The Half Moon Music Team
An emerging Folk Rock artist from South West England.
Ben Hutcheson bridges the storytelling gap between Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Tim McGraw making him an act to look for in the near future.
Starting out from humble beginnings in Bristol, Ben has become a growingly aware and prominent artist to look out for.
His music career started as a young teenager and since then has gone on to play all around the South West of England. He currently resides in Bath where he is currently studying Commercial Music at Bath Spa University. He is currently preparing his 2nd EP and preparing a tour for the summer of 2018. Ben lists many influences that span through many genres and eras but he notes a few extremely influenctial artists ranging from AC/DC, Kenny Chesney, Brother and Bones, Passenger, Guns N' Roses, Ed Sheeran, The Script and more. “Ben Hutcheson, a young singer/songwriter with a wisdom beyond his years. His lyrics tackle universal themes such as love and loss, yet also weave captivating stories, with a contemporary feel. With a warm, rich voice he expresses emotion and authenticity and makes a genuine connection with his audience.” - Julianne Regan (All About Eve)
"Ben Hutcheson’s dark husky growl sings of a world of intimacy and observation. Love, lust and tenderness, haunted dancehalls and broken promises - Ben’s world is weary though alive due to delicacy and romance. From Portishead to Nashville this is music for lovers, vagrants and thieves." - Davey Ray Moore (CousteauX)
Singer, song writer and multi instrumentalist Martyn Peters is now firmly a resident of London, after moving from his native North Wales. After gigging and touring his debut album Veins, released in 2017, he is now writing new music ready for release before the end of the year.

House of Mirrors is the development of several sounds, varying from psychedelic rock to reggae, bossa and punk, unified by Milo Finn’s punk inspired vocals. Having started the project that is House of Mirrors, Milo Finn uses his love for poetry to create vivid lyrics. The variety of genre inspires lyrical, structural and thematic freedom. He learnt classical guitar his whole life, thus the push and feel in music was always an important element when writing his own songs.
Discovering the haze and dream state paranoia heard through the sounds of Pink Floyd and The rolling stones. Young Milo Finn was inspired by the history and psychedelic scene of the Bands who played at eel pie island, a stone’s throw from where he grew up. His take on the seasonal sounds and rhythms of the world emerge in his music to create an obvious artistic tone. A reflective daydreamer with an idealistic view of the future.
Castlecombe Drive is a newly formed, london based folk-rock band consisting of long time collaborators James Hall, Charlie Hepburn, Nick Marett, Joey Benstead and Peter Oates. Priding themselves on their ability to combine an honest, authentic songwriting style with anthemic musical arrangements, Castlecombe Drive have quickly come to prove their worth both in an intimate setting and a stage environment.
Having developed a strong catalogue of new music over the last year, the band is eager to showcase exactly what it is they're made of and to begin making their mark as a group to be watched.
