Line up!

Afro Queen
Brum native AfroQueen blends gentle Neo-Soulesque melodies with viscous 140 flows that captivates her audience swooning for their heart and spinning them out their buggz.

Jabez Walsh
Birmingham born singer/songwriter Jabez Walsh, is a self made musician & vocal coach. His memories of performing stretch to as young as the age of three where he would sing solos in church and play the cello, piano, and steel pans. He uses his experiences of past traumas to channel positivity into performing and arranging widely varying genres of music. His main passion is to invest in young people and their musical interests, and to use his gentle and mellow vocals to address current issues in society, especially as applies to people of colour.

AyoWrote ft Cari
AyoWrote is a spoken word artist from London who is increasingly gaining stealth on the pathway to being internationally recognised. He prides himself in having an overt performance style that relies on the subtleties of word play and a peculiar form of retrospective story-telling. Having performed since the age of 15- and working close with Suli Breaks since then- at age 23- his sound and writing style has undoubtedly flourished into what it is today. Yet his style of performance remains the same: projective, charismatic and heartfelt.

Belinda Zhawi
Belinda Zhawi’s a Zimbabwean born writer, educator. She’s co-founder & host of the bi-monthly poetry social, BORN::FREE. Belinda was the 2016/17 Institute of Contemporary Arts Associate Poet. She’s currently based in London, working on her debut pamphlet.
