Since starting to professionally pursue music five years ago, Rebecca’s journey to where she is now has been somewhat eventful. The singer-songwriter played shows around London for two years before suffering a vocal injury which prevented her from performing for the following two years. The time away was a time of great healing and growth for Rebecca; she wrote constantly and learned more about who she was as an artist. Since recovering, Rebecca has formed a band with three session musicians; Andy, Matt, and George. These highly creative and talented young musicians have played for the likes of Rag & Bone Man, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora and The Beach to name but a few.

Rebecca has played headline shows at Camden Assembly, The Bedford and The Half Moon in Putney, where she was invited back in February to support Katrina & The Waves as part of Independent Venue Week. It was a sold out show.

This exciting time in Rebecca’s career represents a relaunch into the music industry; Rebecca has just recorded an EP, ‘Here in Space, which was released on to digital platforms early this year. Rebecca’s songs are truthful, personal, and lyrical and she returns after her time away with new material, a fantastic band around her, and exciting new possibilities opening up.

Welsh pop meets pseudo Americana. With roots firmly dug in the foothills of North London, Swansea born songwriter Josh Ace tells tales of derailed dreams, dissolute companions and life in the times of social media and virtual collective consciousness. Apocalyptic overtones with a sense of humorous cynicism, sugar coated in power pop harmonies leave you feeling not all is lost. Angular guitar hooks hark back to post-punk new wave with a hint of psychedelia thrown in the mix for good measure!

''Some kind of beautiful passion at work, really ace stuff!" - Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales

''This is a band well worth listening out for in the future'' - Alternative Tracks

A fresh and exciting new singer/songwriter, Amelia Lappert combines elements of country and folk in her colourful urban pop anthems that resonate, grip and empower. With a strong, emotive voice that reaches exquisite heights with clarity and ease, Amelia forges ahead on the path opened up by artists like KT Tunstall, Lily Allen and Natasha Bedingfield.

Born and raised in Hertfordshire, Amelia spent a lot of time with her imagination as a young child, writing stories and songs tucked away in her bedroom. It was only while studying popular music at Liverpool University that gradually convinced an introverted, shy writer to get out of her shell and to become the performing artist she’d always dreamed of being.

Miranda Joy is a 23 year old singer songwriter currently based in London. She performs her meaningfully written songs with a powerful and soulful voice with moving piano accompaniment. She has performed at many venues, festivals and events, including the Vortex Jazz Club, The Village Underground, Rye International Jazz and Blues festival, the Great Escape Festival and Nasty Women UK. Last year one of her original songs “The Fall” was featured on BBC1’s coverage of the NFL Super Bowl highlights. Currently, she is continuing to perform at venues across the UK and working on releasing 2 singles.
