Annie Afrilu

Annie Afrilu writes powerful songs, sings from the heart and is the next generation of engaging performer. She first won a full scholarship to study classical music at the prestigious Trinity College of Music, then in 2014 Brit Award Winner Paloma Faith handpicked her to be her protégé. Annie supported Ella Eyra live last summer and has also performed in the world famous Abbey Road Studios where Mr. Samuel L Jackson jumped on stage! Nick Grimshaw, Paloma Faith, Idris Elba and Samuel L Jackson are all fans of her work.

“It’s clear Annie Afrilu is brilliant!” - Paloma Faith

Will Udall

Will Udall is a solo-looping act, singing along to some nice bluesy guitar, which also jangles in a pleasing Roger Mc Guinn style.

Dion Deverill:

Dion Deverill hails from Auckland, New Zealand. His passion for music started at the age of 14 and like many other artists starting out, took up piano lessons. He acquired a strong interest in Jazz music and consequently joined a jazz band and small group combo in which he performed with for many years. While studying music theory at Auckland University he developed a strong interest in electronic music production. He soon started composing electronica and performing in clubs and venues as one of New Zealand’s premier Electronic Acts under the moniker of 'Fluid'. A number of his original tunes had some airtime on NZ radio.

Following his move to the UK Dion focused on composing downbeat and developing his voice and guitar skills. After a year of practicing his tunes in his bedroom, a stubborn new year’s resolution, and some timely singing lessons, Dion took the plunge and has taken his act to stage. He has been performing for voice and guitar regularly since his debut in April 2011 and has performed at Glastonbury, The Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Sub Audio, and Boomtown Festivals, and internationally in the Philippines.

Angelo Vitiello

Angelo Vitiello is a singer/songwriter whose music is an eclectic mix of reggae hooks and soulful melodies coated in thought provoking lyrics. Angelo started playing the violin at 9 years old before substituting his bow for his guitar at age 15. With a combined love of the piano his style began to emerge into what it is today.

Having grown up in a trilingual household with an Italian Filipino family he has gained perspective on the world and its cultures, which is expressed through his music.

Sebastian Blake:

Sebastian Blake is the Singer/songwriter extraordinaire from London. He started his music venture singing on beaches and in local bars in Brighton where he was studying electrical engineering but volt-faced to pursue his passion for music. Since then he has been sharing his rhythm-driven songs and shaking up the scene; his musical style as he calls it an "an injection of rhythm, Pop and Soul”. Sebastian was soon scouted as a result of these energetic live performances and invited to play at the 2012 Olympic and Paralympics games and a special performance at the Tate Modern in April 2013.

Seb has quickly racked up an army of 20,000+ followers from his live shows and his very energetic but humble social interactions with members of the public and extended fans all without a release of an official EP. He has also founded his own record Label (Laboremus Records) and will be releasing his Anticipated SP (Short Play) later this year.

"I don't have any agenda except to be a better artist in the next two weeks then the preceding two weeks"
