Jimmy Knows is a 4-member band based in Athens. They were formed in 2018, establishing their indie pop sound with their first lo-fi mixtape "Soft Spots". Their songwriting is a mixture of soft nostalgic beats and catchy melodies. In April 2020 the band recorded a 7-inch vinyl single called "Eye of the Storm", released by Old Bad Habits Record label.

During the pandemic, Jimmy Knows released their debut EP "I've Been Writing Lovesongs", which was well received by the independent media. Since then, the band has released 2 more singles, "Sweat" and "Flowered", with which they flourished in the indie music scene of Athens.

Their single "lovesongs" quickly became a hit and its significant success led to the release of 2 remixes that were added to the playlists of top Greek radio stations, such as En Lefko 87,7, Nostos 100,6 fm and Pepper 96,6. Following the success of "lovesongs" and after several live performances in 2022 and 2023, Jimmy Knows are currently recording new material, which will be included in their debut album.

Singer songwriter Nikki Blanco was born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles. She moved to New York for college, where she began to work in production. It was there that she discovered her knack for songwriting and began to sing in public. Classically trained on the piano, she decided to go back to her roots and her favorite music—Pop. Here she is making her debut release with “Don’t Let Me Go” in English as well as a Spanish version, “No Me Dejes”.

olly Mckew (guitar/vox) performs moody, often sad, alt-folk drenched in harmony. Her unique celtic influenced alt-folk/pop is an amalgamation of the European folk and choral music of her childhood, the 90s and 2000s rock/pop of her teenagehood, and her heartbroken contemporaries. Mckew began gigging around Melbourne in 2015, first under the name Nancy Cole, then as part of a duo, Blue Lining. The 2020 lockdowns bore creative fruit and she began performing under her own name at the start of 2021, playing at beloved Melbourne venues like Old Bar, the Merri Creek Tavern, the Pinnacle and the Retreat. Mckew made her interstate debut in 2023, playing at the internationally esteemed Woodford Folk Festival. She released her debut solo EP, 'I couldn't grasp it' in August 2022, and two singles from the forthcoming album ‘I dream of the lightness of the presence of you’ and ‘On waking up, it was still true’ in 2023. She released a third single and video 'The shape of grief' in March 2024. Her album ‘It should have been done with ease” was released through Dinkum Records (Narrm/Melbourne) on April 26th. It was recorded at Road Noise Studios by Rowena Wise and features violin by Rowena Wise, Cello by Vincent Ward and piano by Didirri Peters. Mckew’s 11 tracks are an intimate collection of songs that explore heartbreak, fantasy, rumination and absence.

Will Foley is the 'BBC introducing artist to watch'. Will made his name in his home town of Colchester before moving to London to pursue music professionally. He plays all over London all the time and is growing a fan base from all of his live shows.

Will released his debut studio album in October 2023 titled 'Addicted to Chaos' featuring 10 songs. His songs feature very insightful lyrics that are matched to beautiful melodies and powerful guitar hooks to create songs that will stay with your soul!
