Stylusboy
Since the release of his critically acclaimed debut album 'Hospitality for Hope' in 2015, Stylusboy has continued to drive his songwriting and creativity with the release of several EPs as well as a live album recorded in a manor house deep in the Derbyshire countryside. Steve's Fine Art background inspires the fact that all of his releases have unique handmade sleeves lovingly made by Steve himself, all part of the Stylusboy 'handmade indie folk' style.
Stylusboy's sound of 'arresting melodies and poignant lyrics' (Right Chord Music) has received praise and accolades from the likes of Acoustic Magazine, R2 Magazine, For Folks Sake, God is in the TV as well as BBC Introducing, 6Music, Xfm and Amazing Radio. Champion of independent music, Tom Robinson from BBC 6 Music, has described Stylusboy as A leading light among today's new generation of DIY digital troubadours
Dan Hartland
Dan Hartland's songwriting has been described as absolutely gorgeous by BBC Introducing, delicately lovely by Americana UK and as offering a fine balance between heartache and joy by Maverick magazine. He has most recently supported the likes of Americana and folk luminaries Mark Olson, Kim Richey and Lisbee Stainton and has earned a unique reputation as both a dynamic performer and thoughtful songsmith.
Gathering folk and roots influences from both sides of the Atlantic, and adding a knowing pop sensibility to his melodies and hooks, Dan puts feeling at the heart of every song. With a keen eye for character and a subtle turn of phrase, onstage Dan's kinetic guitar picking and witty storytelling cut through the usual tropes of the lonesome troubador, situating the sensitivity of his songs within often wry, quirky contexts.
Crybb
Crybb draw on a steadily increasing repertoire of Self penned songs inspired by the county of Northamptonshire and wider world, as well as drawing from the vast well of traditional songs and music. They have a vast array of influeneces between them, but include All about Eve, Ralph McTell, Show of Hands, Suzanne Vega and Terry St.Clair, amongst others. With two albums to their name, they continue to grow as writers and performers and find themselves in more and more demand
