Adele

“As soon as I got a microphone in my hand, when I was about 14, I realised I wanted to do this,” she says. “Most people don’t like the way their voice sounds when it’s recorded. I was just so excited by the whole thing that I wasn’t bothered what it sounded like.”

Ben Miller Band

The Ben Miller Band’s frenetic, one-of-a-kind jaw-dropping live show has astounded audiences across North America and Europe and is now whipping the wild mountain folk of Blackburg, Kentucky into a frenzy on WGN’s hit new show, “Outsiders,” where they will be featured throughout the season. The band made their television debut on the season premiere last month as the community band in the lawless, fictional town set in the rugged and mysterious hills of Appalachia. As the rowdy residents drank, danced and celebrated, the band provided a rollicking blues rock soundtrack to their drunken revelry. Written and created by Peter Mattei and produced by

Gillbanks

The truth is that you have no true self-realized opinions, you have no absolute idea about who you are or what sort of legacy you’ll leave. Everything you are is an adoption, a slice of someone else’s thoughts, a misinterpretation between the excitement of something new and the fear of missing out.

Gwenno

Gwenno Saunders is a music producer, DJ, radio presenter and singer from Cardiff. She has recently released her debut solo album, 'Y Dydd Olaf' on Heavenly Recordings inspired by an obscure 70s sci-fi novel of the same name written by nuclear scientist, Owain Owain about a dystopian future where everyone gets turned into robot clones and the only way to document it all is by writing it down in Welsh - a language that the computers who now rule the world can't understand.

James Blake

Early in 2016, James Blake threw a party with his 1-800 Dinosaur label collective and early Dubstep evangelists DMZ at The Prince of Wales pub, Brixton. Through his last five years’ musical adventures, James’ exquisite song suites have taken him to lofty places. James Blake climaxed the world tour in support of his last record, Overgrown, to successive standing ovations over two nights at The Sydney Opera House. ‘Just mind-blowing, the kind of thing you dream of,’ he says. ‘Every night ended with just me and piano.’ As he releases his third suite, The Colour in Anything, James is still only 27 years old.

Mabel

Born in the mountains of Malaga, Mabel was raised between Spain, London and spent ten years in the sometimes-claustrophobic confines of Stockholm. She started writing songs from the age of five, as inspired by turn-of-the-century Soul and emerging R&B (Destiny’s Child, Jhené Aiko) as the discipline and emotional honesty of Jazz, which was played constantly around the house.

The Temperance Movement

You know ALL those times when a friend, magazine or so-called-expert has implored you to buy a new band's CD because it’s ‘Free-meets-the-Black Crowes-meets-the-Stones' and you think, quite rightly, “That sounds splendid! What could possibly go wrong?”
