You can follow and support Christian on Instagram, Facebook and Tik Tok to keep informed about new music and gig dates.
Emerging London 5-piece Artfair erupt with a joyous sound which radiates youthful energy. Successfully navigating the cornerstones of pop and indie rock, driving guitars and syncopated live piano motifs are intertwined with expressive vocals, which soar over the band’s locomotive rhythm section.
Artfair’s eclectic sonic palette derives from their wide variety of influences. Capturing the bark of the Libertines, grooves from old school electronic music, and the poetry of Lorde, they are quickly establishing themselves as a fearless creative force with a proclivity for telling evocative stories.
Since forming on a fresher’s week dance floor in Camden, the band have had a lightning start to their career, releasing two singles which achieved transatlantic radio airplay and strong playlist support, and selling out their debut headline show at The Water Rats.
In these releases, the band display their impressive musicality and stylish songwriting, characterised by huge choruses filled with considerable lyrical depth. Listen out for idiomatic one liners you could stick on a billboard!
The end of 2021 is going to be big for Artfair, with the release of their stadium ready new single ‘Bittersweet’, the return of their dynamic live show headlining touring venue Camden Assembly, and the stunning “Bittersweet” music video.
Undeniably these boys are going places. Are you going to come with them?
Artfair’s anthemic third single “Bittersweet” will be released on all platforms on 22nd October.

Bias is the solo project of Tokyo-based singer-songwriter, Keiichiro
Nemoto who does almost all artistic activities by himself, including vocals, lyrics, composition, arrangement, mixing, playing instruments, artwork, music video etc. His music has a nostalgic mood with innovative sound and a melody that may touch your heart. He sings in Japanese and English and some lyrics are about a sense of loss, a feeling of sadness inside with bittersweet memories. His 1st album ‘Last Milk’, released in 2020, reached #45 on the iTunes alternative charts in Japan and several of his songs have reached #1 on Deezer Top Japan. He plans to release his 2nd album later this year.
Ranging from the mellow sparsity of Nick’s piano/vocal serenades to full band performances which incorporate elements of blues and progressive rock, the album deals with themes of birth, loss and the varying degrees of confusion within contemporary relationships and the struggles of life.
‘…his confidence and artistry is a joy to behold in last one get the lights’
(Kate Murphy, NARC Magazine: Sept 2021)
Committed to the old school method, Nick arranged a two day session which the fundamentals of each track were recorded live, on the studio floor. Everything was recorded ‘off grid’ to allow the flow of each musician to blend naturally. “we went for the organic, live approach to recording to capture something honest and genuine”. NG
The album is out now on all major platforms, including Band Camp!
The album’s release was marked with the NG Band’s return to the Cluny 2 in Newcastle, (12.9.2021) to favourable reviews and interest. ‘last one get the lights’ was recorded at Traxx Studios by The Nick Gladdish Band and produced by John Timney. ‘American inspired, warm and gritty rock riffs’ (Rosie Murphy, NE Volume Magazine: Aug 2021)
