Maya Lane is a singer-songwriter from South West London. She is emotionally mature beyond her years and a natural storyteller.

Maya is managed by Ferocious Talent and is signed to Stellar Songs for publishing.

Birmingham (UK)-based musician. Singer-songwriter, producer and performer. A lot comes to mind when you say 'female pop singer' and I hope to change the first things that springs into your head. My music comes directly from me. No one influences it more than my experiences as a young woman. A lot is expected of us and I'm hoping to give a voice to my generation of women by telling my stories, my friends stories and sometimes even strangers. The songs you'll hear from me are honest. Sometimes too honest...oops. They're stories of growing up in a school full of righteous men, growing up in clubs and chatting rubbish in the smoking area. Stories of experiencing things for the first time whether it's love or letting people down. Music is my way to cope with and navigate the craziness that's all around us. I'm influenced by artists who refuse to conform, retain their artistic identity and establish their own voice; Debbie Harry, Annie Lennox, Lady Gaga, Joan Armatrading, Freddie Mercury, Iggy Pop, Ozzy Osborne, Tyler the Creator, Alexander McQueen and Basquiat.’
Elena Flury brings us a beautifully ambitious blend of melodies, lyricism, and vocal richness. Elena’s vocal tone gives a nod to vintage sounds yet is sonically, firmly in the throat of 2023 and beyond. Influenced by the music of Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, Moonchild, Raphael Saadiq, and together with producer Femi Temowo, Elena discovered her sound. She intends to provide a listening experience that fans will not get tired of. Elena’s music is strong, yet vulnerable, and with her band, she has been hitting the stage, receiving extraordinary feedback, capturing the audience through her smooth vocal performance, her authenticity, and her formidable stage presence.
Elena has had radio support from Jazz FM, Mi-Soul Radio (Track of the Week), BBC Essex, BBC Radio London, Reprezent Radio, and more. She has also seen Spotify editorial support: Fresh Finds UK & IE, New Music Friday UK, and LED lights.
Her debut EP ‘Burning Questions’ was released on the 14th of April and to hear it played live in all its’ glory is definitely not something to be missed!
Hatty Taylor crafts dreamy soundscapes for weary souls. Their bittersweet signature looping vocals slice through strange synth song stories to weave a blanket of sound for your soul. Sharing with you their releases since their days as a front person of Vienna ditto, they invite you to celebrate and mourn with them.
