“Singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist, Amy Studt is set to release a new single, ‘I Was Jesus in Your Veins’ which is the first track and chapter in a series of songs that will be released every six weeks and will ultimately make up the overall story / track listing on Amy’s eagerly awaited new album. A narrative diary of depression, hope and redemption, the new long player is a bold and intimate set of heartfelt songs and is set to arrive later this year.”

“One of the most innovative artists around, Studt delivers haunting cinematic pop that recalls the drama of Scott Walker and is creating some of the most beautiful and inspirational music in the UK right now.

“A truly engaging live performer.”

Natalie McCool is a singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist and visceral front woman. She has picked up a fast growing support base of fans and critics alike with her truly innovative and beautiful take on pop music. Latest album ‘The Great Unknown’ was self-written and is without doubt McCool’s finest and most accomplished set of songs to date with 1st single ‘Dig It Out’ described as “a mesmerising lilt pop gem” in The Sunday Times, and 2nd single ‘Cardiac Arrest’ being immediately playlisted on BBC Radio 1.”

“A vibrant, contemporary artist with quick-witted lyrics not only has she performed extensively across the UK with two headline album tours under her belt and appearances at Isle of Wight, Festival No. 6 & Kendal Calling, she has also played shows and festivals worldwide counting Europe (France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Estonia, Croatia, Holland).”

“Natalie recently completed work on her follow up. A brand new collection of songs that capture and crystallise her memories from both childhood and adulthood, weaving deeply intimate stories that channel life’s most vital thoughts and feelings like love, jealousy and loss into a skewed mixture of lilting yet gloriously catchy pop songs. Her new album is a new beginning, having brought on board a label (Modern Sky UK) for the first time in her career, it sets an ambitious tone for this exciting artist.”

“Audrey’s Dance are a two piece sad-pop band from Lancashire. After recently finishing their debut EP ‘Library Dreams’ and an overwhelming reception on single ‘Catching Crystals’ they begin the half year mini tour in home town Preston.”
