Lauren April

 

The best songs are those that make you feel. There is nothing better than listening to a song that fills you with emotion. Being able to connect with another being through the rhythm of a song or the lyrics of a song is something very special.
Lauren always had a passion for music and was introduced to country music at a young age. She loved the storytelling aspect behind the songs, this was one of the main things that influenced her to start songwriting. She often describes writing as a form of escape, and it allowed her to speak openly about her struggles with bullying and acceptance as a teenager.
As she got older, she began experiencing different genres of music, but it was always country music that made her feel most at home; realising this is exactly where her music fit.
The release of her 4 track EP 'This is my Life' in 2014, brought airplay from local radio stations such as BBC Introducing and community stations, but it was her debut single 'Picture on the Wall' which propelled her into the UK country scene. It received a very positive response from Radio stations around the UK, including: Mark Forrest's BBC Radio show and many country stations including UK country radio, Chris Country Radio and CMR Nashville.
Lauren will be back with brand new music soon, so stay tuned and come along for the journey!

Despite my complete lack of elegance or co-ordination, I love to dance."

The Missing Persians

Next Here: TBC

The Missing Persians

 

The band was formed early 2013, when Chris Cox, John Keston-Hole and Nick Clack, who had previously played together, decided to collaborate again in a new outfit, this time to play some Americana & Tex-Mex music

Initially, Chris was to be the upright bass player, but in early rehearsals he occasionally added an acoustic rhythm guitar to add to John’s electric guitar which instantly gave a more rounded and satisfying sound. He suggested a few of his own songs from his back catalog to further explore this new combination, these worked so well that they have now defined the direction of the band and he has started writing new songs especially for The Missing Persians

Of course, Chris now not being available to play bass meant the band required a replacement, he personally set about auditioning a few players and came up with Chas Maguire, who slotted into the band straight away. It would be hard to now imagine the band without Chas

By this time, the band had also found a natural music direction and could no longer be adequately termed Americana or Tex-Mex. The new songs touch on many different musical genres, Country Blues, Rock, Jazz, Soul, Funk & Reggae along the way, but each is developing a unique Missing Persians style

Sebastien Tree

Sebastien Tree

 

His last Single ‘Worry’ hit the iTunes UK Top 10 in September 2016 and a National UK tour has just been confirmed. You can definitely say these are very exciting times for Sebastian Tree. He gained huge exposure this summer with his debut single , "Fallen Star,"being aired at the New York Film festival.

Sebastian has a real gift when it comes to songwriting which has been showcased with his fantastic band around the UK in 2016, selling out the O2 earlier this year. Make sure you see this artist live as his passion and energy mixed with his brilliantly crafted pop songs is something not to be missed.

Sebastian remembers the moment he decided on a career in music. As a young year old boy watching his first concert, he looked on in awe as Freddie Mercury performed in front of a massive crowd at Wembley Stadium, “I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life,” Sebastian remembers with a smile, “Before I began playing instruments I was always interested in the song writers themselves… a strange way to start paving your way to a career in music. However, even at the age of 8, I thought it was the most important thing!”. 80s pop icons such as Queen, U2 and Fleetwood Mac are obvious influences in Sebastian’s brilliantly crafted and extremely catchy lyrics and music.

He grew up in a household heavily influenced by music as his father performed regularly with local Birmingham artists such as Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne, Toni Iommi and Robert Plant to name a few. In more recent times, Sebastian is inspired by The Kings of Leon, James Bay and Florence and The Machine. These eclectic tastes, a talent for the guitar and piano that accompany very distinctive vocals, make Sebastian an incredible musician to look out for! His Debut EP, comes out in February 2017 and will be available to download on all major distributors.

Andy Robbins

 

Born in 1985 Andy is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Oxfordshire. His love of music started at an early age exposed to his dads constant barrage of music in the evenings such as The Beatles, Kinks, Eagles, Pink Floyd and The Smiths to name a few.

A keen writer from aged 11, Andy took an interest in poetry and had poems published in competitions at school. At age 14, deadly jealous of the guitar his brother was given for his birthday, he claimed it as his own and hasn’t looked back since. With a determination that has never left him, he taught himself to play the guitar by endlessly reading books and pestering older friends to correct his mistakes and help him to polish his craft as well as Rigorously reciting Oasis’ Wonderwall and the classic Irish folk song Black Velvet Band until his fingers were raw.

Stumbling across an open mic night by accident one evening Andy returned the following week armed with his guitar and a backlog of covers. It was around this time that Andy wrote his first song: Morning Sun (A song about his first born son) Since then Andy has been a regular on the Oxford Music scene and has performed at over 500 open mics, gigs and festivals including Witstock and Hanneyfest. As well as performing as a solo artist Andy has played lead guitar in Strange Vintage, an Oxford born retro band, sung for Refugees of Culture and even formed his own acoustic band: Vanilla Street, where he played Rhythm guitar and sang. Taking his inspiration from artists such as Oasis, Ruarri Joseph, Jimmi Hendrix, The Beatles and Bob Dylan, Andy describes his sound as ‘Folk Blues with an indie rock undertone tied up with a emotive edge.’ His debut album Lost in a Moment is available now to download at www.soundcloud.com/andy-robbins , if you can make it to one of his gigs he will also give you a cd.

Tom Forbes opens up proceedings with a set that consists of each song being constructed before the audience’s eyes and ears . He builds up a backing beat to each one of his tracks by playing a variety of instruments one at a time and looping them. When he’s done with the looping, he utilizes his voice to its maximum; hitting high notes and keeping things energetic and fun. He is the perfect antidote to snore-inducing overtly-emotional singer songwriters.

AK Poets

 

Waiting for great pop music is like waiting for the bus; you wait forever, two come along at once and you suddenly realise you were looking at the wrong stop all along. So it goes with busses it too goes with pop leaning offerings, with The Dowling Poole invading all things radio to preach the gospel it falls to the delicious pop ‘n’ roll act The AK Poets to tread the boards a little closer to home, gigging extensively in the South of England to preach their very own ministry of groove.

Based out of Swindon and born from a love of all things groovy, David Marx and The AK Poets drink heavily from the fountains of Waits and Costello whilst sitting by the same pools as The Clash and The Yardbirds to pump out a record jammed packed full with swinging rhythms, infectious choruses and devilishly witty lyrics.
