Line Up

“I sense she may be a name to watch out for” - Ray Jones, Time Out/Talentbanq

“A truly gifted guitarist” - Jay Stapley, professional session guitar player (Roger Waters, Mike Oldfield)

Described as “Joni-meets-Joan-Jett”, London-based, turbocharged rocker Georgia Maria first appeared on the scene at the onset of 2019, armed with her distinctive brand of ultra-melodic, prog-tinged folk-rock. The Camden native - already something of a veteran with years of experience playing in bands and doing guitar sessions and function gigs - channels her diverse musical experiences and “hands-on” education, into a sound that combines classic folk songwriting savvy with rock’n’roll intensity and an undeniably infectious dose of front-and-centre-stage, foot-on-the-monitor attitude.

As a teen Georgia gained a following on YouTube with home videos of her lead guitar playing, so impressing one couple in Canada that they gifted her with a home-made guitar designed especially for her, which she plays to this day. A move to London’s long-standing music mecca of Camden Town at the close of 2018 prompted a move towards a true calling: finally writing and performing her own material. An exuberant, yet fiercely committed live performer with a voice often compared to PJ Harvey, Grace Slick and Mac-era Stevie Nicks, Georgia has some 600 gigs already under her belt (172 in 2019 alone), and it shows.

Georgia has performed at Latitude Festival, Standon Calling Festival and at renowned London venues including the Fiddler’s Elbow, the Dublin Castle and the Bedford, has been featured on BBC Introducing radio, and has opened for progressive rock band The Room at Jagz Ascot as well as cult folk singer-songwriter Beans On Toast at Pryzm Kingston. Whilst gigging and writing extensively, she unveiled her debut release, Musketeers, recorded with award-winning producer Dax Liniere, at the close of 2019 - closely followed by a string of new singles and homemade videos throughout 2020.

In 2021, Georgia emerged from the hellfire of the COVID-19 pandemic as the frontwoman and lead guitarist of a new three-piece rock band - unveiling her EP, Only One Another, with a sold-out launch night at the Hope and Anchor. Business as usual was swiftly resumed as 2022 began: performing frequently around the capital, writing and recording, releasing single after single to a growing family of fans. Whilst preparing to take to the mainstage of Ealing Blues Festival ’22 this summer, Georgia and the band’s latest release, Lord of Misrule, is slated for release on July 15th.

“End-of-the-world songwriting and bellowing pipes” - SLAP Magazine

“Progressive, melodic, accomplished, exceptional” - Indie Top 39

“Magnificent originality. A real must-hear" - Roadie Music

“A full-throttle rock star in the making” - Find No Enemy

Stephen Murphy is a British singer/songwriter based in South London. He grew up heavily inspired by artists such as Jeff Buckley, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, R.E.M and Radiohead, which he channels in his music. He started performing regularly in 2018 in London after a lot of interest in his sets at open mic events, at which he played originals and covers on both piano and guitar.

He has performed at venues such as Hard Rock Cafe, The Bedford in Balham and in Summer 2021, had a weekly Friday slot at Pear Tree Cafe in Battersea Park.

He is currently recording his first album which is due early 2022.

Mary Moore is a folk-pop/indie-pop artist living in Nashville, TN. With powerhouse vocals and storytelling lyrics, she has been captivating stages and connecting to people from all walks of life. Mary’s vocals are comparable to the power of Brandi Carlile and Florence + The Machine, but also with the sweet, quirkiness of Regina Spektor.

Mary grew up in Richmond, VA where she filled her life with music and performance. Mary played piano, french horn, and mellophone, and participated in dance, show choir, choir, musicals, marching band, and wind ensemble. Mary also was the lead singer for a classic rock cover band that toured in Virginia from age 13-18. Mary went to the University of Virginia for college where she became the Music Director of the award winning acapella group the Virginia Belles.

After graduating college, Mary relocated to Nashville, TN to hone her craft as an artist. Mary has found growing success as a force on stage, her music has been heard on Lightning 100 and Mary has played notable venues in Nashville like the Listening Room Cafe, the High Watt, and The Basement.

Mary’s debut EP “Rooted Heart” was released in the summer 2019, the songs gushing with imagery of the natural world and showcasing Mary’s writing and vocal chops. The title track “Redwoods” was promoted on NPR “All Things Considered” blog, helping the song and Mary reach a new audience. Mary followed up the EP release with a tour all over the US, playing house concerts and Sofar Sounds shows from the cobble stone streets of Boston to the Redwood forest in San Francisco. Mary has racked up 100k streams on her music and she has been gaining fans with her inviting stage presence and entrancing performances.

Mary is releasing an EP in the summer of 2022, and singles will be coming soon!

Mary hopes her songs don’t just give listeners comfort, but gives them the freedom to flourish in the messy and the darkness. Happy Listening!

Adam Lewis aka "Calon" is a Swansea-born singer songwriter based in South-East London.

Calon's hairpin guitar melodies & candid lyrics transport audiences to personal snapshots; from ex-lovers and accidental philosophies, to existential late-night London bus journeys, Calon invites you to the birthplace of each song.

With a sound echoing the likes of Jeff Buckley, Elliot Smith & Radiohead, Calon's Jazz chords and Bossa Nova rhythms give a folky and familiar feel.

In Welsh, “Calon” can loosely mean several things such as Spirit, Centre and Emotion, but literally translates as “Heart”, something which is reflected in the emotive and honest nature of his original songwriting.
