About this Event

The 8th edition of our showcase series...

____

The Family Dog

Four Brothers from Barnet, sounds like steely, the band, laughing dogs, white denim & early kings of leon, with a British youth fuelled zest

Martin Lloyd Chitty

Martin Lloyd Chitty is a singer-songwriter, a multi-instrumentalist and a composer, based in London and Lancaster, UK. His distinctive strain of atmospheric folk blends lyrical storytelling with impeccably crafted melodies.

On stage, Martin wears his heart on his sleeve, delivering a raw and emotive performance, his spine tingling baritone alternately murmuring and soaring over sparse instrumental arrangements.

Martin has opened for acts such as The Wave Pictures, Great Lake Swimmers, King Creosote, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Baby Dee, Scout Niblett, Thomas Truax and The Coral.

Georgia Maria

Described as “Joni-meets-Joan-Jett”, London-based, turbocharged acoustic rocker Georgia Maria first appeared on the scene at the onset of 2019, armed with her distinctive brand of ultra-melodic, prog-tinged folk-rock. The Camden native - already something of a veteran with years of experience playing in bands and doing guitar sessions and function gigs - channels her diverse musical experiences and “hands-on” education, into a sound that combines classic folk songwriting savvy with rock’n’roll intensity and an undeniably infectious dose of front-and-centre-stage, foot-on-the-monitor attitude.

As a teen Georgia gained a following on YouTube with home videos of her guitar playing, so impressing one couple in Canada that they gifted her with a home-made guitar designed especially for her, which she plays to this day. A move to London’s long-standing music mecca of Camden Town at the close of 2018 prompted a move towards a true calling: finally writing and performing her own material. An exuberant, yet fiercely committed live performer with a voice often compared to PJ Harvey, Grace Slickand Mac-era Stevie Nicks, Georgia has some 400 gigs already under her belt and it shows: she commands the stage entirely by herself, supercharging the familiar girl-and-her-guitar sound like Keith Moon on a six-string, her signature rhythmic guitar style keeping the energy levels consistently high.

Georgia has performed at Standon Calling Festival and at renowned London venues including the Hope & Anchor, the Fiddler’s Elbow, the Dublin Castle and The Bedford, and has opened for progressive rock band The Room at Jagz Ascot as well as cult folk singer-songwriter Beans on Toast at Pryzm Kingston. She is currently gigging and writing extensively and recording her debut single, due for release in the summer with a full EP expected later in the year.

“I sense she may be a name to watch out for” - Ray Jones, Time Out / Talentbanq

“A truly gifted guitarist” - Jay Stapley, professional session guitar player (Roger Waters, Mike Oldfield)

MØSS

MØSS are a Brighton-based band featuring members from the UK and abroad. Their energetic, upbeat blend of pop, indie and post-rock elements have drawn comparisons to the likes of Foals, Currents-era Tame Impala and DIIV. After attracting the attentions of veteran judges (including Primal Scream’s Simone Butler and NME’s new music editor Matt Wilkinson) and the public alike with their first single ‘Pale Seas’, the band was shortlisted in the Berwick Street Calling competition. Following this and a successful UK tour, the band returned to Brighton to finish the recording of their next single and debut EP.

Calling Blue Jay

Twisted alt-folk with a hypnotic flavour ~ A deep blue sound for blurry thoughts

New album 'Indigo Dreams' was released on the 22nd of February including opening track `The City Shake` which received airplay on BBC 6 by Tom Robinson calling out its intensity.

Calling Blue Jay is the project of Belgian songwriter and musician Marieke De Keukelaere, alongside Latvian violinist, Maris Peterlevics, both based in London. The music can be described as atmospheric alt-folk/ dream pop, a sound that is simultaneously intimate and powerful. Creating an otherworldly melancholy, the listener is taken to a landscape somewhere between the desert and the sea where nothing is what it seems. Seeking to explore complexities through self-reflection and visualisations, lyrics taste bittersweet and performances are known to be intimate and captivating.

New album Indigo Dreams explores the boundaries of alluring yet precariously foolish dreams.

"reminiscent of Let England Shake-era PJ Harvey" ~ For the Rabbits about 'The City Shake'

"the lush ambience conjuring open spaces at dawn or dusk, a kind of crepuscular sadness" ~ Various Small Flames about 'Indigo Dreams'

"Gorgeous, other-worldly folk music." ~ Folkroom Records
