Line Up

Acoustic indie songs written by Tom, aka Winter Sports.


Macca Taylor is a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Birkenhead, Wirral.

Growing up with a healthy obsession for music, Macca started to write and produce original material from his Birkenhead loft in early 2017. He has experimented with electronic and acoustic-based sounds, taking inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver, James Vincent McMorrow and Novo Amor, before settling on a melodic yet melancholy blend of the two. After a few years of self-confessed inconsistency, he released three singles in 2020, receiving support from BBC Introducing via Dave Monks on Radio Merseyside, as well as Tom Robinson on Radio 6 Music, who crowned Waters Unknown as Macca's 'strongest release to-date'. His latest single How It Goes has received airplay on BBC Radio Merseyside and Amazing Radio in the UK.

Margo Raats is a London-based singer-songwriter characterized by her heartfelt storytelling.

Belwood Music - Barn on The Farm 2019 - “Margo Raats shared songs so moving you felt almost compelled to tears even at the happiest place on Earth.”

Margo is set to release her debut single later this year.

Raised by a music-obsessed father (and a patient mother) who transformed the family’s spare room with a 3,000-strong record collection, it is hardly a surprise that Duncan Spencer’s music is a melting pot of genres and influences. He sings of heartbreak and hope, of hardship and history and wraps it in the best of blues, soul, folk and rock. Although he cites Tom Waits and Nick Cave as key influences, Duncan Spencer’s literate songwriting is perfectly suited for modern times. Since making his official debut in 2019, he has been steadily gaining acclaim for his intricate storytelling and expertly crafted songs. His latest track Serafina is a perfect example of what makes the young writer so special. Inspired by our recent ‘return to normal,’ the song is a reminder of the connection and excitement we’ve all been missing. “The song is inspired by a late night walk in London,” Duncan says. “Passing by the pubs, you could see the manifestation of months of loneliness and lack of intimacy forced on many. You could feel the high levels of infatuation. It was like people had months’ worth of oxytocin coming out in one hit. While we’re not fully back to normal, ‘Serafina’ perfectly expresses the thrill of romance and seduction. It is an instantly memorable track from a songwriter with an uncanny ability to speak to the absurdity of the modern era.
