Robert is searingly honest Liverpool singer-songwriter whose mix of folk, rock and country is like a Mersey Van Morrison or a Scouse Springsteen.
Born in 1981, in Crosby, North Liverpool, into a house that rang to the sounds of Johnny Cash, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, Robert knew before he was five years old that he wanted to be a musician. Results started with the release of his first two EP releases, “The Bomb” and “My Pill”, as well as his raw and righteous current single, “Riot’s Cry”, which has been picking up airplay across the BBC from the likes of Janice Long on Radio 2 and Radcliffe & Maconie on 6Music, as well as sessions and interviews on 5Live and BBC London and on October 10th 2012 it was announced that Robert has been nominated for Male Artist of The Year at the prestigious Liverpool Music Awards. The debut album, “Life In Easy Steps”, released in January 2013, is preceded by the album’s title track as it’s lead single. http://robertvincentmusic.com/
Sam’s summer of 2012 single ‘This Girl’, doffed its cap to classic Motown, blue-eyed soul and general good-time intelligent pop, and clocked up over a quarter of a million YouTube views. Think Otis Redding meets the more ballad-driven strains of Elvis Costello with a dash of the Style Council and you’re getting there.
Born and raised in Hull, a move to Manchester saw him discovered by legendary drummer Steve White (Paul Weller, The Who, Oasis) who became his manager, producer and general overseer. White, along with his team secured Sam a publishing deal with Notting Hill Music and a recording contract with the Transmission Recordings label. He also got Sam in the studio with highly sought after producer, Brendan Lynch (Weller as well as Primal Scream and Ocean Colour Scene).
Currently touring around the UK ahead of a new single & brand new album, Too Much Of A Good Thing’ released on 4 February 2013. Like ‘This Girl’, the album has definite echoes of Motown and soul, kicked through with modern textures and a contemporary feel. http://www.samgray.co.uk/

by MTV US. Ruby is currently setting up ʻBadmanʼ, her album, more song writing, live shows, proﬁle building and March will see her release a new 4 track EP
Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker
Those who have been following the folk revival movement will already know about Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker. Both classically trained, Josienne’s voice and style has been compared to June Tabor, and Ben’s vintage guitar and mandolin lends the perfect musical tact. Leading lights of the emerging folk scene, they won the 2012 Isambard Folk Award. http://josienneclarke.bandcamp.com/album/one-light-is-gone
Callum Stewart from Magherafelt in Northern Ireland is a fifteen year who has always been mad about music. And his passion for singing has led him to release his debut single ‘Where is the love’, a cover of The Black Eyed Peas massive No1 hit. Cullum’s twist on the original delivers a huge piece of pure feel good indie pop.
‘‘Where is the love’ is such a great set of lyrics for our time’ says Callum. ‘It doesn’t matter where you come from – Northern Ireland of North America – we all need the constant reminder to keep looking for the good stuff, the small everyday actions that transform the ugly to the beautiful.’ http://www.facebook.com/CallumStewartMusic
Born in London to a British mother and Norwegian father, Sasha began playing the ‘cello and writing, recording and performing her own songs at an early age. This year, Sasha will release her debut album – knots and do-nots – a collection of songs that entice us on an adventure to the frontiers of song and psyche.
Sasha studied music at Cambridge and Harvard and by her early twenties, she had written music for the London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Opera House, Rambert Dance Company, Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2010 she became one of the youngest people to win a prestigious British composer award.
