THE LINE UP ★ ★ ★
►Falling Dan (Band) // Folk / Indie
"Falling Dan is the alias of gifted songwriter Daniel Monks.
Songs based upon beautiful uplifting melodies; direct, rhythmic strumming coupled with delicate finger picked cat’s cradle-like guitar parts amid tales of murder, love, hope and redemption delivered in his striking tenor.
The Falling Dan band is Mark Lawson, Bass (The Egg) & Martin Maidment, drums (Santa Dog, Dalmaine, Radon Daughters).
“Think Nick Jones, John Fahey married to the off- kilter sensibilities of Guided By Voices’ drinker-in-chief Robert Pollard and you’re getting close...Falling Dan, rising talent.”
►David Green // Acoustic / Alternative
"Captivating finger-picked rhythms and songs that tell lyrical stories of wanderlust, idealism, break-ups and make-ups. Rarely does a songwriter explore the guitar’s potential as thoroughly or as imaginatively as Dave does. Several novels and travels to unusual places inspire thoughtful lyrics and his live set is full of charm and humour. A unique talent - not to be missed"
►Duncan Stagg // Rock / Americana
"Duncan sings stories about Tigers and Ship Captains, Partying Angels and Projectionists. Characters and melodies play out over rustic guitar arrangements, evoking modern troubadours such as Ryan Adams, A.A. Bondy, John McCauley and Sam Beam. Duncan recorded his debut E.P. with the Threadbare Band, a core comprising of of drummer Jai Widdowson-Jones and multi instrumentalist Alex Hawker. Produced and engineered by long time friend Mike Isaacs."
►Eléa Calvet // Acoustic / Blues
"Elea Calvet is an 18 year old Bristol based singer songwriter. Full of attitude and verve, her urban grungy blues and soulful lyrics will draw you into her private world."
►Jon Sinnott // TBA
►Amie K // Folk-Fusion
"Singer songwriter hailing from Wiltshire in England, but born and bred in London. Self taught guitarist and singer, Amie has been writing and performing her own material since 2013. Influenced by Fall Out Boy, Fort Hope and Ed Sheeran amongst others."
