Line Up

"Urban singer-songwriter...very melodic and old school despite the street demeanour... artfully done with lots of nice jazz chords." (Bugbear Promotions). London-based Singer-Songwriter, rapper, multi-instrumentalist. Major inspirations are Bill Withers and Loyle Carner.

Oxford based, indie-rock band ‘FIVER’ are already making waves in their local scene, as they gear up to release new music and perform across the country, it’s clear they are on an upward journey. Described as a melting point of grunge, indie, rock and punk, their music hails back to the sounds of the 2000’s, but taking influence from more recent bands, such as ‘Fontaines D.C’ ‘Wunderhorse’ ‘Kings of Leon’ and ‘Cage The Elephant’.

Having recently sold out an EP release show in Oxford, the band have secured loyal grassroots fans, keen for their passionate live act.

Listen to their latest project “SEWER”. It captures the energy and vigour of old school rock, and harnesses post punk guitar parts, with succinct lyricism. Recent successes include being featured on BBC Introducing in Oxford with their single "I Ain't With You".

Red Lane have made their way into the indie scene recently, only starting in late 2021, and have only been going upwards since then. With their debut EP, 'Electric Chair', the potential is shoved immediately in your face. With crisp guitar, stellar synths and hard-hitting drums, along with unique vocals, results in a new blend of old and new.

PIPPA is an up and coming pop artist, Her captivating live shows and upcoming singles are quickly establishing her as a rising star in the industry. Her recent singles show great potential, as she continues to work towards the launch of her debut EP. Pippa is constantly striving to create a meaningful and cohesive body of work that tells a story from start to finish. While she's still in the process of finishing some of her songs, she is excited to share the apparent sound with new listeners.

Matty Long is an indie folk artist from Putney, and veteran of the London touring scene.

Kyle Chatham is a Scottish Singer-Songwriter whose ethereal dark folk floats in space with no plan to return. Combining elements of bedroom pop and shoegaze with alt-rock and ambient soundscapes, Kyle creates timeless and sincere music. 
 “He has found his footing in creating a mood for the music that feels completely genuine.” 
 Kyle writes tranquil melodies with sombre yet profound lyrics. His music is influenced by the exploration of ideas grounded in classical existentialist philosophy. There is a melancholy to his music that reflects the true beauty and sadness of life. The roots of this can be seen in his musical inspirations including Nick Drake, Ben Howard, Arthur Russell and Chris Cornell. 
 Kyle’s musical history started on a drum kit when he was five years old. School bands and local jam sessions followed, and when Kyle picked up the guitar aged 11, his early musical education consisted of basic singer-songwriter-capo-Ed Sheeran-style and heavy doses of 90s alternative rock like Pearl Jam and Soundgarden. 
 After completing a degree in Sound Production, Kyle started to produce his own music, branching out into other genres like modern pop folk, electoric, hip hop, jazz and shoegaze. His creative style is balanced by his vast knowledge of technical music theory. Kyle made the finals for Ivor's Scholarship - a full scholarship for songwriters - during which he wrote, recorded and released his debut album Neon Spring.

Lee Handrow is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a thirty-year career in the music world. His musical compositions are marked by their intensity, featuring warm and immersive sounds that captivate listeners. Renowned for his distinctive Nashville sound, Lee’s songwriting has evolved from “Americana Music” to a more intimate style, placing a spotlight on everyday life and addressing pertinent social issues.

Whether you are a fan of folk, country, rock or any other genre of music you won't want to miss this hauntingly beautiful singer. A unique and captivating songwriter that defies easy categorisation.

“A heart stopping vocal falling lightly on the ears , a tender yet confident confession, bright but delicate, hopeful and wondrous. There are echoes of Joni Mitchell and Janis Ian, but it’s a different voice for different times” (Simon Farquhar, writer and broadcaster)

Cinematic, moody & expansive, Rebecca’s music tells a story that is beautiful, iconic & transformative.

"My main focus is to keep alive a sense of wonder and make something beautiful I can feel proud of"
