Line Up

Singer, songwriter and South West Londoner TORANN is an R&B/POP artist from London UK. In his earlier career he gained experience working in the West End production ‘Thriller Live’ playing young Michael Jackson at the age of eleven. He toured around Scandinavia, Germany and the UK. He went to The BRIT School training in Musical Theatre so is a triple threat in Acting, Singing and Dance. He is now finishing his Degree in Popular Music Performance at BIMM London learning his craft as an artist.

TORANN has also appeared on a Disney commercial and has acted in the British series ‘Outnumbered’.

TORANN recently had a Show at the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire for his BIMM Graduation Showcase where he performed an Original track called ‘ What’s The Scene’. He also performed for the Baton of Hope Uk charity outside Royal Albert Hall. He recently formed a band at BIMM and performed at The Half Moon in Putney incorporating covers and originals.

TORANN’s debut EP Heart Isn’t Honest / Pills & Potions was released on the 26th January 2024. Heart Isn’t Honest tells a story about a relationship being toxic. The song has lyrical metaphors such as “You look like an angel, but your heart isn’t honest, lust and affection but your soul is demonic.” It’s like meeting someone who is beautiful on the outside but ugly on the inside.

PILLS & POTIONS tells a story about reminiscing on a recent heartbreak and having a coping mechanism using drugs to numb the pain.

TORANN’s biggest fans are his mum and Olympic Silver Medalist older brother, JOE JOYCE.

TORANN’s latest single ‘Like I Do’ was released on Valentine's Day. Like I Do is an afrobeats track about love. It was released in collaboration with Chop Daily and had over 55k streams on Spotify. TORANN is now set to continue to carve what looks to be an exciting career ahead.

The Elidas are Scottish identical twins, Venice and Belle. Their sibling harmonies, heartbreaking lyrics and charming covers are fast making them "ones to watch" in the indie folk scene - despite them still being at school.

Signed to indie label River Jones Music in Austin, the girls played to sold out audiences in Texas earlier this year and are home for the summer to play gigs from London to Inverness.

Ella J Harebell is a French singer song-writer living in the UK. She plays the autoharp and her songs often tend towards melancholic folk, touching on topics like mental health and grief. She's recently been exploring more upbeat rhythms, so you can expect a couple of happier love songs too!

Will Pope’s music expands the boundaries of a folk and pop crossover by mixing a subtle jazz sensibility with the passionate, visceral sensibility of classic roots music. His technicality is matched with soaring vocals and intricate harmonies stemming from a love of soul. His debut album offers an enchanting glimpse into the wide ethereal spaces and sweeping compositions that create his signature sound.

His debut release “Burying Giants” is the culmination of years of hard work, shaped by the Beijing music scene (Axis Neptune / Su Zixu + The Paramecia / Clustercuss) and artists and musicians Pope has collaborated with along the way.

The songs tell stories of grief, loss and hope in a changing landscape—shaped partly by his experience of living in China's capital, but also through the isolation that comes with a solo artist working on a debut release.
