***

Melanie Brandton

Slaloming between belly laughs and gut-punching candour, Melanie Branton’s poems cover love, class, failure, stubbornness and her thirty-year failed quest for a boyfriend. She has appeared at festivals including WOMAD, the Bristol Poetry Festival and the Wolverhampton Literary festival and has represented Bristol in three national slam finals. She has two collections: Can You See Where I'm Coming From? (Burning Eye, 2018) and My Cloth-Eared Heart (Oversteps, 2017)

“A fantastic poet with a great mix of dry humour and real-life heart and emotion.”

- Harry Baker

“Melanie Branton is an unexpected poetry slap. The kind that makes your face tingle and your eyebrows sky rocket. She is funny, clever, ironic, dry, gripping, needed and you won’t see her coming until she is standing in your face.” - Liv Torc

Jade Stanger

Singer songwriter, actress, and London born and bred, Jade trained at both the BRIT school and Italia Conti. After taking a break, spending 2016 travelling and most of this year writing, Jade has grown into a more grounded and secure artist. Jade's an open-minded individual that strives to live her life consciously and mindfully. From her own experience Jade believes that in order to get closer to reaching your true potential, you have to live in your truth. As difficult as it may be, Jade has learnt to let herself be raw and real. If anything, with her music she wishes to inspire people to live life for themselves whilst still helping each other to grow.
