Shruti Haasan is one of India’s most celebrated actresses and musicians. The pop rock songstress emerged on the UK scene in late 2018 with sell-out gigs around London. Known for her powerful voice and gift for emotionally charged song-writing, Shruti has been working on a hotly anticipated debut EP due for release early next year.

Thom Worth is an artist influenced by the likes Bob Dylan, Neil Young, The Smiths, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, The Chili Peppers, Manic Street Preachers, Radiohead, Leonard Cohen, and Elbow. Thom has the talent to captivate audiences in a moment, and then have them dancing the next.

Lisa brings a refreshing authenticity to her songs and performances, combining beautifully crafted songs, infectious guitar picking and a defiant voice. Her music has been described as dark folk with elements of jazz, with an eclectic mix of influences including Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell and Erykah Badu. Lisa has played some of London's most prestigious venues, including Ronnie Scott's, The Jazz Cafe and the Royal Albert Hall. Following 2014's debut EP "From The Bedroom Den", Lisa released her debut album "Summoned By A Foolish Magpie" in 2016 and has been tipped as one to watch by both Time Out and Live Nation. Lisa spent much of 2018 creating in the studio, working on a new album to be released soon.
