Hi my name is Fawne I am a London based singer/song writer

My music is best described as alternative pop

I released my first single back in 2021 called ‘colours’ this was accompanied by a music video and write ups from fame magazine and various music blogs

I then went on to release my debut EP ‘sorry to the ones’ in spring of 2022 which featured 5 tracks and a music video for one of the singles ‘sorry to the ones’

I have been playing gigs around all different parts of London for the past few years and have a guitar player called Elliot who accompanies me on stage. New music is due to come out in spring of 2024

Hailing from the Midwest, Kirstie Kraus moved to Nashville in 2017 to further pursue her flourishing career as a solo recording artist and songwriter following her time in the country-rock band Thirsty Jones (her fans are now nicknamed Thirsties as an homage to that period and a fun rhyming play on words to her name). Kirstie's music style is an original mix of Blues, Pop, Rock and Country with funky bass lines bubbling under the surface.

Since permanently relocating to Music City, Kirstie has toured across the US and opened for some of country’s biggest stars including Thomas Rhett, Kip Moore, LANCO, Eric Paslay, Brandy Clark, Walker Hayes, The Cadillac Three, Pam Tills, Brothers Osborne, and Randy Houser to name a few. In 2023 her breakout year in the UK arrived with her playing the coveted C2C Festival at the O2 Arena in London. Her fanbase in Britain has grown considerably and her name further rose up the ranks thanks to her collaboration with rising UK artist Thomas Kavanagh on the single ‘Who Am I Gonna Love’ which has had support from Apple Music, Absolute Radio, BBC Introducing, CountryLine Radio and many more outlets.

2023’s growing success built on a standout 2022, which saw Kirstie Kraus releasing her debut album ‘Yes You Can’ which she supported with a six-month headline tour across America - the LP comprised 11 tracks including the hit singles ‘Bird’, ‘Thirsty’, and ‘Silver’. The LP was a roaring success and earned Kraus multiple accolades such as 7x nominations at the Best of Women of Country, and Josie Music Awards (the largest independent music award show).

Having been writing and playing music since age 11, Kirstie Kraus understands the nuances of her vocals and through that, she is able to create songs that showcase her abilities and complement the tone she has. You only have to take a look at her back catalog and industry support to see that country music is where she belongs and that she is an artist who is rightly taking Nashville by storm.

“My music is uplifting and it has its own unique sound that compiles a mixture of bluesy pop rock undertones with funky bass lines” - Kirstie Kraus

Currently, Kirstie Kraus is recording new music with renowned producer BMG Dolby Atmos Jeff Huskins at Stage Studio in Nashville and is continuing her role as host on Enter the Atmosphere (Dolby Atmos Podcast out of BMG Studio A), CountryLine, The Backstage Pass and Live In The Living Room.

George David is a 30-year-old independent singer songwriter and producer from Walthamstow, London.

His debut EP, Three Months, is a concept EP examining a relationship he knows may come to an end when the girl in question moved abroad for three months. It tells the story from a first date all the way through to a goodbye at Heathrow - from late night drinking together to feelings of anxiety, it takes the listener through a rollercoaster of emotions before finishing with a sense of understanding and compassion for the narrator’s future.

His soon to be released follow up EP, The End of The Party, explores the intricacies of relationships and the danger that resides in infatuation. From the moment discovering an individual to their eventual demise, it’s a dark look at violence and obsession. The End of The Party is an engaging record that puts you right in the mind of an obsessor and their subject.

His music takes inspiration from a wide variety of sources including Andy Shauf, Bon Iver, City and Colour, Nick Drake, John Martyn, Jeff Buckley, Bob Dylan, and Paul Simon.
