GAVIN OSBORN -
Mixing the personal with the political, Gavin Osborn has spent fifteen years entertaining audiences across the UK, Europe and Australia with his deft lyricism, evocative heartwarming storytelling and quick wit.
Gavin is known from his tours with the likes of Grace Petrie and MJ Hibbett, and for his airplay on BBC Radio 4 and 6 Music. And, in the midst of the utter madness that is 2020, he also released a charity single 'Born In The NHS', which clocked up nearly half a million views after being featured on Russell Howard's Sky One show, “Russel Howard’s Home Time”.
Gavin has so far released five acclaimed solo albums. The Observer called his last album (Echo Bridge) “One of the year’s most relatable releases, a record about being frustrated, angry, bewildered and aware of the utter ridiculousness of a world that has moved past your point of understanding”.
He supported Belle & Sebastian on a UK tour, and as part of Robin Ince’s Book Club, played two sold-out shows at Hammersmith Apollo. A regular on the UK festival circuit (Latitude, Green Man, End of The Road), Gavin is currently working on his sixth record, with his band The Comment Section.
“Simultaneously hilarious and heart-rending songs” - Independent Weekly
“Completely wonderful. A genuine, wistful treat for anyone finding themselves past thirty and seeking a soundtrack to a good brew.” – The Quietus
“Gavin Osborn writes minutely detailed, bittersweet story songs and sings them with a comic timing usually absent from his anti-folk contemporaries” - Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times
"You will Laugh, Cry, Dance, Sing and Drink along with Friends and Strangers Alike!”
James Harriman takes a classic Folk-Rock sound and collides it with Brit-pop influences and a ‘Rock N Roll’ attitude creating a sound that brings old and new together. He delivers a non-stop, high energy live persona alongside catchy choruses and strong lyrics. James writes songs that are designed to be listened to, often touching on deeper themes such as relationships and mental health that contrast with the upbeat happy sound of the music.
James has performed across the UK in legendary venues such as “Moles” (Bath) and “The Rainbow” (Birmingham), has played many big events including “The Bath Festival Finale Weekend” and “The Birmingham Weekender" and has been a favourite on the festival circuit. James Is currently working in the studio on his debut album where he promises to push his sonic boundaries even further.
Over the past four years James has grown a dedicated following and a reputation for high energy live shows.

Her Acoustic Indie Pop songs tell stories of her life and the world around her- Love, heartbreak, lesbian drama and cups of teas- The usual from a young gay British musician. Their lyrics are sometimes a tongue in cheek, emotional and full of real life.
Their raw British vocals are unique to her sound and pack a real punch to her songs. Her punchy and sometimes sweet acoustic guitar style and belting vocals combined create a new, edgy and vibrant sound. Expect Kate Nash, PJ Harvey and Lily Allen inspired original material with a hint of Joni Mitchell. Robynne has grown up on stage and take inspiration from all types of music, her favourite being alternative, indie and folk a hint of pop, (but don't tell anyone)
Robynne Performs her self-written original material and her own cover versions of big songs live at music venues, music festivals, live events, functions, weddings and anywhere that people will listen to her. They see performance like a therapy session- You should probably charge her for your time. She has been performing and constantly writing since she could talk, much to the annoyance of her triplet sisters.
