Sean McGowan
Raised on a diet of The Clash, The Jam, Specials, Billy Bragg and other such politically-charged, punk-ignited British pop, Southampton-born troubadour Seán McGowan had been playing up and down the UK for two years, and DIY released two EPs (given away / sold on a pay what you want basis at shows), before catching the ears of the music industry at 2013's Great Escape festival.

An appearances on Billy Bragg's Left Field stage at Glastonbury that year saw Seán exposed to his biggest audience yet, and touring / playing shows with artists the likes of Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, The Rifles, Beans On Toast and Frank Turner

Anna's Anchor
From Limerick, that is in Ireland-pop pickers.
If you're looking for songs with genuine character and an intriguing story then look
no further than Anna's Anchor.Created after a summer of playing dive bars in Montana,Anna's Anchor is the indie Alt/Rock project of Limerick musician Marty Ryan (Going 90). Taking strong influences from bands such as Interpol,Brand New
and Smashing Pumpkins.

Mark Taylor
From (yes) The Pin Ups in rareish solo gig.
As seen (solo) only before in France and Thailand.
The best front man of a generation.
The Pin Ups nearly brought down the
goverment...sort of.
The Pin Ups were signed to Deceptive Records (Elastica/Snuff...) by Steve Lamcq
Best band to come out of Tilehurst....ever.
Do not expect the hits.
Maybe a genius,though....
