David Fisher who is based in London, England.
His new album Honeytrap has now been released and includes a selection of top musicians who have worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Dire Straits, Bono and Bill Clinton to name but a small few. The interest the album has received has already resulted in a large number of BBC and local FM radio stations picking up on his unique sound, with his new single already proving to be extremely popular with listeners.
As well as promoting his new single, David Fisher also works with a large number of other bands and artists as a producer in his home studio, has a degree in Philosophy, gets paid for writing songs for CDs that accompany educational books by Oxford University, and also cut a Christmas single with Punk Poet Laureate John Cooper Clarke….

Rob Finlay who is based in Hertfordshire, England.
Quoted as artfully blending the Acoustic Folk and Alternative Rock traditions to create a stunningly original yet familiar sound, despite playing music all his life, it was not until Rob Finlay went travelling to South America in 2009 and was sitting in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest that he realised he should form a band and perform more frequently.
The end result is his debut album which was produced by Adrian Hall who has worked with the likes of Big Deal, Alicia Keys and the Sugababes to name but a small few. His backing band also has some big hitters including Patrick Murdoch on guitar who most recently toured the USA with Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders.
