Line Up

South Social - 5 piece indie rock band + special guest Peggy (The electric ukelele) from Saaaaaf London

Tanya, our singer and songwriter, began writing our songs on a Ukelele in the middle of the lock down capturing her thoughts and feelings in lyrics and songs: We added a metal drummer (Frazer), a mean bassist (Amit) and two power guitarists (Mark & Dan) to become South Social! These songs traverse real life topics like a breakdown of a relationship, fetishization and microaggressions received from men, the one night stands you want to remember (not the ones you want to forget) and your partner’s ex who keeps popping up and liking their Instagram posts.

Indie-rock outfit The Rackets began playing London’s live-music circuit while still underage. They have since headlined iconic venues such as Camden Assembly, The Fiddler, and The Amersham Arms. The band released their debut single ‘I Don’t Mind’ in 2022, followed by the self-produced ‘Back in a Minute’ in July 2023 and Pictures for Posers in April 2024. Their music combines the raw guitar of The Libertines and the early days of The Strokes while drawing on indie influences like Courteeners and The Maccabees. With a heap of new music on the horizon, The Rackets are here to stay.

Harriet is a Yorkshire lass living in London. She trained as an actor and has a love for story telling through song. She started seriously writing music in Lockdown when she wrote her folk musical ‘Mad for our Daughters’ with Anna Soden, fellow actor and childhood friend, who had written the story. ‘Mad for our Daughters’ has since been performed at The Turbine, Battersea and Seven Dials Playhouse, Soho.

Whilst at drama school Harriet wrote an original score to Watership Down, which was recorded in a studio. Sadly all of her hard work got lost in a flood in her old school building!

Harriet loves all things folk and jazz. Growing up she played double bass in her own country band and was the lead singer in many jazz bands at school. Her influences stem from her dads 70s/80s record collection of Fleetwood Mac, Simply Red and The Commitments and her adolescence of road trips picking up litter at folk festivals starring Johnny Flynn, Laura Marling and Holy Moly and the Crackers.

Harriet is currently working on her first EP about still feeling 17.

Vocalist and songwriter of Hemel Hempstead band OWES performs skeletons of songs to appear across his discography in years to come. A four track EP from OWES came in mid 2023 and a pair of solo demos on SoundCloud are there to be listened to, with 2024 due to bring more. Expect ambience, wit and atmosphere you can get lost in.

Hailing from Suffolk, Singer- Songwriter Amy Allard captivates listeners with her heart on her sleeve, poetic lyrics and ethereal vocals, creating catchy and unforgettable pop songs you are sure to love. She overcame crippling shyness and lack of confidence to pursue a music career in 2022. Her greatest strengths are her vivid storytelling abilities and emotive vocal performances. In 2023, she performed to crowds of thousands at Ipswich Music Day (the largest free one day music festival in the UK) and Ipswich Fireworks Display as well as various events in London and Essex. Her music has garnered attention with airtime on BBC Suffolk and Norfolk. After releasing her first five singles, Amy is poised to continue her ascent in 2024.

Adriana's diverse musical taste spans across various genres, from soulful ballads to energetic pop punk anthems. Drawing inspiration from legendary artists such as Bjork, Spice Girls, and Lana Del Rey, she has developed a unique sound that captivates listeners and leaves them wanting more.

Adriana styled Girl Power and a debut album coming latter in 2024.
