Kobo Town-Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town’s music has been variously described as “an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae and trombone-heavy brass” (The Guardian) and a “unique, transnational composite of rhythm, poetry and activist journalism.”(Exclaim!) From their home in Toronto, the JUNO (Canadian Brit Award Equivalent!) -winning group has brought their distinct calypso-inspired sound to audiences across the world, from Port-of-Spain to Paris and from Montreal to Malaysia.

Mad Apple Circus- An original blend of horn-fuelled styles, built on Ska/Hip-Hop/Jazz and Latin grooves – nothing but the good stuff. Owing to their unique sound and energetic performances, this hard-hitting, humble Bristolian nine-piece have fast become festival favourites and a popular choice among promoters in the UK and Europe. MAC have been busy sharing stages with some of the industry’s finest. Notable greats include UB40, The Beat, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, The Skints, Suburban Legends and Hot 8 Brass Band. Already having ticked off slots at a whole host of festivals, last year alone they set crowds alight at Secret Garden Party, Sunrise, BoomTown Fair, Symmetry Festival and Glastonbury to mention but a few.

Lonely Tourist - 'Classic underdog pop music' - Steve Lamacq
Bristol based Glaswegian Lonely Tourist has just released his fourth album Remuneration. Steve Lamacq chose one of the tracks Frank the Barber as one of his 'Lamacq Liveners' (played every day for a week on BBC 6music). Other singles from the album, Luxury Coach and Last Day at Tony's have also featured on 6music's Gideon Coe's show as well and being Radio Scotland singles of the week. In September 2018 Steve Lamacq picked Lonely Tourist's, Ballad of Paul Tierney as one of his 25 at 25 (one of his favourites in 25 years of radio).

The LBJB 's- Formed in late 2014 , Bristol based heavy funk/soul supergroup ft. Kieron Bon Suis Dunne, Marcel Osborne, Billy Weir, Rafaelle Dornelles (Rafa Dornelles Trio) and Andrew Neil Hayes (Tezeta/Run Logan Run). Their high energy performances have secured them shows with heavyweights on the funk scene including the Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club. www.facebook.com/TheLBJBs/

Daisy Chapman- A songwriter in demand. Frequently compared to Regina Spektor, Nick Cave, Eva Cassidy & Kate Bush, Chapman’s unique voice soars high over dramatic strings & Nyman-esque piano. Her powerful vocals attracting regular commissions for film & TV. Taking lyrical cues from the likes of Leonard Cohen, Chapman has found success in the US, Germany & Poland. Her album 'The Green Eyed' produced by Ali Chant (PJ Harvey, KT Tunstall, This is the Kit, Seasick Steve) won her an Independent Music Award. She has toured extensively and performed at many of Britain’s leading festivals including Glastonbury and 2000 Trees.
‘Instantly captivating’ The Independent

The Bristol Ensemble- A quartet of members of Bristol’s only professional orchestra. The orchestra holds a pivotal position in South West music. The Ensemble has worked with outstanding international artists and soloists, including Dame Evelyn Glennie. Film and TV engagements include music for BBC Bristol Natural History Unit and TV productions such as the David Attenborough series Life in Cold Blood.

Mike Crawford And The Various Sorrows- Soulful rock and roll. Mike draws inspiration from the pantheon of Cohen, Dylan, Cave,Buckley and further afield French chanteur Jacques Brel,with nods to the 60’s Soul and Blues he grew up on.Accompanied by his cutting edge band The Various Sorrows his music is dark and fluid and the lyrics reflect a life lived long and hard.

Mystic Mbira Music/ Chartwell Dutiro & Jori Buchel
Zimbabwean master mbira player Chartwell Dutiro's story begins in the sacred rituals of his home village. From 1986 to 1994 he recorded and toured the world with the legendary Thomas Mapfumo and the Blacks Unlimited. Chartwell currently performs alongside
mbira player and singer Jori Buchel. Having grown up playing classical violin in a variety of orchestras, Jori discovered the sound of the mbira while studying Cultural Musicology at the University of Amsterdam. She went on to play mbira at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and perform with Chartwell Dutiro & Spirit Talk Mbira.
