An evening of great British song writing. Alt rock / power pop / folky warmth.
Bad Wolf, are an engaging explosion of noisy joy with planet sized anthems. Their recent debut ‘False Conscience’, an instant rock classic which wowed this year’s festivals. NME, BBC Introducing, Xfm and various independents have spotted their potential, with an array of positive feedback for their punky sci fi soundtracks which can break out into soaring pop melodies (and the occasional salsa or military beat). “Bold, driving and almost Muse-esque” (Kerrang!)@UKBadWolf https://facebook.com/ukbadwolf
Son Of A Lumberjack hail from the Midlands and come armed with awesome alternative soundscapes that are pricking up all the right ears. @SOALumberjackhttps://facebook.com/SonofaLumberjack
Nina Baker has just won Best Song at the Best Of British Music Awards and has early comparisons to Kate Bush and Tori Amos for her album ‘Quite Frankly’.@NinaBakerMusic https://facebook.com/NinaBakerMusic
Jean Genie’s Massive Hugs – magic pop loveliness from a former Goldsmiths student who scouts and promotes future faves, produces/presents cool new musicradio (and was assistant to Xfm’s John Kennedy). A familiar face at the buzz gigs. A rising star in her own right. https://facebook.com/jeangeniesmassivehugs
James Fisher played mighty blues licks and riffs as lead guitarist with underground rock legends, Officer Kicks. A roller coaster life over the last few years has exposed his sensitive side. He charms and entertains with gentle songs that fuse doom and hope. @fissicella https://facebook.com/fissicella
