KONGG - started life in the bedroom of composer Henry Mitton. Taking inspiration from Radiohead and Grizzly Bear and everything in between, he began writing songs at his piano. After releasing a home-recorded debut EP, the band have been playing on the London circuit for 6 months. Piano takes centre stage as they fuse a mixture of rich harmonies, unrelenting grooves and wailing vocal melodies in pursuit of a complex but accessible art-rock aesthetic
Emily Izen Row - Multi-talented’ and ‘singing from the soul’ are a couple of the comments recently applied to this young singer songwriter from Kent. Emily’s musical influences span a wide variety of genres and artists from Lana Del Rey and Fleetwood Mac, to Frank Ocean and Hans Zimmer. Emily’s music has both an ethereal and expansive feel and she is constantly inspired to develop her unique sound using her classical piano and voice training along with self-taught guitar skills. She has been writing songs since she was thirteen and her passion for songwriting grows with each achievement. Emily now studies music at Goldsmiths University, where she is further developing her songwriting and collaborating with other musicians, she is always in the studio, rehearsing with her band, looking for new venues to perform. Following the success of her debut EP Sirens and releasing tracks on iTunes, Emily is working on her second EP and is looking for music management. Sirens EP out now and on iTunes
TOPHER+BANG - Comprised of lead singer & songwriter Topher, Andrei (guitarist, keys), and Cat (drummer), TOPHER+BANG artfully combine soulful vocal performances with gargantuan hooks and modern pop sensibilities.

Armed with an array of self-written & produced tunes perfectly primed for the airwaves, an established reputation on the live scene and a rapidly growing fan base, TOPHER+BANG aren’t relying on subtlety when it comes to capturing the hearts of audiences nationwide.
After debuting their lead single Beauty in the Madness to a packed audience at their July headline show, TOPHER+BANG are readying the release of their upcoming EP entitled You, Me & Our Demons due early 2019.
Natalie Banna - Pop-rock singer-songwriter posing as an adult/ Psychology student who enjoys exploring the human psyche though storytelling in music.
People’s challenges are far more nuanced than the overused clichés pop music conveys and rather than contributing to the empty words of empowerment and simple answers, I seek to shed light on real life stories.
Because real life is messy, mundane, glorious, tragic and that’s what makes it worth singing about.
