From the multicultural hub of West London’s Shepherds Bush in the UK, Acoustic Pop Rock Artist Mark Villarosa is a musician with a calling to create music.
Fans describe him as a creative lyricist, songwriter and singer with words that come from the heart with passion. His music has been described as Positive, Uplifting, Soulful, Deep, Searching, Simple yet Breathtaking.
In a sea of singer-songwriters Mark stands out not only with his unique mixture of Pop and Rock influences together with Symphonic sounds, but also his distinctively smooth, emotive and powerful vocals that provide warmth & soul to the melodic landscape of his songs.
Together with former band Bamboojuice Mark has also written, recorded and released two EP's: Nightsong in 2002 and Comin Home in 2007.
Two songs penned by Mark (Scared of Heights & Liz) from the Comin Home EP (2007) managed to reach the semi-finals of the 2008 UK songwriting competition against 5,000 nationwide entries.
Mark has played numerous shows around the London gigging circuit and abroad over the years at venues such as the Rock Garden, the Purple Turtle, the Borderline, 100 Club, Hope & Anchor, Sound, the Half Moon, the Dublin Castle, the Monto Water Rats, the Spice of Life, the Troubadour, The Tabernacle, Proud Camden, Le Bar Bat (New York City), Alley Cat in Denmark Street and The Kensington Roof Gardens
Charli White is an upcoming singer/songwriter currently based in Manchester. In the few short years of her career she has supported acclaimed artists from both sides of the Atlantic including multi-award winning USA star Willie Nile, Gibson endorsees Xander and the Peace Pirates and Xtra Mile Recording’s The Lion and the Wolf.
Her performances, characterised by her impressive vocal range and emotionally driven guitar, create a live solo set that provides enough power to keep up with any band she performs alongside. Far from the softness and submissiveness that is all too often associated with female singer/songwriters, Charli has a peerless voice that demands to be heard. It is hard to believe such a huge force hails from such a small town.
“Charli is gorgeous to the bone. She has an ability to brighten anyone’s day and put compulsory smiles on faces. If her pen continues to be as prolific as it has been I think we are looking forward to the birth of some classic tunes. It is coming as sure as night follows day.” – Garry White, Promoter, Event Organiser, Contemporary Music Correspondent MEN Media Group.
