Genevieve Dawson is a singer songwriter originally from Edinburgh, now based in South-East London. Bringing together a frank lyrical style with a warmth and soulfulness that inhabits the same alt-folk terrain as Laura Marling and Ani DiFranco, her rich and sophisticated sound pulls influence from jazz and folk in equal measure. She has recently completed studies in composition at Goldsmiths University of London, following in the footsteps of James Blake and Rosie Lowe, amongst many other esteemed alumni. She plays tonight backed by her full band.

Welsh folk singer-songwriter Osian Rhys' music is a blend of gentle guitar plucking and ethereal, haunting vocals. His songs take form as folk hymns laced with a pop sensibility, rolling chord progressions and soaring melodies. Osian's debut release 'Long Time Gone' was released on Backwater Records, with live performance highlights including Glastonbury Festival and End Of The Road Festival.

"Music is at it's most powerful when it stops you in your tracks and implores you to drink in and savour every last note. Welsh folk singer-songwriter Osian Rhys achieves exactly that. From the first strains of the harmonica, you'll be hooked." - Right Chord Music
