Big Jacket — facebook.com/bigjacketband
Big Jacket are a well balanced band from Essex! With folk roots to their sound they explore most genres that base around guitar including country, pop and rock.
With influences like Kings of Leon, the Lumineers, Ryan Adams and Ben Howard you can expect great live vocals, bass and drums to get your feet stomping and a violin to prick your ears, Big Jacket have something for everyone!
Romances — facebook.com/romancesband
«Romances are nice but they can also get you killed, put you in jail and ruin your life, so with a name like that, you can get as heavy as you want.» — Henry Rollins.
It would be romantic to suggest that in a small bar in Finsbury Park, a Mexican, an Englishman, an English Romani, an Italian and a Swedish Arab could meet and form a band, their only goal to make rock and roll a thing of the present and of the future. Romances are indicative of what makes their hometown of London beautiful — International multiculturalism, freedom, expression, creation and rock and roll.
Miracle Glass Company — facebook.com/miracleglasscompany
MIRACLE GLASS COMPANY maximise the power of 3 with drums, bass and guitar, 3 lead vocals and 3 part harmonies combining to make a sound that has to be heard to be believed. Fusing psychedelic rock’n’roll with pop sensibilities, blistering musicianship and three unique voices, Vic Galloway (BBC 6 Music) described their show at XpoNorth as ‘the best gig I’ve seen in years’. On their debut album ‘MGC 1’ The List said it ‘conjures up memories of the Lennon/McCartney partnership at the peak of their powers’. Relentless touring has built a fiercely loyal fan-base across the UK, including the likes of Kyle Falconer from The View who recently announced on Twitter ‘you will not see a better 3 piece, scrap that, you won’t see a better band!!’
The Ha'pennies — facebook.com/halfpennies
Two Welsh reprobates and some other bloke from Birmingham.
8&Grey — facebook.com/8andgrey
Formed of three London based scallywags, The Bay launched in 2013 with an electric first gig at The Beatrice, Camden and hasn’t looked back since.
After performing extensively throughout London, it was time to take stock and get back in the studio. A three track demo, and name change later, we are ready to take the next step on our musical journey as 8 & Grey
Blending indie, post-punk and straight up rock and roll, 8 & Grey create gracefully and energetic songs about the mundane of everyday life, love and loss all delivered with a hint of humour, melodic choruses and intricate rhythms.
Gilly Lovel — facebook.com/gillylovel
'Gilly Lovel are an up and coming indie-rock band hailing from North London, with influences from bands such as 'Foals, Glass Animals, Catfish And The Bottle-Men, etc...' Since Releasing they're debut EP '57' in April 2016, Gilly Lovel have gone on to tear up the london indie rock scene with driving back beats, anthemic melodies, and rich vocals.'
Scott Swain & the Sinners — facebook.com/scottswainmsuic
Scott Swain is a singer-songwriter from South London. Think The Smashing Pumpkins meets Matthew and the Atlas, or The National meets (early) Radiohead. Either way, Scott’s music is best accompanied with whiskey and a smoke. Debut EP out May 2018.
