Line Up

A new Indie-Pop act with folk and African influences. Originally from Wales and currently based in London. Imagine Paul Simon and Vampire Weekend, with catchy hooks and smart lyrics. Eager to make a splash and create an unforgettable live experience.

"Jana melds acoustic Folk-Rock with anything from Pop, to Country and even a hint of Jazz...surprising and impressing with each turn. However, one constant remains throughout the track. That's Jana’s wonderful and gentle vocals...Jana’s music demands your attention and I suggest you give her it." - Art Will Fall, 2018

Jana draws inspiration from personal events in her life and poetry. Catchy folk-rock choruses mixed with unexpected harmonies. Just when you think you know where the song will take you, she suddenly changes course. With her band they recently went to Tilehouse Studios (originally built for Mike Oldfield) to work on their debut EP. Recorded by Luke Oldfield, Jana & The Lanterns arranged and produced 5 songs expecting a release this year. They performed at London’s leading venues like The Bedford, The Troubadour, Spice Of Life, PizzaExpress Live and The Hospital Club (opening for Gypsyfingers).

An artist influenced by the likes of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and The Beatles. Over the years he's been endorsed by Peter Doherty and Jarvis Cocker.

Acoustic music inspired by Neil Young, I Am Kloot. Original songs unfiltered imagination.

Anna Byrne is a musician (mostly piano and voice with the odd bit of ukulele) based in London. Her songs are honest stories of love, friendship and failure. She's been playing all over London for seven years – St Pancras Old Church, St John on Bethnal Green, Old Queen's Head, Tabernacle, The Troubadour, Proud Camden – and released her first full-length album, 'I Will Need A Microphone' last year.
