A rebirth of Soul and Motown retro sounds, with a modern twist. Stephanie McCourt is an award winning singer/songwriter currently working on her E.P at F/H Block Music, based in the renowned Ealing studios. F/H block music has produced some of todays music greats; Sam Smith, Emeli Sande, Zayn Malik and Naughty Boy to name a few. Stephanie McCourt's E.P is due for release in the coming months.
Considered a pioneer of the South African music industry, Garth Taylor is a chart-topping singer-songwriter and recording artist, with a move to the capital planned for 2019. Garth was personally handpicked by Sir Richard Branson to perform at his son’s wedding in 2013 and he has shared the stage with legends like Simply Red, Shaggy, Jonathan Butler, Brian Mc Night, Phil Fearon, Judy Boucher and the late Brenda Fassie.
Spanish green are a new indie rock band with hook-driven post-punk influences. Made up of salesmen, scientists and guys tattooed with exploding chickens, from Wandsworth and Reading town.
With her clever lyricism, raw maturity and laidback pop with folky undertones, LAKY, previously known as Kyla Stroud, is sure to charm you.
Taking inspiration from eclectic 70s and 80s music, including classics like Earth Wind and Fire, Joni Mitchell and even Dolly Parton, as well as more current names such as LP, Christine and The Queens and John Mayer, LAKY has created her very own sound and is about to explode on the scene. Keep your eyes peeled!
Isobel is a Singer-Songwriter originally from Wiltshire, now based in South London whose 'Smokey and Elegant Tone' (musicunbuttoned.co.uk) has been compared to that of KT Tunstall and Bonnie Raitt. Isobel accompanies her singing with tuneful percussive acoustic guitar, with strong chord patters. Isobel's music is an eclectic mix of Folk, Blues, Country and Pop, which gives her song writing an unusual - yet infectious - edge. Isobel recorded her debut E.P in 2012 which went on to be featured on BBC Introducing UK and aired on many UK radio staions. Isobel is set to record a new exciting E.P in November this year.
