Line Up

DDLL is a London-based singer/songwriter/pianist. His music is intense, smooth, and electrifying all at once - a fusion of grooviness and intimate Neo Soul vibes. Drawing from jazz, hip hop, soul, pop and fusion, he will transport you across genres on an immersive and colorful journey. Just sit back, relax, and let him take control.

Kinvara was classically trained as a young chorister at the world-renowned Brompton Oratory, regularly performing at The Royal Opera House in various productions of the Nutcracker and Mid-Summer Night’s Dream. Kinvara then went on to attend The London School of Dramatic Art, where she studied performing arts. Following her graduation, Kinvara toured the UK in various productions before returning to London to pursue a career in music.

Born into a family of artists and musicians, Kinvara grew up in a household that cherished all kinds of music, allowing Kinvara to form her own eclectic taste, which in turn influenced her writing and performance. Kinvara is a prolific writer, who drew her inspiration from a broad pool of artists such as Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Civil Wars, Joni Mitchell, Allisson Krauss & Robert Plant, James Bay, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse and many more.

Kinvara has just completed her studio album ‘Fools and Lovers’ a journey which took her to recording some of her songs at Angel Studios and Abbey Road, working alongside seasoned musicians and producers.

Embodying the assertive DIY attitude of punk rockers, but placed in a commercial environment, Ben Kidson moves with the times. His music combines modern pop writing and production elements (think harry styles, taylor swift), with the alternative rock energy and arrangement of his heroes, Nirvana.

in 2022/23, Ben’s energetic live show earnt him a spot as a finalist at the Isle of Wight Festival’s ‘New Blood’ Competition, and at the American Express Gold Unsigned competition. If you’ve used Tiktok recently, you’ll see and hear him on an advert for Amex, which has had over 7 million views to date, and if you use Amazon Prime, you’ve likely seen him in ‘Unsigned’, a documentary about the competition itself.

Ben already has a fan in legendary singer Robert Plant, who signed him to the Wolves Records, and helped him get Radio 1 support on his first single ‘Joking’. He performed on the BBC introducing stage at Boardmasters festival in August, with his performance being chosen as one of the few to be broadcast across BBC Southwest as a highlight of the weekend.

mex.fS is the artist name of percussive lap-tap guitarist Joseph Gravil. Playing the acoustic guitar on this lap he creates melodies on the neck, like a piano, but uses the body of the instrument percussively. He has performed his original instrumental pieces all over the world, through theatre composition, busking, and various festivals.
