James Keith and The Moondogs
James Keith is an Alternative Rock artist from deep in the heart of the Texas hill country. James grew up singing and performing at his family's music venue, The Lazy Days Canteen. His first years of playing music were in his father's band "The River Rats" fueling his fire and love for music early on. Over the next 10 years James had the privilege of sharpening his skills while being groomed by seasoned performers. Over his 4 year career as an original artist he has shared the stage with many renowned artists including : Grammy Award winners : Los Lobos, Grupo Fantasma, Los TexManiacs, Los Super Seven, Augie Meyers and Grammy Lifetime Achievement winner - Flaco Jimenez. Also Monte Montgomery (Guitar Player Magazine's 50 Greatest Players of All-Time), Eric Gales, Savoy Brown, Del Castillo, and Joe King Carasco etc...
"James Keith is an artist who lets the power of the song lead the way regardless of genre or climate. It's all about real performances and classic musicianship. No smoke and mirrors." - Producer and bassist for Blue October, Matt Noveskey
PEDRICK are a pop/rock duo hailing from South London, consisting of twin brothers Theo and Bertie Pedrick. With a sound that lies somewhere between the radio friendly rock of Coldplay and the pop sensibilities of Tom Odell, they are back at The Half-Moon Putney to headline for the first time.
With a reputation for powerful, energetic live performances, 2018 promises to be an eventful year for perhaps one of London’s dark horses.
Brand new girl band from London
Native from the Swiss mountains, Marius Bear is quickly making a name for himself on the UK live circuit, with the voice and presence of... a BEAR. The 24 year old is about to release his first EP Sanity.
Serving as officer in the Swiss Army, Marius Bear only started singing 3 years ago, when prompted by a soldier that his superior should sing instead of shout commands 'with a voice like that'... and that’s exactly what Bear did.
After adding vocals to his guitar playing, Marius immediately found label interest back home. After busking in the streets of Europe he is searching the international stage though; Marius signed up to BIMM and moved to the UK, lives in a Catholic boys hostel, whilst writing songs and playing live. He has also been working on his EP Sanity with the Dutch film music composer and producer Reyn Ouwehand (among others: Kane, Mister & Mississippi, Benjamin Biolay, Vanessa Paradis). The EP release is scheduled for June 2018. The first single is the title track Sanity and will be released at the end of April 2017 worldwide.
Alex is a contemporary North East singer songwriter who pens acoustic pop songs with sing-along choruses and foot-tapping percussive strumming. He recently supported Swim Deep on their UK tour, and his influences include John Mayer, Ben Howard and The 1975.
