Brother Zulu is the merging of five distinctly different creative minds that creates a one-of-kind dynamic that has led to the band becoming BBC Artist of the Week, earning an Unsigned Music Awards nomination and ILUVLIVE Hotlist 2018 listing.
The Islas are a New Pop || Indie Rock band from the Sunny East of England, UK. Having met studying Music lead singer (Nathan Baverstock) and lead guitarist (Ross Allen) bounced off each other from the very start. Taking their different music tastes and sharing the ideas and influences that made them fall in love with Music in the first place - they managed to create a sound from Allen’s great melodic riffs and Baverstock’s subtle Baritone. With acoustic music having limitations, the band was created with the introductions of Ed Chalu on Drums and Archie Horrox on Bass. This added a whole new dimension to the sound and live performances - The Islas had formed.
Practising almost every day, The Islas are ready to release their debut EP “A Generation To Forget”. The song lyrics are harvested from youth and the experiences British Adolescents face throughout their journey into Adulthood. The anxiety, happiness and first loves - and everything in-between.
“Four guys who have the ability to steal anyones heart” - This is Noise.
Singer songwriter, actress, and London born and bred, Jade trained at both the BRIT School and Italia Conti, as well as working professionally from a very young age in the performing arts industry. After spending the past couple of years travelling and writing, Jade has grown into a more grounded and secure artist.
Although inspired by artists such as Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy and Bob Dylan, Jade doesn't try to be anyone or anything. If you asked Jade to describe herself or her music, she would tell you something along the lines of "I'm just me, I'm just Jade." She hopes that her music is reflective of that and if anything, hopes that her music will inspire people to be real and true to themselves. Jade's music is honest, with her only aim being that those who listen feel or take away something from it.
With influences such as John Martyn, Nick Drake, Magnetic Fields and Sufjan Stevens, Phil has been gigging around London and the UK since his school days growing up in South East London. Since releasing an EP online last year and launched at The George Tavern he has been performing with another project Lilycrush and is now picking up the acoustic for some solo gigs this year; bringing along a mixture of intimate, relaxed vibes and bluesy foot-stompers.
