KINGSLEY CHAPMAN & THE MURDER: As frontman and creator of north eastern English artrock band The Chapman Family, Kingsley flirted continuously between success and failure for a number of years before finally agreeing to call time on the group in the summer of 2013. 
His new seven piece band The Murder take their musical references from the mythology of iconic rock and art. They are a dizzying mix of thundering drums, sparkling pianos, lush strings, skyscraping horns and barbed wire guitars all underpinned by a distinctly northern croon.Their debut single "Lovers" was released in July 2015 on the Too Pure label. It was championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC6music where it won Rebel Playlist and has also been played extensively on XFM (where it was John Kennedy's "hot one") and Amazing Radio. Every subsequent and previous recording the band has ever released has been played on BBC6music as well as various BBC Introducing shows across the country. In March 2016 they did a four track session for legendary DJ John Kennedy at Radio X in London which aired as their latest song (not a single, just a new recording), "The Children Scream", was his record of the week.

"Cape Cub's music goes straight for the gut. Emotional, no-strings-attached giants are penned in spades, ” - DIY

Emerging artist Cape Cub announced his second EP 6am, the followup to early-2016's rapturously received, Closer. The EP's lead track 'All I Need' displays a marked progression by Cape Cub, aka Chad Male, with euphoric indie pop hooks paving the way for his increasingly accomplished vocals. Produced by Cam Blackwood (George Ezra, London Grammar, Florence and the Machine), the track pushes beyond Chad's characteristic emotional heft with glittering synth riffs and a fiery chorus offering more than a hint of the potential he has to fill arenas the world over.

Where the Closer EP - supported by Radio 1's Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart and now streamed over one million times on Spotify alone - drew upon Chad's attachment to the stunning landscape and industrial decline around his home in the remote coastal village Marske-by-the-Sea, 6am absorbs more human themes: growing up and moving on, fighting the loss of youthful optimism, pursuing longterm ambitions, all whilst trying to maintain vital friendships and family ties. Speaking of 'All I Need', Chad said, "This is me saying 'things don't feel too good right now, I don't even know what's going on, but without you it'd be so much worse'."

The legacy of a man who threw it all away.A two piece gothic-electro outfit from Darlington consisting of Dave Saunders and Rob Irish. Their dark and cinematic soundscapes, combined with unhinged, baritone vocals, conceptualise the life and legacy of Charles Dickens' wastrel brother.Debut single, 'Shrines' available on Bandcamp:"It's atmospheric, roaring, full of despair, yet ballsy and glamorous." NE Volume Magazine "Utterly bizarre, but compellingly brilliant." Even The StarsDickensian gothic disco from the people who brought you Goy Boy McIlroy." NARC Magazine"Wonderfully dramatic gothic torch songs." Kingsley Chapman in Evening Gazette
