham And Hall
Americana songwriters Sarah Larkham and Elliot Hall create bittersweet, beautiful music with country elements, taking their influences from American folk, country and blues artists such as Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Johnny Cash. Together they layer harmony vocals onto thought provoking, poetic lyrics, all woven through with sparkling guitar, country style mandolin and emotionally charged harmonica. Emotional, heartfelt, honest music in the country-folk tradition, and words that will stay with you for a long long time.
Larkham & Hall were previously known as Elliot Hall & Rapunzel.
Elliot Hall won the Viper Music Bristol Songwriter Competition 2012 beating hundreds of hopefuls and as a result played St Georges concert hall in Bristol later that same year. He was told by an NME journalist - 'congratulations young man, this is the finest set of songs I have ever been asked to review'. and coined by the same journalist as a 'breathtakingly awe-inspiring rogue.'
Sarah Larkham had her concert hall debut at the Bristol Hippodrome aged only 15 with her brother and sister act Eternity, and was once offered a record deal with Rough Trade records. Also a songwriter, Sarah teamed up with Elliot in 2012 just after the competition win. 'An achingly soulful voice,' Bristol Folk Festival
Together, they enthrall audiences with spell-binding lyrics and melodies, often reducing crowds to tears or laughter. Equally at home on the guitar or mandolin, they happily switch instruments and take turns on lead vocals too. Their music is flavoured by a wealth of different influences - their frequent travels, their shared love for great folk and blues artists, current affairs and being human.
