Line Up

James Passey is a naturally gifted songwriter and musician. Picking up a guitar at the age of 15 he began writing songs almost immediately, inspired by artists such as Noel Gallagher, Lee Mavers (The La’s), Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Paul Weller, John Lennon and George Harrison.

James has had no formal musical education, instead with a natural ear for melody, he chose to learn & hone his writing skills playing in bands. His first band The Sweet Leaves were signed to Metropolis Music & supported well known bands including Kula Shaker, Travis, Reef and Cerys Matthews.

James left the music industry for a few years to travel & pursue other interests but started writing in earnest again last year. His initial raw demos were picked up by several industry people and organisations including Chris Gabbitas at Clintons Solicitors (2 x Grammy award winner), Bob Patmore (producer / label owner) and Lee Taylor (Soundnet).

James has recently been recording new material with producer George Shilling and will record/ release new album sometime this year. James is also an “Endorsed Artist” for Audiobridge Recording App (USA).

Automan are a duo from South-West London. Two childhood friends, who started writing music together five years ago, are beginning to show off their versatility and unique style. They both learnt guitar aged 11 and have been growing listening to the same mix of alternative, psychedelic and grunge rock. This in turn inspired them to start writing their own before assuming a telepathic understanding of each other. They are looking to project themselves into the world and ready to show off what they can do.

Hannah Harper is a unique up and coming solo artist making our way in the U.K.'s big city, London. She is a captivating, quirky, creative singer songwriter bringing another twist to pop music. Her electronic art pop sound holds great interest and intrigue. Featured twice on BBC Introducing London as something not to miss, her debut single 'Appetite' is described as being unlike anything else around at the moment.

Combining elements of dance, R&B and hip-hop, east London-born vocalist and songwriter Gorran produces contemporary pop with dark undertones.

His passion and flair for music was evident from a young age, and during his time at the prestigious BRIT School (alumni including Adele, Amy Winehouse, and Rex Orange County), Gorran developed his distinctive sound and dynamic live show.

Since graduating Gorran has been writing and recording with industry professionals to produce original, bold, and gritty pop tracks. His debut single, 'Easy For You', was released in June 2019, followed by his latest track 'Hush' in July, with more new music to follow shortly!

B.W. Johnson is a London-based singer-songwriter. He released his first album when he was 16 via Rough Trade, and since then has self released 2 more albums and 2 EPs. He is currently working on a new album for 2019 release.
