Kingsley Beat is a new indie songsmith on the scene, imbued with the spirit of Madchester, with a good measure of West London attitude thrown in. Fresh from supporting ex-Inspiral Carpets legend Tom Hingley at the 100 Club, Kingsley Beat is causing quite a stir with his refreshingly unique melodic craft. In cahoots with the Ramshackle Music Collective, Kingsley Beat sings a lyrically skilful repertoire of original modern indie classics. Look out for Bed and Breakfast, Commando Sunday 4, Ju Ju Belle and Feed the Swan.
